“Give me a break!”

Sen. Kamala Harris habitually poses rapid-fire questions of committee witnesses before they finish answering her previous questions. The most recent example occurred Tuesday during her examination of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Harris took to Twitter and played the sexism card after she was cautioned to allow the witness to answer.

She included a link to her campaign fundraising page, of course.

Was it a case of sexism or a matter of Senate decorum? That was the question MacCallum posed of Rep. Marsha Blackburn and Democratic pollster Jessica Tarlov Wednesday.

Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, admitted that although there are instances when members of Congress have to move testimony of witnesses along, in Kamila’s case it could possibly “be construed as disrespectful.”

“If every time I have felt… diminished in some way, I never would have finished a conversation… or got a bill passed,” Blackburn said.

Tarlov countered that in the attorney general’s case, it wasn’t so much a case of disrespect but rather that “Sessions was not prepared for that question.”

MacCallum brought the discussion back on-topic — claims of sexism.

“That’s exactly what bothers me about this whole argument,” she began. “Male, female- You know there’s so much in this country now about- we don’t want anything to be gender, but as soon as someone gets pushed back, their gut place to go often is ‘oh now I’m being punished because I’m a woman.’”

She concluded, “Give me a break!”
