Surprise surprise. The attendees dressed in the white garb of the Ku Klux Klan weren’t in the audience at Sen. Jeff Session’s confirmation hearing to become the U.S. Attorney General.
And, of course, they had crackpot things to say on the way out:
Two men wearing Klu Klux Klan costumes were removed from the confirmation hearing for Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, after they caused a disruption.
As security took them out of the room, they yelled, “you can’t arrest me, I am white!” and “white people own this government!”
It hasn’t ended there. A woman in pink was escorted out for disruptively shouting during Susan Collins’ (R – ME) speech in support of Senator Sessions.
Another protester was escorted out while shouting during Sen. Sessions’ opening remarks.
