On Thursday, after she told her account of sexual assault, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was questioned by sex-crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell. Mitchell wondered about the mental health problems that Dr. Ford attributes to her sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh.
In particular, she noted that Dr. Ford seems to have a fear of flying, yet has nevertheless traveled by air in the past—including to testify.
On Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. blasted out an attack based around the testimony.
"I’m no psychology professor but it does seem weird to me that someone could have a selective fear of flying. Can’t do it to testify but for vacation, well it’s not a problem at all," he wrote.
In response, he was dragged on Twitter.
