Activists dressed in Handmaid’s Tale outfits protested against the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett Thursday morning in front of the Supreme Court in Washington DC.
“We believe Trump having another confirmed Supreme Court Justice is just his way at a last-ditch power-grab, because he knows that he’s going to lose the election and he wants to bring it before the Supreme Court,” one activist told News2Share. “He wants the Supreme Court Justices to be indebted to him.”
The “Handmaids” briefly stepped up onto the Supreme Court steps, but Capitol Police cited United States Code to make them step down, classifying the group as a demonstration.
The group confirmed it is their intention to demonstrate daily against Barrett’s confirmation.
