Kamala Harris (D-CA) was interrupted during her questioning of the witnesses, co-host Mika Brzezinski said it was “pathetic.” Co-host Joe Scarborough  brought up the subject, saying, “Mika, another interesting thing that happened, and I have a feeling that you may want to talk about this because you talked about it before, but the junior senator from California, Senator Harris, once again called out by men on the committee because they thought that she was too assertive. Last night on a network she was called hysterical when, of course, Ron Wyden was very aggressive. Nobody called him hysterical or condemned him … Jeff Sessions was quite colorful.
