See Lady Gaga’s powerful defense of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during interview with Stephen Colbert
As a sexual assault survivor, Lady Gaga told The Late Show host Stephen Colbert last night that the national debate surrounding Brett Kavanaugh, is ‘one of the most upsetting things I have ever witnessed.’
Gaga defended Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during an impassioned interview calling it “heartbreaking” that people have dismissed and ridiculed Dr. Ford, who alleges that Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a teenage gathering in the early 1980s.
“I am a sexual assault survivor,” Gaga said. “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’ … And I also know this woman is smart because she’s a psychologist – she’s no dummy. If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma, there’s science and scientific proof – it’s biology – that people change. The brain changes. What it does is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box and it files it away and shuts it so that we can survive the pain.”
