Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was shredded for her signature fence-sitting and refusal to admonish President Donald Trump for refusing to accept the results of the 2020 election.
First, Collins called President-elect Joe Biden the "apparent" victor, before saying that Trump and others "have questions about the results in certain states."
"There is a process in place to challenge those results and, consistent with that process, the President should be afforded the opportunity to do so," Collins claimed. "I know that many are eager to have certainty right now. While we have a clear direction, we should continue to respect that process. I urge people to be patient. The process has not failed our country in more than 200 years, and it is not going to fail our country this year."
Collins spent the last four years being attacked for always refusing to speak out strongly against the president's behavior and, instead, expressing "concern." The "concern" became the source of mockery of Collins, who was never brave enough to speak out against the president and supported his agenda overwhelmingly in the Senate.
