Sen. Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing hadn't even begun before it was disrupted by protestors. Two men, clad in KKK uniforms and wearing foam "#1" fingers, got up and started shouting as Sessions entered the room. The two shouted a variety of things, including Sessions' full legal name, until they were removed by security and arrested. They were associated with the protest group Code Pink.

Although the two were lacking the signature hot pink outfits associated with Code Pink, the group took credit for the stunt on Twitter.
UPDATE: Another Code Pink protestor removed.
