Hartford, CT – Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski has so far refused to tell voters whether he believes Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s story or stands with Brett Kavanaugh.
But yesterday, President Trump made disgusting comments about Dr. Ford, the #MeToo movement, and sexual violence. Bob Stefanowski — and the entire GOP — ticket has a moral obligation to publicly repudiate Trump and reject these statements.
Yesterday afternoon, he said that this is a “very scary time for young men in America.”
And last night, Trump said this at a rally:
“Before the crowd Tuesday night in Southaven, Mississippi, Trump imitated Ford during her testimony, mocking her for not knowing the answers to questions such as how she had gotten to the high school party where she says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
“I had one beer. Well, do you think it was — nope, it was one beer,” Trump said, mimicking Ford’s testimony last week to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“How did you get home? I don’t remember. 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’s comments were met with laughter and applause from the crowd.”
We know that Bob Stefanowski gives Trump an “A” and we know he celebrated Trump’s endorsement.
We know that Bob Stefanowski refuses to tell voters whether he believes Dr. Ford or Brett Kavanaugh.
We know that Stefanowski stands for Trump values over Connecticut values.
But he does have a moral obligation to condemn these outrageous statements from the President — and he should do it now — because this is a new low.
