The Senate had just voted on a judicial nominee and senators were still chatting.

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) was presiding over the Senate calling for order, when Reid said “senators need to sit down and shut up” because Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) had something to say about the bill.

Collins is the ranking member on the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the THUD bill.
