Lindsey Graham Fires Back At Sexist Mazie Hirono: “I Will Not Shut Up”

Published

A Republican Senator from South Carolina fired back after one of his Democrat colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee made blatantly sexist, misandrist remarks twice in the past two weeks.

“I know I’m a single white male from South Carolina, and I’m told I should shut up, but I will not shut up, if that’s okay,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) at Friday’s Committee hearing to proceed with a Senate floor vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Less than two weeks ago, while Kavanaugh’s name was being smeared by baseless, unprovable sexual misconduct claims, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) told men to “do the right thing for a change” and “shut up.”

“Guess who’s perpetuating these kinds of actions,” she said. “It’s the men of this country. “I just want to say to the men in this country – just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

Graham made it perfectly clear last week that he is finished with the political left’s ridiculous antics.

Normally mild-mannered and generally known as a moderate, he won over many Republicans this week, including this reporter, after he let loose on the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee during Kavanaugh’s Thursday testimony, calling the process “the most unethical sham since [he’s] been in politics.”

Throwing shade at misandrists will only score him more points with sane people who recognize that sexism is wrong, regardless of which gender is promoting it.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
