Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren has claimed that House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ignores her when she tries to talk to him.The Massachusetts senator said in an interview with the Boston Globe that she was receiving a terrible reception from the Republican – who led a popular vote to prevent her from speaking during the discussion on the appointment of Jeff Sessions.
“I talked to him, but he did not talk to me, and I say hello to Mitch every chance I get and turn his head,” Warren told the paper.The senator was speaking before issuing her new book, “This Battle is Our Battle: The Battle of the Rescue of the Middle Class in America,” and touched on the subject that received national attention.
During the debate over the nomination of Attorney General McConnell, Warren read a letter from Coretta Scott King, wife of late human rights activist Martin Luther King, who objected to the record of civil rights hearings.However, McConnell asked her to stop voting and vote to silence her after she refused. She told the House of Representatives: “She was warned, given an explanation, and yet it continued.”
The phrase “Although it was continuing” was written on the shirts made by a number of Warren supporters who said that silencing her – and then allowing a male colleague to read the letter – was an example of.
