Donald Trump Jr. said in an interview with DailyMailTV that he fears more for his sons than his daughters amid the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
DailyMailTV asked Trump Jr., who has three sons and two daughters, who he worries about more in “an age when lives can be ruined on both sides of he-said, she-said sexual misconduct claims.”
“I mean, right now, I’d say my sons,” Trump Jr. said. “I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary.”
Trump Jr. also argued that people should consider the political motivations of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who claims Kavanaugh groped her at a high school gathering in the early 1980s.
“For the people who are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, it really diminishes the real claims,” Trump Jr. alleged.
The interview took place last week in Montana while Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, were campaigning for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale.
“I think it’s important, in terms of doing an investigation, to get the facts out there and find out,” Guilfoyle, a former prosecutor, added about the allegations against Kavanaugh. “It’s very tough thirty five years later, but it doesn’t mean it should be ignored.”
Dr. Ford’s claims have been called into question because of inconsistencies in her story, such as how many people were at the gathering and what year and how old she was when it occurred. Rachel Mitchell, the outside prosecutor chosen by the GOP to question Ford during last week’s Senate hearing, said she would not pursue prosecution if the allegations were turned over to a criminal case.
