I think BS' quote is Not very smart.

“I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” the senator said of the Florida governor’s race

BTW, Tulsi, here it is from Trump himself as to who is to blame for the shutdown:

There was a faction who

claimed Assad was innocent.

President Obama said it was Assad.. I trust him on that.

Gabbard: 'Both sides' at fault for shutdown

Aloha, oasis.. more info on Gil and Kai Kahele..

I see nowhere that Gilbert Kahele or Kai have ever been a repub.

Gil was appointed by Gov Neil Abercrombie to State Senate and Kai was appointed to his dad's seat, when he passed on, by Gov Ige.

They both have a record of dedicated service.

Gabbard's "potential misstep".. I call it a misstep..

“I have spoken about my upbringing. I was raised in a very socially conservative household, with views and beliefs and things I no longer hold today. Like most of the country my views have evolved, to the point where now you can look to my record over the last six years in Congress, that reflect what’s in my heart and my commitment to fighting for equality, my commitment to fighting for LGBT rights.”

Gabbard also seemed, however, to make a potential misstep. Asked about reports she would face a challenger for her House seat if she does not make it to the White House, the candidate for the presidency told CNN: “I’m not thinking about politics right now.”

Gabbard started last week "attacking Sen Mazie Hirono"..

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard accuses fellow Democrats of 'religious bigotry' in questioning judicial nominee

Hirono’s office responded Wednesday that Gabbard was mischaracterizing her questioning of Buescher, and that the senator was voicing her concerns about the nominee’s past public statements rather than his religion.

“It is unfortunate that Congresswoman Gabbard based her misguided opinion on the far-right wing manipulation of these straightforward questions,” Hirono spokesman Will Dempster said in a statement.

He added that over the past two years, Hirono “has been attacked by right wing ideologues for her examination of Donald Trump’s ideologically-driven nominees to the courts.”

“Senator Hirono asks all judicial nominees — particularly those who have expressed very strong personal ideological views in conflict with Supreme Court precedent — if they can be fair,” Dempster said. “She asked Mr. Buescher, who has a clear record of anti-choice activism, whether he could separate his personal beliefs from decisions he would make if confirmed for a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.”
