Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) read a series of “mean tweets,” in a hilarious video published Thursday by the Independent Journal Review.
Sasse publicly stated his opposition to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign last month and received some online blowback as a result.
In the video, Sasse read some tweets criticising him — typos and all.
“Ben Sasse is a joke looking for a punchline, why a maroon!” Sasse said.
“Ben Sasse, can anyone believe this bozo is a US senator?” the senator added.
“Why does media allow biblical donkey hole Ben Sasse to continue trolling hashtag-Trump?” he continued.
After Sasse criticised Trump on Fox News, the Republican front-runner tweeted that Sasse was “totally ineffective” and said he “looks more like a gym rat than a US senator.” Sasse had argued that Trump would not respect the Constitution and campaigned on behalf of several other candidates.
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel famously asks celebrities to read “mean tweets” about themselves.
