Trump: ‘Lightweight’ Doug Jones ‘A Do Nothing Stiff’
In a tweet on Sunday, President Donald Trump bashed Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) for voting this past week to convict and remove the president on both impeachment articles.
Trump, of course, was acquitted by a wide margin this week and remains in office.
“So good to see that Republicans will be winning the Great State of Alabama Senate Seat back, now that lightweight Senator [Doug Jones] cast a partisan vote for the Impeachment Hoax,” Trump stated.
Polling has shown that Jones will be in an even weaker position to be reelected in November given his votes on impeachment.
“The Constitution doesn’t require a poll in which to vote,” Jones commented on his decision to vote against the majority of his constituents on impeachment. “It requires a lot of due diligence and a lot of work. I don’t do things based on polling.”
“I understand there will be people that disagree with this, but there will be people who do agree with it. You can’t get 100% on anything,” he added.
In his Sunday tweet, Trump concluded about Jones, “Thought his boss, Cryin’ Chuck, would have forced him to vote against the Hoax. A Do Nothing Stiff!”
