Like spoiled children who didn’t get their way, Democrat senators stomped their feet and threw a fit during a Friday morning meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting, walking out in protest during a procedural vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh
Lawmakers who walked out included, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif, who initiated the temper tantrum, and Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, president of the she-woman man hating club.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, the Democrat from Connecticut who lied about serving in Vietnam, dutifully followed Hirono, a practice he’s beginning to make a habit of.

When it came time to record her vote, Hirono said no three consecutive times, her voice rising with each utterance, until the third “no” was reminiscent of an angry child screaming no.
Another participant in the walkout was Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-Del.
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., didn’t walk out, but when his name was called to record his vote, he refused to speak — rumors that he held his breath until his face turned blue are not true.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, admonished the photographers in the center of the room, who stood to take pictures of the Democrats as they stormed out, reminding them of the rules and telling them to leave the room if they don’t know.

The four Democrats who walked out promptly held a press conference in the hallway, with their media allies giving them coverage to compete with the hearing still under way.
Harris complained Republicans were exercising “raw power” to ram Kavanaugh’s nomination, the Daily Mail reported.
This coming from the party that rammed Obamacare down the throats of the GOP — a process that featured Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., saying when it comes to rules, “we make ’em up as we go along.”
That Harris doesn’t grasp it’s because of “raw power” exercised by Harry Reid, when he was the Senate majority leader, that now allows the Republican Party to confirm Kavanaugh shows how little she knows.
Speaking of spoiled children, here’s an example of the chaos in the hallways — why political activists are allowed to behave in this manner being a whole other matter:
