On Tuesday, following an address to the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump attacked the women who’ve accused Judge Brett Kavanuagh of sexual assault and called the controversy a “con game” by Democrats.
“She was inebriated,” he said of Debbie Ramirez, who claims that when they attended Yale, Kavanaugh stuck his penis in her face at a party.
“It would be an insult to our country if this thing doesn’t happen,” he said about Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
The remarks were the strongest denunciation yet of the women who’ve come forward with allegations of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh in his youth.
TRUMP, during a UN meeting, defends KAVANAUGH: "Charges come up from 36 years old that are totally unsubstantiated?… and now a new charge comes up, and she says, it might not be him & she was totally inebriated… this is a con game being played by the Democrats." pic.twitter.com/rgqZL0QPaP
