President Trump led Sen. Ben Sasse on Saturday in a series of tweets after the Nebraska Republican released the president in a recent call to constituencies and called him a “TV-obsessed narcissistic individual.”
Trump called “Little Ben” the “less effective” Republican in the Senate and “a man who really does not have what it takes to be good.”
“Little Ben is responsible for the Republican Party, and a disgrace to the Great State of Nebraska. Other than that, he is just a great man!”, Trump tweeted on Saturday.

Trump hacked Sasse as a “RINO” (“Republican in Name Only”) who only acted “nice” to Trump to win his main GOP, but continued his “stupid and disgusting ways.”
Trump says Sasse is “going down the same incurable path” as former Trump critics in the Senate, former GOP Sens. Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, who retired in 2019.
“Both Senators became completely unelected, unable to approach the victory of their primaries, and decided to quit politics and the pleasant” RETIRE, “Trump tweeted.”[Sasse] maybe next, or maybe Republicans should find a new and more viable candidate? “
The Twitter tussle against Sasse came shortly after the senator’s reported comments about Trump.
Sasse, who has never ridden a Trump train, did not hold back a call with Nebraskans recently when a subordinate asked him why he criticized Trump that way.

Sasse released the nearly nine-minute diatribe, first published by the Washington Examiner, saying the commander-in-chief “kissed the butt of the dictators,” “sold our allies,” oppressed the women and “spent like a drunken sailor. “
Sasse said it looks “likely” that Trump will be defeated in November and that Trump could overthrow the Senate with him in a “blue tsunami.”
“What do any of us think that selling someone narcissistic individual on TV to an American citizen is a good idea? It’s not a good idea,” Sasse said. “I think we’re looking at the barrel. of a blue tsunami and we should touch the Senate and that is what focused on me. “
Trump on Saturday denied Sasse’s career assessment in a four-word tweet: “GIANT RED WAVE COMING!”

Sasse is for re-election this year. In May, he immediately defeated a major GOP challenge Matt Innis, who made an issue of Sasse’s earlier criticism of Trump. On November 3, he confronted Democrat Chris Janicek, who refused to stop amid a sexting scandal, a written campaign from Democrat Preston Love Jr. and Libertarian Gene Siadek.
