Elizabeth Warren Claims Mitch McConnell Won’t Speak to Her

Elizabeth Warren Claims Mitch McConnell Won’t Speak to Her

Nevertheless, she persisted

https://youtu.be/QSD8W-kPQC8

In an interview with the Boston Globe, Sen. Elizabeth Warren claimed Sen. Mitch McConnell won’t even say hello to her after she violated Senate rules during floor debate over the confirmation of Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

According to the Globe:

“I’ve spoken to him, but he has not spoken to me,” Warren said, laughing in a disbelieving way, shaking her head. “I say hello to Mitch every chance I get, and he turns his head.”

In February, Senate Majority Leader McConnell invoked scarcely used Rule 19, which prohibits the impugning of other Senators during floor debate. During the Sessions Confirmation debate, Warren read a letter penned by Coretta Scott King (widow of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) in opposition to then Senator Sessions. McConnell invoked Rule 19, Warren kept reading, McConnell said “Nevertheless, she persisted”, neo-feminists received a new rally cry and flocked to tattoo studios to have McConnell’s words inked into their skin, Warren fundraised, and Sessions was still confirmed.

A spokesman for McConnell said he’d never witnessed the Majority Leader snubbing Sen. Warren:

Don Stewart, a spokesman for McConnell, said he couldn’t comment on Warren’s claims. “I’ve never witnessed that and have never seen her approach him so I’m afraid I can’t be much help,” he said.

But victimhood is good for fundraising.

Lieawatha persisted. Aren’t there Native American groups she refuses to speak to and a house she refuses to show?

Mitch has better taste than I thought.

      She wanted a war with her colleagues in the Senate, she started a war with her colleagues in the Senate, now she’s whining about the fact that there’s a war going on in the Senate and the other side hates her.

      Boo hoodly hoo.

    Plus Lizzie lies……….

My opinion of McConnell is slowing coming around. I hope he persists.

Perhaps Mitch doesn’t speak Tsalagi Gawonihisdi.

The american indian who warren defrauded out of his or her chance of an education probably wont talk to her either

Between invoking the nuclear option and refusing to acknowledge this phony squaw, McConnell is looking better all the time!

She did not shake hands with DeVos at the Senate hearing and I’ve seen reports that state that Ted Cruz says hello to her and she ignores him….

I wonder if she bothers to say hello to the average person on the street.

I viscerally despise that woman. Not a nice thing to say, I know, but true all the same.

Her husband must be deaf.

I wouldn’t speak to either of them.

I think it’s fairly safe to ignore everything after the phrase “Elizabeth Warren claimed…”

“How, Shrieking Crow.” Feel better now?

I cannot imagine having to listen to that screeching owl for four years. (I know, I insulted owls!)

Why should be socially greet someone he thinks doesn’t observe basic senatorial rules? Does the faux Native American get her itty bitty feelings hurt?

I wouldn’t talk to her either….she’s an unhinged lunatic, just like the rest of the democrat party.

Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that her account is completely bass-ackwards from reality?

May be a bit of sour grape pow-wow chow still on the menu from her slap down.

Probably the Dems don’t even talk to her. I’ve been watching the Senate on CSPAN2 and it appears she has no friends there. She just walks in, votes, turns around and walks out, or talks to the people at the front desk briefly in her high pitched voice.

    I’ll bet her up-close voice is like a garden trowel on a chalkboard.

    (But infinitely more pleasant than Hillary’s.)

Sen. Mitch McConnell is known for valuing collegiality. He probably got tired of being abused.
