Hawaii Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono on Sunday refused twice to answer whether she thought harassing Republican senators in restaurants was taking things a bit too far.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Hirono responded to the question posed by guest host Dana Bash.
Bash began the segment by drawing a clear line between peaceful protest and what amounts to harassment.
“The president, Republicans are saying Democratic protesters are, quote, ‘an angry mob,’” she explained. “What I want to ask you about, it is one thing to protest the Supreme Court at the capitol. That’s been done for generations and frankly since the founding of this country. It’s another thing to run senators out of restaurants and go to their homes. Is that going too far?”
Hirono dodged the question, instead going back to the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
