Susan Collins criticizes Trump's 'painful' treatment of protesters

Source: The Hill

BY ALEXANDER BOLTON - 06/02/20 02:58 PM EDT

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Tuesday called out President Trump for what she thought was his ďunsympatheticĒ handling of peaceful protesters who were dispersed with tear gas on Monday evening so that Trump could pose with a bible in front of St. Johnís church.

She said it was "painful" to watch U.S. Park Police and National Guard troops fire tear gas and forcefully push through a large group of peaceful protesters to clear a way for Trump.

Collins, who faces a competitive reelection race in a state where Trump is expected to lose the popular vote, said Trumpís actions were not what the country needs at a time of widespread racial tensions and high unemployment, which have added to the anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

ďTo me at a time like this, the president ought to be trying to calm the nation, pledge to right historic wrongs and be a steady influence. I donít think he was last night,Ē Collins told reporters when asked about the presidentís controversial walk across H Street between Lafayette Park and St. Johnís episcopal church, which had been partially burned over the weekend by rioters.

29. "his "unsympathetic" handling of peaceful protesters"

Ya mean, like gassing them and shooting rubber bullets at them for the little unpunished yet cRiminal (since 7 decades because, hey, his white-supremacist daddy had lotsa moniieees...) to stage his pathetically fake photo-op is being not kind and sympathetic to them?

At the same moment he claimed to be "an ally of" them in the rose garden microphone with sounds of bomb bursts and shooting rounds??

Are you... dumb? EnableR...

You'd better be "concerned" that the next administration doesn't take the opportunity to treat you as this administration has treated the protesters.

40. So much outrage!!!!

I could literally sense her hands shaking and blood pressure rising from her intense anger and frustration! She must really be agonizing deeply over our nation on the brink of destruction!

Or not.

It amazes me how ANYBODY elected to serve our country under oath can allow this to go on.

Sound palatable to your base of fools, faux concern for actual people's needs, then vote again against it?

Publicly tell us how CONCERNED you are and do that quake for sympathy on cue, she acts dirt, but is just barely 60?

I did some basic research.
