Trump: Kavanaugh Hearing Protests Are 'Embarrassing' for US

The protestors at Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are “embarrassing for the country,” President Donald Trump told The Daily Caller on Tuesday night.


More than 30 women were arrested for protesting at the hearing over concerns about Kavanaugh’s stances on issues from LGBT rights to abortion, among other things. In total, 70 people who disrupted the hearing were arrested by Capitol Hill police, according to Politico.


“I’m amazed that people allow the interruptions to continue,” Trump said of the multiple protestors. “There [are] some people that just keep screaming.


“In the old days, we used to throw them out. Today, I guess they just keep screaming.”


Trump praised Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, for demanding order after he was interrupted by protestors.


“Mr. Chairman, I think we ought to have this loudmouth removed,” Hatch said. “I mean we shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of stuff. I hope she’s not a law student.”


Trump said it was “embarrassing for the country to allow protestors.”


“To allow somebody to stand up and scream from the top of their lungs — and nobody does anything about it — is, frankly . . . I think it is an embarrassment.”
