Sen. Susan Collins was the last hope for Democrats opposing the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh and her decision to vote in favor of the Supreme Court nominee had an atomic effect in Hollywood.

Friday’s Senate vote to end debate on Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court saw a 51-49 decision which advanced the process to a final vote expected Saturday.

Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin was the only Democrat who voted for cloture in Kavanaugh’s confirmation, simultaneously gaining the gratitude and the ire of many. Across the aisle, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski came under fire after she broke ranks with her party and voted ‘no’ on Friday.

Collins was seen as a swing vote and for those opposing Kavanaugh’s confirmation, there was hope she would still vote ‘no’ in the final up or down vote on Saturday. But the Maine Republican’s announcement Friday afternoon that she planned to support Kavanaugh’s nomination sent liberals into a meltdown.

And in Hollywood, the news went over about as well as expected.

Actress Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski, who were arrested at a protest in the Senate Office Building on Thursday, were noticeably quiet on Twitter. But plenty of their Hollywood cohorts sounded the alarm on Twitter.

Apparently seeing the writing on the wall, comedian Kathy Griffin flooded her Twitter account advertising of  “Impeach Brett” merchandise.

She offered a vulgar discount code and even encouraged fans to send some of the T-shirts, mugs and hats to Kavanaugh himself.

And while the rest of the Hollywood left was not peddling merchandise, they were anything but silent after Collins’ announcement.
