Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee teams with Dems against Trump

Sen. Mike Lee, a Utah Republican, threw a temper tantrum worthy of a three-year-old following a lengthy Wednesday White House briefing on Iran, in which the senators were requested to be circumspect in their discussions of the issue. The words he used to describe the request were, “Insulting, unacceptable, unconstitutional and un-American.” 

Lee bizarrely stated the Trump administration’s handling of the conflict so far has moved him to support a Democrat-led effort to rein in President Donald Trump’s authority to “take the nation to war.” Lee is partnering with Hillary Clinton’s former running mate Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat.

In fact, President Trump’s decisive actions in authorizing the airstrike targeting brutal murderer Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, had exactly the opposite effect, deescalating a war scenario. During his lifetime, the ruthless Soleimani was celebrated as a “living martyr” by the Ayatollah Khamenei.

Uncharacteristically, Utah’s other senator Mitt Romney, parted company with Lee saying, “The president took action, which I think was effective in removing a terrible person who has done terrible things,” Romney said, referring to Soleimani. “And there’s great upside from that action.”

It’s worth remembering Lee, like his doppelganger former single-term Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, said he voted for independent presidential candidate and co-religionist Evan McMullin in protest of Donald Trump in 2016.

Mistakenly regarded as a conservative, Lee was reportedly on a short list being considered to fill the U. S. Supreme Court vacancy that resulted with the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Federal appellate judge Brett Kavanaugh was ultimately nominated and confirmed for the position after enduring a despicable, though baseless character assassination by leftist extremists who wanted to stall the appointment and maintain the court’s Democrat majority.

If renegade Mike Lee ever wears a robe, it will be the one he dons after his shower.

    Mike Lee is a shameless, attention seeking buffoon. Under these circumstances, to focus attention on himself is reprehensible.

  2. Patriot Mom says:

    The fact that this pig-faced jerk is partnering with Tim Kaine against our conservative president should be enough to send him packing when his next election rolls around. We can only hope the people of Utah show him the door.

    • Kathy says:

      Sadly Utah probably won’t, after all, Utah voted for Romney. These 2 men are 2 peas in a pod.

        You got that right!

        Utah was a reliably conservative state. Now it’s a sanctuary state and the illegals who have been welcomed to swell the church’s pews and coffers are voting…..and voting Democrat. The state’s political future is no longer assured.

        I have a lot of very unhappy relatives in Utah.

    After reading this post, I attempted to do some independent research on Sen. Mike Lee. Wikipedia took me directly to a website for another Mike Lee, identified as a rodeo bull rider. Obviously, one bull rider is interchangeable with another.
