Dem Sen. Mazie Hirono: I Don't Care About Trump's Pesky Little Constitutional Defense

There’s a constant battle going on in the Senate for who is the most vapid member. More often than not, Mazie Hirono seems to come out on top. How someone of her inability ever made it to such a high elected office is proof of the power of political parties. There’s just no way she gained her position via dogged work and intellect.

For example, here’s Hirono pronouncing that constitutional citations against impeachment are not worth her time.

This is probably a good sign that the Democrats have lost the argument. To dismiss constitutional arguments as “stupid” and “little” while at the same time proclaiming oneself to be following said constitution makes no sense on any level.

Yet, Hirono is so eaten up with partisanship and wanting to simply “get Trump” that she’s literally willing to handwave away the document that forms the basis of our government system. Not a good look at all, but one that’s become more and more common.

Republicans managed to not go this insane during the Obama years, despite numerous impeachable offenses taking place. The left can’t help themselves though.
