On Tuesday, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was notably escorted out of a press conference with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson after daring to ask questions about Russia.
Mitchell tried to get a few pressing answers from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. She asked:
“Can you respond to the threats from China?”
“Can you be sure the Trump administration will be strong against Vladimir Putin?”
“Can you assure us that Russia will not be able to move further in Ukraine?”
You can then see Mitchell grabbed by the arms and escorted out while saying:
“We haven’t had any time in here.”
Just for doing her job.
Here’s that video:
You guys. This happened today.

Bill O’Reilly, who gives Donald Trump a run for his money when it comes to misogyny, chose Wednesday, the International Day of Women, to make a sexist attack on Mitchell, calling her “unruly.”
And, a hashtag was born:

Some reminded O’Reilly of his own past:

But the best response came from Mitchell, who ended her show on Wednesday by saying, “And that does it for this UNRULY edition of Andrea @MitchellReports.”

From unruly women everywhere, we thank you, Ms. Mitchell.
