Protesters outside the Supreme Court after the announcement of Brett Kavanaugh as the nominee to fill the seat to be vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy

July 10, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Congressional Democrats, liberal groups and Hollywood celebrities responded to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court with predictable anger, choreographed pushback and verbal hysterics.

Democrats announced an all-out blitz against Kavanaugh, with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-New York, vowing, according to the Washington Post, to fight Trump’s nomination of Kavanaugh “with everything I've got.”

Some on the left had arranged pre-planned protests no matter who Trump nominated.

ZeroHedge.com’s Tyler Durden covered some of the orchestrated liberal meltdown.

He wrote, “Following President Trump's Monday evening nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy's now-vacant seat, hundreds of protesters outside the Supreme Court broke open boxes of pre-printed “Stop Kavanaugh” signs – wasting a substantial amount of paper as the other Supreme Court nominees' pre-printed protest banners went unused.”

A pre-written press release from the Women’s March terming Trump’s SCOTUS pick an “extremist” was released before the nominee’s name had been added.

Some response to the Kavanaugh nomination heralded the ongoing hostility and aggression directed at conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters that has escalated since before Trump’s 2016 election upset of Hillary Clinton.

The scene outside the Supreme Court on Monday evening after the announcement was so threatening that Fox News anchor Shannon Bream pulled her planned 11 p.m. live broadcast from outside the Supreme Court steps back to the studio out of fear for her safety.

“Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field,” Bream tweeted. “The mood here tonight is very volatile. Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS.”
