#WhyIDidntReport: Twitter Reacts to Donald Trump's Attack on Christine Ford

'I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!'

Now she's again tossed her two cents into the controversy surrounding the allegations leveled against Kavanaugh, whom Trump nominated back in the July.

According to Trump, the fact that Ford remained silent until now shows the incident probably never happened - even if this runs counter to what experts say is the typical reaction of sexual assault victims afraid or too embarrassed to report.

In a statement to The Post Kavanaugh denied the allegation and gave no further comment: "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation".

Perhaps the President will listen before he tweets next time.

We hope these women's fearless act of coming forward will put to rest questions of why some people take long to tell their #MeToo stories - and why so many others never do.

On Friday, Trump abandoned any restraint over Blasey Ford as he demanded that the Republican-controlled Senate get on with confirming Kavanaugh - and so tilt the highest USA judicial body further to the right before November's crucial mid-term elections. "Also, guys can't be sexually assaulted #WhyIDidntReport", tweeted Andy McNeese.

Claim of request for talks with Trump is 'farcical', Iran says
That doesn't necessarily mean Trump will be unwelcome at the United Nations , analysts say - just maneuvered around. Last year, Trump drew gasps by threatening from the United Nations podium to "totally destroy" North Korea.

In order to convey this message to Trump, survivors of sexual assault - both men and women - began sharing their own reasons for their silence, posting accounts with the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport on Twitter.

"Therefore there is not a singular way a victim is supposed to act afterward".

The actress later added the hashtag #WhyIDidn'tReport - which has been trending on Twitter as thousands of survivors share their stories.

"I was appalled by the president's tweet", Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) said while speaking at an event in Portland, the Portland Press Herald reports.

Meanwhile, some are not so sure they can trust Collins to vote against Kavanaugh, despite her latest remarks. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) sat on a letter she received from the accuser - and only produced it at the last minute, at a politically opportune time, as many Republicans have stated.

And for all the stories shared, there were no doubt countless others still left untold.

No one should ever be abused, period.
