Senator Ben Sasse (R-NB) ripped into President Trump on a telephone town hall meeting with voters on Wednesday over a variety of perceived shortcomings.
Sasse said, “He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He’s flirted with White supremacists.”
The criticism didn’t stop there for President Trump. Sasse continued saying, “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.”
Sasse’s criticisms are slightly bizarre as many of them are simply based on hearsay and often parroted by Democrats and never-Trumper Republicans.
One thing’s for sure, Sasse’s allegation that President Trump has “flirted with White supremacists,” is patently false and anyone making the claim should face defamation lawsuits.
Sasse’s complaints about Trump’s handling of the coronavirus is also bizarre and unfounded. It was President Trump who first stopped travel from China and from there many of his moves were based on advice from doctors. Sasse seems to have an axe to grind with the President, but this is a bizarre time to go to work on it.
