WATCH: Joe Scarborough Mocks Belaguered GOP Senator Susan Collins
In 2014, Susan Collins was reelected to her Maine senate seat by an astonishing 37.5% margin. Just six short years later, she is in the fight for her political career against Democrat Sara Gideon. How did the gap close so fast?
Many would say it’s becuase of Collins’ refusal to hold President Donald Trump accountable for his actions. This includes the senator famously acquiting Donald Trump during his impeachment trial because he, “learned his lesson.” During Monday’s broadcast, Joe Scarborough ripped the senator for abetting Trump’s assault on the United States Postal Service.
The host began, “Here’s Donald Trump’s quote, Mr. DeJoy, and Senators Ben Sasse, Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, Cory Gardner, Susan Collins. I know this is really going to make you sad, Susan Collins. I wonder if Donald Trump learned — Susan, do you think he learned his lesson, right? You think Donald Trump learned his lesson?”
Scarborough continued, “Let me read you this quote, Susan and you tell me whether you think Donald Trump learned his lesson. ‘If we don’t make a deal,’ Donald Trump said, “That means they don’t get the money.’ That is what Donald Trump said. That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting — so sayeth Donald Trump.”
