My fervent hope [View all]

That Republican women sexual assault survivors, even those who have been fully on board with Donald Trump - especially them, will be taken aback and shaken by Trump's mockery of Dr. Ford's memory of having been assaulted. They know exactly where Dr. Ford has been even if they are not convinced that Kavanaugh himself is guilty They've lived with trying to cope with the trauma of having been assaulted. They understand suppressed memories but they too remember some indelible moments. It is true for tens of millions of American women, many of whom voted for Trump. Trump ridiculed them too when he ridiculed Dr. Ford.

Some of them may not find it in themselves now to speak up publicly, but voting remains a private act.
