Dem Sen Hirono: Trump ‘Thinks He Is a Dictator and King’

Tuesday on CNN’s “Wolf,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said President Donald Trump “should put a crown on his head” because he was acting like a king.

When asked about the president’s criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Hirono said, “It shows the president is very desperate as to what his concerns regarding the Mueller investigation. For him to come out and say that he could pardon himself and some of the other outrageous statements he is making — he should put a crown on his head because he is acting like a king and that is not our country.”

She added, “He thinks he is a dictator and king. He says all of these outrageous things. I think it shows he that is really afraid what the Mueller investigation will show with regard to his own actions and particularly, of course, his efforts to sidetrack the investigation. His continued attacks on Jeff Sessions is just yet another example of fear that he is expressing.”
