Trump just attacked a second woman reporter for calling him out on not answering her question

Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is currently enmeshed in a sexual misconduct scandal that threatens to scuttle his confirmation process entirely.

In the wake of Kavanaugh’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee as well as that of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, the FBI has been tasked with investigating the numerous allegations against him. After a lifetime of entitlement and immunity from consequences, he’s finally circling the drain.

The White House, not surprisingly, is digging in its heels to defend Kavanaugh. Our sexual predator president presumably sees a kindred soul in his Supreme Court pick and is unwilling to let the wave of credible accusations take him down. Today, while addressing the press, Trump defended Kavanaugh again and again.

Trump also sporadically snapped angrily at the reporters he was fielding questions from, letting his cheery facade slip to reveal the deep frustration simmering beneath.

During one lengthy, rambling bit he downplayed the accusations against Kavanaugh by talking about how lots of high schoolers “drink beer” and “go crazy.” While technically true, most people don’t drink beer and “go crazy” by attempting to rape someone. Being inebriated in high school is no excuse for Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior.

When a woman reporter tried to follow up his rambling defense of Kavanaugh she said: “So just to wrap up can you promise to—”

Trump immediately and rudely interrupted her. “You know what? You’ve really had enough,” he said, raising his hand to silence her. “Hey, you’ve had enough.” 

The shameful performance was unfortunately just the latest example of Trump disrespecting and attempting to silence a woman. He has proven himself habitually incapable or unwilling to extend the same kind of respect to women that he does to men.
