Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, believes Democrats are apparently too smart for voters in America.
During an event on Tuesday night at the “Bend Towards Justice” conference in Washington, D.C., Hirono argued that Democrats struggle “connecting” with voters because of “how smart” they are.
“I wish I had the answer to that because one of the things that we Democrats have a really hard time is connecting to people’s hearts instead of here. We’re really good are showing all the information that touch people here but not here,” Hirono said.
Then, without a hint of self-awareness, Hirono said she’s been warning her Democratic colleagues on their fancy retreats that they need to find ways to connect with regular Americans.
“And I have been saying in all of our Senate Democratic retreats that we need to speak to the heart, not in a manipulative way, not in a way that brings forth everybody’s fears and resentments, but truly to speak to the hearts, so that people know that we’re actually on their side,” she added.
“We have a really hard time doing that and one of the reasons that was [inaudible] to me know at one of our retreats was that we Democrats know so much, that is true. And we have to kind of tell everybody how smart we are, and so we have a tendency to be very left brain and we think of this, really? That is not how people make decisions,” Hirono said.
Hirono insulting Americans while boasting about how smart she believes Democrats are won’t surprise many given her long history of making despicable comments.
In October, Hirono refused to condemn far-left activists who ran Republicans senators out of restaurants and went to their homes to protest them.
“I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about what is going on,” she said.
Around that same time, Hirono got busted sending out fundraising emails to her supporters less than 30 minutes into the opening remarks of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing with Christine Blasey Ford.
Hirono wrote in the desperate email that she has been “fighting the Republicans who are desperate to rush Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and deny a fair investigation into credible sexual misconduct allegations against him.”
Hirono sent out another email claiming an “error” was responsible for her begging supporters for money when the hearing began.
In September, Hirono accidentally admitted that Democrats had a two-year plan to keep President Donald Trump from filing the vacant seat on the Supreme Court.
The Hawaii Democrat revealed that if then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation was derailed, Democrats would oppose any attempt to fill the vacancy until after the 2020 presidential election.
And, most notably, she said men need to “just shut up” because all women must be believed.
