Senators Susan Collins & Jack Reed Caught on Hot Mic: Trump is ‘Crazy’, House Rep ‘So Unattractive It’s Unbelievable’

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins was caught on a hot mic on Tuesday on Capitol Hill, and her comments about the president and a House colleague who said he wanted to challenge her to a duel are just what you would imagine.

Susan, like most of us, is DONE with the craziness of Washington. Her conversation with Sen. Jack Reed from Rhode Island seems to reveal as much.

The best parts of the recording come at the end, when Collins talks about the House member who said he wanted to shoot her in a duel, but only if she was a man. Apparently, she saw a picture of him in duck PJs with a Playboy bunny! (scroll down for photo)

Here’s the transcript, as much of it as we can make out (from C-Span, the Washington Post, and other sources):

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

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

COLLINS: “I’m worried,”

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

COLLINS: “I know,”

REED: “[Department of Defense] is going to be paralyzed, everybody is going to be paralyzed,”

COLLINS: “I don’t think he knows there is a [Budget Control Act] or anything,”

COLLINS: “Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?”

REED: “I know, trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ‘Cause you could beat the s— out of him.”

COLLINS: “Well, he’s huge, 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?”

Collins was referring to Representative Blake Farenthold of Texas, who said that he would have challenged Collins to a duel if she were a man, over her opposition to proceeding to debate on the Senate version of President Donald Trump’s health care repeal vote.

Here’s the photo that she was referring to:
