Watch: MSNBC host calls out Sen Hirono for trying to have it BOTH WAYS on Green New Deal

The despicable Senator Hirono from Hawaii was on MSNBC trying to explain why Democrats refused to vote for the Green New Deal.

Of course she called the vote by McConnell a sham and said Democrats didn’t want to participate.

But then something happened that I wasn’t expecting.

MSNBC Katy Tur challenges Hirono, accusing her of trying to appear to support the bill without having to suffer for it politically.



Watch:

I love it.

Hirono makes the argument to support the Green New Deal and then Tur flips it right back on her and asks why not vote for it anyway if she believes in it:

But isn’t that an argument that you just made to vote ‘yes’ for it. I mean McConnell may be trying to make it a show vote… You’ve signed onto this, you’re one of the co-authors of it. If you believe that this is something – even if it’s aspirational – that needs to get done, why not take a stand and vote YES for it, [saying] ‘here’s where the Democrats stand on it’ and ‘we don’t don’t care that it’s a show vote from Leader McConnell.’

It seems like you’re trying to have it both ways – not be hung by it politically but also NOT say that you don’t support it.

Wow, great point. I’m kinda surprised she made it.

Yet Hirono was undeterred and just went back to jibber-jabbering about how it’s a shame and McConnell’s trying to divide Democrats.

Blah blah blah.

There’s only so far you can bend suspension of disbelief before it snaps. Movie directors know this well. You bend it, and you can keep the audience engaged in whatever you’re trying to show them. You snap it, and they’ll remove themselves from the story and head back toward reality.

You don’t want the latter, when you’re a storyteller.

And since Global Climate Whatever is effectively an effort at storytelling…

When you think of all the wonderful, intelligent, honest and competent women who could be on television it’s sad to see these two polluting the airwaves.

It’s the worst possible indictment of Katy Tur that one lonely moment of behaving like an unbiased “reporter” causes such surprise.

Personally I think Mazie is crazy. But I think the real reason for her voting “no” on the bill was that she does not want to have to take that old slow train home to Hawaii. She is, after all very impotent.

I go to Hawaii at least once a year. Their politics over there are ridiculous. I was buying a nice shirt at a nice store last time I was there and was chastised for wanting a bag to hold my shirt. Then I said, “I guess I shouldn’t ask for a straw in my drink either?”. The clerk then said “Unless you don’t care about sea turtles either”. So, I gave her the shirt back and walked out. Not an isolated incident. Those folks over there are nuts.

I’m surprised to see MSNBC sock puppet, Tur actually ask a viable journalistic question of a verifiable liberal lunatic. Then again, Tur could ask that question of every democrat in Congress that professed to support the GND.

Hirono’s accusing the republicans of trying to divide the democrats is comedy gold. Obviously Hirono has a serious lack of self awareness and a sense of reality.

It’s only going to get worse for democrats once the IG,Clinton Crime foundation, U1, National voter fraud and Declas are released not to mention the pedophilia and child sex trafficking that many on both sides of the aisle are involved in.

I think that the whole GND is a “testing the waters” piece of bait to see how ready the electorate is ready for full on socialism. The Dems won back the House (barely and with more than a lot of chicanery) and now think that shows them that the tide has turned against the President when it didn’t show that at all in my opinion. I think that they threw out the GND just to see where they stood in their quest to turn the US into Venezuela. If it had been greeted with great enthusiasm and support then they’d know that the tide was turning in their favor because America had been sufficiently indoctrinated. But it has been greeted with derision and scoffing by almost everyone except the extreme left deluded earth-worshippers. Hirono sees the writing on the wall from this test. She wanted the fame, power and credit… Read more »

We’re always so pleasantly and gratefully surprised to see even a basic level of honesty and critical thought from outlets like MSNBC and CNN.

Imagine a world where the media regularly was that way. We’d be a whole lot better off than with the mess we have today.

The whole point of creating a bill is to get it voted on. That’s what happened here, A horrible bill (like most bills) was brought up for a vote. That’s the goal of a bill. Get created and voted on. Then the democrats complain when they vote on the bill. They spout there was no debate. Debate? You’ve been claiming the science is settled and there is no debate for over a decade! Now you want a debate?

Hirono looks like she’s wearing a mask or is maybe botox’d up or something. Guilty?

ALL politicians pull this crap – we know this. But man, democrats really seem to do it more often and are absolutely, blatantly hypocritical about it. Hirono (in this case) had the opportunity to stick to her convictions and her BS and vote “yes” to something she claims to believe in but she didn’t because she might have to suffer for it politically.

And that’s they key here isn’t it? They KNOW the GND is BS or at least a severe governmental overreach and they don’t want to go on record as supporting it – just pay lip-service. I commend Joe Manchin (the ONLY reasonable democrat imo) and his three colleagues for actually voting their convictions (even though those votes were likely political too). I also commend the deplorable Katy Tur for rightfully calling out Hirono.

It would be great if politicians stood for what they believe. Even if we disagreed with them they’d earn some respect for it. Problem is they don’t believe anything say because they keep changing what they say to keep the power grab going.

As one who has family in Hawaii I can attest to the fact that even though she may not be the best they can do, she certainly is representative of a broad cross section of the Hawaiian populous. Their schools are a joke and “barely literate” accurately describes a good portion of the folks who live there.

What you witnessed wasn’t Katy Tur calling out the Hawaiian ding bat, what you saw was Katy Tur serving up a leading question, with the pretense of objectivity, so that the aforementioned ding bat could continue pontificating. If she was really calling her out, and if she really was objective, she would have noted that the real sham was the legislative bill the Democrats never had any intention of debating about much less voting on.

Wow, I am shocked! An intelligent question on MSNBC. I actually wondered the same thing, if the socialist communist called democrats are so proud of the green deal scam, then why didn’t they proudly vote yes. Of course that is what most politicians do, they want it both ways so they can attempt to scam both sides of the issues. facepalmd
