Liberal Celebrities Among Hundreds 'Arrested' During Kavanaugh Protests
Police politely ask 'activist' celebs if they 'want to be arrested' in Washington DC
As the allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Kavanaugh fall apart, and his innocence becomes clear for all to see, liberal celebrities are seizing their last opportunities for some extra publicity by jumping on the last shreds of hysteria before the final vote on the confirmation for the Supreme Court.
Over 300 anti-Kavanaugh protestors were arrested in Washington D.C. on Thursday, including celebrity "activists" Emily Ratajkowski and Amy Schumer, who appeared to take center stage by leading the rally.
Of course, we mustn't confuse these protestors with conservatives, as the mainstream media refers to those who represent the left as "activists," but the pro-Kavanaugh protestors, who voiced their opinions in equal measures - albeit with far less media coverage -, are "bad actors" or "fascists."
Model Ratajkowski, who's perhaps best known for uploading nude images of herself to Instagram, posed for photos holding a sign that read "respect female existence," while comedian Schumer heckled anti-Kavanaugh and feminist sentiment over a PA system.
Ratajkowski later proudly announced that she was "arrested" during the protests, yet footage that appeared on social media shows the pair being politely asked by a police officer if they would like to be arrested, to which Schumer responds "yes" before sheepishly looking into the camera that she realizes is filming her.
They are then ushered into the "arrested" section while those who chose not to be "arrested," are guided to the exit.
Great publicity though, right?
Ratajkowski announced on Twitter that she'd been detained during the protest the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, D.C.
"Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault," Ratajkowski, 27, captioned a photo of herself holding up a sign that reads, "Respect female existence or expect our resistance."
She added, "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power."

Comedian-actress Amy Schumer was also reportedly detained while protesting against Kavanaugh, according to MSNBC.
“No matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down,” Schumer, 37, said during the protest, Variety reports.
“We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter.”
According to Fox News, by Thursday afternoon, Capitol police had begun arresting hundreds of protesters inside the Hart Senate Office Building.
The protesters were chanting, “Kavanaugh has got to go.”
Arrests were made after protesters began sitting down in the building's atrium, refusing to cooperate with law enforcement.
During rallies and marches, protesters made it clear they were mad that Kavanaugh – who has denied allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to his teenage years – might be confirmed as early as this weekend.
“I am angry on behalf of women who have been told to sit down and shut up one time too many,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., seen by many observers as a possible 2020 presidential candidate, told the crowd.
