When Democrat Kyrsten Sinema defeated Martha McSally last November to win a seat in the Senate, Republicans weren’t pleased as you’d imagine. Only makes sense.
And yet, since Sinema has been sworn into office, Sinema has been quite the surprise.
The openly bisexual member of Congress actually agrees with President Trump quite often.
In fact, it’s happening too often.
From AZ Central:
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is facing a censure vote from the Arizona Democratic Party, brought by progressives who deem her politics too accommodating to President Donald Trump at the expense of Democratic values.
Sinema, D-Ariz., built a moderate political brand during her three terms in the House of Representatives, which has extended to her early days in the Senate. According to the FiveThirtyEight Trump Tracker, she has opposed Trump while in the Senate 81% of the time. In the House, she supported Trump’s agenda 54% of the time.
While Sinema’s political centrism has earned her Republican support, it has grated on progressives — some of whom silently protested her during a state fundraising dinner in downtown Phoenix. Democratic state committeemen will consider the resolution on Saturday, at the Arizona Democratic Party’s quarterly meeting.
Eric Holder, the only cabinet-level member in history to be held in contempt of Congress, once paraphrased Michelle Obama by saying, “When they go low, we kick ’em.”
They being Republicans.
Sinema must’ve taken Holder’s words to heart, as she bashed her state left and right while running for Senate.
She was even caught by undercover camera saying you “can’t be talking about gun bans” in Arizona because Arizonans will “actually shoot you.”

In the past, Sinema bashed the U.S. military as zombie-like terrorist slaughterers of the innocent.
She said stay-at-home mothers are “leeches.”
She detests representing Arizona as a Congresswoman, claiming the Grand Canyon state should serve as a “warning symbol.”
She supported a lawyer convicted for aiding a terrorist.
She equated American soldiers’ deaths with those of illegal immigrants.
She claimed Arizona is the “meth lab of democracy.”
She called Arizonans “crazy.”
Dear Rest Of The World, I just want you to know, Arizona wasn't always this crazy. It used to be pretty great, actually. Sincerely, Kyrsten
