The Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh, one week after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee to claim that she was sexually assaulted by the judge when they were both in high school.
“This tweet is for Dr. Ford,” DeGeneres tweeted. “You put yourself through so much and I want you to know it wasn’t in vain. You started a movement and we’ll see it through. If they won’t listen to our voices, then they’ll listen to our vote.”

What a terrible day in American history.

“What a terrible day in American history,” Griffin wrote on Twitter.
“Another gross day in the history of our country, but the midterms are coming,” Handler tweeted. “We are stronger than this bulls—t. We can fight and fight and we may not see the results right away, but we will see them. Our daughters will see them. Don’t give up. Fight harder.”

Alyssa Milano, who’d been present at the Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington, D.C. during Ford and Kavanaugh’s testimony, posted a long thread on Twitter claiming that the judge’s confirmation was “the culmination of a 30+ year plan” by right-wing and corporate special-interest groups “to capture the federal judiciary and use our courts to line their pockets and suppress the will of the people.”
My thoughts on this sad day for America (a thread):
Right-wing & corporate special interests selected this nominee and propped up his nomination with tens of millions of dollars in dark money.
We need to prioritize protecting our courts, which starts with retaking the Senate.

The Who’s the Boss alum also pointed out that Donald Trump has confirmed 69 judges during his time as president, adding, “People should be f—king terrified and outraged. I sure as hell am. We need to take back our power by taking back the Senate and the House in November. It is the only way out of this mess.”

Today has been one of the saddest days in our history thus far. Let us not sit in despair but allow this to motivate us all to vote in November.

Sadly I have retweeted this before… to think that MANY women have accused Trump of worse than Kavanaugh, and he just helped someone who is interested in giving him more immunity get seated on the Supreme Court #roguesgallery #whereisjustice??? … https://t.co/Cg5MfOTaG6
