Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial pick for Attorney General.

During his Tuesday confirmation, three protesters heckled Sessions. In the middle of a speech, two men — one black and one white — stood up to shout “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.”

The black man called Sessions a racist while security moved toward the protesters to escort them out. He continued to speak out against Sessions and Trump’s administration while several security guards removed him from the room.


Some of the audio was cut while the men were shouting, presumably to censor any expletives. They protested the entire time they were escorted.

Sessions resumed his speech for approximately half a minute before a Hispanic woman also stood up to shout “No Trump, no KKK, no fascism, USA.” The woman encouraged those in the room to stand up against Trump’s administration. She also called Sessions a “pig” and continued to protest the entire time security escorted her out.

Sessions continued with his speech.

A previous version of this article misidentified the protesters’ chant.
