Trump ripped into Ford at a rally Tuesday night in MS, claiming that the only thing in her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee she could remember that she only had "one beer" at the high school party in the 1980s at which she said she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh.
"A vote against Kavanaugh is a "yes" vote for more of these despicable tactics being used time and time again in the future", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, on the Senate floor Tuesday. But she doesn't know who invited her to the party or where it took place, how she got there or how she got home afterward.
"What neighbourhood was it in?" I don't know. I don't know! I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?
"I had one beer".
"I find that numerous voters we talk to aren't clear about this whole process, " Morial said.
Well, I say that it's a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of. Watch Flake's remarks on Today below. Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it". Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake called them "appalling", Maine Sen.
This is Trump speaking to reporters outside the White House.
The ridicule of Ford, delivered at the Landers Arena here in deeply conservative DeSoto County, is in stark contrast to the respectful way in which Trump and his aides had previously treated Ford's testimony, even as they have stood by Kavanaugh and his assertion that he never assaulted her or anyone else.
The 100-person Senate is controlled by the Republicans (51-49) but as the midterms are approaching, it may not stay that way for long.

The Republican senator who suddenly sits at the center of the explosive debate over President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick was set to address New Hampshire voters on Monday ahead of a possible run for president. On their part, Democrats dug out Kavanaugh's letters from his youth in which he wrote of he and his friends being "obnoxious drunks and prolific pukers".
The US president had earlier been conciliatory towards Ford, calling her a credible witness and saying he respected her position very much.
On Tuesday, Mr Flake said he was "very troubled" by the tenor of Judge Kavanaugh's "partisan" testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. On Friday, he voted to move the nominee out of committee but called for an FBI investigation into allegations made against Kavanaugh in order to gain more clarity on the matter before the full Senate votes on his nomination.
Kavanaugh has denied the accusations by Ford and Ramirez and those by a third woman, Julie Swetnick, who has alleged she was victimized at a party attended by Kavanaugh friends.
Trump limited the investigation to no more than a week. John Clune, Ramirez's attorney, said Saturday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had reached out to Ramirez.
And in a new twist, Conway did not hide that polling data showing support for Kavanaugh in competitive states is circulating throughout the West Wing. 'Where's the house?' I don't know.
She also blasted Democrats for allegedly hurting both Kavanaugh and Ford by "circumventing the entire system" in their approach to the accusations.
Murkowski said that Trump's remarks were "wholly inappropriate, and in my view unacceptable".
Republican officials and the White House expect Hyde-Smith's race to go to a runoff under the state's election rules that force a showdown between the top two finishers if no candidate wins at least 50 percent of the vote on November 6.
But in a written declaration leaked to the media on Tuesday, an unidentified ex-lover said that during their six-year relationship, Ford never exhibited any of the post-assault anxiety or fears that she detailed during her senate testimony.
