We all knew Ford was going to give a dramatic performance. No surprise there.
But two things about her behavior jumped out to me that suggest lying (nevermind that the substance . . . or maybe I sould say lack of substance . . . also shows lying.)
If you watch closely, you can see that the whimpering (which was largely responsible for the telling the truth claims that most made) gets turned on and off to the degree that it becomes apparent she was coached. She will whimper and then her tone becomes “normal” for a second, then she realizes it, and then switches back right away to whimpering.
As she tells her story, she calls Kavanaugh “Bret” at one point, then at another part of the story “Mister Kavanaugh”, and then in another part “Judge Kavanaugh”. This suggests she was coached by several different people.
Bottom line . . . I don’t believe one word she says.
I hear now that she’s backed out of this altogether . . . sounds like she’s afraid she’ll get caught perjuring herself.
