CHARLIE KIRK (TURNING POINT USA): I was there for a couple hours, had some very interesting encounters with these far-left-wing activists, many of whom were the ones that were disrupting the actual hearings. They wore that as a badge of honor, and I think that they should actually increase, have harsher penalties against these disrupters. Because it's almost as if you get a parking ticket if you interrupt this and it's on national television. But there was no cohesive message. They were saying things, he's going to rollback human rights --

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Where were they getting their talking points?

KIRK: Well, from the signs that they were given. That was just about it. 

DOOCY: You're saying it's an astroturf crowd.

KIRK: It sure felt like it.
