The Senate promptly voted 49-43 to silence her for the rest of the session on the nomination of Jeff Sessions as attorney general.
From the Washington Times:
The 49-43 vote, which broke along party lines, meant Ms. Warren was not able to continue her floor speech attacking Sen. Jeff Sessions, one of her colleagues and Mr. Trump’s nominee to head the Justice Department.
It marked a new low in already frosty relations in Washington, where Democrats have mounted strenuous objections to Mr. Trump’s agenda. But going after Mr. Sessions, a long-time colleague who has worked with many of the Democrats in the chamber, was too much for the GOP.
Democrats were in the middle of a 30-hour debate, holding the floor to blast Mr. Sessions when Ms. Warren made the comment in question.
“The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in demanding the vote to punish her.
He said Ms. Warren had violated the rules once, had been warned and given an explanation, and “nevertheless she persisted,” notching a second violation that forced him to act.Democrats are opposed to a peaceful transference of power in a way not seen in 156 years.
They cannot argue facts, logic, or the law, and so Warren and other Democrats attack the person.
ABC, NBC, and other pro-Democratic Party news outlets called the rule "arcane."
Actually, the rule is quite clear. Sorry if SJWs with bylines cannot understand the banning of ad hominem attacks.
"Trump the Establishment" is an account on how the Establishment used the media to stop the Trump Train in the general election by constantly badgering him on personal issues, often petty. But Trump prevailed based on his abilities as a CEO, and his stances on the real issues of the economy and national security, which I also delve into.
