Susan Collins Makes Dumb Move, Publicly Trashes Trump Again: “Painful To Watch”

by J.C McCallum

Susan Collins just committed political suicide and stabbed Trump in the back, again. Collins is in a tight race in Maine and the left, still furious over Brett Kavanaugh, has raised tens of millions to bring her down.

So one would think she would fully embrace the GOP and President Trump and ride into November united and strong.

But you would be wrong. Susan Collins came out and trashed Trump today leaving one to wonder if she knows the left will never vote for her after she did the right thing and confirmed Kavanaugh.

They never will vote for her, not because of Trump or because of her but because she voted for brett Kavanaugh. She must know this and if she doesn’t she will learn the hard way these people are vicious/

So trashing Trump will not get her one Dem vote, not one, but will surely cost her quite a few from the GOP base. Because at this point trashing Trump doesn’t help anyone in the GOP.

“It was painful to watch peaceful protesters be subjected to tear gas in order for the president to go across the street to a church that I believe he’s attended only once,” she said.

From The Hill:

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Tuesday called out President Trump for what she thought was his “unsympathetic” handling of peaceful protesters who were dispersed with tear gas on Monday evening so Trump could pose with a Bible in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church.

She said it was “painful to watch” U.S. Park Police and National Guard troops fire tear gas and forcefully push through a large group of peaceful protesters to clear a way for Trump. The dispersed people were protesting the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, under police custody in Minneapolis last week.

Collins, who faces a competitive reelection race in a state where Trump is expected to lose the popular vote, said Trump’s actions were not what the country needs at a time of widespread racial tension and high unemployment, which have added to the anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

“To me, at a time like this, the president ought to be trying to calm the nation, pledge to right historic wrongs and be a steady influence, I don’t think he was last night,” Collins told reporters when asked about the president’s controversial walk across H Street between Lafayette Square and St. John’s Episcopal Church, which had been partially burned over the weekend by rioters.

“It was painful to watch peaceful protesters be subjected to tear gas in order for the president to go across the street to a church that I believe he’s attended only once,” she said.

“All of us are upset at the fire that was set at the church, an historic house of worship for many, many presidents, but I thought the president came across as unsympathetic and as insensitive to the rights of people to peacefully protest,” she added.
