Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii went too far yesterday when her questioning of Trump’s Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett went off the rails.
It was clear Hirono was trying to cover the tracks of what the left did to Kavanaugh because she prefaced her shameful questioning with the fact she asked Trump’s other picks the same questions.
But to ask Amy if she ever committed sexual assault in front of the nation and her 7 children is a total disgrace.
“I asked each nominee these two questions, and I will ask them of you,” said Hirono. “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?”
“No, Senator Hirono,” Barrett said.
“Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?” Hirono asked.
“No, senator,” Barrett replied again.
“I don’t think it’s any secret to any of you or to the American people that this is a really difficult, some might say excruciating, process,” Barrett said earlier almost predicting the nonsense from Hirono.
“And Jesse and I had a very brief amount of time to make a decision with momentous consequences for our family.”
“We knew that our lives would be combed over for any negative detail, we knew that our face would be a caricature and we knew our family would be attacked.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who Mazie Hirono called "our champion" on Monday, used the term "sexual preference" in 2017. Hirono jumped on Amy Coney Barrett for saying it Tuesday, calling it "offensive and outdated." pic.twitter.com/8bHIQTSVFk https://t.co/JlcRA35g59
