Twitter Destroys Susan Collins: Watch, It Wasn’t Right for Pelosi to Reject Jordan and Banks
Psychologists, historians, perhaps prosecutors, will all spend time throughout their careers attempting to explain and understand how it was that Susan Collins became known as a GOP moderate as her “brand”. Occasionally, during an interview on some proposed congressional action, or some sort of action taken by a GOP leader, she will express “concern” (which has now become a meme) about all that’s happening. There is no reason for anyone to pay attention anymore because it’s all talk. Collins has become her own joke.
When it gets right down to it, Susan Collins votes hard red Republican every time. During Trump’s first impeachment, the one in which she voted not guilty, she walked in front of a bank of cameras and said that she was sure that Trump learned a lesson in the process. She was right. Trump learned that he was untouchable and could do whatever he wanted, including firing all the witnesses against him and initiate an attempted coup.
Senator Collins appeared on CNN this morning in front of Jake Tapper. She went out of character this morning with respect to investigating what happened on January 6th. She was not a moderate, she was an unapologetic MAGA and disappointed that Pelosi kicked Jordan and Banks off the investigative committee. Collins never mentioned that the House was forced to form an independent committee because Republicans rejected an entirely 50-50 investigation bi-partisan investigation. Collins knows this, she is playing the pro-wrestling game that we’ve heard so much about of late. It is all fake, her position is fake, it is meant to assuage Republican leaders also watching television this morning.
Nothing Susan Collins says should be taken seriously or literally.

Once again, Collins is proving that beneath that “oh-so-reasonable-moderate-exterior” lies a hardcore MAGA that must win in purple Maine. Twitter is absolutely sick of her.
Jake Tapper tells Susan Collins that, "Jim Jordan could be a material witness" for speaking to the Former Guy on January 6th, which is 𝙒𝙃𝙔 Speaker Pelosi vetoed him from the select committee.
Susan Collins' reply is that many people talked to the Former Guy that day. Ok 🙃

As long as I live, I will never forgive Susan Collins for allowing Brett Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court Justice. Anyone with me?

For the 100th time, here’s a reminder that Susan Collins is not a moderate. She is just as radical as the rest of them. https://t.co/VBXBryclCm

Susan Collins calls the Jan. 6 select committee "partisan," says "I do not think it was right" for Pelosi to block Jim Jordan and Jim Banks from serving on it.
On Jordan potentially being a material witness: "Well, there were many communications with President Trump that day." pic.twitter.com/R392tFfmBT

Susan Collins has dropped her paper-thin mask entirely. She’s in favor of putting insurrectionist treason co-conspirator Jim Jordan on the Jan. 6 commission. https://t.co/gv17YVVuUY

REMINDER: Susan Collins helped put Brett Kavanaugh on SCOTUS and she thought the former guy learned his lesson, so her disappointment with Jim Jordan not being on the 1/6 Committee is totally on brand.

Susan Collins being troubled by Nancy Pelosi rejecting Jim Jordan’s nomination to the January 6th Commission, while, at the same time, expressing concern for the conflict of interest posed by material witnesses serving on it is PEAK SUSAN COLLINS.

Susan Collins must think that Jim Jordan "learned his lesson".🙄

Oh jeez! 🙄 Susan Collins should never use the words “I think” in a sentence. It is an oxymoron! pic.twitter.com/Lrjpp7BWaw
