Warren: He turns his head when I say hello.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in a recent interview that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brushes her off when she says hello.
In an interview with The Boston Globe about the release of her latest book, “This Fight Is Our Fight,” Warren said McConnell turns his head when she says hello.
“I’ve spoken to him, but he has not spoken to me,” Warren told the newspaper. “I say hello to Mitch every chance I get, and he turns his head.”
Warren’s book, which comes out April 18, reportedly ends before the infamous February incident when Republicans voted to bar her from speaking on the Senate floor following her blistering comments on former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), then the nominee for attorney general. McConnell defended the move at the time, saying Warren had been warned and saying that she "impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama," referring to Sessions.
"Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation," he said. "Nevertheless, she persisted."
