The president's comment followed the statements of Democratic senators who warned that Trump was, in the words of Sen.
The Analysis: From the unrelenting protests to the fiery rhetoric from Democrats, this was widely seen as the most contentious Supreme Court hearing in recent memory.
During a break in a confirmation hearing over his potential appointment earlier today, Kavanaugh was approached by a man named Fred Guttenberg, who reached out with his hand to shake that of Kavanaugh's.

Harris opened the protest as soon as Judiciary Committee Chairman Grassley brought the hearing to order in line with a plan drawn up by Democrats over the weekend.
