    I thought it was a white make shutting down a Native American woman?

    It’s those same hypocrites who claim to love freedom of speech – except for speech they don’t like. Deplorables !

    I found this speech given by Senator Rubio helpful for understanding what happened in the Senate.

    Dr. Williams, as an anti-Trumper, I agree that it doesn’t “look good” what happened to Sen. Warren. But what did you make of Sen. Tim Scott’s defense of why he voted to suspend Warren’s speaking rights from the floor? He said the following day that it was not because of CSK’s letter but because she read the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s remarks that Sessions was a “disgrace”!

    I don’t agree with everything Sen. Scott does or believes, but it seems to me that’s the kind of “optics” the Republicans want. His 20-25 minute speech yesterday was one of the best things I’ve heard on the Hill in months.

      Hey, Matt. I’m curious as to what it means to be “anti-trump”? Does it mean that you don’t like the man, are against anything he does as President, are against the way he talks? Just curious.

    Thank you so much for speaking to this… I have sort of been stunned and unable to articulate what was so disturbing to me about this…
