Remember Christine Ford’s lawyers said that Monday was arbitrary and that’s why they wanted to do the hearing on Thursday?
Well apparently that wasn’t the whole truth. It’s now being revealed why Ford doesn’t want to do the hearing on Monday:
The GOP has been told that Ford does not want to fly from her California home to Washington, according to the Republican senator, which means she may need to drive across the country to make the hearing.
She wants to drive across country to do this hearing? C’mon. This has got to be a joke.
But apparently it’s not. I found this from a CNN reporter:
Kate DeVarney, a longtime friend of Christine Blasey Ford’s, is the second person to tell me Blasey Ford struggled to be in spaces without escape routes. Blasey Ford doesn’t like to fly, DeVarney said, bc an airplane is “the ultimate closed space where you cannot get away.”

I know people have weird fears and stuff, but I’ve never heard of this one.
Part of me wonders if this isn’t something to try and bolster her credibility that she’s been assaulted. You know, she needs an escape route because of what Kavanaugh did to her or something…
Or maybe she’s just weird. I dunno. I would think her issue with planes would be they might crash.
But the idea of waiting on her to get in a car in California and show up in DC for a hearing just sounds pretty unreasonable to me. After all, she’s the one who foisted this upon the country. She needs to get over her fears if she wants to testify. Otherwise just shut up and let the Kavanaugh show go on.
