The left is buzzing about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s racial quackery on the Senate floor during a discussion of fellow Senator Jeff Sessions’ nomination for attorney general. Sessions, who worked alongside Senate Democrats for decades, has apparently morphed into a virulent racist. Or perhaps he was always a racist and his race-obsessed, media-hungry adversaries just never saw fit to mention it.
Warren attempted to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King Jr., on the Senate floor in an attempt to paint Sessions as a racist.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shut down Warren, citing an obscure rule known as Rule XIX, which prohibits senators from attacking the character of their fellow senators. The left celebrated Warren’s act of “bravery.”
