First, she read a letter on the Senate floor written by the late Edward Kennedy calling President Trump’s choice for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, “a disgrace.”
Then, she continued by quoting Coretta Scott King’s letter opposing Sessions as a federal judge.

Ted Kennedy famously killed a woman at Chappaquiddick, so his calling anyone “a disgrace” is not valid. Mrs. King is not here to say whether she would still oppose Sessions – who is widely known to have supported the prosecution of Ku Klux Klan members.
The KKK was a Democratic Party offshoot. In fact, one of the most revered of all Democrat senators was Robert Byrd, a former KKK kleagle. So when Majority Leader Mitch McConnell used an old rule to shut her up – he wasn’t ending debate at all. He was putting a stop to a vicious left-wing smear.
Not that it mattered.
The best that Warren got out of this was some nice fundraising by left-wingers that agree with her. Jeff Sessions received a party-line vote of 52 to 47 and was sworn in Thursday morning by Vice President Mike Pence. He will be a great Attorney General for all the people, unlike the two Obama-era AGs.
Eric Holder accused Americans of being “cowards” afraid to talk about race – when race sometimes seems to be all the talk about. He refused to prosecute the Black Panthers over voter intimidation in Philadelphia. He was censured by the Congress over the Fast & Furious scandal – becoming the only cabinet member in U.S. history to be held in Contempt of Congress.

His replacement, Loretta Lynch, was aggressive on civil rights and investigated the Chicago Police Department, but failed to hold the IRS accountable for targeting conservative organizations and failed to prosecute Hillary Clinton over her home server. She also met with Bill Clinton on an airplane, polluting her involvement in the scandal, and giving her a way out of going after Hillary.
Taken together, these two AGs compiled a disgusting record of law enforcement. Both of them also let President Obama get away with not enforcing immigration laws for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Warren as a hypocrite.
I believe that Mrs. Warren is such a despicable leftist that Mitch McConnell just couldn’t take it anymore – and so he shut her down. Right or wrong, it leads to articles such as this that expose her for what she is.
My previous column on her also focuses on her hypocrisy. It’s called “Hypocrite Clinton surrogate Elizabeth Warren is plenty rich.” The column is about her personal wealth – but you can find other studies about her claims of Native American heritage.
Thank God that McConnell shut her up. But he did not abridge her freedom of speech. That is what liberals do. She could have walked out into the hall and CNN/MSNBC would have lapped up her lies and run them on national cable TV.
Speaking of the media, the almost unanimous verdict was that McConnell took away her free speech and that she now is the Number One spokesliberal against Trump’s agenda.
Thank you Jeff Bust.
I don’t know Jeff Bust, but the Chicago Tribune published a column by him about why he voted for Trump instead of for Hillary Clinton. Here is one brief pull quote:
“I voted for Trump because was the alterative to letting a collection of free-spenders, organizers, race-baiters, intellectuals, tree-huggers, and professional values arbitrators continue to spend our grandchildren’s money.”
That sounds precisely like Elizabeth Warren.
