  • Astoria activist confronts Senator for supporting Supreme Court nominee

President Trump on Friday slammed protesters demonstrating against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - accusing them without evidence of being "paid professionals".

In the same tweet, the U.S. president also encouraged his followers to "look at all of the professionally made identical signs". Don't fall for it! Trump described the women as "rude elevator screamers" and said they have "professionally made identical signs". Paid for by (George) Soros and others. "These are not signs made in the basement from love!" the president tweeted.

The wafer-thin Republican majority in the Senate made his vote crucial, but Flake said after the hearing that he was leaning towards supporting Kavanaugh - prompting the protest.

Trump is referring to sexual assault victims who have confronted senators on Capitol Hill, including Sens.

The cloture vote passed Friday morning, meaning that debate in the Senate about Kavanaugh's appointment was closed, but the full vote is expected early Saturday evening.

Trump's tweet came after Capitol Police arrested 302 people for unlawfully demonstrating in the Senate office buildings on Thursday. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in an elevator on September 28 moments after he announced he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Orrin Hatch of Utah.

I suspect he won't change and will hope Klopp's side are exhausted from the midweek trip to Napoli . A year ago, Man City went to Chelsea and won 1-0 with a wonderful goal from Kevin de Bruyne.

Several women who identified themselves as sexual assault survivors approached Republican Sen. Shortly after Flake's confrontation with those women, he called for the FBI to reopen their background investigation to investigate the validity of the numerous sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Mr Hatch told them to "grow up".

Meanwhile, in yet another anti-Kavanaugh action, a small number of protesters gathered outside McConnell's house on Friday holding cans of beer and signing "What do you do with a drunken justice?"

Soros' philanthropic organization, Open Society Foundations, has contributed funding to the Center for Popular Democracy, but denied in a tweet directed at Trump that it had played a direct role in the protests.

After initially saying that Mr Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, should be heard and speaking cautiously, Mr Trump has grown increasingly frustrated.
