A lawmaker leaned on his previous career as an auctioneer to regain control of a congressional hearing.

On Wednesday, Laura Loomer a far-right internet figure attempted to protest a House Energy and Commerce hearing. Shortly after she started accusing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey of having a bias against conservatives, her shouting was interrupted and drowned out by Rep. Billy Long (R-Mo.). 

Long leaned on his previous career as an auctioneer to regain control of the meeting room until Loomer was escorted out. At which point lawmakers erupted in laughter.
