We all get dumber listening to Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI). She can say whatever she wants without consequence. She represents Hawaii, which is all but a single-party state. Look, she’s an attack dog. She says whatever the party feeds her, albeit she doesn’t do it well. In fact, she’s quite a disaster scene. Yet, there is one question that she says will be asked of all nominees to our courts, and that is if they ever committed sexual assault or harassment in their history. It’s a total pandering move. And you look abjectly stupid when you ask someone, like Judge Amy Coney Barrett, if she was ever accused of such behavior.
Then again, it’s Mazie. And yes, she did ask Judge Barrett if she raped anyone upon becoming a legal adult.
“Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” she asked.

If I were Mazie Hirono I would find a new line of work that doesn’t involve public speaking— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) October 13, 2020

Did Mazie Hirono just ask Judge Barrett if she ever committed sexual assault???— Henry Rodgers (@henryrodgersdc) October 13, 2020
Mazie Hirono @maziehirono truly does not understand the role of the Supreme Court. I’m embarrassed for her.— JJJ (@Johnny_Joey) October 13, 2020
Hirono now asking Barrett if she has ever committed rape.— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) October 13, 2020
Stop. Just stop, lady. It’s already bad enough you didn’t know what illegal immigration means. It was hilarious that you made the Trump administration’s case regarding no obstruction of justice during the hearing with former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein back in June. But with this question, you should probably take it off the docket. You looked out of your depth. I mean, we all know you are, but this was unnecessary. But hey, I won’t stop you from looking like an idiot. Hirono is always good for popcorn-worthy exchanges.
Starting today, I'm asking nominees to our courts, under oath, whether or not they have a history of sexual assault or harassment. Like in other industries, our judges are in positions of power & #TimesUp. pic.twitter.com/Jk0NcTBi3h— Senator Mazie Hirono (@maziehirono) January 10, 2018
