Their concerns were promptly ignored by the Senate, which is planning to hold a confirmation vote for Kavanaugh as soon as tomorrow. But in response to the revelation that several of the professional activists, including the two young women who accosted Senator Jeff Flake last week, were exposed as "employees" of a non-profit organization funded by George Soros, President Trump has weighed in on Twitter, blasting the "elevator screamers" in a tweet that was essentially red meat for his base.
Trump slammed the "very rude elevator screamers", accusing them of being "paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad" before warning the American people "Don't fall for it!" As evidence of the coordination behind the supposedly grass roots protest, Trump pointed to the signs carried by demonstrators and their suspiciously polished appearance "Look at the professionally made identical signs," Trump said. "Paid for by Soros and others.'
"They are not signs that were made in a basement with love!" the president said, concluding the tweet with the hashtag '#Troublemakers'.
