Trump full of shit as usual

As Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault claim threatens to derail Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation, Republicans keep doubling down on their outrageous defense of Kavanaugh.

Donald Trump of course is one of the leaders of the smear campaign against Ford. Trump wrote on Twitter...

"I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!"

Donald, you idiot, there's reasons why victims don't always report violent crimes - and it can be true of not only sex crimes but also other violent offenses. Much of this is because the victim is afraid of retaliation or having their personal lives pawed through. Or it's because they know that people - even the entire community - will rally around the perpetrator. Some victims report a crime only to see themselves punished and the perpetrators rewarded - so they quickly learn not to report future crimes.

Victims learn the hard way never to complain. Ever.

There's no doubt that many crime victims carry secrets to their grave. The crime doesn't get reported within a day, or even a year. Not even 10 years. Or 20.

Or 30.

If the victim ever comes forward, the smear machine against them revs into high gear.

I don't see how in the hell anyone doesn't know all this by now - but Trump is a moron.
