The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Feb. 8
Happy hump day! If you're in or around New York, you've probably spent the day in a state of total confusion, due to the fact that it's basically summer outside, yet tomorrow, it's somehow supposed to be a snowstorm?! It's a crazy world we live in, you guys.
Weather aside, though, today wasn't too insane, minus Trump's "Easy D!" tweet (OK then, Donald) and the condemnation-turned-rallying-cry heard 'round the world. For more on those events and much more, read on.

"She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted." This quote from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may have been meant as a criticism of Elizabeth Warren after she read a letter by Coretta Scott King while opposing Jeff Sessions' nomination, but it's since become a feminist mantra. The hashtag #LetLizSpeak is taking over, and everywhere, women (including Hillary Clinton) are banding together in support of Warren and her inspiring persistence.
