Called Out

Republican senator calls out his own party: Your worship of Trump is ‘weird’


After Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse was “formally rebuked” by his state’s Republican party over his vote to impeach former President Donald Trump, he responded with a statement calling out his own party’s “weird” idolization of Trump.

“There are lots of good people involved in party activism, and I care about them. But most Nebraskans don’t think politics should be about the weird worship of one dude,” Sasse said according to the Omaha World-Herald.

According to the resolution put forward by Nebraska Republicans, Sasse’s vote to impeach Trump helped Democrats deny Trump “due process.”

“Senator Sasse’s condemnation of President Trump and his support for President Trump’s impeachment have been liberally used multiple times by Democrats as justification for a truncated impeachment process that denied the President due process,” the resolution read.

“The Nebraska Republican Party Central Committee expresses its deep disappointment and sadness with respect to the service of Senator Ben Sasse and calls for an immediate readjustment whereby he represents the people of Nebraska to Washington and not Washington to the people of Nebraska,” the resolution added.

Nebraska GOP’s state central committee stopped short of a formal censure, though the resolution said Sasse “stands rebuked.”
