Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., says she takes every opportunity to say hello to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., but he has refused to speak with her since her notorious February battle with Republicans over the nomination of Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.
The progressive senator spoke about her experience with McConnell in an interview with the Boston Globe, while promoting her upcoming book "This Fight Is Our Fight." The book reportedly ends right before Republicans voted to silence her during the debate over Sessions nomination. A move that was backed by McConnell.
The action gained nationwide attention, resulting in an outpouring of support for Warren. According to Warren, hard feelings led McConnell to stop speaking with her.
"I've spoken to him, but he has not spoken to me," Warren said. "I say hello to Mitch every chance I get, and he turns his head."
