Never Trump Senator picked a fight with Sean Hannity and instantly regretted it

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.

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.

  1. I think if I were Sasse I would sit down and shut up. He attitude did not work for Flake and thank goodness Flake is gone. He was nothing more than a spoiler.

    • Ben Sasse is a gutless, dishonable, Republican who actually is a RINO who has no interest in the advancement of conservatism. He’s also a loser who is getting pitched by the people of Nebraska because he’s so unreliable.

  2. Whe are the good people of Nebraska going to realize that there are no center right or center left politicians anymore. If you vote for a democrat you’re voting for a communist. Most people in the state are conservatives. I have news for Nebraskans. The democrat party as they knew it DIED with John Kennedy.

    • must agree with you took a little while for me to get it because i was to busy taking care of my family. then one day i got smart and changed my way came to the fork in the road and went right instead of left wow what a difference he he .its a shame that so many have not taken the time also to learn .OLD VET

We need America back!

    • AMEN to that Rick. So sad that folk are so duped by the demoncRats. They have been blinded by freebies. Deep state God will deal with them PERIOD!

    • I agree SASSE IS A BIG PART OF THE SWAMP. hE THINKS HIS POO DOESN’T STINK. NEEDS TO BE PUT IN HIS PLACE AND NOT SEEK RE-ELECTION LIKE THE CRAZY RHINO FROM ARIZONA CALLED A- FLAKE.THEY ARE SO INFATUATED WITH THEIR OWN BELIEF OF SELF THEY CAN’T HEAR WHAT THE MAJORITY OF GOD FEARING INDIVIDUALS WANT AND NEED.

      • Flake, Romney, Sasse, all members of the Demoncommiecratshariaideological party and all should have their heads separated from their shoulders in a Guillotine for betraying the people by completely disregarding the principles of which our Constitutional Republic is built upon.

  4. Sadly, just when we get rid of Flake the snake, Utah decides to replace him with the childish, resentful, hateful Mittens, Romney. Here we go again, another whining rino doing more damage than the Demoncraps.

  5. I’m very busy! I’m almost thirty years old pro-life and pro-family relatively young woman and mother of six minors, six small children. I will never stay home on Election Day. I will go vote on this Election Day in November sixth too. I don’t vote pro-abortion and pro-homosexual Democrats and Republicans. I vote every election against these murders of the unborn children, sodomy, feminism, gender ideology and the Democratic Party. I’m going to vote and will vote only just for pro-life and pro-family Republicans. The so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra-leftist Neomarxist party. The so-called Democratic Party wants ultra-leftist Neomarxist dictatorship in the USA! Politicians and supporters of the Democratic Party are Neomarxist extremists and the so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra-leftist Neomarxist party. Their pro-abortion and pro-sodomy agenda isn’t the agenda of the American people. This is agenda of the Democratic Communist Party U.S.A. and they will say or do anything to obstruct the Trump Administration. The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want stand for anything that will harm the country in their quest to transform the United States into a totalitarian communist state. President Donald Trump is doing wonderful job of trying to do his best to clean up the mess of last administration! Remember this, a vote for a Democratic Party is a vote for ultra-leftist pro-abortion and pro-sodomy Communism. Go Trump! Vote Trump! Vote pro-life and pro-family Republicans!! The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want to control your life, tell you what you need to hear, what to do and tell you how to live. Unfortunately some people are just too stupid to know the truth and their ignorant gullable minds are of the sheep nature, being more than willing to be led to a slaughter by the filthy dirty ultra-leftist wing ultra-liberal Neomarxist dogs. Please everybody, vote Republican and save this good Country! God bless America, the American People,the pro-life and pro-family Republicans! God bless President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for always doing what is best for the American people!

  6. When I first saw you on TV, Sasse, I thought what a good impressive young leader in the Republican party. Was I ever wrong! Flake #2! I was born and raised in Kansas, so i learned many of those Mid-Western values. I believed that you also held those precious values. It appears that I was wrong.

      • Hey Denis: I’m a Veteran of the USAF, (SAC) during the Cuban Missile crisis and Veitnam War and a registered Republican. For a so called Republican Senator to call me angry, he’s correct, I’m angry at people like him who hate people like us. Any Veteran that buys his book should send it back and demand a refund. Meanwhile, he should keep watching CNN or MSNCBC the real problem for real Americans.

