CNN Personality Arrested Protesting Kavanaugh

Capitol Police arrested 59 people protesting Brett Kavanaugh near the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday afternoon. Those in zip-tie handcuffs include a familiar CNN talking head.

Video shot by Roll Call clearly shows at around the 2:34 mark cops frisking a detained Sally Kohn, a CNN commentator and Huffington Post contributor, at the demonstration. The police arrested Kohn after she and others blocked traffic by sitting on First Street for over an hour, according to

Kohn appeared in good spirits and not resisting after the police detained her.

Other CNN contributors expressed their opposition to Kavanaugh in ways more familiar to viewers of the network. Jeffrey Toobin contrasted the “highly believable” Christine Blasey Ford with “belligerent, angry, enraged” Brett Kavanaugh. Symone Sanders said that the nominee “looked unhinged.”

Fox News, where Kohn once provided commentary, fired an on-air contributor for referring to Kavanaugh’s accusers as “lying skanks.” It remains to be seen whether CNN retains Kohn or not, and if her activism even violates the network’s standards.

The media personality tweeted of the on-street sit-in, “Sometimes to stand up for what’s right, you gotta sit down.”
