Christine Blasey Ford finally told her story under oath.
No one could believe what she said.
And this one tweet exposed her biggest mistake.
Christine Blasey Ford Gives Conflicting Testimony
Ford claimed she could not immediately testify because she was afraid of flying.
She said she needed time to drive cross-country from California to Washington, D.C.
Trump supporters suspected she was not telling the truth.
They believed she was stalling for time.
This delay allowed two other women to make more baseless allegations against Kavanaugh.
Both women’s stories were so full of holes that the New York Times would not print them.
And after yesterday’s testimony, Republicans suspicions were proven correct by Ford herself.
She admitted her fear of flying was suspect.
Rachel Mitchell, the outside prosecutor hired by Republicans to question Ford, asked her how she got to Washington.
“I was hoping … to avoid having to get on an airplane,” Ford responded. “But I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane.”
Mitchell asked, “When you were here in the Mid-Atlantic area back in August, end of July, August, how did you get here?”
“Also by airplane,” Ford answered.
Mitchell noted that Ford likes to surf and has listed “Hawaii, Costa Rica, South Pacific Islands, and French Polynesia” as prime surfing locations.
“Have you been to all of those places?” Mitchell asked.
Ford said she had and that she traveled by plane to all of them.
Ford Has Major Credibility Issues
Ford lying about not being able to fly in for the committee hearing was just one of her major credibility issues.
Donald Trump, Jr. noted that Ford developed a very convenient fear of flying.
Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted:
“I’m no psychology professor but it does seem weird to me that someone could have a selective fear of flying.
Can’t do it to testify but for vacation, well it’s not a problem at all.”
Conservatives pointed out other issues with Ford’s testimony.
Mollie Hemmingway of The Federalist tweeted:
“Some people may find Blasey Ford credible. Others will not. That’s why evidence, and not subjective emotions, is the measure to use to seek justice. Ford came and left the hearing with no corroboration. Today also revealed some troubling inconsistencies.”
Ford’s testimony was emotional.
But it lacked substance, and most importantly, evidence.
She offered no corroboration for her claims.
And there were troubling contradictions.
The Washington Post reported her story based on the fact that they had reviewed her therapist’s notes from a 2012 counseling session.
However, Ford would not say if the Post actually saw her notes.
In addition, she could not give a straight answer as to how many people were at the party where she claimed Kavanaugh tried to rape her.
Trump supporters went into the hearing believing the Democrats were exploiting Ford’s claim for political gain.
Ford’s inability to deliver a credible testimony only further proved that theory.
