Hawaiian Senator Mazie Hirono left millions of Americans scratching their heads Monday; bizarrely suggesting that eliminating air travel is not “the crazy position” in combatting climate change.
Hirono was speaking with MSNBC when she was asked to clarify her position regarding the ‘Green New Deal’ championed by prominent Democrats from across the country.

“What the Green New Deal stands for is the recognition that climate change is happening and not sticking our heads in the sand. What’s really crazy is Trump and all his minions who think that global warming and climate change is not happening,” said the Senator.
“They offer absolutely zero in terms of what they would propose. All they can do is mock and attack, and I think that’s the crazy position,” she added.
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
