    Senators mock Trump on hot mic

    Senators mock Trump on hot mic

    07/25/17 01:02 PM EDT

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) was caught on a hot mic on Tuesday expressing concern over President Trump's mental health and questioning his understanding of the budget process.

    In a conversation with Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), the Maine Republican said of the president's budget proposal that “whenever there was a grant, they just X-ed it out, with no metric, no thinking about it, no nothing. I mean it’s just incredibly irresponsible.”

    President Trump's budget proposal eliminated a slew of grants that provided welfare and social service support, such as the Community Development Block Grant.

    Reed responded to Collins by saying, of Trump: “He’s crazy.”Collins can be heard quietly saying, “I'm worried.”

    Reed, who is also the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, expressed concern about how failure to strike a spending deal would ultimately harm the defense budget.

    “If we don’t get a budget deal, we’re going to be paralyzed with DOD,” Reed says, referring to the Department of Defense.

    Without a new spending deal, the defense budget would top out at $549 billion for the next fiscal year because of the Budget Control Act (BCA), which imposed spending ceilings on agencies. That’s below current spending levels and more than $70 billion less than what has been approved by the House Budget Committee.

    “I don’t even think he knows that there is a BCA,” Collins says, before the two continue talking about recent appearances Trump made at the USS Gerald R. Ford, in which he called on Congress to pass a budget.

    The audio was streamed following the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development approved its spending bill for 2018, sending it to the full committee. Collins is the chairman of the committee, and Reed is the ranking member.

    Not surprising coming from Collins. She's nothing more than a poorly disguised liberal hiding out on the wrong side of the aisle.

    Agreed MW.

    Looking at her picture above and comparing it to her official photo one can see that she is not very honest or it is a testament to the fact that she has been there WAY TOO long. Perhaps it is time to return her to the ranks of "the people". Meow..
