While only a few GOP senators have ever publicly crossed him to any meaningful degree, 21 members of the caucus have been outed as having “extreme contempt” for President Donald Trump behind-the-scenes.
In a Sunday night Twitter thread, legendary journalist Carl Bernstein named names — reporting that 21 Republicans in the Senate have “repeatedly” made known their disdain for the president. Some of the 21, such as Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) hardly rate as a shock — given their willingness to criticize Trump openly. Others such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) are somewhat more surprising, but have offered hints of what Bernstein reports to be their true feelings. A few, though, do rank among the president’s top shills on Capitol Hill — including Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) and outgoing Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ).
The rest of the 21 are; Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), Sen. John Thune (R-SD), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Sen. Todd Young (R-IN).
That is fucking brilliant!
You just know that every one of those named just went to the top of Trump’s shit list.
Which seems more than fair to me.
If you are a Republican politician who knows full well that Donald Trump is chronically unfit for this job, and you say nothing, you are a traitor to your country and you deserve to be punished.
