Appearing on CNN, Senator Hirono (D-Hawaii) refused to accept reality and claimed that President Trump “No Wolf, he wasn’t acquitted.”
The Senate has clearly spoken now. The President was acquitted. Do you..
Mazie Hirono: (interrupting)
No, Wolf, he wasn’t acquitted. It was a rigged trial. You don’t get acquitted when you don’t even get to call witnesses or have the documents because the President stonewalled all efforts on the house to get the information they requested so there you go. It was a rigged trial. He can go run around and say he’s acquitted but you don’t get acquitted from a rigged trial.
Well Senator, I just want to point out. There was a role call. Not guilty or guilty. Not guilty was the majority and the Chief Justice of the United States announced that he was acquitted, that he was not guilty.
Sen. Mazie Hirono just claimed Trump was not acquitted because it was a "rigged trial."
CNN's Wolf Blitzer had to jump in and correct her:
"The Chief Justice of the United States announced that he was acquitted, that he was not guilty."
Hirono then doubled down.

And just to prove Mazie Hirono outright lied about President Trump not being acquitted here is the moment he was…
Chief Justice Roberts:
It is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be, and he is hereby, acquitted of the charges in said articles.
