Trump Jr. Pokes Fun At Blasey Ford’s ‘Selective Fear Of Flying’

September 27, 2018 12:52 p.m.

President Trump’s eldest son on Thursday said that he did not buy that Christine Blasey Ford could have flown on airplane trips multiple times despite her professed fear of flying.

“I’m no psychology professor but it does seem weird to me that someone could have a selective fear of flying,” Donald Trump Jr. cracked on Twitter. “Can’t do it to testify but for vacation, well it’s not a problem at all.”

Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, initially wavered about coming to Washington, D.C. to testify about her account because of her aversion to air travel. Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona prosecutor Republicans hired to do their questioning, asked Ford at length about previous flights she’d taken.
