Democratic Senator: Ron DeSantis’ ‘monkey’ comments are ‘not a dog whistle but a bullhorn’

Published

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said that Rep. Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) “monkey up” comments showed his level of incompetence.

“It was a conscious choice of words. It is not just a dog whistle, it is a bullhorn,” she said. “Congressman DeSantis should apologize. When people speak that way, they are really speaking from where they are coming from. And to the extent that this nominee is very close to Donald Trump, I would say that birds of a feather flock together.”

All 47 Democrats in the Senate voted in favor of the subpoenas, while all 53 Republicans opposed.

What did Ukraine know and when did they know it? Trump lawyer tells another whopper at Senate trial

President Donald Trump's legal team played fast and loose with the truth on the first day of the impeachment trial, at one point claiming falsely that no Republicans were allowed into the classified information facilities during the House impeachment proceedings.

Michael Purpura one of the president's lawyers, lied again later that evening, claiming the Ukrainians had no knowledge that the Trump administration froze military aid at the time Trump pressed President Volodymyr Zelensky to announce an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden's family.
