This morning, our sexual predator president finally did what we all unfortunately expected him to do and launched a disgusting Twitter attack on Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has credibly accused the president’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her when they were in high school.
Trump unleashed a deluge of tweets in an attempt to discredit Ford and whitewash Kavanaugh. He focused on the fact that Ford waited until Kavanaugh was nominated to share her disturbing story, ignoring the fact that she was too traumatized and scared as a teenager to come forward.
Our conman president tried to paint Ford’s decision to keep the incident to herself as suspicious, claiming that Ford’s attack couldn’t have been “as bad she says” because if it had been she would have filed charges at the time.
Of course, Ford’s trepidation is perfectly understandable given the wave of smears and death threats that have been unleashed on her since she decided to speak out. Things have gotten so bad that Ford has been forced to move, out of fear of some Trumpster trying to hurt her.
I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!

Now, rising Democratic star Congressman Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts is going viral with a short but poignant Facebook response to the president’s disgraceful behavior.
He stuck to the facts to refute Trump. Kennedy pointed out that 2/3 of sexual assaults are never reported and added that it’s hardly a surprising statistic when one considers the fact that out of every 1,000 rapes, 994 of the attackers go free.
Kennedy added that women are also afraid to come forward because men in power, men like Trump, immediately seek to discredit their credible claims. He’s absolutely right, and we need to start building a society where women feel safe. In order to do that, we’ll need more leaders like Kennedy and none like Trump.
