CURRENT EVENTS/PERSONAL OPINION/COMMENTARY:

You cannot make this stuff up!!  Senator Ben Sasse bombed President Trump at a Virtual Town Hall the other night.  Here are the details:

Sen. Ben Sasse eviscerated President Trump during a phone call with constituents in which the Nebraska Republican accused the president of cozying up to dictators, mistreating women, flirting with white supremacists and irresponsibly handling the coronavirus pandemic.

Sasse’s comments were disclosed by the Washington Examiner, which obtained an audio recording of the call, a campaign telephone townhall with Nebraska voters. Sasse’s spokesman verified that the reporting was accurate, but declined to answer more specific questions such as when the call happened.

During the call, a woman asked Sasse why he’s so hard on the president. The senator has been among the Republican lawmakers willing to criticize the president from time to time, but has mostly supported him and his policies.

But in the call, Sasse unleashed a torrent of criticisms at Trump.

“The way he kisses dictators’ butts. I mean, the way he ignores the Uighurs, our literal concentration camps in Xinjiang. Right now, he hasn’t lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong-Kongers,” Sasse said.

“The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor,” Sasse continued. “The ways I criticize President Obama for that kind of spending; I’ve criticized President Trump for as well. He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He’s flirted with white supremacists.”

This appears to be the most brutal assessment of the president from a sitting GOP lawmaker, echoing many of the charges against Trump from the left. While some Republicans who have left Congress and now speak out against Trump claim many of their ex-colleagues privately feel the same, no one has gone this far in denouncing the president.

Sasse’s spokesman, James Wegmann, in confirming the authenticity of the call, defended his boss as being focused solely on the Senate races to ensure Republicans maintain the majority....

“I don’t know how many more times we can shout this: Even though the Beltway is obsessing exclusively about the presidential race, control of the Senate is ten times more important,” Wegmann said. “The fragile Senate seats that will determine whether Democrats nuke the Senate are the races Ben cares about, the races he’s working on, and the only races he’s talking about.”

Sasse said on the call that he fears Trump’s “stupid political obsessions” and “rage tweeting” will drive voters away.

Wegmann did not respond when asked if Sasse intends to vote for Trump next month.

Well it looks like the RINO's are getting a head start moving to the otherside of the Rubicon!  I have always had a sense of respect for Senator Sasse even though he often is a bit too Conservative for my taste on certain matters.  He is level headed and I firmly believe he has Americas best interest at heart.  He also in my opinion is one of the last Conservative Republicans who has a chance of saving the Republican Party from going full Trump!  

The only question is whether or not he has waited too long to speak out!  Only time will tell!

I always knew there were RINOS in Washington. 

Yeah Amala....they are starting to herd up the closer it comes to election day!{#basic-laugh.gif}

In Name Only. If one transforms that into All Words Are Names Only...you feel me?...Word = All Words Extant = remember this one: "In the Beginning was the Word, And...".

Attemps at 4th dimensional perspectives. Who else but me can arsed to look into that? Hmm?

The best that the volk tend to do in my never-humble-opinion: "Oh, End-Times, they're here, la da da, bake a fucking cake then, tra la la..."

Now I have to post. Parentfucker! Grrr.

respect for Senator Sasse even though he often is a bit too Conservative for my taste on certain matters.  He is level headed and I firmly believe he has Americas best interest at heart.

"Level headed" I'd prefer to be able to say sincerely about anyone at all, something like:

Does his best to scruple, his best to be ethical, his best to abide laws. Perhaps in that order.

MC I would say that your description does pretty much fit Sasse!

Thanks. I still have this thing about words. The last names "Sasse" and "Wegmann" will never not seem perfected to me. Can't help it.

My question is this.  If he disapproves of trump's actions, and believe me I think there is huge amount to finid objectionable, why has he consistently supported trump.

As you say, a little too too, a little too late, it seems to me.  But I guess I will give him a couple of points for finally standing up....a tiny bit anyway.  Now will he try to actually do something about it when it comes to the next debacle trump stirs up.

I think that Sasse justifies his actions by saying he is supporting Conservative ideals.  Now let's take the recent Stimulus Package for an example.  Sasse and other Conservatives are against the spending of this money because they are deficit hawks....and they also believe that Trump is going to lose so they are setting themselves up to oppose any of Bidens budget actions.{#basic-laugh.gif}

Since they have stuck by trump, and the republican party has pretty much all been at least partially approving his action, Sasse may be in trouble whichever way he goes.  If he is seen by the hard line trump supporters as going against trump...they may crucify him.

If on the other hand, he stays loyal, he may get crucified by those republicans who have given up on trump.  And certainly the Democrats would be remiss if in his next attempt at getting re-elected, they don't bring up that fact...that he stuck by trump.  Especially if trump loses, which as you know, I hope he does.  

I read this earlier today--being critical of Trump doesn't mean you aren't a Republican but maybe it means you are an honest man???

Exactly!{#basic-laugh.gif}
