On the Senate floor tonight, an extraordinary event. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) led a vote in which 49 GOP Senators chose to silence Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for reading aloud the words of Coretta Scott King, civil rights activist and the wife of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Warren was reading King's historic letter protesting the confirmation of noted white supremacist Jeff Sessions as a federal district court judge in the Southern District of Alabama.
“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” said Mitch McConnell about why Republican senators basically told Warren to shut up.
Perhaps the good Senators from the party of Trump will do themselves a favor and Google the phrase, “Streisand Effect.”
The letter is here in full, embedded below, and is hopefully about to be shared and read aloud in many other places.
