On the night President Trump announced from the White House his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, protestors showed up on Capitol Hill, and things got heated.

Fox News anchor Shannon Bream said she was forced to retreat from her planned live broadcast at the Supreme Court building Monday night because she “felt threatened” and didn’t think she would be safe.

President Donald Trump announced his nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Monday; if confirmed, Kavanaugh will fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Before Trump had even announced his pick, a crowd of protesters gathered at the Supreme Court building in Washington to express their opposition to whomever was selected.

Bream, who anchors “Fox News @ Night” at 11 p.m. EST on weeknights, reported live from the Supreme Court building for most of the day on Monday, up through the 9 p.m. hour when Trump announced Kavanaugh as his selection.

However, at 9:30 p.m., shortly after she had spoken with Sean Hannity about the Kavanaugh pick, she tweeted she felt “threatened” and later said she was returning to the studio. Fox News reported protesters were screaming at one another, and the majority of those present were left-leaning and holding signs like “Protect Roe” and “Don’t Criminalize Abortion.”

Back at the studio, Bream spoke with Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska):

“You and I were supposed to be doing our interview on the steps of the Court tonight,” Sasse said.

“It got a little too rowdy out there at the Court tonight,” Bream said.

Bream later said she didn’t think it would have been safe to broadcast from the Court steps and asked Sasse what that meant for the country’s political situation.

“It got so volatile at points that we ultimately didn’t feel like it would be safe to do an hour of live television out there. Where are we?” Bream asked.

Sasse said he would like to see people on the left try to bring about progressive policy goals through persuading voters, not through the judiciary.
