What do Donald Trump and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) have in common? They are both cons. For years, Collins has been conning the people of her state into believing that she is a moderate swing vote. She is not, and this is why.
The Lincoln Project was founded by brilliant Republicans and former Republicans. It has sent out a storm of stunning ads attacking Donald Trump. Then, the group moved out from Trump and expanded to states where a Democrat could take the seat from a Republican who is a traitorous “Trumpist.”
When it came time to stand with Utah’s Senator Mitt Romney (R) during the president’s impeachment hearing, Collins voted with the Republicans. Her excuse was that Trump had “learned his lesson.” He learned his lesson after 73 years of not learning his lesson? Not likely.
During the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, a woman who was a very credible expert on sexual abuse testified. She also had been attacked sexually by Kavanaugh. Up until the last moment, Collins was “concerned,” “still concerned,” and “very concerned.” Then, she threw women and her constituents under the bus and voted for installing a sexual predator into a life term on the highest court in the nation.
The Lincoln Project announced that it released a new video today entitled “Trump Stooge” on Wednesday. Its purpose was to hold the senator with a “T” after her name accountable:
‘Senator Susan Collins (T) Maine accountable for her consistent capitulation to the Trump administration and failure to hold the President accountable.’
The organization’s website noted:
‘Collins has become infamous for voicing empty criticism of Trump alongside statements that he will somehow, eventually, transform into a noble and responsible leader.’
Co-founder of The Lincoln Project Reed Galen said:
‘Susan Collins doesn’t live up to what Maine expects or deserves Maine is waking up to who she is and her inability to lead. For the first time in her Senate career, she should be concerned.’
The Lincoln Project indicated that Collins was “no longer a Republican nor a conservative. She’s a Trumpist:”
‘Republicans believe in a strong foreign policy. Trump and Collins do not. Republicans believe in individual liberty, states’ rights and the 10th Amendment. Trump and Collins do not. Republicans don’t believe in excessive use of federal power. Trump does, and Collins silently ‘worries.’
That was when the page called for its ask:
‘Defeating Trump means defeating his network of enablers as well. Come November 3rd, it’s time for Senator Collins to go’
‘Steve Bullock is exactly the kind of leader we need in the Senate. He’s been an independent thinker as Governor, and is someone who truly understands what it means to put people before politics.’
The site continued, noting that he has proven himself to be a “guy who shows up and gets the job done.” Then, that statement went for the ask:
‘As he’s shown Montanans time and again, Bullock is the kind of guy who shows up and gets the job done. We’re asking Montanans to show up for him, and for our country, on November 3rd.’
The group’s pro-Bullock ad is just below:
