Viral 'Such Bulls--t': Dem Sen. Hirono Blasts Trump, Says He Can't Blame Dems for Shutdown
Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono blasted President Trump and Republicans for the impending partial government shutdown, swearing during a live interview on Thursday night.
Hirono, an Oahu Democrat, said the Senate "did the responsible thing" by passing a continuing resolution to fund the government the previous night. However, that resolution lacked the wall funding demanded by Trump.
"President Trump [got] all worked up because he's got some right-wing, loud people yelling at him," Hirono said, adding that pressure from Trump's base caused him to reconsider signing anything that did not have the $5 billion appropriation for the border wall.
"He will bring on the shutdown and he has to take responsibility for it," she said. "Any effort on his part to blame the Democrats will be such bulls--t [that] I would hardly be able to stand it," she said.
Chris Stirewalt said the passage of any funding bill at this point is a "game of hot potato."
Stirewalt said both congressional chambers are trying to toss a resolution between each other and see who ends up with the blame when the clock runs out at 11:59 pm ET on Friday.
