A mob has gathered outside of Mitch McConnell's Kentucky home

According to photos released by Huffington Post's Front Page Editor Phil Lewis, a large crowd has gathered outside of Mitch McConnell's home in Louisville, Kentucky.

The crowd is reportedly reading the letter Coretta Scott King wrote about now Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

One twitter user named Nathaniel Gardner captured video of the crowd reportedly 200 strong, repeating the words of explanation concerning Warren's dismissal from the podium.

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.
