Social media reactions to Kavanaugh-Ford hearing

Christine Blasey Ford received social media support as she testified Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s.

Ford’s voice cracked as she recounted the attack.

“I believed he was going to rape me,” she said. “I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming.”

Kavanaugh has denied the accusations against him made by Ford and others.

As Ford testified against Kavanaugh Thursday — something she says she was “terrified” to do — advocates, political figures and a lawyer for another Kavanaugh accuser weighed in on social media.
