GOP Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska harshly criticized President Trump in a phone conversation with constituents last week.
Sasse said Trump has “careened from curb to curb” on dealing with the coronavirus,” “kisses dictators’ butts,” “regularly sells out [U.S.] allies,” “spends like a drunken sailor,” “mocks evangelicals behind closed doors,” and has “flirted with white supremacists.” Sasse also said he takes issue with “the way [Trump] mistreats women.”
Sasse gave the critique in response to a question from a Nebraska constituent who asked Sasse why Sasse has to criticize the President so much.
The Nebraska Senator has been a harsh critic of President Trump’s since the 2016 campaign.
President Trump dismissed Sasse’s comments as those of a RINO (Republican in Name Only), who is not very effective and is a “liability” to the Republican Party.
…Nomination to run for a second term. Then he went back to his rather stupid and obnoxious ways. Must feel he can’t lose to a Dem. Little Ben is a liability to the Republican Party, and an embarrassment to the Great State of Nebraska. Other than that, he’s just a wonderful guy!
