Amy Schumer Detained, Possibly Arrested at Brett Kavanaugh Protest in DC

Amy Schumer was one of several protesters detained in Washington, DC, today.

The protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place on Thursday (October 4) in Washington, DC. Amy, who told her social media followers that she would be protesting, was photographed as one of the several protesters who were held at the Hart Senate Office Building by police.

There’s also a video of Amy being taken away here. Another fan got a special message from Amy on a video, saying, “I think [I'm] gonna get arrested.”

“We need to stand up. I want to encourage anyone and everyone to get active if it’s with a post or a march or a donation. This is not a drill. Show up in DC tomorrow and Friday. Show up for your sister and daughters and mothers. Show up! We will keep fighting. We see you Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and everyone else who told the truth no matter what happens we thank you we love you we are you,” Amy posted on Instagram on Wednesday (October 3).

If you do not know, Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. A hearing took place last week, and he is currently Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee.

    Donald Trump of course ordered all the people protesting rapist Brett Kavanaugh to be arrested. The U.S stopped being a democracy the day they allowed his Deplorables to run the country.

Get a clue- I don’t know the year, time, place, people, how I get there, how I got home,- zero -ZERO witnesses-it is a complete joke-maybe we can call you a “rapist” – Frankly, now with her ex boyfriends letter; I don’t believe a word of her testimony-but boy her “go flip me fund” is over $900K, what a payoff to destroy a mans life and family. Those paid activists are disciples of George Soros- it is pathetic!!

    A total charade. Dr. Ford presented NO PROOF. She is a phD in psychology who is well-trained in manipulation and psychological warfare. She put on an act and the sheep fell for it.

  • Chingpei

    She was arrested for NOT Being Funny and being perpetually UGLY !!!!

  • Saltydog

    It’s not ridiculous to protest the nomination of a partisan, anti choice supreme court candidate who likely has alcohol issues and is accused of multiple sexual affairs

  • JD Thomas

    no more sexual predators on the supreme court.

  • mahbelle

    Your comment is a bunch of BS. All of it.

  • Saltydog

    Explain how.

  • Saltydog

    Is Kavanaugh not anti choice? Did he not make partisan statements and claims? Did he not talk about his love of beer way more than necessary? Has he not been accused of sexual assault?

  • mahbelle

    being accused of something by a pathetic woman who can’t remember 3 months ago, let alone 36 years, and a couple of other lunatics does NOT make one guilty. He’s been investigated by the FBI 6 times plus this most recent nonsense. He has had an unimpeachable reputation for over 3 decades. sit down and shut up with your false accusations and unproven allegations.

  • Saltydog

    I said accused, not guilty and it was by multiple women. And there is no defense of his partisan views and statements and lying under oath. Not to mention the drinking. There a thousands of conservative judges, it shouldn’t be too hard to find someone else.

  • mahbelle

    oh please, the other women are utterly ridiculous in their accusations. i think if Kavanaugh was a drunk, everyone would have known about it. so he drank in college? lots of students drink too much in college. you just believe what you hear on CNN and don’t think for yourself.

  • Saltydog

    You can just look at his face and tell he’s a drinker, the dude has gin blossoms in every picture. I don’t watch any TV news I actually read articles online from a variety of sources not just Fox News.

    You’re as good at dodging questions as Jeff.

  • mahbelle

    I will never support the attempted destruction of a person because of unsubstantiated allegations. You assumption that he is a “drinker” is based on your hatred of the man. For 36 years he has an unblemished reputation and has been investigated 7 times by the FBI. So he likes beer. So do many many Americans. Everyone is partisan which is why there were 3 liberal justices and 3 conservative justices. I’m not dodging anything but I refuse to entertain baseless allegations.

  • Saltydog

    A supreme court justice should be impartial it is literally one of the most important aspects of the job. A judge can be liberal or conservative but they can’t come out on favor of one political party. Kavanaugh’s ranting about democrats alone should be a reason not to approve his nomination. He will still be a federal judge in one of the highest courts, just not THEE highest court. Saying somebody doesn’t deserve a promotion is not destroying their life, grow up.
