Trump is now going around calling people "human scum" (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump is mad at Republicans who aren't towing the party line in favor of him. That much was evidenced today.
Trump said in the early afternoon:
"The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!"
He wanted everyone to see him saying that, so he even pinned the tweet to the top of his page.
You have to hand it to the man, he knows how to keep getting your attention. And, he keeps angling for lower and lower on the totem pole of decency.
Trump followed up his comments on who exactly he was referring to:
"Never Trumper Republican John Bellinger, represents Never Trumper Diplomat Bill Taylor (who I don’t know), in testimony before Congress! Do Nothing Democrats allow Republicans Zero Representation, Zero due process, and Zero Transparency....Does anybody think this is fair? Even though there was no quid pro quo, I’m sure they would like to try. Worse than the Dems!
It would be really great if the people within the Trump Administration, all well-meaning and good (I hope!), could stop hiring Never Trumpers, who are worse than the Do Nothing Democrats. Nothing good will ever come from them!"
It is known that Republicans talk behind Trump's back all the time and are said to even support his being convicted and removed from office if only a secret vote were held on the floor.
There's a "growing unease" among Republicans they simply won't be able to defend Trump against impeachment anymore, either. CNN reporter Jamie Gangel says that members in the party she has spoken to are getting "fed up" justifying this kind of behavior from the president.
“They can’t defend him on substance,” she said. “I just want to read you some of the quotes from the Republicans on the Hill. They’re saying they are ‘fed up and tired of being asked to defend the president.’ They say there is a growing unease that there is no defense: ‘We can’t defend the substance, all we can do is talk about the process.'”
On Wednesday, the big controversy of the day was certain House Republicans still loyal to Trump trying to storm into a secure hearing room known as the SCIF in an attempt to delay the impeachment inquiry against Trump.

It was also reported that information was being leaked in a back channel back to the president, where Trump would have inside intel on what's going on. It's just a crazy day on Capitol Hill.
