Anti-Trump Republican’s HOT MIC Moment
The hot mic has claimed another victim, and this time, it’s a Republican.
Senator Susan Collins is virtually unknown. But now she bucked the Trumpster.
Collins was one of the turncoat Republicans who helped kill the healthcare bill last week. For that reason, she’s been a new topic of conversation. It seems Republican women have nowhere near the loyalty of their brain-dead counterparts. Honestly, I have more respect for the Pelosis and Waters of the world, because at the very least Democrat women support their presidents.
Apparently one Republican man felt the same passion on this subject as I. Actually more. This Republican man actually challenged Collins to a duel.
As the Washington Post reports:
These days, many Washington politicians are unafraid to take verbal shots at one another over legislative discord, whether it’s on social media or on cable network shows. But long gone are the days when politicians would threaten to settle rivalries with duels.
So it was a throwback when Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Republican from Corpus Christi, Tex., on Friday criticized some Republican “female senators from the Northeast” for their opposition to efforts to pass a health care overhaul.
Then, he said, “if it was a guy from south Texas I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.”
Speaking to local radio host Bob Jones, Farenthold was referring to the 1804 duel in which Burr shot and killed Alexander Hamilton, former treasury secretary and Burr’s long-standing political rival and personal enemy.
The Senate is a lot like a small town. Gossip travels faster than a fighter jet. Thus, it didn’t take long for Collins to get word of the challenge.
Everybody knew Farenthold was only kidding. He clearly said “if she were a guy.” And honestly, even if Collins were a guy, these weak-kneed sissy Republicans want anything but a fight.
Regardless, Farenthold apologized, and that was supposed to end it. He was just irritated by the party members who refuse to do what the people asked for.
Collins is a member of that group. She refuses to support the president. She knows exactly what the people asked for, and yet she continues with the same old crap that was voted out. No wonder Farenthold took aim at her. However, he at least had enough class not to call her by name. Collins, on the other hand, is not quite as classy.
The Dallas News reports:
On Tuesday, Collins was caught on an accidental hot mike after an appropriations committee markup expressing her thoughts on the congressman.
“Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” she asked a male senator, later confirmed to be ranking member Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I.
“Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? Because you could beat the s*** out of him first,” Reed responded.
“Well he’s huge, and I don’t mean to be unkind but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable,” Collins said. “Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to a bunny, a playboy bunny?”
Sounds like Collins might be just a little bit jealous.
Who cares if Farenthold took a picture with a Playboy bunny. Aren’t they women too?
Collins has officially lost her right to complain about Trump or anyone else and their comments against women. She can’t play that card ever again. Furthermore, let’s go ahead and say it. Her voice is so annoying it could be used as a form of torture. If they wanna end these stupid Russian investigations, just put her in charge of reading all the questions. People will spit out everything they know just to end her talking.
According to official reports, both sides have issued the necessary apologies to move on. But personally, I think Collins is the jerk in this situation. Farenthold was political in his actions. Collins was personal. There’s a big difference between the two. Hopefully, she learned to look around before she opens her big mouth in the future.
