Ben Sasse is one of the top Never Trump Republicans in Washington, D.C.
The Nebraska Senator schemes to undermine the President at every turn.
But he made the biggest mistake of his life when he picked this fight with Sean Hannity.
Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) has done nothing for conservatives since going to Washington, D.C.
He’s led no fight. He’s authored no conservative legislation.
All he does is going on cable news and social media to bash President Trump.
Sasse released a new book entitled “Them: Why we Hate Each Other – and How to Heal” and he claimed Sean Hannity is to blame for Democrats and Republicans being at each other’s throats.
The Daily Caller reports:
The book, “Them: Why We Hate Each Other — and How to Heal,” states that Hannity’s shows are “not to promote a particular conservative agenda, or to encourage American patriotism, or even to offer coherent arguments against liberalism,” but “his core cause is to rage.”
To Sasse, according to The Daily Beast, Hannity’s shows are “polititainment” that boils down to one concept: “Liberals are evil, you’re a victim, and you should be furious.” The Nebraska senator also characterized his interactions with Hannity as “unusually unpleasant.”
“Hannity tells a lot of angry, isolated people what they want to hear,” wrote Sasse in the upcoming book, according to The Daily Beast, “And he has the delivery down to an art form. We’d all be better off, as would our communities, if we understood the game he and his colleagues—on both sides of the spectrum—are playing.”
Hannity did not take kindly to Sasse using him as a punching bag to boost his reputation with the liberal media.
He fired off a tweet calling Sasse a con artist because when Sasse was running for office in 2014 he begged Hannity for air time.
.@SenSasse Also we can talk about how you sucked up to me during your election, and why I know you are a con artist and phony. I know you desperately want access to my 600 amazing talk radio stations and to the number one show in all of Cable news.

Ben Sasse is shaping up to be the next Jeff Flake – a CNN “conservative” who defines their ideology to how colorfully they attack President Trump and his allies.
