Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a frequent White House foe, lashed out at Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday after the president’s son appeared to mock the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

President Trump has been increasingly vocal in his defense of Kavanaugh since a confidential letter that detailed assault allegations became public, but he has largely stayed away from publicly challenging the accuser’s credibility — unlike his eldest son.

Trump Jr. posted a meme to his Instagram account over the weekend depicting a grade school love letter, written in crayon with words misspelled, that asked “will you be my girlfreind” and was signed “love, Bret.” The picture was stamped with the words “Judge Kavanaughs sexual assault letter found by Dems.”

On Twitter on Wednesday, Flake called Trump Jr.’s comments “sickening.”

“No one should make light of this situation,” wrote Flake, who is retiringfrom the Senate at the end of his term. He attached an image of the meme.
