Liberal protesters dressed as members of the Klu Klux Klan interrupted the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to confirm Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general on Tuesday.
Two men in white hoods and capes held up paper hand signs reading “KKK” and “Go Jeffie Boy.” As they were escorted out by security, one man yelled, “No, wait a minute, you can’t arrest me, I’m white! White people don’t get arrested.”
Here’s a video of their short protest.
But there’s more…
Then, after the hearing had gotten started, security also escorted a female protester out. This woman wore a grey Statue of Liberty crown and held a sign declaring, “Support Civil Rights Stop Sessions.”
