Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., ripped President Trump in a phone call with constituents, saying the commander-in-chief "kisses dictators' butts," "sells out our allies," mistreats women and "spends like a drunken sailor."
What the heck were any of us thinking that selling a TV-obsessed narcissistic individual to the American people was a good idea? It is not a good idea," Sasse said in a recent telephone town hall with his constituents. "I think we are staring down the barrel of a blue tsunami and weve got to hold the Senate and thats what Im focused on.
Sasse's nine-minute diatribe against Trump was first reported by the Washington Examiner, which obtained an audio recording of the town hall. Sasse was responding to a question from a constituent about the senator's relationship with Trump who asked: "Why do you have to criticize him so much?
Sasse said he's found common ground with Trump on certain things, such as nominating conservative judges to the courts, but then he laid out a long list of faults and said it was important to "level" with Nebraskans.
Trump "mocks evangelicals behind closed doors," mistreats women and "flirted with white supremacists," Sasse said.
Trump mishandled the coronavirus pandemic, botched foreign policy and sought to profit off the presidency, the senator continued.

Ben Sasse is a goofy clown that loves to hear himself talk. If he cannot see how reckless his comments are before the election, he's a complete idiot. Does he think Biden/Kamala would be better for the USA?
He looked like an idiot before the senate confirmation hearings. He went on about baseball and the Houston Astros history of cheating. He's trying to make himself appear likable because he's got eyes on making an national run for office. I say #neversasse. He's no better than McCain, Mitt, or those other swamprats. He may as well be making political ads for the DNC. He's a damn fool and a traitor to conservatives.
If he ever thinks of getting on a national ticket, he needs to remember that there are a lot of us #neversasse.
Sasse is the senator from National Review.
Sasse calling another person “narcissistic”. That’s rich.
I can’t recall the last time a DemoncRAT senator turned on their party like some of the gop-e does.
Lets hope this does not age well for Ben Sasse.
No more McLame/Delecto votes from me.
Shut up Sassy. Trump has 0 backing from the media. But has 100% from 50+% of this country. Dbag
Thing that scares me is that people in powerful positions repeat nonsense which is demonstrably false just because it’s the conventional wisdom of the left, or because perhaps they are stupid?
Sasse is an Asse!
...If he cannot see how reckless his comments are before the election, he’s a complete idiot....
Hes a complete idiot of the smartest guy in the room variety. Hes dead to me politically.
Sasse is a Jeff Flake wantabe.
Yeah I got turned off of Ben awhile back.
If Sasse is this bad now just imagine how bad he will be after being reelected for six years.
Prove that claim Ben. How exactly do you know what is going on behind closed doors?
Wonder what the Democrats promised him to go against his own party so strongly.
“Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., ripped President Trump in a phone call with constituents, saying the commander-in-chief “kisses dictators’ butts,” “sells out our allies,” mistreats women and “spends like a drunken sailor.””
This is Senator Sasse’s GOTV effort.
At this point, it’s too late to run up opposition in the primary. He’s basically a Romney-type pretender. I’d suggest to review options in three years and start to get a person ready to primary him in 2026.
