#ShePersisted Becomes Rallying Cry for Elizabeth Warren’s Supporters

On Tuesday evening, Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced as the Senate debated Donald Trump's nominee for Attorney General, Senator Jeff Sessions.  Senator Warren had taken the opportunity to read a letter by Coretta Scott King, which criticized Senator Sessions.

Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, justified Senator Warren's silencing, stating, “She was warned. She was given an explanations. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Since then, many have taken to public forums to express their dismay for the fact that Rule XIX, a Senate procedure which prohibits senators from impugning the character of another senator, kept Senator Warren from being able to finish reading Coretta Scott King's letter, and the #ShePersisted hashtag began trending on Twitter.
