The confirmation hearings have begun for President-elect Donald Trump’s nominees.
Today Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala) was up for review.
He was met by a small crazy mob of protesters, among them members of Code Pink.
The video also appears to show Carl Dix from the Revolutionary Communist Party.
“No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA” chants

From NY Post:
The first hearing for a Trump administration Cabinet selection got off to a raucous start Tuesday when two men in white sheets and KKK pointed caps were ejected before Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who has been selected to become attorney general, was even sworn in to testify
The men wearing KKK caps, standing on chairs in the Senate hearing room, claimed they were Sessions’ #1 fans.
“Jefferson Beauregard, you speak for the people!” said one of them, calling the nominee by his first and middle name.
As police escorted the two men out, one yelled, “You can’t arrest me, we’re white. White people don’t get arrested. I’m a white man!”
Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin claimed credit for the KKK-themed protesters — claiming the ejected men were part of her group.
They want to paint Sessions with a ‘racist KKK’ tag.
Yet it was actually Sessions who busted up the KKK in Alabama.
He brought a conviction against a KKK member that bankrupted the Klan there.
Pot and immigration activists were also among the protesters.
Sessions took the raucous disruption well, simply adjusting the glasses on his nose and proceeding.
That’s what we can use.
Someone who doesn’t cower to the crazies and upholds the Constitution on behalf of all.
