Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) has had enough of the ongoing sexual assault allegation against men in power. The latest man being taken down is Supreme Court justice nominee Bret Kavanaugh who was accused of committing sexual assault.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor in California accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault while the two were in high school.
While talking to reporters Hirono challenged the men in this country to just “shut up and stet up.”
“Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions?” Hirono asked. “It’s the men in this country. I just want to say to the men in this country, just shut up! And step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

Economist mocks GOP for trying to pin racism on Democrats — after telling a harrowing story about anti-black economic envy
Economist Julianne Malveaux explained to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that there was a time in the United States where black Americans were actually closing the wealth gap with white Americans -- until white Americans rioted and burned their property.
During her testimony at a hearing on reparations, Malveaux recounted the horrific story of the destruction of "Black Wall Street," which was a location in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was known for its high concentration of black-owned businesses and black wealth.
The area's prosperity came to an end in 1921 when white Tulsa residents used baseless accusation of a black man sexually assaulting a white woman as a justification to chase out all black residents and set fire to their neighborhoods. Hundreds of black residents were killed in the riots and the majority fled the city.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle unloads on Democrats for letting Hope Hicks testify behind closed doors
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle questioned the purpose of Wednesday’s hearing with former White House director of communications Hope Hicks.
Hope Hicks testified Wednesday during a closed-door hearing before the House Judiciary Committee -- where she reportedly refused to answer many questions.
“Let’s be honest, why did Democrats think this was a huge break? Why did they think that Hope Hicks was going to sing like a bird?” Ruhle asked MSNBC national security analyst Ken Dilanian.
Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is familiar: Troll the libs!
Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.
