The first day of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings was repeatedly disrupted by protesters, and day two got off to a similar start.

Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, is appearing for questioning before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill.

As committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) brought the hearing to order, he was interrupted by multiple protests. 

One woman shouted about gun violence and the "slaughter" of children and yelled "sham president, sham justice!"

A day earlier, chaos erupted in the hearing room as Democratic lawmakers called for delaying the proceedings and protesters repeatedly interrupted senators making opening remarks.

“Democratic senators interrupted the hearing 63 times before lunch. In the audience, 70 people were arrested yesterday who were following their lead,” Grassley said. “All probably very constitutionally prepared to do that, doing what the Constitution says, the right of freedom of speech. But we’re also able to conduct our hearing the way it should be conducted.”

Even as Grassley spoke, multiple protesters spoke out and were escorted from the room.

Ironically, protesters continued to shout as Kavanaugh discussed how he tried to be respectful in court.

"I’ve tried to be a very collegial judge, I’ve tried to be civil," he said.

When the disruptions continued, Kavanaugh asked Grassley, “Should I proceed?”

Grassley told Kavanaugh to continue speaking, despite the outbursts.

“Let these people have their free speech and interrupt the other 300 million people listening,” the Iowa Republican said.
