Protesters dressed as KKK forcibly removed from Sessions confirmation hearing

On the 10th of January, Trump’s attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions began his confirmation hearings before Congress. He was known 30 years ago as a KKK sympathiser and this came up in the hearings. He claimed he would support civil rights, but anti-Trump protesters begged to disagree. Several were removed from the hearing, including two Code Pink activists dressed as KKK members to mock Session’s past. Both of the protesters in the hoods were arrested.
