Donald Trump Is Reportedly 'Raging' Over Christine Blasey Ford's Testimony For Exactly the Reason You Think

Thursday, many in the United States watched the highly anticipated testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the confirmation hearing for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Dr. Ford alleged Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was 15 years old.

But people also wondered if Trump himself watched the proceedings. The President's preference for getting his news and information from television versus the printed word is well documented.


Now word from White House sources say Trump did watch Dr. Ford testify, or at the very least Fox News coverage of the testimony.

While the President can generally rely on Fox to give him good news, today's coverage even on that network presented Ford as "highly credible."

This bodes ill for the President's nominee, which cannot sit well with the man himself. And according to those same sources, it has not.

People found the stories of Trump's anger over the way Thursday morning's testimony went credible as well.

People could certainly understand why Ford's testimony would upset the President.

In addition to Ford's credible testimony, the GOP came off poorly during her portion of the hearing as well. With the midterm elections looming on the horizon, alienating female voters could prove disastrous in November.

As Brett Kavanaugh takes over to end the day's hearing, it is hard to say how the President will feel by  tomorrow morning.

Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, obstructing justice, and threatening a witness last year. When prosecutors recommended a seven to nine year prison sentence, Trump fumed on Twitter and the Justice Department subsequently overrode the opinion of its prosecutors, who resigned in response.

Today, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for his crimes, leading everyone to ask: Will Trump pardon one of his most vocal allies?

Republicans often claim their party has the upper hand with voters when it comes to fiscal responsibility. When a Democrat is in office, one of the chief complaints you can count on from Republican lawmakers is that the President is ballooning the deficit, or sending the federal debt skyward.

This hasn't quite been the case when it's a Republican President occupying the White House.
