Fox News’ Todd Starnes Calls Anti-Kavanaugh Protestors ‘Animals’ That ‘Should Be Tasered’


Fox News radio host Todd Starnes tweeted furiously about the Senate vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice on Saturday, raging against protestors who interrupted the vote.

Protestors that made it into the Senate gallery screamed at lawmakers and chanted “Shame!” as Vice President Mike Pence tried to maintain order. The vote was eventually held, and Kavanaugh was confirmed.

“Those screaming animals in the Senate gallery should be tasered, handcuffed and dragged out of the building,” Starnes wrote in one tweet.

“End this anarchy!” he wrote in another.

Following the vote, Starnes called on voters to “punish the Democrats.”
