At the UN, Trump just went off on woman reporters who asked about Kavanaugh’s rape accusations

In a surprise turn of events, President Trump held a solo press conference this afternoon at the United Nations summit — his first in months — and opened up with a disgraceful slew of attacks against Kavanaugh’s accusers and accused the Democrats of orchestrating a “con job” against Kavanaugh, getting testy with reporters.

He was careful to not call the accusers “liars” but refused to answer a question about his own daughters and understanding why women might not have come forward at the time the crime was committed:

CNN’s Jim Acosta attempted to get an answer from the President about why he always sides with the accused men instead of the accusers — like accused pedophile Senate candidate Roy Moore — but instead got some preposterous nonsense, before getting visibly upset with him after Acosta asked him to call on female reporters.

But it was when a reporter asked him about his own sex assault allegations that he really went off the rails, accusing them all of being paid off and complained endlessly about the way that the “fake news media” spread the stories and refused to publish “the truth.”

He grew furious with the woman reporter and treated her with appalling rudeness, refusing to actually answer her question and even telling her to sit down. 

The president’s stunning rudeness and his furious response tells you everything you need to know about what kind of a man he is and what he really thinks about these appalling accusation against his Supreme Court nominee.
