The panel on “The Five” praised Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s on Monday for her behavior after being followed into the bathroom by protesters and being filmed without her consent. The Arizona Democrat was followed into an Arizona State University bathroom by members of LUCHA, a left-wing immigration activist group, because she has yet to support President Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill.
“The Five” host Dana Perino said she already dislikes when people use their cell phones in even a personal capacity in the restroom, and called Sinema’s situation an inappropriate breach of privacy.
“I probably would have completely lost it,” she said. “She gets followed into the bathroom not just by women, but by men.”
Cohost Kennedy called the act “childish” and said Sinema should take that experience and allow it to “steel her” will in standing firm on her position.
“I hope she takes this as some sort of inspiration to not bend to the loud mob – because she should not. She should be looking at the bottom line, the price tag and her constituents – and they cannot afford $3.5 trillion – she and Manchin know it,” Kennedy said.
