Presumably, the reason this is occurring is due to Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) being silenced after impugning Sessions on the senate floor. This is against the rules of the senate, and thus Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) raised an objection, forcing Sen. Steve Daines (R-Montana) who was acting as presiding officer to simply say “the senator will take her seat.”
This brought on a wave of support from the left for Warren, who was compared as a hero to the likes of Rosa Parks, and Malala Yousafzai, along with the Twitter hashtag #shepersisted.
