She was never taught a graceful loser is as important as being a graceful winner. Is this the best Hawaii can elect? Are all people in Hawaii that way? She is not a deep thinker – very shallow. Like a child. Shame, shame!

Senator Hirono Makes Disrespectful and Embarrassing Display During Senate Vote

Senator Mazie Hirono resorted to pathetic dramatics during Monday night’s vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. When it was her turn to cast her vote the senator walked to the table on the floor of the Senate and gave a thumbs down before saying, “hell no.” The disrespectful display was most likely a pathetic attempt to drum up support from Liberals.
This was not the first time Senator Hirono’s embarrassing behavior has drawn criticism. During Barrett’s hearing proceedings, the Senator asked if Judge Barrett had ever, “made unwanted requests for sexual favors, or committed any physical or verbal harassment or assault of a sexual nature?”
Barrett replied with a simple, “no.”
While Hirono claimed she asks every nominee this question many thought the comment was outlandish and disrespectful towards Barrett.
Fox News reports:
The vote did not affect the evening’s outcome but was seen as an encapsulation of the deep frustrations felt by Democrats that President Trump would be filling a court seat just a week from the November election.
The Barrett nomination process brought new tension to Washington that seemed to culminate when Demand Justice, a left-wing organization, called on Sen. Dianne Feinstein to step down from the judiciary committee. The California Democrat also drew fire when she embraced Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., at the end of the fourth and final day of testimony in Barrett’s confirmation hearing.
The Supreme Court said in a press release Monday that Barrett will be able to start her new role after Chief Justice John Roberts administers her judicial oath on Tuesday. Justice Clarence Thomas administered the constitutional oath at Monday’s ceremony.
Barrett told the audience at the South Lawn of the White House Monday night, “It is the job of a senator to pursue her policy preferences. In fact, it would be a dereliction of duty for her to put policy goals aside. By contrast, it is the job of a judge to resist her policy preferences. It would be a dereliction of duty for her to give into them. Federal judges don’t stand for election. Thus, they have no basis for claiming that their preferences reflect those of the people.”
Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court Monday night with every Republican, except for Senator Susan Collins, voting to confirm her. Every Democrat voted in opposition of Barrett’s confirmation.
