The scene outside the Supreme Court right now is unreal.

Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court Confirmation Vote Was One Of The Closest In US History buzzfeednews.com/article/chrisg… #SCOTUS

Only one Supreme Court nominee was confirmed on a closer vote. That vote was in 1881. buzzfeednews.com/article/chrisg…

Jo Macellaro, who came down on a bus from New York City early this morning to protest the Kavanaugh vote, told me that she’ll be leaving DC when they let her out of jail. She had not yet been arrested.

VIDEO: The scene outside the Supreme Court when Kavanaugh’s confirmation was announced.

Protesters overtook the plaza, street, and surrounding area outside of the Supreme Court in advance of the 50-48 confirmation vote of Justice Brett Kavanaugh on October 6, 2018.

Just saw this, but wanted to point out: This is a wildly obvious lie from the president, as the photos and video from earlier up in this thread shows.
