WATCH: Senator Mazie Hirono Says ‘Any Effort on His Part to Blame Democrats Will Be Such B****S***…I Will Hardly Be Able to Stand It’

Relatable.

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) did not mince words while discussing President Donald Trump’s potential plan to shut down the government over funding for his proposed border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“It is very true that he will bring on the shutdown, and he has to take responsibility for it,” Hirono said. “Any effort on his part to blame the Democrats will be such bullshit that, as I said before, I would hardly be able to stand it.”

Hirono, one of Trump’s harsher critics, spoke a day after the president opted not to sign a stopgap funding bill approved by the Senate, increasing the risk of a partial government shutdown.

Foul language or not, many agreed with Hirono’s assessment.

Hirono has employed similar language before. In September, she had harsh words for the Senate Judiciary Committee’s handling of the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“I would like us to come together and figure out what is the best way to proceed,” Hirono told ABC News at the time, referring to a letter Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent to Senate Democrats about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the Stanford University professor who accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her during a high school party in the early 1980s.

“Not this seat-of-the-pants stuff,” Hirono added. “The latest, being a letter from the chairman to the Democrats saying, ‘We have done everything we can to contact her.’ That is such bullshit, I can’t hardly stand it.”
