Amy Schumer Dares Police to Arrest Her in Senate Building...

Comedian Amy Schumer dared the Capitol Police to arrest her Thursday at the Hart Senate office building. They took her up on the offer.

Schumer, the cousin of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, was detained by police and escorted outside the premises. She was one of 300 protesters to make noise in the Hart building.

She wasn't deterred it seems.

“No matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down," Schumer said. "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter."

Nor was she the only celebrity to be detained. Actress Emily Ratajkowski posted her experience on Instagram.

Popular 1980s actress Molly Ringwald likened the arrest to fascism.

The Daily Caller's Benny Johnson, who witnessed the entire scene, reported that the incident wasn't quite as dramatic as the celebrities are making it seem.

I watched Schumer and Ratajkowski chatting with the police officers and dancing before they were led away. The group was smiling and under no duress. The officers gave the Hollywood crew pink wristbands for some reason before walking them out.

Based on the ease of the event, I did not expect there to be much made of the arrests. However, I was stunned to read the coverage of the event as far more dramatic and stress-filled than it actually was. No report mentioned that the two Hollywood stars verbally agreed to be arrested or that they were having a nice time while it happened. (Daily Caller)
