Astoria activist confronts Senator for supporting Supreme Court nominee

US President Donald Trump has hit out at female protesters who have confronted senators over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, labelling them "paid professionals only looking to make senators look bad". Don't fall for it! "These are not signs made in the basement from love!" Paid for by (George) Soros and others.

Hitting back, an American liberal advocacy group Right Wing Watch said: "On the surface, Trump's tweeting of a Soros conspiracy theory acts to explain-away opposition to Kavanaugh".

The "rude elevator screamers" comment most likely refers to the women who US Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) as the Senate Judiciary Committee debated the fate of the nomination.

The Senate will hold a procedural vote on Friday-the one-year anniversary of The New Yorker story on film producer Harvey Weinstein that began the #MeToo movement-on whether to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to a final up-or-down vote expected to take place on Saturday.

More than 300 protesters, including comedian Amy Schumer, were arrested on Wednesday opposing Kavanaugh, who has been accused by Dr Christine Blasey Ford of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers.

To his credit, he didn't exactly sulk, but he had a look on his face which told you everything you needed to know. City forward Jesus had wanted to take responsibility but manager Pep Guardiola instructed Mahrez to step up.

With their party holding a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, all eyes were focused on three Republican senators who have not yet declared what they will do in the final vote - Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Orrin Hatch of Utah near capitol elevators to ask why he was backing Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh had previously run into controversy during his confirmation hearings for telling apparent untruths under oath about his drinking habits and whether he received material stolen from Democratic senators during his tenure as White House counsel. "Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me, that you will let people like that go into the highest court of the land and tell everyone what they can do to their bodies".

It was this elevator protest which saw him waver again, prompting the president to give the Federal Bureau of Investigation a week to investigate the claims against Kavanaugh.

The president's description of the protesters as "elevator screamers" seemed to be a reference to two women who confronted Republican Sen.