        • CNN and liberal news works this way. The same as you heard or even might of been a part of in elementary school. You get 3 or 4 kids to say the same thing so as to pull a prank or Con on someone. You get enough to say the same thing, it becomes more beliveable. So you prank that kid to believing something and they do it or whatever the set up is about. CNN i can’t watch at all anymore because I see this all day long. Never facts, proof, evidence is necessary or needed. They actually say for proof we will talk to…., which is another liberal saying the same thing. No evidence is ever necessary to liberals. Even more so, they never ask or question the liberal media and what is told to them. They will not research for the truth either. It is just so simple to believe the BS told to them. The fantasy and make believe liberal stories is all it ever is. They refuse to use FREEDOM to actually check for the truth themselves. If they do, get this-they go to other liberal media! Which they get told the exact same thing and think it is true ! They can’t go outside of their liberal box as FREEDOM allows us to do. The same exact thing was done by Hitler, Castro, Stalin, to name a few who took over what was rather a free country before them the same way. You take over the media and you tell what you want or not for your agenda. Something done in elementary school and you should of learned this tactic back then. It is why I always try to force these liberals who leave their BS here to prove what they say. They can’t do it. However I have had a couple who gave me a link to a web site for their proof and evidence. It was a liberal chat room web site ! You wouldn’t believe the BS told. I saw a couple guys write garbage and the LIBS went right to them both to want to get more of this ! Neither of the two had to show proof- they just said more BS ! I then saw a couple of these clown LIBS write their BS I just saw invented in that LIB room told like on a message-comment site just like this. I nailed them both. It is funny yet stupid to see that these LIBS have nothing on Trump so they have to use BS they invent ! An intellegent person would realize HEY- where is the fACTS -evidence- proof ?! CNN is losing viewers each raatings period. So people do wise up that realize CNN is total BS liberal agenda without anything to back up their claims except another LIB to say the same thing ! LIBS would and do make lame Investigators and Detectives.

  7. Did he include Jimmy Fallon and S,cobert in these comments? I guess not as they are both anti Republican politihumour shows S Myers also. He must not watch late nite tv, mummy said its way past his bedtime.

  8. It has always disappointed me to no end that that the great northern plains states of the US periodically an inexplicably elect these leftists. My home state of SD has produced two of the worst, Tom Daschle and George McGovern. ND gave us Hedi Hedicamp, and Montana has also produced a couple in my lifetime. Generally the folks in these states are reasonable and own-to-earth types, yet they allow themselves to get lied to and suckered at election time. I’m afraid Mr. Sasse has slipped into that elite group of grievance propelled politicians, the worst of the worst! God I hope he goes away next election cycle. I’d like to see him join Jeff Flake, the guy who folded in the face of the shrill and Stalinist “red guards” just before the vote on judge K. tok place. Not exactly profiles in courage…

      • For the most part, Republicans (of which I am one of them) are composed of caring, loving, trusting, GULLIBLE, SHORT SIGHTED, AND FORGIVING PEOPLE! Sadly this also evolves to becoming just plain STUPID! To really understand this transition we have to remember, ignorance can be cured by becoming EDUCATED. Dumb is cured when we learn to speak and communicate. STUPID directly related to making choices in life. Good choices= NOT STUPID, continually making bad choices= REALLY STUPID. The only cure is to remember our national history. WHAT I’VE LEARNED IN 80 YEARS. DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR OR READ. DO YOUR DEEP RESEARCH. AND, AT THIS TIME, NEVER VOTE FOR ANY DEMONRAT! NEBRASKA REPUBLICANS, IF A REPUBLICAN VOTES LIKE A DEMONRAT, TALKS LIKE A DEMONRAT, HE/SHE IS A DEMONRAT. VOTE REPUBLICAN!

  9. We as republicans judge according to content of character and fruits of labor. Mr Sasse, your duplicitous character is not worthy of a position in our government, and the fruits of your labor are very much spoiled and rotting. You are truly a disappointment to all honest American people.

    • Right. Elect democrats and we all get FREE health-care; FREE college tuition; OPEN BORDERS so we can empty Central America. How to pay for it all????? You mean we HAVE TO PAY!!!

      • If you want to be live in a tent and be homeless, vote democratic, 500,000 in blue states are on the streets.
        Google it and see..

