Amy Schumer detained while protesting Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, DC

Amy Schumer detained while protesting Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, DC”

Outside the Hart Senate Office Building, where Senators are still "deciding" on their votes, the protesters were evacuated.

In a video posted on Twitter Thursday, an officer asked Schumer if she wanted to be arrested, implying that she would be detained if she did not leave the premises. One Twitter user posted a video shortly before reports emerged of Schumer being detained of the actress telling the camera, "I think we're going to get arrested".

Amy Schumer was among dozens of protesters detained by police on Capitol Hill while protesting the possible appointment of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"She loves you very much". "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter".

Fellow actress Emily Ratajkowski, who was in Schumer's film "I Feel Pretty" and was photographed with the comedian at the rally, tweeted that she was arrested. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power".

"Kavanaugh's confirmation as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States is a message to women in this country that they do not matter", she continued. Show up! We will keep fighting.

Ratajkowski concluded: 'I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men'.

Earlier this week Donald Trump was criticised for imitating Dr Ford, who could not provide precise information about every aspect of the day of the assault, at a rally in Mississippi. "Proud to be here with so many incredibly fearless survivors and proud people who care about this nation in such an important time", Heard wrote on her Instagram. The protesters were chanting, "Kavanaugh has got to go".

"I am angry on behalf of women who have been told to sit down and shut up one time too many", Sen.
