    For these people, a woman doing her job fiercely *is* hysterical.

    • Crazytype

      You seem to know a lot about planned parenthood – not! You know that abortion is only a little part of their services and not all PP institutions even offer abortions? They actually help people with pregnancies, STDs and other issues. More people would actually die of they would stop providing their services. But of course, you guys know better, because your religion tells you PP is satan.

    • Mary-Louise

      Just the Coolest – you said it! Please join me in calling to ask CNN to fire Jason Miller for his ignorant and sexist efforts to defame Senator Harris CNN 404-827-1500 option 2 , option 3. Doesn’t anyone get sued for defamation anymore?

    • Just the Coolest Dude Yo

      +BlackEpyon
      Amen to that. Remember to vote in 2018! If you’re a badass lady with a law degree (or any experience with law, or arguably even management) and you notice that there aren’t any good people at a state or local level position, please run! The worst of the worst get into office because they have no challengers to unseat them

    • Pamela Visconage

      Oh please since when is being a relentless bully a good thing for women?

  2. Mustafiz Ray

    I just want to take a minute to applaud Kamala Harris for doing her job which all the “Senator” failed to do. 👏👏👏👏. Everyone else were behaving like it is a white male fraternity, seriously America, seriously.

    • hazmi mosafeer

      Good work senator kamala Harris

    • debbie541

      american government seems to be full of those old boys afraid of women

    • RAIDER GAINZ

      She failed to do her job when she threw larry wallace under the bus when she forced him into a false settlement with a known opportunist.

    • Missippy Alice

      do not applaud her she is a racist and a bully.

  3. Steven S

    Stephen Colbert was spot on….. yes, many “Southern Gentlemen” are still spooked by aggressive women (you know, those who aren’t barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen) and that “Goatee Dude” is a perfect spokesperson for Trump: misogynistic and bigoted!

    • Collin McLean

      He looks like a mob leader from a batman comic. He just doesn’t sound like a villain!

    • AE He himself has explicitly made public statements. He now receives a ton of flack even from the Republican side, as they come to realize what kind of man he truly is.

      You’ve made many comments about this, AE. It’s almost like you’re angry. No need to get emotional about this, sweetie. Listen to what we’re saying and I’m sure it’ll make sense. 🙂

    • Crinolynne Endymion

      AE – I would get your hearing checked because you’re clearly deaf. Or perhaps your brain is disconnected. The T-man is a poster child of a 1970s old fart; an irrelevant dinosaur. He’s a many times over loser.

  4. chillinginthefridge

    I’m so annoyed with how she was treated. I could not believe what I was watching when it happened. Women are treated SO badly and it makes me so angry.

    • Jus Sayin

      chillinginthefridge you can’t F-ck your way to the top and expects respect ✊

    • Dust In the wind

      sumopit…so true. Mr. Sessions gets what it takes to answer without elongating.

    • Hazukichan X

      Simple strategy for any society: Treat women as well as men, and treat both as well as possible. Stops immense amounts of resentment and enmity and nonsensical biases and loads of other problems. It’s bizarre how hard it still is for so many societies to just do this simple thing… and I would think politely listening to a woman who is speaking in the natural course of her duties, should be part of Respect 101, even for a relatively backwards society… O.o;

    • debbie541

      +pete1201 that does not in any way indicate hysteria

  5. Sen. Harris didn’t get hysterical. Sessions seemed a little hysterical though

  6. Dachusblot

    I’m always bewildered when these guys pull out words like “hysterical” or “shrill” on women who are just behaving the exact same way as their male counterparts. To me, “hysterical” has a very specific definition: a person (of either gender) who is visibly freaking out – shaking, screaming, hyperventilating, that sort of thing. Nothing about Kamala Harris’s behavior was even close to that. Saying she was hysterical is not only demeaning but completely nonsensical.

    I was also shocked by people saying Hillary was “shrill” back during the election. I mean, I’m not a huge fan of Hillary, but she has a perfectly normal voice. And of course, the really ironic thing is that the people who said that were all generally supporters of Trump, who yells ALL THE FREAKING TIME (and quite obnoxiously, too).

  7. Gene Taylor

    I worked in the public sector for 8.5 years. Documenting policies and procedures, especially one’s of the magnitude Senator Harris was asking for details on, are always documented. They are official and binding. Jeff Sessions should have had no problem answering that question, so I am calling BS on his answer

    • Hazukichan X

      Yeah, he was just trying to wriggle out of it by stalling and giving elaborate non-answers like “Uh, well, that is to say, I believe that I did not know of the thing that you speak…” that he can later go “Oh right, I was mistaken” on if pinned down outright… She pressed him to get straight, unambiguous answers, and the asshat off camera tries to shut her down because it’s not nice to badger the poor old rich man who doesn’t want to tell the truth… =_=;;;

  8. Astro Tag1

    Thumbs up if Senator Harris is your new Hero.

  9. Nionivek

    I take it what the appropriate thing for Harris to do was to first offer Sessions a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, then go “Would you be a dear and tell me exactly where this FBI procedure is written?” While wearing a ball gown and a summer hat.

  10. Jasper Stuart

    A woman asserting herself is “hysterical”? Is this the 1800s? Quick, somebody get sen. harris a vibrator to treat her hysteria!
    (Yes, that’s a thing. That’s an actual historical thing. Look it up.)

