Report: Trump Threatens GOP Senators, is a Complete Idiot

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump met with congressional Republicans today and it wasn’t exactly pretty if you’re a Republican. If you’re a Democrat, however, this is fan-fucking-tastic.

Trump reportedly threatened to start attacking Republican senators who do not fall in line behind him, including the likes of Senators Jeff Flake and Mark Kirk. Trump reportedly called Senator Kirk a “loser” and said Senator Flake would lose his seat this year.

That forced Senator Flake to give Trump the bad news.

Flake stood up to Trump by urging him to stop attacking Mexicans. Trump predicted that Flake would lose his reelection, at which point Flake informed Trump that he was not on the ballot this year, said the sources, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose details of the private meeting.

Whoops?

Trump’s meeting with House Republicans wasn’t quite as disastrous as his meeting with Senate Republicans, which is a very low or high bar, depending on your perspective, but he still managed to embarrass himself.

Another Republican in the meeting who declined to go on the record so he could speak candidly told TPM that Trump was asked pointedly if he would defend Article I of the Constitution.

“Not only will I stand up for Article One,” Trump enthusiastically stated, according to the member in the room. “I’ll stand up for Article Two, Article 12, you name it of the Constitution.

There is no Article 12.

I should say that while I disagree with Senator Kirk on almost every issue, calling him a “loser,” as Trump has, is not just childish; it’s beyond the pale. Kirk suffered a stroke and still managed to climb his way up the steps of the capital building. Trump would never do that.

    Trump is the perfect candidate for the party Flakey and Kirky have given their allegiance to. Just bend over that chair & keep a smile on your face, boys; this is what you get paid for.

    How long before Drumpf calls someone a “doodyhead”? I keep seeing him a Adam Sutler from “V for Vendetta”.

    • Aynwrong

      Same here.

  • Badgerite

    Because, of course he does. It’s Trump. What else would you expect?

  • Badgerite

    Truth is, if I were a member of Congress of any party, I would be concerned about The Trump Monster.
    All of his business ‘practices’ that at best skirt illegality and clearly show a disregard for the average working American and any American ethics, all of his dealings with and sympathies toward Russian money and interests, his lack of not only any understanding of policy issues but any belief that he would need to understand them, his tendency to berate and belittle others, his open flirtations with fascist ideology here and abroad. This is not a trust worthy man. I suspect he would have about as much regard for the interests or welfare of the country as he has demonstrated for the GOP. He is unfit to occupy the office of President of the United States. Props to George Will.

        LOL. But it’s not really funny because it is too accurate a portrayal.
        But…..Senator Sanders is ,,,,finally,,,, going to endorse Hilary Clinton.
        About ffffffing time. Trump really is NOT to be trusted. By anyone.
        Both major parties and anyone who values the constitution should endeavor to keep him as far away from any kind of real power as possible.

        • Victor the Crab

          Yeah, heard about that. And, like you said, about effin’ time. The question now becomes how will the last of the hardcore BernieBums, like HA Goodman, react to this?

          • Badgerite

            Good question. HA Goodman is hopeless. But may not all of them.

        • cleos_mom

          I recommend making popcorn for spectating the exploding heads both left and right when he does.

    Nancy LeTourneau this morning:

    The dilemma is that no matter what you do, Trump’s goal is to make you lose. If you cross him – as Republican Susana Martinez did – you get clobbered. And if you submit, you get clobbered. That’s because, in Donald Trump’s mind, he always has to be the winner and he has no respect for losers.

    Attacking Mark Kirk was as natural for Donald Trump as breathing is for the rest of us. He’s a schoolyard bully who didn’t grow up—he merely got older—and he still has a bully’s eye for vulnerability.

    It will be interesting to see how he handles being a loser.

      I’m guessing he’ll blame RINO’s and The Liberal Media.™

      • muselet

        Of course. The tantrum could be amusing to behold.

          One for the ages. If we’re really lucky, he’ll warn us all about the shape shifting lizard people.

        It just occurred to me yesterday that he almost certainly won’t give a concession speech on Election Night. The idea of a midnight tweet is a little on-the-nose, but it’ll be a statement, not a speech.

        • Aynwrong

          Of course. His ego would never allow it.

      • cleos_mom

        And the election was “rigged”. That’s the truly bipartisan word of the decade (for “I didn’t get what I wanted) if this year’s primary circus is any indication.

    • Victor the Crab

      He’ll always have his bumlicking minions in the Mainstream Media™ to help assist him in the face of ordinary people standing up to him, because THERE’S RATINGS TO BE MINED AND WE WANT THEM ALL! SO FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU!

      • muselet

        Come on, Victor, don’t hold back. Tell us how you really feel. ;^)
