'Will not be shushed': Sen Kamala Harris interrupted by male colleagues again

It is nearly as if Senator Harris is not being treated the same as her colleagues.

"So did you not consult it before you came before this committee knowing we would ask you questions about that?" she pressed. Kamala Harris during Tuesday's Senate testimony on the Russian Federation investigation, they inadvertently handed her a megaphone.

During a discussion after the hearing on Anderson Cooper 360, Trump surrogate and former Trump aide Jason Miller remarked that Harris was "hysterical" during her question-and-answer period with Sessions, which correspondent Kirsten Powers called him out on.

Sessions, however, seemed to struggle as he was asked to name the policy he cited.

Republican Senator Richard Burr, chairman of the committee, quickly responded, telling Ms Harris to "let him answer".

Whatever spirit or adverse response Sessions and McCain hoped to get out of Harris didn't happen.

If only this tweet would get old, but nope still relevant because the white dudes keep interrupting Senator Kamala Harris. But, why though? The simple answer appears to be that Senator's Harris interactions with those testifying and her colleagues indeed makes them all uncomfortable. Kamala Harris tried to play the role of Perry Mason by asking a series of rapid-fire questions.

"Chairman, the witness should be allowed to answer the question", Sen.

"Did you not ask your staff to show you the policy that would be the basis for your refusing to answer the majority of questions that have been asked of you?" she interrupted again. At yesterday's testimony, she was interrupted by Senator John McCain while she questioned Sessions on a Department of Justice policy. As she asked for a yes or no answer, Burr cut her off for the last time.

For me, Harris represents every woman who's ever chose to stand up and be heard, no matter how large or small our platform.

But apparently the last few months in D.C. have done little to blunt Harris's sharp prosecution style - which she turned on Sessions yesterday with little remorse. As the two spoke over one another in a tense exchange, Sessions told Harris, "I'm not able to be rushed this fast". How was Sen. Harris 'hysterical?' I don't really understand that.

HOSTIN: They would never do it, and I know Kamala Harris.

Unsurprisingly, this still garnered a non-answer, although her question was relatively straightforward and she's still very clear about it.

Senator Harris's accomplishments speak volumes. "In this setting and this climate, the more information the better, so I think you can qualify as much information as you need to". Ron Wyden (D-OR), Miller said, "I think she was hysterical. Wyden was trying to get to the bottom of answers either".

The CNN commentator and Trump supporter then chimed in: "Hysteria is a neutral quality", he said.

"The interesting thing about the word hysterical is it's a word with a female-baiting history from hystericus, which was once a common medical diagnosis reserved exclusively for women sending them uncontrollably insane, sometimes causing, they would have to perform a hysterectomy", Sara Haines said.
