    Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), the lone Democrat who will vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was confronted by angry protesters outside his office after announcing his position. Manchin’s answers to reporters justifying his position was drowned out by a group of women protesters chanting at him “Look at us!” and “shame!” Manchin looked uncomfortable as he tried to hear reporters questions over the angry crowd. Running for re-election in a state President Trump won by double digits, Manchin is considered a vulnerable Democrat. Trump has endorsed state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) and has campaigned for him, despite Manchin...

    Discourse: The perpetually angry and violent Left is getting out of hand and it’s beginning to show now, even in the nation’s capital. Several GOP members of the Senate had to have police escorts on Tuesday just so they could get past a horde of demonstrators who had assembled in the basement of the Russell Building near the Senate subway terminus. No doubt a large portion of them were being paid to protest by groups funded by that domestic terrorist, George Soros, but the fact that our elected leaders — well, Republicans anyway — must now be escorted by armed...

At the risk of being overly cynic, how about a narrative thread built about a woman who now wants to attend anti-Donald Trump rallies but who as a child protested outside abortion clinics in Southern California?
