Jones Criticizes Trump on Kavanaugh Accuser

Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) Wednesday criticized President Donald Trump, after he challenged the veracity of Christine Ford's testimony.  "It's incredibly unfortunate the President uses that kind of language, it just does nothing but further divide the country,"  Jones said.     Speaking at a rally in Southaven, Miss. Tuesday night, the President noted inconsistencies in the testimony offered by Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of a 1982 sexual assault, when both were teenagers.   "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!   Upstairs, downstairs, I don't know.   But I had one beer!"   Mr. Trump said, reenacting Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.    Responding to criticism, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded that the President was merely stating the facts.
