BRETT KAVANAUGH/ME TOO/PROTESTS/SEX ABUSE/SUPREME COURT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WOMEN: “President Donald Trump on Friday [10-5-18] attempted to undermine the legitimacy and motivation of thousands of demonstrators on Capitol Hill protesting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying demonstrations are funded by George Soros, a billionaire financier and liberal donor who is the frequent topic of unsubstantiated right-wing conspiracy theories…Demonstrators have descended upon the Hill to protest Kavanaugh’s nomination and last month, protestors repeatedly interrupted Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. On Thursday [10-4-18] alone, nearly 300 protesters were arrested in the Hart Senate building. Kavanaugh’s nomination was upended after allegations of sexual assault and misconduct emerged in recent weeks. The revelations and subsequent Senate proceedings have stirred a furious political debate and whipped up protests and recriminations and a clash between the mostly male power structure of the Republican Party and the emerging influence of the #MeToo movement.”
