WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s eldest son is appearing to mock a woman’s sexual assault allegations against his father’s nominee for the Supreme Court.

Christine Blasey Ford, a college professor, has come forth with an allegation that Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s nominee, assaulted her at a party more than 30 years ago.

Donald Trump Jr. posted an image on Instagram Monday with the caption ‘‘Judge Kavanaugh sexual assault letter found by Dems...’’

The photo attached shows a crumpled-up piece of notebook paper with a scribbled message: ‘‘Hi Cindy will you be my girlfriend, Love Bret.’’

The note has boxes to check for ‘‘yes’’ or ‘‘no’’ and seems to compares Kavanaugh’s accuser to a school yard crush.


Trump Jr. also ‘‘liked’’ a tweet from conservative actor James Woods that compared the accusation to a #MeToo ‘‘lynching.’’
