Skip to comments.Collins: Bannon's rhetoric about McConnell 'not helpful'
Posted on 10/15/2017 11:15:03 AM PDT by Mariner
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday that former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon's rhetoric about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is not helpful.
This is not helpful or appropriate at all. Obviously Mr. Bannon has the right to support whomever he wants to support, Collins told ABCs This Week.
But I think his rhetoric is exactly what the American people are tired of. They dont want this hyperpartisanship. They want us to work together and they want us to get things done.
Bannon has vowed to challenge the Republican establishment in the 2018 midterms and put up primary challengers against GOP senators.
Collins slammed Bannons over the top rhetoric about McConnell as not helpful.

No entity in modern history has show itself to be more self righteous and hypocritical.
Certainly none here could claim affinity for this cluster of sub-humanity.
“But I think his rhetoric is exactly what the American people are tired of. They dont want this hyperpartisanship. They want us to work together and they want us to get things done.
Whatever she paid the consultancy for that line, it was a fraud.
She should ask for her money back.
RINOs like Collins are what the American people are tired of.
susan, susan, susan.... when are you going to be intelligent enough to avoid cameras!?!?
“Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)............”
Speaking of “NOT helpful”.
How do these brain dead RINOS get elected time and time again? Collins and Pelosi are senile and should retire immediately.
Has this dimwit been asleep the last 1 1/2 years? We need the Alzheimer Patients in Congress made PUBLIC TODAY!!!
Collins is not helpful to the Republican Conservative caucus.
Refusing to vote for a bill that supports Trump's agenda because they want to deny Trump the success out of personal animosity defeats the purpose of having a Senate.
This behavior would not be tolerated if the states could appoint their Senators, and refuse to return them in six years if they go rogue.
How are confirmations of Trump's nominations coming along, Susan? Who is in charge of that calendar? m-m-m-m-m-m-m-Mitch.
Shut up, Susan...and don’t bother with the sandwich. I’m sure you’d screw that up, as well.
And all of the time I thought Collins and McConnell were not helpful! who knew!
I don’t know what is much more “unhelpful” than Collins’s idea of what is “unhelpful”.
I’m trying to think of a reason why I would care about her opinion.
Well, maybe, but I can guarantee you that I'm fed up with the GOP not doing ANYTHING for the people who gave you the House in 2010, the Senate in 2012, and the WH in 2016 and you have given us absolutely NOTHING. You quibbling do-nothings need to find a new job and I'm going to do everything I can to see that it happens.
It continues to amaze me how off course the GOPe is.
They haven’t a single clue.
McConnell, Ryan, Collins, McCain...
These four people are blocking the restitution of the nation all by themselves.
Susan Collins is right. Bannon’s comments were not helpful to her, and not helpful to McConnell nor helpful to McCain.
And certainly not helpful to specific incumbent fellow travelers up in 2018 for rehire by the voters.
Collins confirms again that RINOs are unwilling to get the real message. They are as politically tone-deaf and the Democrats.
Trump’s election was a message to Washington that most citizens of this nation are fed up and are demanding change. Not phony lip service. Not business as usual. Not sound bites.
When we say we want Obamacare repealed, that’s what we mean.
When we say we want a border wall and a pro-America immigration policy that includes enforcement, that’s what we mean.
We want action. Not words.
If the RINOs want to keep their jobs, they need to announce they finally get this and are changing their ways, and then DO IT!
Otherwise be prepared to leave office. If you won’t do the job you were elected to do, we will find someone who will.
