Sen. Bill Cassidy delivered a scathing reality-check in the Senate hallway when he was confronted by a protester using her children as political props.
The Louisiana Republican did not back down when he was met by Alethea Torrellas Shapiro and her children as he was walking in a Senate office building, giving the activist a reaction she probably did not expect.
“Sen. Cassidy, can you please apologize to my children for ruining their futures?” Shapiro asked Cassidy.
Taking out his earbuds, the senator addressed the children directly in his response.
“Hey, guess what. … I know your parents are using you as tools,” he said.
“No, we’re not using them as tools. We’re not using them as tools,” Shapiro interrupted.
“But in the future, if somebody makes an allegation against you, and there’s no proof for it, you will be OK. Thank you,” Cassidy said, and then just walked away.
At the end of the video, Shapiro could be heard yelling after the lawmaker.
“Shame on you for not believing women and for ruining my daughters’ lives,” she shouted.
Wow. I love the new GOP with backbone. The leftists don’t know how to handle someone that doesn’t just fold and give in to their stupidity. https://t.co/xGN4gDM7fx

The mother had been bringing her children to Capitol Hill to protest for days, according to her social media posts which have apparently been taken down. The Daily Caller caught Shapiro’s Facebook post in response to Justice Brett Kavanuagh’s confirmation, describing how she planned to use her kids to shame “these horrible atrocious men” in the Senate.
Other posts by Shapiro, also deleted, show she had been attempting to harass senators and Kavanaugh for days, always with her children in tow.

“Shapiro is an activist who calls extremist feminist activist Linda Sarsour her hero and regularly goes on profanity-laced tirades against GOP senators like Chuck Grassley,” The Daily Caller reported.
Cassidy’s no-nonsense response to her shameless attempt to use her children was applauded on Twitter.
I am so happy that men are finally finding the courage to stand up to radicalized feminism.
Well said @BillCassidy! These rabid feminists will stop at nothing (including using minor children) to get what they want.

Every one should watch this and retweet twice daily it for the rest of their lives.
This is one of the greatest things that has ever occurred in response to vile agitators using their kids as props. https://t.co/yB3Bi0XUdr

It’s one thing to communicate your opinion to a legislator in the hope of changing his/hers but what’s happening is stalking and harrassment seeking to coerce the legislators to do so.
Loitering. Disturbing the peace. Annoyances subject to common law arrest. Enforce the law.

The ONLY person who is “ruining” their children’s lives is the whiny deranged parent.

Hell yes! ? drop! Why do leftist use their children it’s disgusting. They also bring to to protest and practically use them as shields. There should be some kind of test before having children!

It was embarrassing to watch. Those poor kids! What kind of example is she giving to them. Good for Cassidy for telling the kids a little truth about law and Justice.

I think @BillCassidy has A LOT of catching up to do if he wants to ruin those kids futures. Their mother has a huge head start.
