Lady Gaga believes that Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — and she believes President Donald Trump was vile for questioning Ford’s account of the alleged incident.
“What I have seen on the news with this debate of Kavanaugh versus Dr. Ford, it’s one of the most upsetting things I have ever witnessed,” Gaga, 32, told Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” Thursday.
“It’s heartbreaking, but I will tell you something because I am a sexual assault survivor. The truth is, you know, Trump the other day was speaking at a rally and he said, ‘She has no memory of how she got to the party, should we trust that she remembers the assault?’ And the answer is yes … This woman is smart because she’s a psychologist. She’s no dummy. If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma there is science and scientific proof — it’s biology — that people change. The brain changes. And literally what it does, is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box and it files it away and it shuts it so that we can survive the pain.”
She added, “It also does a lot of other things — it can cause body pain, it can cause baseline elevations in anxiety, it can cause complete avoidance of wanting to remember or think [about] what happened to you.”
“When this woman saw that Judge Kavanaugh was going to be possibly put in the highest position of power in the judicial system of this country, she was triggered and that box opened,” the “A Star Is Born” actress said. “And when that box opened, she was brave enough to share it with the world to protect this country.”
Ford, 51, alleged that a drunken Kavanaugh, 53, pinned her to a bed, attempted to disrobe her and prevented her from screaming for help during a high school party in 1982.
Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the accusations.
On Friday, the Senate advanced Kavanaugh’s nomination.
