Amy Schumer arrested during DC protest of Kavanaugh’s nomination

A viral Twitter video shows police appearing to herd a large group of protesters, including Schumer, inside the area.

"Hi Zola, I'm here with your mom".

Two famous faces - Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski - were among the protesters who scuffled with police as hundreds swarmed the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on Thursday to protest controversial Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

She added, "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power".

Both women were taken inside the Senate office building on Capitol Hill, where a police officer reportedly asked Amy if she wanted to be arrested.

Amy Schumer talks the talk and walks the walk when it comes to denouncing Brett Kavanaugh - 'cause she just got arrested in D.C. with a bunch of other people protesting the imminent vote on his confirmation.

Schumer and Ratajkowski were arrested.

Before the arrest, the Trainwreck actress reportedly told fellow protestors, "We're going to keep showing up and no matter how this goes, they can not keep us down. She loves you very much", the comedian said.

The Cubs are phenomenal in the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field this year, going 51-31, a 62.2 winning percentage. Tyler Anderson was wonderful on the mound, pitching 7.2 innings of shutout baseball while giving up only four hits.

Protesters initially planned to hold their rally on the East Front of the Capitol, but USCP cordoned off the area Thursday morning.

"We need to stand up". "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter". Show up for your sister and daughters and mothers. We're going to keep showing up.

So the thousands of demonstrators streamed into the Hart building, chanting and singing against Kavanaugh, whom multiple women have accused of sexual assault. Ratajkowski agreed to be in the music video; victims of sexual assault did not agree to be sexually assaulted - no matter what they were wearing or how many alcoholic beverages they may have had.
