Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren tore into the hundreds of women protesting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, saying the right to protest has been “cheapened by these man-hating feminists.”

More than 300 demonstrators — predominately women — were taken into custody by police on Capitol Hill on Thursday while protesting against Kavanaugh following sexual misconduct allegations. 

Lahren took to Twitter early Friday morning to call the protests “so embarrassing.”

“I’ve said ‘God bless them’ for coming forward, but they need to feel that anger toward their individual perpetrators, not toward senators who are unconnected completely from the awful things that have happened to them in the past,” Conway said.

Lahren’s colleague at the network, “Fox and Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt, said on Friday that there was “so much hypocrisy” surrounding the female anti-Kavanaugh protesters.

“You have women who are getting in their faces, in these senators’ faces and saying ‘how dare you talk to a woman that way,’” Earhardt said.

“They’re using gender to get their points across, but they’re the ones who are attacking men in the elevator, and yelling at them and then they’re saying ‘how dare you talk to a woman that way,’” Earhardt continued. “It’s pretty dangerous.”

Kavanaugh’s nomination has been embroiled in controversy ever since Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor, publicly accused him of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school.

Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month and detailed how Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to remove her clothing at a house party in the 1980s.

Two other women came forward after Ford to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

The judge has vehemently denied all of the allegations against him.
