Just hours before the vote over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump has doubled down on voicing his belief that the judge’s protesters are ‘paid professionals.’

Saturday at 9.08am, Trump tweeted what appeared to be a message directed at senators, stating that there are women who support Kavanaugh and that they’re not ‘paid professional protesters.’

‘Women for Kavanaugh, and many others who support this very good man, are gathering all over Capitol Hill in preparation for a 3-5 P.M. VOTE,’ Trump declared.

‘It is a beautiful thing to see – and they are not paid professional protesters who are handed expensive signs. Big day for America!’ he crowed.

This is the second time in as many days that Trump has spouted what is generally believed to be the conspiracy theory that those protesting his or the GOP’s ideas and decisions are mercenary, professional protesters.

Shortly before Friday’s Senate procedural vote to go forward with Kavanaugh’s vote, Trump tweeted about viral videos of female protesters who had approached senators in an effort to explain their point of view for why Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination should not go forward.

One woman’s elevator encounter with Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake is believed to have been what spurred him on to call for an FBI probe into allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford while they were both teenagers.
