Leftists appear to be growing increasingly frustrated that harassing Democratic U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema to get her onboard with President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better" spending bill isn't working.

What's the background?

Of course, the nation watched as a left-wing activists followed the Arizona senator into a restroom Oct. 3 and recorded the harassment on video while Sinema was in a stall. Biden brushed off the encounter as something that "happens to everybody." A day later, a leftist confronted Sinema on an airplane — and again, the incident was captured on video. Piling on, left-wing feminist website Jezebel applauded the bullies who went after the female lawmaker.

What happened this time?

In a video posted Monday to Twitter, a woman who claimed she's one of Sinema's constituents confronted the senator in an airport and walked with Sinema, peppering her with questions.

The only words Sinema offered the persistent woman were "please don't touch me" when she got a bit too close.

The woman denied touching Sinema and told her, "I know you're meeting with dozens of lobbyists and talking with corporate donors about the package" — presumably meaning Biden's massive spending bill.

"How many times will you meet with constituents?" the woman continued. "How many times have you met with constituents in negotiating bills that are like this?"

Sinema ignored the woman and instead told a man she was walking next to, "Sorry about this" — and that man was none other than Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, who seemed quite understanding as he called the harassment "par for the course."

The woman didn't give up: "Why won't you meet with my family who are constituents for you? I can have them meet you next week. Every single year in Arizona it's getting hotter and hotter. We're breaking records. ... People are suffering. Your constituents are suffering. What are you gonna do about climate change?"

As Sinema and Scott ascend an escalator, the woman calls out, "Please answer me, senator. My family, my house! We're from Tucson! We're constituents!"

How are leftists reacting?

Of course, leftists are angry that Sinema is ignoring their harassment — but the salt got rubbed on the wound when Sinema opted to talk to Scott in the airport instead of the woman badgering her.

To wit:

  • "Sinema cozying up to Republicans while evading her constituents is not attractive," one Twitter user reacted.
  • "She has the whole nerve to apologize to Tim Scott for this interaction, as if her constituent is a pest," another user noted. "As if she has provided any other route for her constituents to be in reciprocal conversation or contact with her. Can't stand her at all. Wish she'd just go away already."
  • "Sinema needs to apologize to a s**t ton of people that she represents, and none of them are named Tim Scott," another user said.
  • "Sinema won't look the woman in the eye, but somehow she is apologizing to Tim Scott," another user observed. "WTF am I looking at?"

Oh, and the woman who was trying to talk to Sinema appears to have identified herself on Twitter as Chloe Stryker; her bio indicates she's with far-left political group MoveOn.org and worked on U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaigns.

Stryker commented, "Still can't believe she was apologizing to Sen. Tim Scott of all people for my presence in asking her very reasonable questions."
