  1. Democrats are looking out for the interests of American people! Vote!

    • @Wisconsin Man You also got your facts wrong! How are illegal immigrants put above citizens? They don’t even have proper documentation to be in a credit system! Can’t get insurance, can’t get tax refunds, and can’t get health insurance. But every purchase they make we charge them taxes just as well, we tend to them at hospitals and they have to paid cash or fear of deportation, and in order to someday get their proper documents they complete their tax returns, but get no refunds. It’s not everybody that does this properly, but the vast majority that cares about making a life for themselves and their children do. You should know some real facts before you insult people man. Obama’s administration deported more illegal immigrants and didn’t break families apart in the way Trump has, so don’t write stuff that you clearly have no knowledge about please.

    • Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

      @Mike Perez that’s a lie… Dem put their party first, especially in the Supreme Court. Don’t be naïve, Repubs when it comes to voting, can flip both ways.

    • @Bucky Pinata okay Karen 🙄

  2. You go girl. Proud that she is from Hawaii.

      @Tyler Micha Shut up you far right hypocritical nut job. Law and order still exist I know if I saw a militia I’d not hesitate to call the police or report suspicious activity.

    • @MegaPowerBattleShip far right lmao. Who brought up a militia. Are you talking about Antifa and BLM causing chaos now for 130 days.. 😂

    • @MegaPowerBattleShip Yes law and order still exists but not for Antifa and BLM. Also we now have Clinton’s emails so lots of people will be going down. 😀

    • @MegaPowerBattleShip did you hear Biden only had 12 people at his rally in Pennsylvania LOL, he’s ahead in the polls though right. 😂😂😂 oh Biden also had 8 people show up to his Arizona rally. Lmao, you guys are done.


  5. Unfortunately this as with all attempts to enlist compassionate results will fall on deaf ears because there is one thing republicans are unable to be and that is shamed. They don’t mind killing just not fetuses. That is the only way they have to be able to control a women’s body is by pretending to be pro life.

    • @Tootsie Troll Well lots of people had to find healthcare when Obama care became law.

    • @Kathleen Flacy It was placenta stem cells, not fetal tissue stem cells….not the same. The placenta has stem cells from maternal and infant tissue combined. You can google it if not sure.

    • There are the coldest snakes ever… but they threw their hat in the ring with Donald just so they can get something like this done

      #Despicable 😑

    • @Paul Wilson have you ever stumbled across a fetus… I have and it’s not pretty

      People are going to get abortions for the alike it or not Babel Babel Babel all you want you’re not going to change anything you’re just going to make the world an uglier place for it

    • @Big Boomer Trump 2020

  6. Wow she flipped that argument on her counterparts so well. I don’t doubt their concern for her but they know her, they don’t know the American people so they don’t carry the same concern or as she said, “shared humanity”.

    • Shared humanity? The emotional justifications regarding issues are out of control..Why dont you just adopt a family and pay for their healthcare and start a possible growing trend to show us the example you’re talking about..instead of telling people what they need to do and how to spend the money that they earned..
      Do you even see how crazy your Philosophy is?

    • Hirono has no shared humanity for conservatives. She stormed out of the Senate hearing on Antifa/BLM violence. Two conservatives have since been shot dead by Antifa/BLM activists. Another BLM organizer has been charged with attempted murder for plowing into a crowd of Trump supporters sending 2 to the hospital, one with two broken legs.

    • @Jinx Mim was this before that man ran threw a crowd with his car in the south and the president call him a fine person or more recently when a militia groups plan was foiled to kidnap the Michigan governor. Humility starts at the top and when the president himself acts like a two year old child this woman’s speech was incredible. She carried herself grace even while speaking of such a painful part of her own life. So before u change to the topic and bring up antifa, blm check ur representatives who they themselves promote hate and violence…. Vote2020

    • ​@Ms. Santana Do you know you are lying or are you to stupid to know you are lying? Or just to bigoted. Trump did not call the murderer a fine person or any of the neo-nazi’s that showed up in Charlottesville fine people. The nazi’s on the left however were defended by Hirono. The Antifa/BLM nazi’s get bailed out with funds raised by Democrats. They are the new KKK. You do NOT have the moral high ground.

