Susan Collins returns to Twitter, and it goes disastrously for her

In the five days since Maine Senator Susan Collins gave a divisive and deranged speech announcing her support for alleged serial sexual assaulter Brett Kavanaugh, she’s continued to try to alienate as many people as possible. She’s gone on television and lied about Planned Parenthood. She’s dishonestly attacked her potential 2020 opponent Susan Rice. Now Collins is finally returning to Twitter – and let’s just say that it didn’t go well for her.

For the first time since announcing her vote, Susan Collins posted a new tweet today: “Great news that the Old Town mill has been purchased by ND Paper and hopes to have it up and running in a few months, creating more than 100 jobs.” Under different circumstances, it probably would have received a different response. But considering the backdrop of everything that’s happened, suffice it to say that most of the responses were not about the Old Town mill.

Erin Buckley fired back with this: “Shame on you. I never will forget your partisan divisive speech announcing your support for a SC justice who perjured himself many many times and now threatens our democratic republic. And is accused of multiple sexual assaults.” Another respondent stated the obvious: “Say goodbye to your seat when you’re up for re-election.” But this response may have summed it up best: “Susan. No one cares what you have to say. Not until you stand up and admit you lied during your 45 minutes.”
