Twitter Is So Here For Sally Yates Taking Down Condescending Men

"More Sally Yates, fewer mediocre men," one user said.

Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates is clearly tired of condescending men and Twitter is all about it.

After her testimony before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Monday, Yates has been praised on Twitter for her defense of the law, her takedown of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and her overall sense of calm in dealing with men trying to shut her down. 

This tweet sums it up best: 

President Donald Trump fired Yates in January for refusing to defend his executive order banning refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, so her testimony concerned that ban ― among other matters.

Twitter was most excited that Yates faced off with the patriarchy men who kept trying to shut her down and, nevertheless, she persisted.

Here are some of our favorite tweets about Yates’ badassery:

Never stop, Sally Yates. Never stop.
