Elizabeth Warren was attacking Senator Jeff Sessions last night, reading a letter from Loretta Scott King, and claiming he was a racist (despite prosecuting the Klan). Mitch McConnell invoked Senate Rule XIX, which forbids any Senator from "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.", after first being warned.

Mitch then cited subsection 4 of Rule 9, 

4. If any Senator, in speaking or otherwise, in the opinion of the Presiding Officer transgress the rules of the Senate the Presiding Officer shall, either on his own motion or at the request of any other Senator, call him to order; and when a Senator shall be called to order he shall take his seat, and may not proceed without leave of the Senate, which, if granted, shall be upon motion that he be allowed to proceed in order, which motion shall be determined without debate. Any Senator directed by the Presiding Officer to take his seat, and any Senator requesting the Presiding Officer to require a Senator to take his seat, may appeal from the ruling of the Chair, which appeal shall be open to debate.

Warren was forced to take her seat.

Here's some of the best moments. Her voice is even more annoying than Hillary's.

Was just kind of dumb move by McConnell... made her voice much louder and heard by all.

This was a gift to her.

She preaches to her base. I don't think anyone else will think her opinion is worth fuck-all.

She broke the rules, which will now apparently be followed by the Senate.

Good for Mitch.

Basically, they took a speech that would have only been noticed by people strongly opposed to the nomination, and made it national news that a lot of people who would have never heard it will now pay attention to. 

They tried to silence her by giving her a megaphone.

Yeah, this was a victory for the democrats. Sessions will be approved and warren was told to sit down and shut up but the democrats won this one.

A saw another poster get attacked here for "fake news" for making a headline like this. It was the other "team" tho so I'm sure this one's acceptable by the OGers.

More coverage is never a good thing for her. I never met someone that heard her talk and came away impressed or liking her in the slightest

By Tuesday night, the hashtag #LetLizSpeak was trending on Twitter.

Which sounds absolutely ridiculous and unthreatening, until you realize that twitter hashtags are what elected the sitting President.

Checkmate, Trumptards.

Trump was organic, this is contrived. Just like all the marches and protests 

Literally means nothing

He might be trying to elevate her status as a 2020 Presidential candidate because she's clearly the most emotionally childish of all the dem candidates for 2020.

Then it would be ingenious...  Although I highly doubt the dems would pick her in 2020...

Yeah, good for Mitch. He could have let her talk for one minute and no one would have paid much attention. Or he could act the fool and throw a hissy fit now everyone is paying attention. A real smart play.

Yawn. Would have been a little more entertaining if someone knock her over when she got booted off her pedestal.

She gets a hashtag, Trump gets his AG.

Yet another way to twist a rule to silence the truth about a shitty appointee.

I'm actually surprised her feminist and native american warrior superpowers didn't result in scalps being taken and turned into tampons.
