Susan Collins’ Flip Flop On Trump And Kavanaugh Shows Sick Side Of Politics

Do you all remember this? We sure do.

That’s Republican Senator Susan Collins putting President Trump on blast for his sexual assault allegations last year. See her saying it “remains very disturbing”? This is the same Susan Collins that just voted in Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court while he was under FBI investigation for being a sexual predator.

In last year’s interview, Collins said, “He did say that [all the women are lying] and President Trump was not my choice for the Republican nominee for president and I did not support him in part because of the way that all of these reports about how he was treating women. [Trump] is president now and I am working with him on some issues but those allegations remain very disturbing.”

Last year, we published this after seeing Colling stand up to Trump, “Once again, Senator Collins is on the forefront of her party, simply because she can publicly acknowledge that Trump’s behavior is wrong in so many ways and does not sweep those wrongdoings under a metaphorical rug, or bury them under a metaphorical avalanche. Why is it so easy for people to point out the wrongdoings of other politicians, but when it comes to Trump they pretend like he has no accusations against his own behavior? The Republican party needs to grow in so many ways; looking to Collins as an example is a fantastic way to start.”

We hereby officially rescind that editorial. Susan Collins is the exact face of the Republican party; only showing up when needed and trying to advance an agenda. We applauded Collins at calling out Trump last year. We take it all back. This behavior and abhorrent flip flopping is exactly the opposite of what this nation needs.
