Trump knocks ‘crazy female senator’ for comments on men

President Trump called Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) a “crazy female senator” for her support for the “Green New Deal” and comments on men in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday.

“The crazy female senator from the state of Ohio,” he said, before correcting to Hawaii. “She’s like a crazed person. What she said about men is so bad.”

He said that when asked about whether she supports the Green New Deal, she responded “Well, I don’t know how people are going to get to Hawaii, but I’m in favor of the plan.”

“I don’t get it.” Trump added.

Hirono said in September that men in the country should “shut up and step up” while referring to the way Republicans were handling the sexual assault allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. 

“Guess who is perpetrating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” Hirono said, according to The Washington Post. “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing, for a change.” 

Hirono is also a co-sponsor of the Senate resolution in favor of the Green New Deal. 

CPAC is an annual gathering of conservatives that features prominent speakers.
