Elizabeth Warren was unhinged.
She unloaded the usual left-wing playbook by calling Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions a racist.
But a surprising figure sent Warren a message in response – and it made her look like a fool.
Before the final vote on Sessions confirmation for Attorney General, Warren read a letter by Coretta Scott King – the wife of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Warren used the letter to try and smear Sessions as a racist.
Republicans objected and used the rules of the Senate to end her speech.
Democrats were furious, but Senate rules prevent members from attacking the reputation of other Senators during floor speeches.
The reaction on the left and in the media was swift and they quickly elevated the radical left-wing Warren to near god-like status.
But not every member of the King family was happy.
Alveda King – Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece – appeared on Fox News and ripped Warren for playing the race card.
“Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece on Wednesday accused Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren of trying to “stir up emotions” and “play the race card” by invoking the King family name during a Senate floor speech Tuesday.
Senate Republicans voted along party lines late Tuesday to silence Warren for impugning another senator, a violation of Senate rules. During a lengthy floor speech expressing her opposition to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination to head the Justice Department, Warren had read aloud a letter that Coretta Scott King had sent to the Senate in 1986, when the chamber was debating whether to confirm Sessions to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.
“It’s almost like a bait and switch. Stir up their emotions, use the name of King — and my name is Alveda King — stir up people’s emotions, play the race card, which she was attempting to do,” Alveda King, a Fox News contributor, told Fox Business Network.”
King also said her Aunt would have supported Sessions confirmation because of his fight for equal educational opportunities for black children.
“King described her aunt, and family at large, as “a peace maker.” And she suggested if Scott King were alive today, she would endorse Sessions’ record for having worked to prosecute the Ku Klux Klan and desegregate public schools.
“Her intentions were never to divide during her whole life,” King said, noting that she served as her communications and correspondence secretary for years. “And so in that letter, she would be referring to perhaps some of his comments. However, she would agree today that he of course ended some school desegregation, he worked to prosecute members of the KKK. Aunt Coretta was a very reasonable woman and she, with integrity, would have noted that he had done some great work in fighting against discrimination.”
When Democrats are losing an argument, they always resort to the same old name calling.
Racist. Bigot. Sexist.
That’s the standard operating procedure for Democrats when they’re on the losing end of a fight.
And Warren drew whatever was left from that dry well to attack Sessions character and position herself as the most hysterically opposed to Trump’s Attorney General nominee.
With the left’s base thirsting for bloodsport combat against Trump, any Democrat looking to run for President must bear their fangs at every turn.
But, in her haste to smear Sessions, Warren stepped in it by invoking the King family name.
So Alveda King set her straight.
