Kamala Harris calls Trump’s mockery of Christine Blasey Ford “mean”

President Trump’s mocking impression of Christine Blasey Ford during a rally on Tuesday has received backlash from politicians on both sides, including California Sen. Kamala Harris.

Harris has continually expressed her support of Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

The Hill reports an interviewer asked Harris at the Atlantic Festival in Washington, D.C. what she would have said to Trump about his mockery, to which she responded, “Stop being mean.”

“How did you get home?” Trump said at the rally, mimicking the prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was questioning Ford at the Kavanaugh hearing last Thursday.

“I don’t remember,” Trump said, acting as Ford.

“How’d 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,” Trump mocked.

Harris reminded the festival audience of a point in Ford’s testimony during the hearing in which she recalled Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, laughing during the attack.

“And so now we have, last night the president of the United States at a rally urging a crowd to laugh at her,” said Harris. “I can’t think of anything more — inappropriate is not descriptive enough. It’s mean.”

Many lawmakers have responded, including multiple Republicans, characterizing Trump’s mockery as cruel, according to The Atlantic. The video below shows some of these responses:
