Trump repeated a George Soros conspiracy theory moments before Kavanaugh vote
Trump tweeted today that proctors were “paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad.”
Early Friday our President Donald Trump tweeted that people “protesting” against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Court by confronting Congress members are only “paid professionals only trying to make Senators look bad,” he also added that they were “paid for by Soros and others.”
President Donald Trump until now never referenced Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros.
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers

Ever since Kavanaugh’s nomination, a lot of prominent conservative figures have referenced that Soros might be involved in protest movements. Only two weeks ago a columnist who writes for National Review has accused Deborah Ramirez, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual harassment/misconduct.
Only week later same columnist from National Review wrote that the 2 women who confronted Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator in the US Capitol and confronted him about their own experiences of sexual harassment/sexual assault were evidence that “ACORN’s tactics… live on in the senator’s elevator confrontation with an activist from a Soros-backed group.”
National Review columnist John Fund is offering “sincere apologies” for spreading false information about Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez.
Last week, a number of false claims spread through RW media about Christine Blasey Ford, misidentifying her w/a women of the same name. pic.twitter.com/UycpC85Muf

Acorn is a community organization, which was accused many times by many who lean on the right of huge voter fraud. Evidence of John Fund was that these women worked with the Center for Popular Democracy, which was funded by the Open Society Foundation, a Soros-led effort.
