Video: Childish Mazie Hirono Votes ‘Hell No’ on ACB, Gives Thumbs-Down Gesture Before Stomping Off Senate Floor

On Monday, the United States Senate voted 52 – 48 to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.  Of course, every Democrat voted against her, but one — Mazie Hirono of Hawaii — caught the eye of a number of people on social media when she voted, “hell, no” while giving a thumbs-down gesture as if she were a member of the Roman Senate.

Video of her childish and petulant temper tantrum was captured and spread to social media:

After she cast her vote, she stormed off the Senate floor like a little child who was just told she can’t have another cookie.

The Blaze noted:

Hirono was among the Democrats who questioned whether Barrett could be fair in her Supreme Court decisions given that she is so devoted to her Catholic faith. Others accused Hirono of religious bigotry over the suggestion.

“Look, it wasn’t her religious views — it’s anybody’s views that they bring to their decision-making,” Hirono said last month about Barrett’s faith.

“So they keep telling us that none of the things they wrote or said yesterday should infringe on their decision, but how can we be assured that they can be objective?” she added. “Why should we say you get a lifetime appointment so that you can reflect your ideological agenda in your decision-making?”

One person wryly noted:

Another person responded:

There’s a lot of truth in that one little tweet…

In another dig at the Democrats, Justice Clarence Thomas administered the Constitutional oath to Barrett in front of about 200 people on the South Lawn of the White House.  Chief Justice John Roberts is set to administer the Judicial Oath on Tuesday, allowing her to sit on the Court.

“One thing’s for sure,” Twitchy said, “the next seven days are going to be interesting to say the least.”

No doubt…
