Just when you thought Sen. Mazie Hirono was the only macadamia nut out of the Hawaiian Islands, along comes Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI).
In a comment on social media (that was removed in a matter of minutes after posting), Schatz made a comment that could only be categorized as either:
- Blatantly political
- Monumentally ignorant
Either way, his comment certainly illustrates the Distinguished Gentleman’s poor impulse control.
As reported by Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker;
Trump derangement syndrome has entered a new stage, in which hysteria is the operating principle. How else to explain a sitting United States Senator, a member of what is called “the world’s greatest deliberative body,” denouncing the use of tear gas against caravan members storming the US border at San Ysidro while throwing rocks at law enforcement officers (US Border Patrol) suggesting they are “chemical weapons”?
Samuel Chamberlain of Fox News reports:
Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted Sunday that the use of tear gas against Central American migrants who attempted to enter the U.S. illegally may have been a violation of international agreements governing the use of chemical weapons — before he backtracked.
