Donald Trump Jr. raised questions about Christine Blasey Ford’s “selective fear of flying.”
“I’m no psychology professor but it does seem weird to me that someone could have a selective fear of flying,” he posted on Twitter.
“Can’t do it to testify but for vacation, well it’s not a problem at all.”
Ford, who has recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both teenagers, addressed her flying fears while recounting the alleged sexual assault on Thursday in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Ford acknowledged she traveled to Washington, D.C., for the hearing by plane. But Ford said she would have preferred congressional investigators traveled to see her, according to The Hill.
“I was hoping that they would come to me but then realized that was an unrealistic request,” said Ford, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California.
"That was certainly what I was hoping was to avoid having to get on an airplane, but I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane."
Ford conceded she traveled “fairly frequently” by plane for her hobbies and work.
And she noted she has traveled to Hawaii, Costa Rica and French Polynesia.
"Easier for me to travel that direction when it’s a vacation," she said.
