So far, Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearings look more like a Saturday Night Live skit than they do SCOTUS proceedings.
The latest scene ensued when activist Linda Sarsour started screaming, and was eventually removed from the proceedings by officers.

Sarsour, as you may recall, was the head organizer of the Women’s March held back in January.
On What Basis
Sarsour, like many of the Democrats and leftists today, is protesting the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice.
The protests have nothing at all to do with Kavanaugh’s record or capabilities.
This is all about Trump getting to name his second justice to the Supreme Court and nothing more. And they simply can’t allow that to happen.
Thus far, the conduct of the leftists attending the proceedings has been despicable. The conduct of elected Democrats has not been much better.
The main point they are trying to argue is that Kavanaugh will overturn Roe v. Wade. This, as you probably know, was the decision that legalized abortion in the United States.
At no time has Kavanaugh even hinted he would overturn the decision.
In fact, Kavanaugh’s comments on the matter actually lean towards upholding precedent rather than overturning it. Nonetheless, Linda Sarsour, Hillary Clinton and other leftists are resorting to extreme characterizations in their attempt to obstruct the nomination process — simply because Donald Trump was the nominating president.
Hillary Clinton, who has been spewing out a litany of anti-Kavanaugh tweets, posted, “If Brett Kavanaugh becomes a Supreme Court justice, will he help gut or overturn Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in America? Yes, of course he will.”
The fact of the matter is this is just more obstructionist behavior by the lunatic left-wing, and nothing more. Kavanaugh’s hearings are still moving forward.
