Ben Sasse is the reason people hate politicians. They are cowards and hypocrites who do not deserve our votes or trust.
We learned what Ben really thinks of President Trump after a private call with constituents was leaked to the media. (Hear the recording below)
Now, remember, Ben needed Trump to win his primary and he has voted with Trump on almost everything. But now, when Trump is in a tight fight and may lose (he may win too) Ben trashes him? Scurrying after 2024, Ben?
“In his partial defense here, I think that lots of the news media have pretended that COVID is literally the first public health crisis ever. And somehow, it’s Donald Trump’s fault. That’s not true. They just wanted to use it against him,” Sasse said.
“But the reality is that he careened from curb to curb. First, he ignored COVID. And then he went into full economic shutdown mode. He was the one who said 10 to 14 days of shutdown would fix this. And that was always wrong. I mean, and so I don’t think the way he’s lead through COVID has been reasonable or responsible, or right.”
Ben continued trashing 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.”
“The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor.”
“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.”
Sasse worried Trump’s “stupid political obsessions” could drive the country left.
“If young people become permanent Democrats because they’ve just been repulsed by the obsessive nature of our politics, or if women who were willing to still vote with the Republican Party in 2016 decide that they need to turn away from this party permanently in the future.”
“I’ve spent lots of the of the last year on a campaign bus, and when you listen to Nebraskans, they don’t really want more rage tweeting as a new form of entertainment,” he said.
“I think the overwhelming reason that President Trump won in 2016 was simply because Hillary Clinton was literally the most unpopular candidate in the history of polling.”
