Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, left a vexing note for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford ahead of her scheduled testimony before the Committee on Thursday.

"Good luck Dr. Ford," the note from Grassley read. It was placed on the table where Ford will be seated during the hearing.


The ambiguous nature of the note has people scratching their heads on social media.

Could Grassley be trying to be supportive? A couple of people think so.

Most, however, think it was highly inappropriate.

Speculation over the meaning of the note is varying widely. Some see it as an attempt at intimidation.

People want to know what "luck" has anything to do with the hearing, where Ford will testify under oath that she remembers Kavanaugh attempting to rape her at a high school party in the 1980's. Kavanaugh will also be offering his own sworn testimony.

The hearing is supposed to be fair and open, so "luck" shouldn't be a factor. The truth is what's important.

People are frustrated and confused.

“I feel like I have a definite responsibility to hold a hearing, not only for her but for Judge Kavanaugh,” Grassley told Reporters on Wednesday. “She's been waiting for ten days now to appear so why would we want to disadvantage her from doing what she offered to do a long time ago?”

That doesn't clear up anything, Senator.
