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.

Amendment 4—a Florida referendum restoring voting rights to former felons—passed in 2018 with 65% of the vote, paving the way for an additional 1.4 million voters in the swing state.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis immediately took steps to undermine the public will by signing into law a bill that would only restore voting rights to felons who fully pay all fees and fines imposed after leaving prison.

Under Florida law, court debts left unpaid after three months are referred to private debt collectors, who can then tack on a surcharge of up to 40%.

Now that the impeachment articles have been transferred to the U.S. Senate and Senators have been sworn in as jurors, Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial is officially underway.

And while it's adjourned for the long weekend, the White House just announced their legal team, and it's a doozy.

In addition to lead attorneys Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, Trump's legal team will consist of five additional lawyers who are expected to have speaking roles on the Senate floor throughout the trial:

  • Robert Ray
  • Alan Dershowitz
  • Ken Starr
  • Jane Raskin
  • Pam Bondi
Yep, you read that right, Ken Starr, of Clinton impeachment infamy.

And none other than Monica Lewinsky herself weighed in with a reaction that was relatable AF:

Many were here for it and had Lewinsky's back.





But doesn't that sentiment pretty much define every day?



And how is that going to. go for Starr?

Fair:

Can we make this happen, please?
