  • President Donald Trump on Wednesday said Democrats probably
    wouldn’t even vote in favor of George Washington if he nominated
    him for the Supreme Court. 
  • “If we brought George Washington here, and we say this is
    George Washington, the Democrats would vote against him,” Trump
    told reporters.
  • Trump was addressing sexual misconduct allegations against
    Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. 

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said Democrats probably
wouldn’t even vote in favor of George Washington if he nominated
him for the Supreme Court. 

“If we brought George Washington here, and we say this is George
Washington, the Democrats would vote against him,” Trump said to
reporters while addressing questions about Supreme Court nominee
Judge Brett Kavanaugh during a press conference in New York.

The president referred to Democratic Minority Leader Sen. Chuck
Schumer and his party as “con artists.”

“He may have had a bad past. Who knows?” Trump said of
Washington.

During a marathon press conference, Trump railed at
Democrats, who he said oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination for purely
political reasons. He repeatedly referred to sexual assault
allegations against the judge as a “con job.” 

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault or misconduct
by three women: Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie
Swetnick. 

Kavanaugh and Ford are set to testify on her allegations
against him before the Senate Judiciary Committee on
Thursday. 

As new allegations arose against Kavanaugh on Wednesday,
Senate Democrats
called for Thursday’s hearing to be delayed
. Senate Democrats
have led the charge in ensuring Kavanaugh’s accusers are heard,
also calling for the FBI to investigate the allegations. Along
the way, Senate Republicans and the president have accused
Democrats of intentionally delaying the confirmation
process. 

The Supreme Court nominee has vehemently denied the allegations
against him and Trump has stood by Kavanaugh amid the avalanche
of accusations. 

Trump on Wednesday said he believed many the
allegations against the judge to false
, but he stopped short
of calling Kavanaugh’s accusers “liars.”
