Some inconsistencies in Christine Blasey Ford’s Senate Judiciary testimony on Thursday have bubbled up on social media feeds as the first segment of questions and answers concluded Thursday, ahead of a 30-minute recess.

Here is a sampling of what some consider to be eyebrow-raising comments from the alleged sexual abuse victim that seem to defy common sense.

The backstory: Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who initially wished to remain anonymous, publicly accused Kavanaugh on September 16 of sexually assaulting her some 36 years ago at a high school party in suburban Maryland, when they were both teenagers.

Kavanaugh has vigorously denied all allegations of sexual misconduct or abuse leveled against him; he is also scheduled to speak Thursday afternoon before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Astute viewers noticed this in the questioning by Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was chosen by the Republicans to question Ford on their behalf:

1.) Press statements. Laura Ingraham, host of “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News and a co-founder of LifeZette, noted via Twitter, “She did not want to talk to the press but contacted The Washington Post three times in four days?”

2.) Fear of flying? Attorney Wendy Long noticed an inconsistency as well.

She tweeted, “Blasey Ford has a fear of flying from this alleged incident, but Rachel Mitchell just elicited that she’s not afraid to fly to Hawaii, Costa Rica, and French Polynesia for recreation …”

3.) Offer on the table? Townhall Editor Katie Pavlich commented, “Dr. Ford is now saying it wasn’t clear to her that Grassley was willing to send staff to California so she didn’t have to fly.”

She also said, “When asked to explain, her attorneys (Democrat operatives) cut in a cited privilege. Grassley made it extremely clear what the offer was.”

4.) “Can’t remember”? Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, also tweeted, “She says this could ‘absolutely not’ be a case of mistaken identity because of brain function.”

He added, “Worth noting she can’t remember date, location, or how she got there.”
