It took mere minutes for the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to devolve into chaos Tuesday. Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee joined with protesters to interrupt Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the committee chairman, during his opening statement, and the first hour of the hearing was quickly swallowed up by crosstalk.

The "mob rule" vibe, as Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) called it at one point, led to some noteworthy whispered quips, as lawmakers kept reacting off-camera to the proceedings with their microphones still turned on. In the midst of some lively protests, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) can be overheard encouraging Grassley to "demand order," while at one point Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) noted reporting from NBC News' Kasie Hunt that the Democrats' disruption had been coordinated via a phone call Monday. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) was not impressed with Tillis' point, muttering, "This is outrageous."

After Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said the hearing should be held according to the law, Cornyn contended that Democrats would be "held in contempt of court" for their behavior. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) was quick to react:

Protesters continued to disrupt the proceedings, prompting a fed-up Hatch to utter, "Get her thrown out of here, my God."

President Trump told supporters in Montana on Thursday night that his fate is in their hands.

If he is ever impeached, "it's your fault 'cause you didn't go out to vote — that's the only way it could happen," he said. "I'll be the only president in history, they'll say, 'What a job he's done! By the way, we're impeaching him.'" Trump was in Billings to campaign for Matt Rosendale, the state auditor running for Senate, but most of the time, he focused on himself and Democrats, including those who are "looking like fools" during Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

He compared his speeches to the Gettysburg Address, claiming that in Abraham Lincoln's day, the 16th president was "ridiculed" and "excoriated" by the "fake news — there was fake news before." Trump also said he was just told North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was saying "terrific things about me," and they both have "respect" for each other. When it comes to the media, "you can't win, but we're winning," he declared. "I'm president, your president, we're winning." People may say he's mentally unfit, Trump told the crowd, but could someone not of sound mind be able to speak at rallies for 90 minutes, often "without any notes?" he asked, later admitting, "I think I'm pretty competent."

The confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have been most notable for what Kavanaugh has refused to say: What he believes to be the correct law on abortion rights, gay rights, same-sex marriage, presidential executive authority, immigration, and a host of other timely subjects. "One of the major concerns with Brett Kavanaugh is that Trump might have nominated him specifically because Kavanaugh believes sitting presidents shouldn't be subpoenaed or indicted," Trevor Noah said on Thursday's Daily Show. "And some people are worried that Kavanaugh might even have made a deal with Trump's [former] personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, basically saying we'll put you on the court if you promise to protect the president from Robert Mueller."

"Now, we don't know if Kavanaugh actually met with Trump's lawyer, but when California Sen. Kamala Harris asked him about it yesterday, Kavanaugh did himself no favors," Noah said, playing part of their intense and kind of bizarre back-and-forth. "Wow, Kavanaugh did not look good in that exchange. It's like if they asked a suspect at a murder trial, 'Where were you on the night of the 13th?' and he was like, 'Uhhh, where shouldn't I have been? Wherever the murder happened, that's where I was.'" Noah was not persuaded by Kavanaugh hiding behind "precedent" to avoid answering questions on abortion rights, but he was impressed with Harris' pointed question to him on that subject.

In Thursday's hearings, Kavanaugh acknowledged that he was friends with one lawyer at Kasowitz Benson Torres, Ed McNally, but insisted he'd had no "inappropriate conversations about that investigation with anyone." A spokesman for the law firm said Thursday that "there have been no discussions regarding Robert Mueller's investigation between Judge Kavanaugh and anyone at our firm."

President Trump and White House aides have come up with a list of roughly 12 people suspected of being behind the anonymous op-ed published Wednesday by The New York Times, an outside adviser told the Times on Thursday.

The op-ed, written by a senior administration official, called Trump's leadership style "impetuous, adversarial, petty, and ineffective," and the author said there is a "quiet resistance" underway by staffers trying to protect the country from Trump's "half-baked, ill-informed, and occasionally reckless decisions." White House officials spent Thursday calling different departments to ask Cabinet secretaries if they were responsible for the op-ed, the Times reports, and they all said no.

