It’s good to know that Senator Mazie Hirono is asking the important questions of Barr today … and yes, we are being completely sarcastic. After the crap she, Dianne Feinstein, and Kamala Harris tried to pull with Brett Kavanaugh, we suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that her line of questioning went here but man, this is just so tired.

And some people think this is a good thing?
Sen. @maziehirono continues to ask all nominees, under oath, about whether or not they have a history of sexual assault or harassment.

Thank you, senator, for being a huge sexist and making a mockery of those who have actually been sexually harassed or assaulted so you can push your narrative and pretend you’re fighting for women or something.
This seems just sorta weird and creepy if you think about it.
Sen. Mazie Hirono: "I ask these questions of every nominee who comes before [my committees]…Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors, or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?"#Barr: "No."

Is @maziehirono asking women if they have a history of sexual assault or harassment as a blanket question without cause/evidence as well?
If not @senjudiciary should consider this discrimination based on sex and sexual harassment.
Candidates should not be harassed due to sex. https://t.co/y0Vat6ssXd

What he said.
If she thought this was so damned important she should demand the names of every member of Congress that has paid out tax money regarding this.

We wouldn’t be opposed to that.
There's something wrong with her.

By the way, Barr said no, he has never committed sexual assault or harassment.
Sen. Mazie Hirono asks every single person up for confirmation in front of her committee if they have ever been accused of sexual harassment or assault. Barr said no.

And yes, everything is still stupid, in case you were wondering.
