She 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.”

The musician and actress went on to explain how science proved that a person who has experienced sexual assault or trauma goes through brain and sometimes body changes. She explained how the brain files the trauma in a box and closes it to help us survive the pain.

Lady Gaga described how the trauma can cause body changes, body pain, and elevation in anxiety. She also explained how some survivors filed the memory away and allowed themselves to forget it happened.

The singer explained:

“But what I believe that have seen is that 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. And when that box opened, she was brave enough to share it with the world to protect this country.”

One of Ford’s attorneys, Debra Katz, has revealed how she has been forced out of her home. Katz said it was going to be "quite some time" before she and her family could return home.

The attorney said:

"Her family has been through a lot. They are not living at home. It’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending. It’s deplorable."
