Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse’s mission against Donald Trump hasn’t slowed much, and he is now taking on Trump’s supporters — even those in the media.
At CPAC yesterday, Sasse “jetted up” to FOXNews’s Sean Hannity while Hannity was speaking with Glen Beck.
According to Beck, Sasse then said to Hannity:
“Sean Hannity, what you are doing is bullcrap!”
“He was angry. … And Sean said, ‘Excuse me?’ And he said, ‘What you’re doing is bullcrap!’
And he [Hannity] said, ‘Who are you?’ Which didn’t make things better,” Beck continued.
“And he said, ‘I am Senator Ben Sasse.’”
Sasse then went on to say to Hannity…
“You have gone on the air and said because I took what I believe to be a moral position and said I cannot vote for Donald Trump, I will not vote for Donald Trump, you are telling my constituents that I am voting for Hillary Clinton. And I am not voting for Hillary Clinton.”
And I have to say that this is the first time I’ve heard Sasse’s opposition to Trump as being a “moral position”.
Does that mean that all those people voting for Trump at amoral?
Hannity responded saying,
“I didn’t say that. It’s half a vote for Hillary Clinton.”
Some other local views…
But Sasse’s anti-Trumpianship isn’t just bugging newscasters.
It is also getting to elected officials in Nebraska.
“It is a little interesting and peculiar when we’re looking at winning in November,” and said he “struggled to see how Sasse’s statements help Republicans.”
called Sasse’s comments immature, and said Sasse needs to realize he’s no longer a professor or college president.
“This is one of those times that you quietly and in a statesman-like manner allow the system to work out and provide the leadership that needs to be provided.”
“If Trump wins the nomination I will vote for the Republican and not tear our party apart like some for political gain.”
She went on record months ago as supporting the eventual nominee, and a few weeks ago as endorsing Senator Marco Rubio.
Yesterday during her weekly press call she noted,
“I’ve chosen the candidate I’m supporting in this primary. I haven’t made a secret of it. And I’m going to continue to work for a really strong good candidate.”
“I do not want to see a continuation of this administration’s policies into the future.”
Fischer didn’t specifically call out Sasse, but one doesn’t have to stretch to far to see that she is noting her support for a specific candidate, as opposed to just tearing down Trump.
And on that note, that was some debate last night, eh?
You know, when there are all of those futuristic shows and movies and such, they all seem to be about flying cars and hoverboards.
Rarely do you see them accurately predict politics.
Such as this:
Thank you CNN, for getting right to the crux of the matter.
(Lovely conversation I got to have with my kid during the debate last night…)
Of course we’re probably just a few weeks away from…
Oh good lord!
Fun watching the debate with all of you on the Twitter last night.
Along with the above mess, there was THIS that was just…bwbwbbwbhahabwbwb.
I can’t even..uh…ooh boy.
In the mean time the Socialist is taking selfies in Lincoln and Hillary’s server tech just got immunity.
Hey have a great weekend!
Keep an eye on @LeavenworthSt on the Twitter this early evening, as I may do a live Periscope or two (you can see it via the link on the Twitter).
