The rule was applied capriciously and wrongly.
The rule was put in place to not disparage a Senator during debate.
This was debating a nominee for a cabinet position who happened to be a Senator.
You must be able to debate honestly including faults for cabinet nominations.
The rule does not apply here.
Rubio was wrong as usual. McConnell was wrong.
I guess you guys can take pride you silenced the minority, you do seem to do that.
But are you really honestly saying that was proper to do??? Really?
