As Twitchy told you earlier, Nancy Pelosi kicked a liberal hornet’s nest when she mocked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal as “the green dream or whatever they call it.” But we’ve got good news for her: It looks like she won’t have to shoulder all the backlash herself.
Because Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono doesn’t seem super-impressed by the Green New Deal, either:

“That would be pretty hard for Hawaii”

That’s a polite way of saying, “No way in hell would I be caught dead endorsing this stupid proposal now.”
Are we calling her a climate denier yet?

Ask her why she hates the environment.

What’s it gonna take for Hirono to see the light?
Maybe the plan also includes a bridge to Hawaii with a high speed solar powered train?

IT'S CALLED A REALLY LONG BRIDGE, MAZIE

In all honesty, though, Hirono is right. Unless she wants to stop Hawaii’s economy dead in its tracks, she can’t endorse the Green New Deal.
TBH, a rare glimmer of intelligent thought from Hirono.

That's the smartest thing she's ever said!

Damn, when even Crazy Mazie thinks your ideas are impractical…

LOL, even Hirono is crapping on the Green New Deal fantasy. https://t.co/eXO42Wjzky

And honestly, we can’t blame her. Not this time, anyway.
