Dem Senator Won’t Denounce Harassment

Sen. Mazie Hirono won’t say whether harassing senators out in public is going too far. The Hawaii Democrat on Sunday refused to answer a question on CNN probing whether she thinks what happened to Sen. Ted Cruz—who was mobbed out of a restaurant during the heat of the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh—is overdoing it by protesters. She dodged the question, but host Dana Bash kept trying to pin her down. Eventually she basically said Republicans are fair targets because…white supremacy.

—QUOTABLE: “You look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country, a tremendous divisiveness in our country…This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions. If they violate the law, then they have to account for that.” -Hirono on CNN’s “State of the Union”
