Fox News Host Forced to Cancel Live SCOTUS Broadcast Due to Leftist Protesters

It’s not uncommon to broadcast live from the steps of the Supreme Court during a newsworthy event. Even more so when the President of the United States is announcing his pick for a vacancy on the court that could shape America for decades to come.

Very “volatile” protesters, however, many of whom had no little to no idea who President Trump’s pick of D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh even is, shut down one such broadcast. (RELATED: Five Things You Need to Know About Trump’s SCOTUS Pick).

Fox News host Shannon Bream had planned on doing a live show from the steps of the Supreme Court but had to pick up shop and head back to the studio when she “felt threatened” by the unruly mob around her.

“Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field,” she wrote shortly before her show was to begin. “The mood here tonight is very volatile.”

Bream reported that police were shutting down the street as a means to regain control of the situation.

She followed that announcement with an update less than one hour later indicating she and the production crew simply had to get off the street and head back to the safety of the studio.

“Literally had to bail on our live show from #SCOTUS,” she reported. “Moving the show back to the safety of the studio.”

As you might expect, liberals took the opportunity to mock Bream for being a snowflake due to her decision to go back to the studio.

One, Bream is not intimidated by very much. Two, liberal protesters have grown increasingly unhinged in the last few weeks, and another SCOTUS pick for Trump will surely escalate their wild behavior. Three, it wasn’t all that long ago that an unhinged leftist shot up a softball field in Virginia, so the threat is pretty real.

Fox News later described the scene as “tense” with some protesters “screaming back and forth at each other amid a heavy law-enforcement presence.”

With many incidents of harassment lately involving women who are seen as siding with the President, is it any wonder Bream, a fair and balanced Fox News reporter, decided to get out of Dodge? (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Warns Protesters Confronting Trump Officials: Calm Down).

Thankfully, Shannon Bream was able to make it back to the Fox News studios unharmed, but she should have been able to anchor her show from the steps of the Supreme Court without fearing for her safety.

Americans have every right to protest, but they do not have the right to put the safety of others in jeopardy.
