The political Left went wild following President Trump’s nomination of D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
Trump wants Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy who is leaving the U.S. highest court in July.
Following President Trump’s announcement at the White House protests ignited at NYC’s Trump Tower.
The New York Post reports:
Protesters decrying President Trump’s Supreme Court nomination blocked traffic outside of Trump Tower Monday night, leading to the arrest of seven people, law enforcement sources said.
Among those picked up was City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn), who is running for lieutenant governor.
Protests also erupted at the Supreme Court after the announcement.
Fox News reports:
Protests turned tense at the steps of the Supreme Court Monday night after President Trump chose Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Some protesters were screaming back and forth at each other amid a heavy law-enforcement presence.
Pro-choice activists held purple signs reading “Protect Roe” and “Don’t Criminalize Abortion.” Others chanted: “Kavanaugh has got to go!” Others shouted into bullhorns, “abortion is violence” and “uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.”
Fox News host Shannon Bream canceled her live show on the steps of the Supreme Court over security concerns.
After the big primetime reveal by the president, Bream had planned on doing a live show from outside the steps of the Supreme Court. But her plans were scuttled thanks to protests near her broadcast location.
Bream posted a Tweet about her experience:
