Women dressing up like the characters from Hulu’s “Handmaid’s Tale” to protest everything Trump-related (especially Vice President Pence) is old news, but the handful who have shown up to silently protest Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings are the subject of a fawning puff-piece by CNN.

We don’t know how many handmaids are at the Kavanaugh hearings — of all the photos CNN ran, none showed more than a dozen gathered in one spot — but writer Kelly Murray certainly took the opportunity to wax poetic:

A group of protesters bearing a message as stark as their red and white costumes are opposing Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

They stood in silence Tuesday, the first day of the hearings, lining the walkways and atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building, their austere silhouettes evoking the dystopian persecution portrayed in the novel-turned-Emmy-award-winning Hulu drama “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Although he has vowed to uphold the Constitution and be impartial, many fear Kavanaugh, in this lifelong position, could tilt the American legal system to the right for an entire generation.

Barf.

Check back tomorrow for CNN’s interview with the man dressed as a penis to stop Kavanaugh.
