President Trump, as I’ve said before, was probably the most maligned, undermined, and misunderstood president in our history. Here is another example of what he faced while serving. When you see this list of notables it’s a wonder he was able to accomplish as much as he did.
Carl Bernstein said, he was “not violating any pledge of journalistic confidentially” when he named 21 GOP Senators that have regularly expressed contempt for President Trump. His information, he said, came from “colleagues, staff members, lobbyists [and] White House aides”. Then he named names.
They were: Rob Portman (Ohio), Lamar Alexander (Tennessee), Ben Sasse (Nebraska), Roy Blunt (Missouri), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), John Cornyn (Texas), John Thune (South Dakota), Mitt Romney (Utah), Mike Braun and Todd Young (Indiana), Tim Scott (South Carolina), Rick Scott and Marco Rubio (Florida), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Richard Burr (North Carolina), Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania), Martha McSally (Arizona), Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts (Kansas) and Richard Shelby (Alabama).
