‘This Is What Happens’: Sen. Hirono Brushes off Protesters Harassing Senators over Kavanaugh Vote

With many protesters having swarmed Capitol Hill to show their opposition to the nomination and then confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, there were multiple instances where the protesters harassed and confronted Republican senators.

In response to some of the protesters’ actions, which President Donald Trump described as an “angry mob,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) didn’t seem concerned about the confrontations.

“I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about what is going on. Because hat happened with Judge Kavanaugh from the very beginning, this is not a fair process,” Hirono said on CNN.

When asked if chasing members of Congress out of restaurants was going too far, Hirono pointed to white supremacists.

This is what happens because when you look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country. There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country.

“This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions. If they violate the law, then they have to account for that,” she added.

Watch the video below:

In one case, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife, Heidi, were surrounded and chased out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant by anti-Kavanaugh protesters.

In a statementthe restaurant, Fiola, said the Cruz family was able to return and finish their meal in peace after the protesters left the establishment. 

“Chef Fabio believes politics — like elbows — are best left off the dining table and we welcome everyone’s.”

    • Some bit of education would really be good for you. Probably won’t help you but at least you would know why you are wrong and why people know so.
      Listening to people who tell you what you should think and then thinking it is a poor reflection on anyone. Be better
