Just when you think politicians couldn’t be any more classless, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) seemingly tells everyone to hold her beer while she displays her tactlessness for the whole world to see.
During Monday evening’s Supreme Court confirmation vote of now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett, Hirono walked straight up to the Senate desk where the vote was being counted out, gave a thumbs down, said “Hell no” as her vote and walked out of the chambers.
Take a look:
Hirono has had a habit of embarrassing herself on a national stage lately, as she was the Senate Democrat who asked Barrett during her confirmation hearing a couple of weeks ago whether she had ever been “committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature.” Of course, Barrett said no. But, Hirono felt it incumbent upon herself to do her “due diligence” as a Senator to ask the tough questions.
