I feel sick to my stomach. I imagine Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford watching this and I want to cry for her…and for me and for every survivor of sexual violence.

This is the president of the United States mocking a woman who told of her terror as she tried to get a drunken young man off her. Told of her fear of being accidentally killed as her attacker tried to smother her screams. A woman who told of how this traumatic assault affected her schoolwork and her relationships; of how she insisted on remodeling her house because she needed a second exit from her bedroom because of her fear of enclosed spaces, and the president of the United States mocks her, revictimizes her and encourages his idiotic supporters to do likewise. He watched as his deplorables laughed at her, mocked her and chanted “lock her up.” How low can one man go? How cruel can one man get?
From Dr. Blasey-Ford’s lawyer:
A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well? She is a remarkable profile in courage. He is a profile in cowardice. https://t.co/UJ0bGxV1EZ

Let’s send some love to Dr. Ford tonight.
Expand your flow of love and light outwards and imagine [Dr. Ford] needing love and light today. Drench [her] in your sunbeams in your mind, and see [her] relax and smile as [she] feels warm and loved.
