During the Senate floor debate on the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions, Elizabeth Warren (otherwise known as Pocahontas) called Sessions a “disgrace to the department of justice”, and is now BANNED from speaking on the Senate floor until the debate is over!
This is hands down the BEST news we’ve heard all day!
Here’s more from Fox News:
“Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was prohibited Tuesday night from speaking on the Senate floor for the rest of the debate over Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination to be attorney general.
The drama began when Warren, quoting a 30-year-old letter by civil rights leader Coretta Scott King, referred to the Alabama Republican as a “disgrace.” King’s letter was written in 1986, when Sessions was nominated to the federal bench but was never confirmed.
Warren’s reference drew the ire of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who said that Warren had “impugned the motives of our colleague from Alabama.”
Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont. advised Warren that she was out of order under Rule XIX of the Senate, which states that “no Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”
Below is video of how it all unfolded.
First, it she was WARNED:
Then she kept violating rules and then was told to SIT DOWN:
So to you Pocahontas we say…GOODBYE!
