The world is still reeling from the testimony of Dr Christine Blasey Ford at the US Senate.

Dr Ford repeated her accusations that president Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, sexually assaulted her at a high school party 30 years ago. Kavanaugh denies these allegations.

People from all walks of life have offered their support to Dr Ford. But, depressingly, the sensitivity of sexual assault and the credibility of her testimony are not stopping conservatives from trying to tear her down.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary picked prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Dr Ford, because they have yet to put a female senator on the committee. A few hours into the hearing, Mitchell pursued an odd line of questioning, asking Dr Ford how she can fly on planes if she allegedly has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of the alleged incident.

Supporters of this bizarre line of questioning include the bastion of reasonableness that is Donald Trump Jr, who recently mocked Dr Ford on Instagram.

But Trump Jr. seems to have forgotten that Ford did fly to testify in Washington. Not to mention the fact that she is, quite literally, a psychology professor.

Of course, Twitter users were quick to destroy Trump’s intervention.

To put it simply, some of the responses are nothing short of hilariously brutal.
