It's a Very Scary Time for Young Men in America

President Trump called out Dr. Christine Blasey Ford Tuesday night during a MS rally for not remembering key details about the day she claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

Mr Flake called the president's comments "appalling", and Ms Collins said they were "just plain wrong".

An ex-boyfriend of Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford told Senate investigators he witnessed her coach a friend on how to take a polygraph, contradicting her sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

"Oh, good. How'd you get home?" Addressing a rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump poked fun at Ford for her wrenching testimony before the Senate judiciary committee last week, where she recalled the assault she faced as a teenager.

Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, Flake said that "there's no time and no place for remarks like that, that discuss something this sensitive at a political rally".

'Dr. Ford never indicated a fear of flying, ' the person who asked to remain anonymous, because he didn't want to be involved in the Kavanaugh proceedings, said in the statement. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has said he wants senators to receive an Federal Bureau of Investigation briefing on its findings at least 24 hours before the chamber takes its first procedural vote on Kavanaugh, but Republicans have given no sign of assenting to that.

Flake voted to approve Kavanaugh in the committee's vote on Friday that sent the nomination to the full Senate, but he also insisted the FBI investigate the sexual misconduct allegations. That's the only thing I remember.

Ford's lawyers said on Tuesday she had offered her full cooperation with the FBI in its investigation but had received no reply.

The attack quickly drew scorn from critics, who said such mockery was part of the reason survivors of sexual assault are afraid to go public.

"The President has mocked people with disabilities, gold star families, women, immigrants, minorities and now Dr. Ford who bravely shared her story of sexual assault in front of the world", Pingree tweeted. She knew what she was up against when she came forward but spoke out because she felt it was her civic duty. "A man's life is in tatters", he told the raucous crowd.

As if the details of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's past behavior weren't already painful enough, on Monday night, the New York Times reported that he was once involved in a bar fight with a man he thought was the lead singer of that mostly white reggae band UB40 (of "Red Red Wine" fame).

Mr. McConnell said the report will be done this week, and the Senate will vote this week. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, to attorneys for Ford. But the rally's start was slightly delayed until just after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement pushing back on the report and suggesting that the newspaper should apologize for its reporting.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and is a frequent Trump critic, slammed Trump for the remark. Her vivid, specific and heartbreaking account invited contrast with the angry bickering over Senate rules and procedures by lawmakers, as well as Kavanaugh's subsequent combative testimony. A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, said that as a college student he exposed himself to her during a party.
