Fox News was forced to cancel a live show on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to cover President Trump’s newest SCOTUS nominee because of unhinged protesters who made everyone feel unsafe.
“Last year there were protesters and there was opposition to Justice Gorsuch. Tonight we saw something different,” FNC host Shannon Bream said inside a studio. “We did have a plan to have our show out there live. It got so volatile at points that we ultimately didn’t feel like it would be safe to do an hour of live television. Where are we?”
On July 9, President Trump nominated D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who’s retiring. Among those protesting in D.C. were Democratic Senators Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, and Kirsten Gillibrand.
Liberals were planning to protest whomever the nominee was, even before they knew who it was, simply to obstruct anything President Trump does.
Bream tweeted that she felt scared for her safety. “Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field,” she tweeted. “The mood here tonight is very volatile.”
She added: “Literally had to bail on our live show from SCOTUS. Moving the show back to the safety of the studio.”

In addition to protesting on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court, Trump-hating leftists protested outside Trump Tower in New York, even though the president wasn’t even there.
Among those arrested during the Trump Tower protest was New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn).
Naturally, Williams tweeted photos of himself being arrested in a thirsty bid for retweets and to bolster his liberal street cred (which these days mandates being arrested).

Even anti-Trumpers John McCain, Mitt Romney, and George W. Bush applauded President Trump’s stellar SCOTUS nominee.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials & a strong record of upholding the Constitution. He is widely respected as a fair, independent & mainstream judge. I look forward to the Senate moving forward with a fair & thorough confirmation process. https://t.co/5Y5oWo36RB

Esteemed by his colleagues, faithful to the Constitution, a record of thoughtful decisions, and already confirmed for the DC Circuit; Brett Kavanaugh has the right stuff.

Conservatives predicted liberals’ unhinged reaction hours before it happened.

1. Trump announces SCOTUS nominee
2. Media/Democrats run vicious smear campaign, includes lies.
3. Conservatives will call out the lies.
4. @BrianStelter will claim "Republicans pounce" on the lies.
5. The Left will become even more dangerous.
6. Nominee will get confirmed.

Meanwhile Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had the Best. Day. Ever, easily shrugging off the mob bullying he endured just days earlier.
