Meanwhile, President Trump, who had been somewhat restrained in his comments about all this, shifted course Tuesday at a political rally in MS, where he mocked Ford.

As of Tuesday morning, the Federal Bureau of Investigation still had not contacted Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the committee last Thursday that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school house party in the early 1980s.

"But I had one beer! But I had one beer, that's the only thing I remember, '" Trump said, as the MS audience laughed and applauded.

Ford testified that she could not remember the precise date or location of the alleged assault or how she got home afterward, but offered a detailed account of the incident itself in which she said a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth when she screamed. I don't remember. Where was the place?

"We ought to be doing all that we can to encourage [sexual assault survivors] to come forward - certainly not mocking them when they do", Scott Berkowitz, president of the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), said Wednesday in a phone interview with The Washington Post, explaining that most survivors are reluctant to report incidents to the authorities and many do not even talk to their family members or friends.

In a Los Angeles Times story - one of many that have described the president's love of the show, and the co-hosts' reciprocal fondness for the president - Kilmeade argued that he has taken Trump to task many times.

"I don't know. I don't know", the president continued to laughter from his supporters lapping up every word. I don't know. I don't know. 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs? "Well, do you think it was - nope, it was one beer", Trump said, mimicking Ford's testimony last week to the senate judiciary committee. That's the only thing I remember.

Lindsey Graham released a statement Tuesday, which in part reads: "I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court very soon". Kavanaugh has denied the accusations.

"The President's comments were just plain wrong", Collins told reporters in brief remarks before heading into a hearing of the Senate aging committee, which she chairs.

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Mr Trump said: "My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent". I respect her position very much.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Trump's insults of Ford marked a "new low".

The president warned about a unsafe and "damn sad situation" in the country where a man's life can be destroyed over accusations over misconduct and are assumed guilty instead of innocent. His wife is shattered, his daughters.

All signs suggest Democratic women are energised by opposition to Mr Trump's presidency and the primary season yielded record numbers of female candidates. "I thought Kavanaugh was treated like crap". I met him for the first time a few weeks ago.

"'What neighborhood was it in?' I don't know". "These are really evil people". "Think of your husband", President Trump told the rally, noting he has had "many false allegations" against him.

He then launched into an impression of a young man talking to his mom about accusations being leveled against him. "What do I do, Mom?"

And Mr Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, told the Daily Mail this week: "I've got boys, and I've got girls".
