Women came out in the most organized and energetic protests yet to show their displeasure at Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court (SCOTUS). All across the country, women and many men have been demanding that the senators vote “no” on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Then, they did something truly spectacular.
A group called UltraViolet has placed the president’s infamous Access Hollywood tape on a continuous loop right in front of the Capitol. Two years ago, Trump bragged on tape about grabbing women without their permission — and it got worse.
‘Trump’s Access Hollywood tape on loop all day in front of the Capitol, two years after the release. We’re here to remind senators that Trump is a self-professed sexual abuser trying to put another sexual abuser on the highest court in our country. #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors‘
The old Republican white men in the Senate who wanted their conservative justice lit a passionate fire across the country. They have done everything they could to grease the confirmation process and hamper the FBI investigation. Women were not happy.

The idea that Donald Trump could mock the brave woman who came forward as a sign of her patriotic, civic duty, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was repugnant. Dr. Ford accused Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her. The Republicans said they believed her. However, if they really believed her, they would have pulled Kavanaugh.
The ACLU tweeted:
‘✊ This is what democracy looks like. Together we are strong enough to #StopKavanaugh’
