The first 100 days of Donald Trump鈥檚 presidency have had an abundance of聽controversies. From the historic travel ban聽to compromising many facets of women鈥檚 reproductive health, to name just a few,聽it often feels like it鈥檚 been a fight from day one for upholding basic human rights.

The team that President Trump appointed around him has聽courted just as much controversy as his own election 鈥 there鈥檚 the聽potential conflict of interest in having his son-in-law Jared Kushner in the administration and his daughter Ivanka work from the White House, and everyone from Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch have also drawn criticisms. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was even met with protests at his confirmation hearings earlier this year, and just this week one woman was convicted after simply laughing during the hearing. She could now face a year in prison.

During the confirmation hearing, Desiree Fairooz, a longtime activist聽with the anti-war group Code Pink, was removed from the room聽for laughing during a comment about聽Sessions鈥櫬爁air treatment of all Americans under the law (Sessions has famously said in the past that he was okay with the Ku Klux Klan until he found out they smoked pot. Yep). So, Fairooz laughed at that seemingly ironic聽comment, was escorted out for it, and was later charged with disorderly and disruptive conduct. A聽second charge for 鈥減arading, demonstrating, or picketing within the Capitol鈥 was also given as she was removed.

Many, as a quick Twitter search shows, can鈥檛 help but point out not only the scary precedent this sets, but the ridiculousness of what has happened 鈥 particularly as it applies to the DOJ鈥檚 repeated decisions to not press charges against police officers in shooting deaths of unarmed POC.

Others pointed out the brief and maddening Brock Turner case as a comparison.

Now, Fairooz, a retired children鈥檚 librarian, could face a year in jail and/or a fine 鈥 for laughing at Sessions 鈥 but as she told Vox, she regrets nothing. 鈥淚 do not regret what I did,鈥 she said. 鈥淚 do not regret dissenting at the confirmation of Sessions, and being part of a visible statement to draw attention to a dangerous man who does not deserve to be attorney general. This was and is my responsibility as a citizen.鈥

鈥淩esist the government鈥檚 efforts to infringe upon our rights 鈥 or sit back and watch them disappear.鈥

Do you think Desiree Fairooz鈥檚 conviction makes sense? Let us know @BritandCo.
