“The View” hosts had no sympathy for Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh after he was kicked out of the back door of a Washington, D.C., restaurant last week by left-wing protesters.
Whoopi Goldberg described how Brett Kavanaugh “had to leave the back door of a DC Steakhouse due to a peaceful demonstration at the front”.
Laughing after the table in a tweet From Chastain, husband of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, mocking Kavanaugh, Anna Navarro dismissed critics concerned about increased intimidation against conservative judges.
“For Brett Kavanaugh, let me take out my little violin,” she said.

Protesters sit outside Kavanaugh’s home since a draft opinion was leaked indicating that the Supreme Court would overturn the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade on May 2.
Navarro defended the protests, calling them a “holy American right” as long as there was no “violence or harassment”.
“I think it’s very important for judges, and people in elected office, to realize how angry a lot of America is, and that angry Americans, angered by this, maintain that anger and channel that anger into the ballot box,” she said.
Sunny Huston also called angry protesters “ridiculous” and “hypocritical” before downplaying the incident.

“Not only were they peacefully protesting, they were protesting outside the restaurant, and he’s never seen or heard of them before. It’s so ridiculous, you know, to get this big deal out of it,” she said.
The hosts did not mention the recent assassination attempt on Kavanaugh by a man angry over provisions on gun rights and abortion.
Last Friday, a group of left-wing activists in the capital promised rewards for the appointment of six conservative justices to the Supreme Court. In a tweet, the “ShutDownDC” group pledged to send money to local workers who told them to see judges in their establishments. Twitter allowed the tweet to stay put despite rules that prevent users from inciting harassment.
Some on the left encouraged harassment of Republican officials and conservative Supreme Court justices.
