Conservative radio show host and former Republican lawmaker Joe Walsh called Donald Trump Jr. an “uncaring, narrow-minded idiot” after he shared an image mocking sexual assault allegations against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“No matter your take on the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, I think we all can agree that @DonaldJTrumpJr is an uncaring, narrow-minded idiot,” Walsh said of Trump Jr.

Walsh’s response came after Trump Jr. mocked the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor, who came forward publicly on Sunday and detailed her allegations against Kavanaugh to The Washington Post.
Ford, now 51, told the Post that Kavanaugh groped her, tried to pull off her clothes and covered her mouth when she tried to scream at a party in Maryland more than three decades ago.
“Oh boy… the Dems and their usual nonsense games really have him on the ropes now,” Trump Jr. wrote in an Instagram caption.
“[Feinstein] had the letter in July and saved it for the eve of his vote… honorable as always. I believe this is a copy for full transparency,” Trump Jr. added, posting a picture of a letter that reads, “Hi Cindy, will you be my girlfreind [sic].”
Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it,” the Post writes.
Ford told the Post that at the time of the alleged sexual assault she thought Kavanaugh “might inadvertently kill me.”
“He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing,” she said.
Her attorney, Debra Katz, said on Monday on NBC’s “Today” that Ford “believes that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Kavanaugh, she would’ve been raped.”
