'The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad.

"Women for Kavanaugh, and many others who support this very good man, are gathering all over Capital Hill", Trump said Saturday on Twitter, misspelling the name of the area known as Capitol Hill.

President Trump accused billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros of planting two women in an elevator with Republican Sen.

"Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs". These are not signs made in the basement from love!

It was a freaky claim, but a familiar one for many on the right, who have accused Soros of bankrolling other prominent protests. Don't fall for it!' Trump tweeted Friday at 6.08am.

The two women, who said they are sexual assault survivors, stopped Flake on his way to Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination hearing on September 28.

Trump's comments echoed criticism of the protesters leveled earlier Friday by senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, who said on Fox News that victims of sexual abuse should focus their efforts on confronting their attackers, rather than Republican lawmakers.

Hundreds more demonstrated outside the Supreme Court and inside the Senate Hart Office Building on Thursday.

Among the women who have shared their stories of surviving sexual assault were two who accosted Sen. Susan Collins - later reached an agreement to conduct the new Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the sex-assault claims against Kavanaugh in exchange for his vote to help advance the judge through the Judiciary Committee. Moments later, Flake, much to the delight of his Democrat colleagues, called for a week's delay in Kavanaugh's vote to allow the FBI to investigate the allegations against him. Fellow Judiciary Committee member Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah waved off female demonstrators Thursday and told them to "grow up".
