Even Senator Jack Reed thinks Trump is nuts and he says, “I don’t say that lightly.”

Reed and Sen. Sue Collins (R-Maine) caught on hot mike

Courtesy of WaPo: 

After Reed praises Collins’s leadership of the hearing, she laments the administration’s handling of spending. 

“I swear, [the Office of Management and Budget] just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” Collins says. “With no measurement, no thinking about it, no metrics, no nothing. It’s just incredibly irresponsible.” 

“Yes,” Reed replies. “I think — I think he’s crazy,” apparently referring to the president. “I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.” “I’m worried,” Collins replies. 

“Oof,” Reed continues. “You know, this thing — if we don’t get a budget deal, we’re going to be paralyzed.” 

“I know,” Collins replies. 

“[Department of Defense] is going to be paralyzed, everybody is going to be paralyzed,” Reed says. 

“I don’t think he knows there is a [Budget Control Act] or anything,” Collins says, referring to a 2011 law that defines the budget process. 

“He was down at the Ford commissioning,” Reed says, referring to President Trump’s weekend event launching a new aircraft carrier, “saying, ‘I want them to pass my budget.’ Okay, so we give him $54 billion and then we take it away across the board which would cause chaos.”

“Right,” Collins replies.

Collins then went on to bring up  remarks made by Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold suggesting that if she were a man he would challenge her to "step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.”

“Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asks. 

“I know,” Reed replies. “Trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ‘Cause you could beat the shit out of him.”

“Well, he’s huge,” Collins replies. “And he — I don’t mean to be unkind, but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable.” 

“Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this Playboy bunny?” she continues, referring to an infamous photo of Farenthold. 

This by the way is the picture Collins is referring to:

That's Congressman (let that sink in) Farenthold on the far right, of course.
So yes, Susan Collins COULD easily beat the shit out of him.

Just so you know Farenthold and Collins have already apologized to each other for their remarks, but let's face it the toothpaste is out of the tube concerning what they really think about each.
And we also know what some in the Senate secretly think about the guy now occupying the Oval Office.
