Congressman uses old auctioneer skills to drown out protester during hearing

Washington (CNN)As a woman interrupted a congressional hearing on Wednesday, Rep. Billy Long, a Missouri Republican who’s a former auctioneer, took the microphone to talk over her in characteristic auctioneer style.

The moment came at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, when far-right activist Laura Loomer began speaking up in the audience. Loomer ignored calls for order and harangued Dorsey, accusing him of political bias in running the social media site.
As she continued, Long started listing off imaginary bids, eventually drowning out what she was saying.
