Is you didn’t already hate Sen. Susan Collins (RINO-Maine) for continuing to throw up roadblocks to any Senate legislation that would pave the way to an eventual Obamacare replacement, this incident should help. Collins and Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) were caught on a hot mic discussing the federal budget, mocking President Trump as being unfamiliar with the process, and accusing him of being “crazy.”

Collins, who is also notable for her efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. mocked the President saying, “I don’t think he knows there is a [Budget Control Act] or anything.” Then Reed took it a step further, questioning Trump’s mental state:

I think — I think he’s crazy. I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.

Collins concurred, adding, “I’m worried.”

Listen to the incredible exchange below:

When the Senate introduced a straight repeal bill for Obamacare, Collins was one of a very few Republicans to oppose an issue that voters strongly urged their representatives to tackle.

These latest comments seem to confirm the sense that she is a secret agent for the Democrats.

She also made snide comments about President Trump’s penchant for commenting on the Russia investigation.

He should not say anything further about the special counsel, his staff or the investigation. I know it’s hard, but he needs to step back and not comment.

Last summer, she became the most senior member of Congress to announce that she would refuse to vote for Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Which begs the question, why bother referring to yourself as a Republican any longer?
