“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg on Friday slammed President Trump, who faces 20+ allegations of sexual harassment and assault, over his tweets attacking the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who has accused his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of unwanted sexual conduct.
“He has enough accusers to know why people didn’t come forward,” Goldberg said. “He’s heard it enough. We’ve heard this enough.”
“Women don’t want to come forward because of exactly what’s happening” to Ford, Goldberg continues.
Goldberg’s comments came after the president sent out tweets on Friday morning attacking Ford and questioning why she didn’t report her alleged sexual assault “36 years ago.”
If the sexual assault on Ford was “as bad as she says,” Trump tweeted, then “charges would have been immediately filed.”
“I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!” Trump wrote.
“The radical left lawyers want the FBI to get involved NOW. Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?” he wrote in another tweet.
The Hill added:
Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, which were brought to light Sunday in a Washington Post interview with Ford in which she claimed the Supreme Court nominee forcibly held her down and muffled her screams for help while trying to remove her clothes during a party while the two were high school students.
The White House has stood by the president’s nominee in recent days following the allegation, while the Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing Monday to address the accusation and hear testimony from Kavanaugh. Ford, who has been invited to testify as well, has not yet accepted the panel’s offer.
