Brett Kavanaugh’s daughters were escorted from his confirmation hearing on Tuesday as protestors drowned out senators with shouts against PresidentDonald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee filling the room.

One by one, the protestors took turns shouting and being removed by U.S. Capitol Police as Kavanaugh’s hearing got off to a contentious start.

A Republican senator described the hearing as ‘mob rule’ while another GOP senator complained about being shouted down, asking for the ‘loudmouth’ to be removed.

Kavanaugh’s children were escorted out of the hearing room, according to a reporter in the room.

Daughters Margaret and Liza had joined Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley at the hearing’s start with younger daughter Liza holding Kavanaugh’s hand as he entered the room.

Kavanaugh was supposed to introduce his family early on in the hearing but the interruptions from protestors and senators delayed that part of the proceedings.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin acknowledged the protestors in the room.

‘What we heard was the noise of democracy. This is what we hear when free people stand up to speak,’ he said. ‘It’s not mob rule.’

He went on to address the pressure on Kavanaugh and his family.

‘There are times it is uncomfortable. I’mm sure it was for your children. I hope you can explain it to them,’ he said.

And Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas apologized to Kavanaugh for his daughters having to experience the protests.

‘I’m sorry your daughters had to endure the political circus this morning,’ Cruz said. ‘That is Washington, alas, in 2018.’

The first part of Kavanaugh’s hearing devolved into a circus of shouts from protestors, complaints from Democratic senators, waving signs, removal of disrupters by U.S. Capitol Police, and a committee chairman banging his gavel calling for ‘regular order.’

‘Please vote no!’ one person in the hearing yelled to the Senate Judiciary Committee members.

Trump’s presidency was also invoked.

‘An illegitimate president cannot make an appointment to Supreme Court,’ another shouted according to reports from the room.

‘This should be an impeachment proceeding,’ another yelled.

‘If you vote for Brett Kavanaugh we will replace you,’ one threatened the senators.

Another protester said: ‘My daughter deserves the right to choose.’
