Senator Mazie Hirono Calls 'Bullshit' on Kavanaugh Hearings


Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii spoke for all of us in a recent interview with ABC News. She succinctly and accurately described her Republican colleagues’ claims they are taking Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh seriously as “bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“We’re not consulted at all. I would like to have us come together and figure out what is the best way to proceed. Not this seat of the pants stuff, and the latest being a letter from the chairman to the Democrats saying we have done everything we can to contact her—that is such bullshit I can hardly stand it.”

On Tuesday night, Hirono had another message for the Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee (and all of the men of this country): “Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing.”
