“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade said President Donald Trump “chose to blow it” when he questioned the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford at a rally in Mississippi Tuesday night.
Blasey Ford claims Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were both minors, pinning her down to a bed and trying to remove her clothing.
“[Trump] did go after the accuser because we know even the prosecutor from Arizona said there’s huge holes in the story,” Kilmeade said. (RELATED: Brett Kavanaugh’s High School Classmate Leaves CNN Host Speechless)
“We don’t know how she got there, we don’t know how she left, we don’t know who invited her. We don’t know how she knows Brett Kavanaugh. We don’t know what house it took place in. Is that enough to destroy somebody’s career, life and reputation? However, the tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides,” he continued.
Klimeade claimed Trump destroyed all the good will he built up in the press by weighing in on the Kavanaugh case and questioned the president’s strategy and “wisdom” in making the comments.
“Last night, he chose to blow it as the FBI is handing in the report as early as today. I wonder about the wisdom as much as the crowd loved it — I wonder about the wisdom tactically of him doing that,” Kilmeade said.
Trump questioned Ford’s version of events and pointed out discrepancies in her story.
“‘I had one beer,'” Trump said. “‘How did you get home? I don’t remember. How did you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember. How many years ago was it? I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.'”
Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona called the comments “appalling” on NBC’s “Today” Wednesday and said there is never a time or place for such remarks.
