While campaigning in Joe Biden’s elections down and through an epidemic, Donald Trump opted to devote time on Saturday morning to a Twitter rant against a member of his own party in the Senate, a chamber Republican on November 3 Was defeated
The president called Ben Saas “a little”, “the least effective of our 53 Republican senators”, “rather stupid and obnoxious” and “an embarrassment to the great state of Nebraska.”
“Besides,” Trump concluded, “he’s just a wonderful man!”
Sasse’s crime saying the president and “flirts with the white supremacist” “dictators’ butt kiss” component was earlier on a call with reports by the Washington Examiner to have criticized Trump in strong context.
“Now I’m seeing the possibility of a Republican bloodbath in the Senate, and that’s why I’ve never been on the Trump train,” Saas said.
This week, analysts at the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia predicted to Senate Democrats that “a net gain of between one and eight seats … would be enough to give them a small majority”.
The 48-year-old mother-in-law, a moderate-conservative conservative widely thought to be joining the presidential race in 2024, is a shoo-in for re-election. In 2018 they published a book-length appeal for sibling across the aisle, calling them: Why We Hate Each Other – and How to Fix.
But critics mocked him over his claim of “never being on the Trump train” – he has voted with the Trump White House 87% of the time, and Trump has both voted to get impeachment, leaving Mitt Romney in the rest of the party Joined charges.
Talking to constituents, Sasse criticized Trump for treating the Corona epidemic “like a PR crisis” and said the president “kissed dictators’ butt” [and] Scripture behind closed doors.
“His family has treated the presidential race like a business opportunity,” the mother-in-law said. “He is playing with white supremacists.”
Evidence for such allegations is plentiful. But Trump also pointed to hard political truths, as he exposed the fate of other senators who have turned against him.
“Senator Saas was as good as a Rhino [Republican in Name Only] That may be until he recently wins the Republican nomination for a second term, ”Trump wrote. “Then he went back to his stupid and unpleasant ways. Should realize that he cannot lose to a Democrat. “
Trump later stated that the mother-in-law “seems to be moving down the same introspective path as former senators ” Cenne Corker … and Jeff ‘The Flake’ Flake”.
Corker, of Tennessee, was once considered a moving friend or secretary of state, but ended up comparing Trump’s White House to an “adult daycare center” and retiring in 2018. Flake of Arizona also stepped down that same year.
Trump said that the two were “completely incompetent, couldn’t even come close to winning their priorities, and decided to move away from politics and become ‘beautiful.’ The next could be, or maybe give Republicans a new and more Need to find a viable candidate? “
that will not happen. However, on Friday, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin slammed the mother-in-law for not publicly opposing Trump.
Rubin wrote, “When his countrymen needed candor, he kept quiet.”
“In front of Trump’s attacks, the mother-in-law has not publicly come forward to defend Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease specialist. He spoke to governors not to follow Trump’s recommendations on the epidemic, or to postpone the White House for undercover and social distance, or Trump’s conduct when the president was infected, or about Trump with the American people Not included in any meaningful way. Casteism and Contempt for Religion.
“One must conclude that sheer cowardice and a yen need to remain in office (to avoid the wrath of the mug crowd) in order to stay in their position. With every other silent Republican in this era, personal ambition Has won the obligation to the country and the constitution. “
On Saturday, James Wegman, SASE spokesman, Claimed: “Ben has said the same thing to Nebraskans that he has spoken directly to the president in the Oval Office. Ben is focused on defending the Republican Senate majority, and he is not going to waste even a minute on tweets.”
