Vice President Mike Pence Decided To Face His Foes Head On, Refusing To Exit The Capitol Building Through A Side Entrance As Protesters Swarmed The Area Following The Confirmation Of Justice Brett Kavanaugh To The Supreme Court.

Pence and his security detail had been exiting toward the front steps of the Senate when he appeared to stop for a second as the crowd stationed in the plaza outside the Capitol chanted “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms Jim Morehand reportedly told Pence he could exit through a back entrance if he wanted to escape the protesters. As Pence’s security detail told him about the updated exit plan, the vice president stopped and told his handlers, “Let’s do it.”
