Fox News host Tucker Carlson doesn’t seem to believe Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono is too bright.
Carlson mocked Hirono for her public criticism of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett using the phrase “sexual preference,” which the Democratic senator said was “offensive” to the LGBTQ community.
“So the world is falling apart. China is taking over the world. The American economy is in shambles. And there’s a presidential election in three weeks,” Carlson said Wednesday. “But luckily, America’s dumbest senator, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, is upset about the right things — the term ‘sexual preference.’ It’s a slur. As it turns out, she didn’t know that herself until some left-wing Twitter personality made that discovery yesterday morning.”
Carlson then showed images of the Merriam-Webster dictionary updating its definition of “preference” following Hirono’s remarks to label “sexual preference” as an offensive term. He also showed clips of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg using the term.