Several West Wing officials are especially suspicious of Vice President Mike Pence and his staff, and they were not persuaded by his denial, White House officials told the Times. There's also been talk of having senior officials sign affidavits swearing they did not write the op-ed. Read more about the panicked response at The New York Times. Catherine Garcia

She's more than just a girl — in fact, filmmaker Michael Moore has a theory that Gwen Stefani may be the person most responsible for getting President Trump into the White House.

Stefani wears a lot of hats — she's a solo pop star, No Doubt's frontwoman, a fashion designer, and a judge on The Voice. Her gig on the singing competition is why Moore believes Stefani launched the Trump presidency, he told The Hollywood Reporter. As Moore sees it, Trump likely learned NBC paid Stefani more to be a judge on The Voice than he received hosting The Apprentice, so he announced from Trump Tower he was running for president to show the network how famous he was and how much attention he could receive.

"He'd been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn't really want to be president," Moore said. "There's no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn't want to live in a black city. He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails." Trump ended up getting dropped by NBC after saying Mexico was sending rapists to the United States, but Moore said by that time, he was too attached to the crowds coming to his rallies and the nonstop media coverage, and turned his joke candidacy into a real one.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh raised eyebrows on Thursday when he referred to contraception as "abortion-inducing drugs."

It was the third day of his Supreme Court confirmation hearing, and Kavanaugh was responding to a question asked by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) about the 2015 Priests for Life v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services case he heard while on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Priests for Life objected to the Affordable Care Act requirement that all health insurance plans cover contraception for employees, asserting that Plan B and IUDs are not birth control, but instead cause abortions.

Hoodie Chic Long Sleeve Crane Embroidered Leisure Kavanaugh, who dissented from the majority that ruled in favor of the Obama administration, told Cruz it "quite clearly" seemed the contraception mandate was a "substantial burden on their religious exercise." Had Priests for Life filled out a form asking the government to fund the contraceptives, Kavanaugh added, this workaround would still have made them "complicit in the abortion-inducing drugs that they were, as a religious matter, objected to."

Priests for Life used the term "abortion-inducing drugs" in the lawsuit to describe contraception, and Kavanaugh echoing the phrase drew outrage from Democrats, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who tweeted: "Newsflash, Brett Kavanaugh: Contraception is NOT abortion. Anyone who says so is peddling extremist ideology — not science — and has no business sitting on the Supreme Court." Catherine GarciaCroft amp; Casual Dress Barrow Selling SaWP5xnFn

Alex Jones, the conspiracy theory peddler behind Infowars who has claimed that the Sandy Hook shooting was fake, was permanently suspended from Twitter on Thursday.

The company said both @realalexjones and @infowars were banned from Twitter and Periscope "based on new reports of tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts' past violations." Twitter's policy prohibits users from making "excessively aggressive insults that target an individual, including content that contains slurs or similar language."

Jones, who had about 896,000 followers before getting booted from Twitter, spent his Wednesday in Washington, where he attended a Senate hearing featuring Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, then got into an argument with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). He also confronted CNN reporter Oliver Darcy, telling him he has "the eyes of a rat," streaming the encounter on Periscope. Jones was booted from Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and Apple last month. Catherine Garcia

On Thursday, Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right Brazilian presidential candidate, was stabbed in Minas Gerais while campaigning, his son tweeted.

Flavio Bolsonaro said his father sustained damage to his liver, lung, and intestine. "He lost a lot of blood," he said, and was "almost dead" when he arrived at a local hospital. Bolsonaro's running mate, Gen. Antonio Hamilton Mourao, told Reuters he is now in serious but stable condition. "He underwent surgery, which was successful and he is doing okay," Mourao said. "But his state remains delicate."

Video recorded during Bolsonaro's campaign stop shows him being carried on a person's shoulders, surrounded by supporters. A knife is then seen being raised in the air, then plunging into Bolsonaro's abdomen, Reuters reports. Brazil's Federal Police released a statement saying officers were accompanying Bolsonaro when the attack took place, and the "aggressor" was caught and detained. The incident is now under investigation. Catherine GarciaCasual Selling Selling Dress Taylor Ann Ann Taylor rrxqSX
