Hint Men…your time is up. At least as far as Senator Hirono thinks. Gee, what’s left to divide us? Tucker Carlson last night presented a masterful response worthy of a look.
I scouted around to see what my fav gal Mika Brzezinski had to say on the matter. Lucky us.
I did find a clip: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said she isn’t sure if all women should be believed, and noted that one of Sen. Al Franken’s accusers is a Trump supporter. (Boy howdy that will do it!!!) That was Circa 2017. Time sure makes a difference!
Now on to Hirono:
Asked whether her being one of four women on the Senate Judiciary Committee impacts the Brett Kavanaugh proceedings, Senator Mazie Hirono says, “I just want to say to the men of this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”
SEN. MAZIE HIRONO (D-HI): I think we all know when something is not fair, when something smells. This is so patently not fair to her and what really bothers me and gets me so angry that the White House is victimizing this person.
Why don’t we get that out there? Why should we participate in the victimization of someone who has the courage to come forward?
And she is under no obligation to participate in a smearing of her and her family. That is why I am very clear about what needs to happen.
But at the same time if the Republicans go forward with their plan to railroad this fast-track as they have so many other nominations, I expect the members of the press to talk about how unfair that is. I don’t think that is editorializing, that is laying out the facts. I expect that from you guys…
HIRONO: I expect the men in this country and the men in this committee because we all signed on to this letter to demand an FBI investigation. But really guess who is perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country. And I just want to say to the men in this country: just shut up and step up, do the right thing for a change.
Tucker: The left think all men are guilty
For a time, it seemed like we’d moved past corrosive identity politics. Now it’s back in force.
Now on to Mika from 2017 better known as who stated: Mika Brzezinski said “My parents found me very difficult to educate fame.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said she isn’t sure if all women should be believed, and noted that one of Sen. Al Franken’s accusers is a Trump supporter.
Friday’s “Morning Joe” crew was discussing Franken’s resignation over a sexual harassment scandal, and Brzezinski argued that there may be some “politics” at play with his first accuser, Leeann Tweeden.
“We’ve never really talked about the woman who first came out against Al Franken,” Brzezinski said. “[She is] a performer, Playboy model who goes on Hannity.
Who voted for Trump.” — “You know, I see some politics there but I haven’t brought that up every step of the way because, of course, in this #MeToo environment, you must always just believe the women,” she explained. “I think there’s a lot of reasons why we need to look at the women seriously and believe them.”
Brzezinski asserted that she believes the accusers of her friend Mark Halperin, but wondered if it is always right to believe the women that accuse men of sexual misconduct. “I’m just wondering if all women need to be believed,” she explained, “and I am concerned that we are being the judge, the jury, and the cops here, and so did Senate Democrats getting ahead of their skis.”
