Trump lashes back at Nebraska Sen. Sasse after criticism

OCTOBER 17, 2020 — 2:52PM

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump pushed back Saturday at Sen. Ben Sasse on Twitter, calling the Nebraska senator “a liability to the Republican Party, and an embarrassment" to the state.

. . .

Sasse, who is running for a second term in a reliably red state and is seen as a potential presidential candidate for 2024, made the comments in response to a question about why he has been willing to publicly criticize a president of his own party. He also criticized Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and said Trump’s family has treated the presidency “like a business opportunity.”

Trump tweeted that Sasse is “the least effective of our 53 Republican Senators, and a person who truly doesn’t have what it takes to be great.”

Trump's tirade continued throughout the day as he compared Sasse to former U.S. Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona, who left the Senate after combative relationships with the president. Trump suggested perhaps Republicans should find “a new and more viable candidate?”

2. Sasse is the worst kind of republican

He's kissing Trumps ass voting on everything Trump wants until the primary is over. Then he sees the writing on the wall and chickens out to pretend that he is some kind of "reasonable" puke that can work well with others.

He's a slimy shitheel.

3. Here is my take,

after New Years the Money people and Power Brokers associated with the RNC will cause a massive revolt with everyone associated with today's parties leadership be fired. Sasse and his Ilk will be the new face of the GOP.

11. "The least effective of our 53 Republican Senators"

I'm surprised. I would have thought he'd have picked Romney.

15. If Sasse is a reliable GOP vote, how can he be the "least effective"?

Trumps running out of people to insult
