After a hard-fought battle and despite the many protests, the Senate finally confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

Some, like President Donald Trump, celebrated:

Others were less ecstatic. In fact, they seemed downright depressed. Here are some of the most intense reactions IJR found after the Kavanaugh vote.

1. Protesters’ “primal” screams.

The situation at the Capitol was already intense before Saturday’s vote. The confirmation seemed to drive anti-Kavanaugh protesters even madder. Sam Stein, the politics editor at The Daily Beast, reported that the protesters’ screams were “primal.”

Here’s some of what happened during the vote:

2. Actress Nancy Lee Grahn said she pulled over and “screamed gutturally.”

“Just pulled my car over & screamed gutturally for a good 2 min & then cried for 10 more,” she said before explaining that a woman comforted her:

3. Cartoons with Kavanaugh covering Lady Liberty’s mouth.

People apparently thought it was poignant to portray Kavanaugh as suffocating the Statue of Liberty the way that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claimed he did with her:

According to journalist Andrew Stroehlein, Kavanaugh would “make sure women have no legal control over their own bodies.”

4. Alyssa Milano: “People should be f**king terrified and outraged.”

Actress Alyssa Milano, who actually attended Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, had a lot to say:

5. D.C. bar patrons scream “f**k you a**hole.”

6-7. Comedians call confirmation day a “gross” and “terrible” day in American history.

8. Chants of “shame” outside the Capitol.

At least two men could be seen holding up middle fingers. One of them yelled, “F**k you!”

What do you think?

For once I agree with a Lefty at The Daily Beast! “Protesters screams were ‘primal'”, meaning pre-evolutionary, primitive, undeveloped. These protesters prove that we are regressing as a society, not progressing!

The only ones who consider Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler comedians are they themselves, their agents, and the Left.

I hope a log of lefties are terrified, scream until they lose their voices and never sleep a wink again.

This is Alyssa Miano’s statement regarding the Supreme Court “Kavanaugh moves it much, much further to the right. It has completely lost touch with the values of majority of Americans.” Since when is she the spokesperson of the majority of Americans? She is from that isolated bubble on the west coast called southern California that is so far left to fall into the ocean. There is a vast portion of the USA that she knows nothing about therefore can not speak for them. I dare say there is more majority supporting him & a conservative agenda than liberals. The conservatives… Read more »