    • Jinx Mim BOT

  7. NEVER, NEVER EVER FORGET – The Trump Propaganda Playbook is all too simple – “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth” – Joseph Goebbels

    • Neck Beard
      the SOS from a fake account clone for the 100th time

    • @joyice chase More Hypothetical “facts” from you people on the left. “What unclassified documents, the Mueller report”? Really? You were in a coma from when the Mueller report finished u until today? You know what documents, what notes, if you don’t then that proves you have ZERO critical thinking and tries to confirm certain claims. Instead you flip on FAKE NEWS and thats it. Who gives a flying…. about taxes, oh yeah you people, for some reason. if you were really concerned about someone being a criminal, which for your info, taxes would not show that. WOW, anyway, if you were concerned you would want to see every person in DC’s taxes. But you don’t, just Trumps. Which again there is a 3 letter word that does not apply and you people can never accept, it’s called the LAW. No LAW says he has to, I wouldn’t either. He has financial disclosures for anyone to see.

    • @Neck Beard HAHAHAHAHAHA either you DO work for fake news or you should. That was some good non factual BS. If you really wanted to compare Nazi Germany, then do so with the Dems, it’s like a mirror affect.

    • Zebra Zagadore | October 12, 2020 at 5:35 PM | Reply

      @Bucky Pinata 20,000+ lies and counting. Oh right, fact checked and documented by fake news. Therefore doesn’t count. Trumpsters have such dark blinders on they wouldn’t recognize the truth if they were drowning in it.

    • Which is exactly what the left does. It’s in the liberal mantra way back in 33. but you’re too closed minded to find out the truth.

  8. Republicans: you mean millions will suffer?! Push her right in!

    Well said Senator Hirono, thank you and stay well

  10. As a Democrat who loved Obama, I have to say he got guilt tripped by Republicans he was trying to play nice with….a psychological trick that led him to pass on nominating Merrick Garland when he had every legal right. The Dems just haven’t been tough enough. Toughen up. Don’t lose sight that this is our lives at stake!

  11. Prayers for Senator Hirono.

    Wow! I had no idea Sen. Maize went through all of that.. Strong woman for sure. This nomination is the reason why there is and ALWAYS should be the separation of Church and State just like the Bible says it should be that these people have so much faith in..

  13. If you read the Inc report, right wingers are actively in favor of suppressing the poor to protect rich upper class, in favor of strongman dictator who’s specific agenda is to suppress the traditionally oppressed class. It’s reality

  14. Republican Senate, with world class health coverage for life, are fighting tooth and nail to make sure you die of treatable illnesses.

      You really think because some have a D or R in front of their name makes at all a difference in the way politicians view us? What a lovely fantasy land you live in.

    • @Twoofer Derper some of our congressmen and women actually care…. Some individuals don’t care there’s right and wrong there’s good abd evil.. The Republicans ride the fence they’re hypocrites;

    • Yes, and Republican voters who depend on Obamacare are voting for them on that basis.
      You can’t fix that…..

    • James Williams | October 12, 2020 at 9:52 PM | Reply

      @Twoofer Derper yeah it matters this election, I guess you have no one that depends on health care good for you.

  15. Vote for the Democratic Party up and down the ballot as if your life depends on it, because it does.

  16. Americans sure are facing a tough decision: a party that wants to help them – or one that brazenly wishes evil upon them. To make matters worse, they’ve only had to endure 7 months of neglect during a pandemic and have only had 4 years to mull over their options. I expect many of them will need a bit longer to feel confident about which way they would like to vote – even if this is their last chance to participate in a proper election.

      This is Trump’s only agenda:
      PLEASE READ my latest investigation report – on this channel (“Conflict of Interest at its Historical Record”) on how Trump rebuilt his BUSINESS EMPIRE by illegally misusing presidential powers, which would not be possible without GOP senators and self-appointed AGs!
      (PDF FORMAT of the report is liked in the ‘comments section’ of the video report)
      Kindly SHARE & SUBSCRIBE
      (There are more of my investigation reports on Trump’s corruption and conspiracies on my channel)

    • @Jeff Woods because Americans need the rest of the world

    • @Kim Jodoin yes we do..to make money

    • Investigative Audit only one that profited off their office was the Bidens, fact!

  17. Senator Hirono put it all out there. Of course, Lindsey Graham will keep his excellent insurance while he’s trying to take it away from millions of Americans.

  18. Republican Voters Against Trump
    ❤❤❤👊👊 RVAT 👊👊❤❤❤

  19. As if the Democrats wouldn’t pack the vacancy with a judge that is ideologically driven. ACB seems like legit constitutionalists over all.

  20. Barrett is a right wing Catholic that follows white evangelical ideology.History shows that LIBERAL really means liberated from white supremacist Christianity Ideology
