Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) blasted President Donald Trump, calling him a “misogynist” who “can’t handle strong women" during a Friday's MSNBC edition of “The ReidOut."

Host Joy Reid asked Hirono:

“What do you make of the ways in which — the contrast between the ways in which Donald Trump is talking about women, just this week, suburban housewives and what Joe Biden was able to do with his pick of Senator Harris?”

Hirono responded:

“The president continues to show all of us what a misogynist he is, from the very beginning, and continues to attack strong women."

"He can’t handle strong women," Hirono claimed.

"He’s called me nasty and vicious. That’s what he does," she added.

"In contrast, Joe Biden's pick of Kamala Harris is not just historic but acknowledgment of the leadership qualities, intelligence, and skills she brings to the table," Hirono continued.

"Strong theme for them, supporting families and women," she said.

"Versus what Donald Trump is doing.”


Last month, Hirono accused supporters of President Donald Trump of being “white supremacists."

Hirono accused Trump's base of being "anti-immigrant," arguing the country needs to be dealing with "systemic racism."

“We now have three crises that we’re having to deal with, and it’s a pandemic, we have an economic crisis, we have police brutality and systemic racism crisis,” Hirono said.

“And so what’s happening is that really covering for the president and his failures is the operating principle for his enablers," she added.

“And we should be dealing with the racism that is in our country to which the president speaks to because he has a base of supporters who are very anti-immigrant and white supremacists,” Hirono said.


But Hirono's claims were predictably left unchallenged by MSNBC host Chris Jansing.
