Republican Sen. Susan Collins was left malicious and threatening voicemails ahead of her vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, according to exclusively obtained audio.

Collins, of Maine, gave an emotional floor speech in October ahead of her vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the high court, and soon after became a political target of Democrats.

In one of the voicemails, a caller called the senator "so f---ing naive" and a "f---ing f---ing feckless naive woman" for her decision.

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro reacted to the voicemails Tuesday on "The Story," saying that they were absurd.

"It speaks to a rising rage that Americans are feeling across the aisle," he said. "We're coming apart at the seams in a lot of ways, and we're filling that with anger and political tribalism."

Collins became one of the key swing votes to confirm Kavanaugh in the fall. In her floor speech, she criticized Democrats over how they handled the sexual misconduct allegations against the then-nominee.

Shapiro also said Tuesday that it was ironic people were calling Collins and slandering her by using sexist slurs.

"Obviously, people are more interested in basically venting their feelings than they are in actually effectuating change," he said.
