White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders got into a back and forth with CNN's Jim Acosta during the daily briefing on Wednesday over Judge Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford. It was the first briefing since September 10.
Acosta accused President Trump of mocking Ford during a campaign rally in Mississippi Tuesday night. Sanders pushed back and said while President Trump was stating the facts about Ford's failure to remember key details about an alleged assault from high school, Acosta regularly failed to accurate.
Sanders also defended Judge Kavanaugh and said both he and Ford have been victimized by Democrats using the nomination process as a political weapon.

.@PressSec: "I think both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh are the victims at the hands of the Democrats. I think it is absolutely disgraceful what they've done."
During an interview with Fox News Wednesday morning, White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway also defended President Trump's comments. Conway also warned about indicting all men in the era of Me Too.
