WATCH: Donald Trump Says Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh Were ‘A Hoax That Was Set Up By Democrats’

Hoo boy.

The president came under fire last week after he, ahead of the Senate’s vote, taunted Dr. Ford during a rally in Mississippi.

“I had one beer!” Trump said, characterizing Dr. Ford’s testimony about her level of intoxication at the time of the attack.

“How did you get home?” the president asked, taking on the role of prosecutor.

“I don’t remember,” he said in his Dr. Ford voice.

“How did you get there?” Trump continued, reverting to his role as prosecutor.

“I don’t remember,” he replied in the Dr. Ford voice.

The president then mockingly asked and answered a series of questions with the responses “I don’t remember” and “I don’t know.” The crowd laughed and cheered behind him. A woman seated behind him held up a bright pink “Women for Trump” sign.

Kavanaugh’s fate was in the hands of several undecided senators, including Senator Susan Collins (ME), who in a much-maligned speech on the Senate floor, claimed that she believed Dr. Ford was assaulted, just not by Kavanaugh, despite Dr. Ford’s testimony that she could absolutely identify Kavanaugh as the perpetrator. She has since doubled down on her statements.

Dr. Ford has not been able to return home, her attorneys said, and faces a constant stream of death threats.

“This has been terrifying, her family has been through a lot,” Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, told MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt. “They are not living at home, it’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending, it’s deplorable.”
