Conservatives, Right-Wing Media Respond To Christine Blasey Ford's Testimony

While Blasey testified at a Brett Kavanaugh hearing, Donald Trump Jr., Fox Business News and others chimed in on social media.

As Christine Blasey Ford testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, responses from conservatives and right-wing media have varied.

Many expressed their doubts about Blasey, one of three women who have publicly accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, and examined her words under the microscope of social media over the hourslong hearing. Others indicated that they found Blasey’s testimony powerful — so much so that it changed their opinion on Kavanaugh.
