Monday on MSNBC, Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) claimed Trump supporters are “white supremacists”.

The Democratic Senator made the remark as she told the MSNBC host “we should be dealing with the racism in our country to which the president speaks to” amid the protests and riots that occurred after the death of George Floyd.

Senator Hirono went on to allege: “[President Trump] has a base of supporters who are very anti-immigrant and white supremacists . That’s who– that’s a lot of his base. That’s who he speaks to, so the divisiveness continues.”

In February after President Trump was acquitted, Senator Hirono also claimed on CNN that the president is a “petty, vindictive, spoiled brat” and that he was not acquitted because it was a “rigged trial,” however, Wolf Blitzer corrected her, telling the Hawaiian Senator that the Senate has “clearly spoken now” and President Trump was acquitted.

Last year during a Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, while critiquing Democratic environmental policies, President Donald Trump dubbed Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono “nasty, nasty, horrible” and “not the smartest person on the planet.”

He has also referred to her  as a “crazy female senator” and “like a crazed person.”
