Former Presidents George H.W. Bush & George W. Bush Shame Trump With Eloquent, Unequivocal Response To White Supremacists

no title

It's so easy to denounce white supremacists, even a Bush can do it!

We kid the former presidents! At this point we'd LOVE to have either of their conservative asses back in the White House. Seriously, that's how low the bar has been lowered by Donald Trump.

George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd Presidents respectively, released a statement on Wednesday about the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

And though it didn't mention Trump by name, it did serve to shame him by explaining how he should have reacted:

Bernie Sanders & More Male Senators Are Reading Coretta Scott King's Letter To Support Elizabeth Warren — And They AREN'T Being Silenced!

Filed under: PolitikViral: NewsSocial Issues

Elizabeth Warren's words will be finished… even if she's not the one saying them.

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Senator was formally silenced by Republican Senators for rejecting Jeff Sessions' attorney general nomination by reading a letter from Coretta Scott King.

Warren's reading of the 1986 letter, in which King objected to Sen. Sessions' nomination to be a federal judge, was cut short by GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — who later banned Warren from the floor for the remainder of the debate.

But even though Warren was silenced, her words found a way right back to the senate floor!

Later in the night, Sen. Jeff Merkley supported his colleague by finishing what she started and elaborated on the context of King's letter — and specifically quoted the section McConnell objected to.

Unlike Warren, however, the Oregon Senator spoke without an interruption from McConnell.

The GOP got another earful of Warren's speech on Wednesday, when Democratic Senators Sherrod Brown, Tom Udall, and Bernie Sanders all read King's words:

Elizabeth Warren will NOT stay silent.

The Massachusetts Senator was interrupted by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell right in the middle of a speech she was giving in opposition to the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general.

Warren was reading a speech by Coretta Scott King — the widow of Martin Luther King Jr. — written in 1986 when Sessions was under consideration for a federal judgeship.

In the letter, King explains her reasoning for rejecting the Republican politician, writing:

"I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama… Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts."

When Warren uttered those last lines, McConnell declared the letter as crossing the line for the senate floor. Republican Sen. Steve Daines agreed, and ordered Warren to keep quiet and sit down.

Of course, Warren didn't take too kindly to being silenced, and appealed the order to continue speaking, noting:
