Trump Mocks Angry Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters In Latest Authoritarian Tweet





President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to mock protesters hours after the Senate voted to confirm his second Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

“The crowd in front of the U.S. Supreme Court is tiny, looks like about 200 people (& most are onlookers) – that wouldn’t even fill the first couple of rows of our Kansas Rally, or any of our Rallies for that matter!” Trump tweeted.

“The Fake News Media tries to make it look sooo big, & it’s not!” he added.



A large crowd of protesters surged onto the front steps of the Supreme Court on Saturday afternoon, chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, Kavanaugh has got to go,” reports CNN.

After police pushed them back from the doors, the demonstrators held signs and chanted, “No justice, no peace,” and “We believe Anita Hill,” a reference to the woman who accused Justice Clarence Thomas of misconduct.

Hours earlier, Trump doubled-down on his claim that anti-Kavanaugh protesters were “paid professionals.”

“Women for Kavanaugh, and many others who support this very good man, are gathering all over Capitol Hill in preparation for a 3-5 P.M. VOTE. It is a beautiful thing to see – and they are not paid professional protesters who are handed expensive signs. Big day for America!” Trump wrote.

On Friday, the president tweeted: “The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers.”
