Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Sunday accused women who protested then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of using “mob-like tactics.”
On CBS’ Face the Nation, host John Dickerson called out McConnell for comparing women protesters to the “mob” in a remark last week.
“Who is the mob?” Dickerson asked.
“Well, the people that were attacking out members at their homes,” McConnell suggested. “It was really quite a display of aggressiveness, far beyond what I would consider peaceful protesting. They were trying to intimidate members of the Senate, not only in our home state, but also up here — actually in the Capitol. And in our homes here in Washington.”
McConnell went on to praise Senate Republicans “for not knuckling under to those kind of mob-like tactics.”
