"A very scary time for young men"

'A very scary time for young men in America,' Donald Trump says

Donald Trump says now is a "scary time for young men", given they could become subject of false accusations of misconduct.

US President Donald Trump said Tuesday the reaction to decades-old allegations of sexual assault against his Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh makes it "a very scary time" for young men in the United States.

His remarks came as he responded to questions about allegations against the conservative jurist by three women who say Kavanaugh drunkenly sexually abused or harassed them when they were students in the 1980s.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.

Trump said Kavanaugh -- who denies the allegations and is adamant he did not drink to the point of blacking out, despite enjoying beer in his younger years -- has been treated unfairly.

"My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty. But now you're guilty until proven innocent," Trump said.

When asked by a Yahoo reporter Hunter Walker to provide a message to young women, the president replied: "Women are doing great".

His comments came as text messages from Mr Kavanaugh’s former Yale classmates reportedly show that the judge did lie when asked if he had prior knowledge about a second woman’s sexual misconduct claims.

NBC News reported that one of the classmates, Kerry Berchem, told the FBI that the texts showed Mr Kavanaugh “and/or” his friends “may have initiated an anticipatory narrative” to “conceal or discredit” Deborah Ramirez as early as July — two months before the New Yorker story was published.

The other classmate, Karen Yarasavage reportedly told Ms Berchem in a text message that Mr Kavanaugh asked her to go on the record to refute Ms Ramirez’s claims.

Last week, Mr Kavanaugh emphatically denied Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he sexually assaulted her at a gathering when they were teens.

He has also denied an accusation from Ms Ramirez, who said he exposed himself to her at a dorm party more than 25 years ago.

A third claim — from Julie Swetnick, who is represented by Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti — accuses Mr Kavanaugh of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women at parties in the early 1980s. Mr Kavanaugh denies that as well.

Former classmates have stepped forward to challenge Mr Kavanaugh’s testimony about his drinking.

Charles “Chad” Ludington, who said he was a friend of Mr Kavanaugh’s at Yale University and now teaches at North Carolina State University, called Mr Kavanaugh “a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker.”

Lynne Brookes, who said she moved in “the exact same social circles” as Mr Kavanaugh, said “when he would drink, he would get obnoxious.”

Ms Brookes said she remembered the night he was pledging to a fraternity.

“Brett was getting tapped in and he was incredibly drunk, in a ridiculous outfit and had to come up to me and sing a silly song,” she said. “He was so incredibly drunk. I find it not plausible at all that he remembers everything he did that night.”

But the White House released statements from two other Yale classmates who said they never saw Kavanaugh black out or treat women with disrespect.

It came as the FBI finished interviewing Mark Judge, the friend of Mr Kavanaugh’s who Dr Ford says was present when the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her.

Mark Judge, who has denied any wrongdoing, completed his interview with FBI agents as part of the reopened background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, said his lawyer, Barbara “Biz” Van Gelder.

She declined to say exactly when it ended or what Mr Judge was asked. She had said Monday night that the interview was not completed.

Mr Kavanaugh’s confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes.

One of them is Republican Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was greeted by hundreds of liberal protesters, victims of sexual assault among them, during an appearance on Monday in Boston.

Sen. Flake and Senators. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Mr Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote.

The votes of the three Republicans and those of red-state Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota will largely determine whether Mr Kavanaugh is confirmed.

If you're name is Hillary, yes. Of course.

What i loved was the "Women are doing really well" .... as though suddenly having the qability to be heard about sexual misconduct and abuse committed against us means we're somehow winning.

It's seriously twisted reasoning.

We'll be doing really well when we are no longer confronted with sexual misconduct and abuse thanks ... not just for when we inconvenience you by telling you we don;t like being grabbed anywhere at all, not even on the pussy.

Firstly I don't condone or accept the abuse of women or anyone
To me, the bloke is a moron, who most likely did what he is accused of. However it was more than 30 years ago and one can wonder whether it is vengeance or a real attempt to reveal what a scum bag he really is. Either way, as long as it doesn't turn into a vendetta against all men which is the way many dissatisfied deranged men hating women, are pushing as a very warped agenda.

The idiots of today have to take into account things were very different 40-50 years ago in the dating scene and you can't blame people for things they did and thought harmless, or good fun way back in the past. It was all a game of who gave in first, in my life and most of those I've known, when the girl said stop, you did. Asked her out next week and tried again. In the end you either got bored with each other or fell in love. Most times when it ended, it was mutual with no bad feelings and normally it was the girl who broke it off, with just about everyone of my mates.

When today it's classed by the PC nutters as serious assault. So it is getting to the stage where these fools seem determined o drive a huge wedge between mean and women, for what insane reason, they don't even know. They want revenge for their own failings in life an need someone to blame.

To me it is just another sign of a collapsing society, happening because of a growing social internal attrition and fracturing of relationships, hence the increase in domestic violence as people with chemically saturated bodies losing their minds to chemical imbalance. It's already evident this women's movement of men haters, has brought about a reality where many young people of today can't get out of their parents house and unable to have relationship with the opposite sex. See it all the time in my pubs, very sad to see the sexes so fearful of contact and commitment they avoid anything but a short term fling. luckily there are still many more sensible logical and loving men and women around who cherish the thought of a good normal relationship with the opposite sex. Once you have one, you never need anything else psychologically to satisfy you and they can only be attained when we have equality of opportunity in a relationship. There is no such thing as being equal, as with all life, we are all different and should celebrate those differences by combining them to create something wonderful in our lives.

After the way she's been treated, you seriously have to ask that question?

It utterly bewilders me that people ask that question.

It's as though they have absolutely zero empathy or compassion.

There are a few of reasons in my opinion, why these ancient accusations are being brought up. To reveal what type of person Kavanaugh really is and because many dissatisfied women are jumping on the feminazi bandwagon. It's also a veritable sign that the sociological collapse has reached into western societies and typically, clones jump on any bandwagon to get their few seconds of notoriety and no different to any other copycat event.

If you have a working brain and can see the reality, it's a scary time for everyone.

Brett Kavanaugh is a good man to be nominated for such a position.
He is a resilient man to withstand the sustained media accusations.

It seems that a sexual accusation from any woman is taken as being the truth by many people.
The poor man accused is immediately considered to be guilty by many people.

He is a pisshead and a liar.

But he is a RWNJ so gets elected to the SCOTUS. There he will help turn the US from a democracy into a theocracy. He will turn it into something like was portrayed in The Handmaid’s Tale.

bullshit. The guy should not even be in the running until any and all accusations are thoroughly investigated by independent prosecutors. Only once cleared, if cleared, should he be given the job.
Why the fuck would any sane person want someone who is guilty of sexual assualt on the supreme court? Clear him then put him on, otherwise find an alternative.

Obviously, the right view on Roe v Wade is more important than selecting someone who is not mentally and morally a lying piece of dog shit.
