Lady Gaga told Stephen Colbert Thursday night that the Kavanaugh hearing was “one of the most upsetting things I’ve ever witnessed.”
On Thursday night, pop star Lady Gaga made an appearance on Late Night with Stephen Colbert. And she opened up about her feelings about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Gaga told Colbert that watching Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary committee last week was one of the most upsetting things she’s ever witnessed.
“When it comes to the political stuff with you, I’m going to say, bring it on,” Gaga told Colbert after he asked if she’d like to talk about politics. “Because 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 was particularly offended by Trump’s remarks this week at a rally in Mississippi when he openly mocked Ford.
“I will tell you something, because I am a sexual assault survivor and 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!” Gaga said. “And I’ll tell you exactly why. I also know that this woman is smart because she’s a psychologist. She’s no dummy.”
She continued, “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.”
“When that box opened, she was brave enough to share it with the world to protect this country.”