    • Dak Lamerbusch

      Canuckmom1958 No no no!!!! Think about it: will Bone Spurs *EVER* be able to do *anything???* Of course not! Pence? He has s head on his shoulders even if It’s a racist, evil-minded one. *He* will get things done. #Trumpuntil2018elections

    • Simon Kanner

      Do you mean she was on her period?

    • Charlee B

      Jasper Stuart Then does Brett need one as well?

  11. Kryptonite

    sessions lies as well as my 9-year-old niece. maybe she can be appointed attorney general

  12. Karloss Coletti

    I have never, literally not once, seen men calling other men “hysterical”. It’s an obviously and historically gendered form of insult.

    • Charlee B

      Karloss Coletti And yet there Brett was….

    • dogboy1953

      “Hyster” is Greek for woman.

    • Stephanie Jade

      Karloss Coletti: This is all part of Trump’s plan to “make america great again” — by bringing back ignorance and racism to mainstream society.

    • Stephanie Jade

      +DoctorWeeTodd If KH is honorable by not seeking the death penalty (two wrongs do not make a right) that is an honorable thing to do. Too many people ‘bend’ rules for their own desires — THAT IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOCIETY.

  13. Patricia Curtis

    Kamala Harris was the Attorney General for California before being elected senator, and she was good at it. Sessions was quite obviously doing everything in his power to run her clock down without having to address any penetrating questions.

    • Secretary Charles

      Accelerationist I was wandering the same thing! I wander why.

    • Annihilate3275

      Patricia Curtis only likes Harris because she’s a woman. Sexist idiot.

    • Leslie Lang

      We (the country) are in the position we are in because people vote blindly for politicians according to race or sex. Instead of looking at their platforms and deciding on whether or not they actually have something to contribute. Too many corrupt politicians have been elected this way and when the truth comes out, their voters are left wondering what happened. California is in a horrendous state thanks to the liberals. So I don’t see how you can say she was good at it. She let off a bank in return for political contributions to her campaign. She was the only one that bank (Minchen(?)) donated too. She is morally bankrupt and politically bankrupt. Kamala Harris is for sale and the people of California and our Congress don’t need anyone like her.

    • Randy Boisa

      yea she was good at letting out thousands of felons from California  prisons to terrorize your neighborhoods

    • debbie541

      obviously

  14. HeyIt'sBaert

    The only time it’s appropriate to call a woman hysterical is in the context of them being funny.

    • Or, when she is indeed behaves hysterically, like Sessions did. And Sessions should have been called out on hysterical

  15. Kathy Schwab

    This is the second time McCain has interrupted Senator Harris during these hearings. She knows what she’s doing and she knew what he was doing and she wasn’t going to allow him of eating up her questioning time by elaborating unnecessarily on his answer. I admire her.

    • Supernovagirl500

      Kathy Schwab Loretta Lynch beats most anyone when it comes to eating up time during a Congressional hearing. Sessions has a long way to go to cach up with her ability to spin a topic and insure that few questions get asked.

    • Kathy Schwab

      +Supernovagirl500 While that may be true the focus here is on Senator Harris questioning Sessions and I ‘m sure if Senator Harris needs to question Lynch she will be just as aggressive and won’t allow Lynch to eat up her time. We can discuss Lynch when she comes up for questioning.

    • Mc Cain is a flip flopping weasel, one minute he’s talking all about the senate working in s respectful way, then the next he exhibits his true partisan colors (old white republican dotard)

    • xZANZIBARZx

      Kathy Schwab that doesn’t mean it was right to allow any bumbling fool of any gender (cause apparantly there are more than 2) to bully anyone in these hearings. Kamel Harris is a rude, unsavory woman and an embarrassment to my state of CA

    • Ryan Daniel

      I truly feel sorry for you if you admire Harris.. She is a fraud backed by corporate money.

  16. Montesama314

    What ticks me off about the moment isn’t simply Harris getting interrupted, but that smug little smile on Sessions’s face.

  17. Ellis R Roy

    ‘Hysterical’ that’s not a term I would have used. She’s a former prosecutor, and that’s what prosecutors do. They go after the suspect in an investigation, or a defendant in court, should they choose to testify. Sessions chose to testify!

  18. Traci Lewis

    An intelligent woman of color will always be termed ‘hysterical’, ‘combative’, etc. Ask me how I know.

    • +Traci Lewis You’re a fucking parasite. You will be cast out with all of the garbage you represent. This country will remain under the control of the white man and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    • ddcurtis21

      Michelle Obama was NEVER viewed as hysterical or combative neither was Susan Rice, Oprah Winfrey, Wendy Williams, etc.

    • Liam Boyd

      id ask but i think ur profile picture is the answer

    • Stephanie Jade

      Firstly, KH is not Black. She is half Black and half Caucasian (mother is from India). Look at her skin — no Black woman could ever be that light skinned. Second, in this instance, the race card can be put down. This was a SEXIST comment and was not about intersectionality.

  19. Linda Correia

    She was doing her job and very well, a lot of men and some women are afraid of strong women she is tired of sessions lies, and his poor me you making me nerves crap, he was acting like his boss, a five year old who needs a nap !!!! Why is anybody helping Sessions anyway, he is a big boy with a big boy job, he should be able to handle Kamala’s questions !!!

    • Ryan Daniel

      Harris hasn’t done anything to improve California. Harris has made the state worse off by allowing and supporting illegal aliens to enter the country.

  20. Abby Durham

    I have never wanted to hit someone with a brick more than when sessions laughed at burr wrongfully shutting Harris down

    • Richard Hoepfner

      Please Abby, come back when you know what you are talking about.
