CNN: 'Ted Cruz Accused of 'Mansplaining' As Hearing Goes Off The Rails'

Source:CNN- Ted Cruz vs Mazie Hirono on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"A Senate Judiciary Hearing considering the nomination of Judge Gustavo GelpĂ­ to the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals got heated as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) lashed out at chair Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA) and Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who accused Cruz of misrepresenting her line of questioning." 

From CNN 

"Mansplaining (a blend word of man and the informal form splaining of the gerund explaining) is a pejorative term meaning "(of a man) to comment on or explain something to a woman in a condescending, overconfident, and often inaccurate or oversimplified manner".[1][2][3][4] Author Rebecca Solnit ascribed the phenomenon to a combination of "overconfidence and cluelessness".[5] Lily Rothman, of The Atlantic, defined it as "explaining without regard to the fact that the explainee knows more than the explainer, often done by a man to a woman." 

From Wikipedia 

So according to Senator Mazie Hirono (Democrat, Hawaii) who I'm sure I tend to agree with her more often that I disagree with her (or at least more often than Flyin Ted Cruz, which ain't saying anything) Senator Cruz was mansplaining her because he disagreed with her on orginalism? 

If this mansplaining claim is true, this is just  one case, one example of why Congress has fewer fans than skunks at weddings. Apparently according to militant feminists you're now allowed to contradict a woman in public without someone throwing an insult at you. And oh by the way: I'm not sticking up for Senator Cruz. I don't call him Flying Ted because I'm a member of his fan club. I'm just pointing out that political bullshit is nonpartisan.
