President Donald Trump accused Democrats of playing a “con game” concerning the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday.
“This is a con game being played by the Democrats,” Trump told reporters at the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
He stressed that “It is a shame you can do this to a person’s life.”
Trump cast doubt on the validity of the claims of both Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, saying that they are “totally unsubstantiated.”
Trump particularly took issue with Ramirez, claiming that “She says well it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she was totally inebriated, and she was all messed up, and doesn't know. It might have been him.”
The president then added sarcastically, “Oh gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that.”
Trump also lauded Kavanaugh as “one of the highest quality people” and praised his nominee’s denials as “so believable,” according to The Boston Globe.
The president particularly pointed to Kavanaugh’s credibility in a Fox interview when “He said when he was focused on being No. 1 in his class at Yale, to me, that was so believable. I understand college very well, being No. 1 in your class, I understand a lot of things.”
