‘They’re laughing at you’: Dem lawmaker says Republicans are using Trump like a ‘cheap mistress’

Congressional Democrats are trying to drive a wedge between Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss the ongoing negotiations on the Build Back Better infrastructure bill, but first he discussed a new ad taken out by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee highlighting the distance some GOP candidates are trying to put between themselves and the twice-impeached one-term president.

"We want to point out something to Donald Trump," Maloney said, "which is, Donald, they're laughing at you on Capitol Hill. They use you like some cheap mistress for their purposes, then they laugh at you behind their back. They run away from you when they try to talk to voters in swing districts. We think the former president should know that the Republican Party is using him to raise money but making fun of him behind his back and trying to distance themselves."

"Look at what [Glenn] Youngkin is trying to do in Virginia, trying to have it both ways," Maloney added, "and he really isn't invited to their party because they know they can't justify their support."
