Oct 4, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Comedian Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski were arrested today, according to media reports, as dozens of demonstrators were detained during protests over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill.

Schumer can be seen in a video posted on Twitter being asked by police whether she wants to be arrested, and answering “Yes.”

It was unclear whether Schumer was in fact arrested or merely detained, but a number of media outlets report that she was arrested.

USA Today reports that Schumer was holding a “We believe Anita Hill” sign and can be seen wearing a green top reading “This today, then #ERA.”

Ratajkowski put up a tweet about her own incident, which you can see below. She wrote: “Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power.”

“Earlier in the day, Schumer and Ratajkowski attended the #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, with the likes of Lena Dunham and Whoopi Goldberg,” USA Today reports. “At the rally, Schumer fired up demonstrators, saying, ‘Let’s stay together, let’s fight, let’s keep showing up.’ Ratajkowski flanked Schumer on the stage during her speech.”

  1. Guilty until proven innocent. As the facts come out about the three accusers stories, it is necessary to change the attack to just political. Kavanaugh did nothing but be appointed by Trump. For that his family has been permanently destroyed. If he is not appointed what will the Democrats do to the next nominee? These accusations can’t be used against everyone nominated or the Democrats will have no credibility left.

  2. The left has gone too far with this. A man and his family have been totally destroyed because of claims that not one person can corroborate from 35 years ago. And if they actually wanted in investigation, it would’ve been done quietly protecting the victim from the public. To use her as a political pawn is disgusting. Last Thursday’s hearing was an absolute embarrassment for this country, how have we gotten here? People are being run out of restaurants because of their political views, the anger and constant protests from the left are becoming a threat to freedom of thought in this beautiful country. What happened to honest debates and peaceful disagreements. We’re heading down the wrong and it’s being led by fanaticals on the left who promote freedom of the press and equality only if you agree with them.

  3. Wish I lived in DC so I could make some easy money protesting. Wouldn’t have to believe in anything I was protesting but, from what I hear, it’s easy money. If conservatives started paying as much as liberals, maybe there could be a bidding war for the services of professional protestors. For now, the professional protestors have to accept what they are offered as the conservatives aren’t paying.

  4. The Left has lost their minds over Trump and are willing to destroy this country get their way. As a woman, I am also angry because it hurts real victims. Kavanaugh is being burned at the stake for the crimes of every low life man out there. it is no longer about him, he is being used to represent everything what they think is wrong with the world. I have always voted independent of party. These protests have me ready to vote a straight republican ticket.
