Democrat Senator Hirono: Conservative Bias On Social Media Is 'Completely Baseless'
Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono is either very good at playing dumb, or just plain ignorant. Probably both, though. She’s not a Senator, so much as a left-wing entertainer – just like 99% of her colleagues.
How dare she say something like this? It’s incredible how low these people will go.
From The Daily Wire:
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) — who is ranked as one of the most partisan and far-left members of the U.S. Senate — claimed on Tuesday that social media bias against conservative users does not exist as she complained that publications like Fox News and The Daily Wire perform too well on the platform.
“Mr. Zuckerberg, for the second time in three weeks, you’ve been called before the Senate Committee so my Republican colleagues can beat you up over claims that your platforms are supposedly biased against conservatives. The fact of the matter is that these allegations are completely baseless.”

Not long ago, when asked by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to denounce Antifa, Mazie refused. She even took things a step further and walked out of the hearing.
From Fox News:
Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz‘s rhetorical speeches any longer.
The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

Also not long ago, Hirono made a vile comment about Trump supporters.
