Today's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing wouldn't be complete without Hawaii's Democrat Senator, Mazie Hirono, making a complete fool of herself.
During her questioning of Attorney General Bill Barr, which was mostly a long winded and nonsensical monologue, Hirono immediately engaged in smears.
Sen. Mazie Hirono to AG Barr: "Now the American people know that you are no different from Rudy Giuliani, or Kellyanne Conway, or any of the other people who sacrificed their once-decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the Oval Office" https://t.co/VVR9ntwuBq pic.twitter.com/I6iuk5W34Z— CBS News (@CBSNews) May 1, 2019
Near the end of her rant, Chairman Lindsey Graham had enough.
"You slandered this man from top to bottom, so if you want more of this you're not going to get it. If you want to ask him questions, you can," he said.

This is Attorney General Barr's second time as the head of the Department of Justice. He is a patriot who admirably served in the position under President George H.W. Bush and who is serving with dignity under President Donald Trump.
I'll leave you with this nice reminder:
Mazie Hirono said the gang rape allegations against Kavanaugh manufactured by Michael Avenatti were "credible," so you know her judgement is ?? https://t.co/Sx5AKW00mt— Matt Wolking (@MattWolking) May 1, 2019
