In Sessions' first back-and-forth with a Democrat, Sen.

Democratic Senator Kamala Harris has been a constant topic of political news during the past two weeks.

Liberals took to social media to proclaim that it was Harris who was interrupted and silenced - not Sessions - and pointed to a similar instance the week before when she was admonished for doing the same thing during former FBI Director James Comey's testimony.

Seemingly, less concerned with getting a firm answer than they were with rescuing Sessions, Sens.

She repeatedly interrupted a fine and decent human being, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as she tried to get all her political agenda questions in. Hostin was livid, saying she only did so when people were trying to "evade the question". "I don't understand that".

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. Kamala Harris is a refreshing, truth-seeking voice. "Would you say that?"

"It's a Greek word: hysterical, hysteria, I guess, which means uterus, as in 'grab them by the ...' Like that", she said. "And what I think is so offensive is that she is the most even-keeled, stately person that you will meet". Senator Burr got in on the fun once again, reprimanding Harris to "let him answer".
