John Hoge has a succinct post over at his place. Fauxcahontas Gonged
Elizabeth Warren was silenced as she impugned Sen. Jeff Sessions, which is apparently a no-no.
Immediately, Democrats took up Ms. Warren’s cause, urging on social media for Republicans to “#LetLizSpeak.” Ms. Warren said on Twitter that Mr. McConnell had “silenced Mrs. King’s voice” on the Senate floor, to say nothing of “millions who are afraid & appalled by what’s happening in our country.” Within hours of being shut down on the Senate floor, Ms. Warren read the letter from Mrs. King on Facebook, attracting more than two million views — an audience she would have been unlikely to match on C-Span, if she had been permitted to continue speaking in the chamber.
The press is calling it a loss for Republicans, which is pretty much the script every time Republicans do something.
