You know it’s time to seek professional help when you, as a Democrat, are being corrected live on air by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer for your blatantly untrue propaganda. The network that proudly claims the Fake News crown wouldn’t detect a Democrat lie if it came right up and bit them on the nose, but that’s pretty much what happened on Thursday. That was when Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told Blitzer that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually acquitted because…well, because of reasons that make no sense.
“The Senate has clearly spoken now,” said Blitzer. “The president was acquitted.”
“No, Wolf,” said Hirono. “He wasn’t acquitted. It was a rigged trial. You don’t get acquitted when you don’t even get to call witnesses or relevant witnesses or have the documents because the president stonewalled all efforts on the part of the House to get the information they requested. So there you go. It was a rigged trial. He can run around saying he was acquitted, but you don’t get acquitted in a rigged trial.”
Yeah, Wolf! We weren’t allowed the turn the trial into a circus, so this acquittal doesn’t actually count!
Blitzer wasn’t having it.
“There was a roll call – guilty or not guilty – and not guilty was the majority,” Blitzer dryly noted. “And the Chief Justice of the United States announced that he was acquitted, that he was not guilty.”
Those simple facts did not penetrate Hirono’s thick skull.
“But the American public knows that it was a rigged trial, so OK, you’re found not guilty in a rigged trial. I don’t think that they think that this was all kosher. No, it wasn’t,” Hirono said. “So meanwhile, you have the president crowing about it, which is totally expected and now it’s anything goes for this president and this administration.”
Imagine being an elected representative with the mentality of a spoiled child. How did Hawaii Democrats get it so right with Tulsi while blowing it so badly with Hirono?
Twitter was merciless:
“You know who I go to for high level analysis? Sen. Mazie Hirono. Apparently Trump wasn’t acquitted and she definitely doesn’t suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome,” tweeted KTTH Radio’s Jason Rantz.
“Hirono is the poster child for why voting out stupid is needed. Unless of course the people of Hawaii are really proud of this running joke of a representative,” wrote Nate G.
And user Joeyboy simply said: “OMG, this is a United States senator.”
Well, maybe if Hawaii gets it’s act together, that won’t be the case for much longer. We can hope.
