As the GOP-controlled Senate rushes to confirm to the Supreme Court beer-loving judge Brett Kavanaugh, who faces multiple credible allegations of sexual assault, thousands of people rallied in protest today outside the Supreme Court building. "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter", Schumer said.

In a video posted to Twitter, Schumer told viewers "I think we're going to get arrested".

But that didn't stop the fearless men and women who are part of the anti-Kavanaugh protests in Washington DC, even after police detained and arrested them. And no matter how this goes, they can not keep us down.


Schumer, who is related to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, previously posted details about the planned protest on her Instagram page, writing, "Let's march". Ratajkowski said on social media that she was arrested, too.

"GOP senators get police escorts as anti-Kavanaugh protesters swarm the Capitol", read one headline from the Washington Examiner. Many Republicans and President Donald Trump have stood by Kavanaugh during the confirmation process, which is expected to come to a final vote in the Senate this weekend.

From comments like "put on a bra", surprisingly coming from a woman, and "Sorry I was focused on something else, can you say that again?".


In case you're still audibly grumbling about some joke that offended you or some movie she made that didn't rise to your very specific set of expectations, the woman is literally trying to save democracy right now.

Shortly afterwards, Kavanaugh angrily and tearfully denied the charges before the judicial committee. "At this point, opposing Kavanaugh is not about a political party.it's about ensuring that women-people-of every political party are safe". Taking over the Hart Senate Office Building, members of the #MeToo movement denounced the conclusions of the FBI investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.
