The impassioned fight over Kavanaugh's nomination has led to heightened security at the Capitol, with some senators using police escorts to shield them from protesters.
The vast majority of the arrests - 293 - took place on the Hart atrium floor.
The 37-year-old actress and 27-year-old model were among the dozens taken into custody at the demonstration held outside the Hart Senate Office building on Capitol Hill.
In another video posted to Twitter by @Theboldtype_z, Schumer made light of her pending arrest by sending a video to a fellow protester's daughter. A representative for Ratajkowski confirmed her arrest to BuzzFeed News. I think we're gonna get arrested. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power". " It is clear that these vocal supporters not only disrespect female existence but also believe that a woman is something to be objectified and ogled, and can not be respected if she does not "dress appropriately".Читайте также: Suge Knight's son claims Tupac is alive and living in Malaysia
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by three women, but he has vehemently and consistently denied all allegations. The protesters first gathered just after noon outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, where Kavanaugh now works, before moving to the Hart Senate Office. "That's what we're gonna do, we're gonna keep showing up, and no matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down". "So we had people who knew what it was like when we didn't have choice over our own bodies".
Some Republican senators have expressed unease over protesters who have confronted them at their Senate offices, restaurants, airports and even their homes.
Another video tweeted by @Theboldtype_ shows Schumer addressing the camera: "Hi Zola, I'm here with your mom". The outlet said that Schumer had pink bracelets and when asked what they were for, she joked, "For drinking". She said Schumer was among those arrested and was still being processed. We've reached out to her team for comment and will update if we hear back.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