      • Where can we go when there is nothing left to “give”? Why don’t the people that want freedom fight to change their own countries not try to take over ours? We have enough of a fight trying to keep our Government following the LAWS! Right is still right and wrong is wrong no matter who you are or where you live!

    • Stupid ass! If the Demorats take permanent control of this nation as they have in states like California there will BE no America! This will become just another 3rd world banana republic, with an authoritarian government that answers to no one! If that’s the kind of country you want to live in, move your sorry butt to Venezuela!

    • Sasse may be a part of that “No Labels” group. (Not for sure on that) But they are always preaching we must be Americans first…reach across the aisle…work together. And he sounds just like that. Anyway…if the house has been set on fire (by the other side per say) it’s not time to talk it over with the folks across the aisle who are saying “let it burn”. Nope, it’s time to rescue the folks out of the house and then… put the fire out!

    • Ok, great. Let’s get back to the good ol-days with North Korea expanding it’s nuclear weapons and lobbing missles over the country’s in the Pacific. Check people who live in Hawaii. They love Trump now.

  10. All the more reason that McCaskill, Donnelly, Machen, Nelson, Heitkamp and Testor need to be replaced. With 57 Senate seats, the undo influence of rinos like Sasse, Romney, Collins and Murkowski will be somewhat ameliorated.

  11. I detest dishonesty, the same kind shown by Elizabeth Warren when she lied about being a Native American to improve her professional possibilities.

    If Sasse and his other rino’s DETEST Republican concepts, they should just CHANGE political parties. This is done periodically by politicians.

    At least it is honest. Frankly, this will drive even MORE people away from Democrats, which is ironic as hell.

    This same dishonesty was used against Kavanaugh. All that was necessary for the Democrats to say to Judge Kavanaugh during the confirmation hearings was this:

    “I represent a large Democrat constituency. I fear you will overturn RVW. You may be a good person and a good judge but I cannot vote for you.”

    I think most Americans would have found THAT reasonable and honest. They didn’t vote for him anyway. WHY smear his character with lies?

    Sanjosemike (no longer in CA)

    • They must continue to murder children in the womb legally, or they won’t know what to do with themselves. They don’t get it. God hates it. They know no God. The rivers run red with innocent blood. We are under harsh judgement for it. Those profiting from selling body parts will rot in hell…and all of them.

  12. Sissy Sasse is a Republican in name only. He might as well admit it, change his party affiliation to D and leave us to our work at hand.

  13. Funny — I never got that feeling from watching Hannity and I watch him almost nightly. Sounds to me like we have another rino who needs to be replaced with a true Conservative.

    • We are beginning to wonder just how many Republicans are with America or not. I guess we just have to keep hoping that eventually those that are against Americans will find themselves packing their bags and staying at home after the election. In one way it is a Blessing as people are beginning to understand that there are few Politicians who are totally honest. Most are not. We have a lot in Colorado who claim they are for the Taxpayers, but they fail to stand up and be counted. Found that out when Obama was in Charge.

      • Audry Jane…sing it, angel, thank you for speaking the God’s honest truth!
        Our gorgeous state of Colorado became utterly “owned” by corrupt DemonRats during past decade of massive voter fraud schemes implemented ever since 2008 election by shady, corrupt leftists politicians. Sadly we see same attempts being made in other once great great western states. California and Oregon were utterly ruined by insane DemonRat corruption,then, Conservative voices+votes completely ailenced in Colorado and Nevada during last administration, now, same tacticts being used to get DemonRats in control of more gorgeous Consevative western and southern states. Trump is a true Independent who used mostly weak and corruoted GOP to get in there and drain that disgusting swamp in DC.Americans praying constantly and preparing ourselves, We the People, are awake, aware and ready to stand strong and fearless with our duly elected president,and our House Freedom Caucus members and any incoming true Conservative candidares, no lookung back now, must rid our government of corrupt, weak and dishonest people like Sasse, Flake and so many other spineless idiots and liars from both parties who do not even deserve to live in America because they are too weak and stupud to care or realuze they are willingly handing over our great nation to the foces of pure evil and corruption.

  14. Ben Sasse is a self proclaimed psychologist. He can read the minds of everyone but himself. He is so fickle he is astounding. I do not believe that Nebraska sent him to Washington to be their mental health professional. I think they sent him there to legislate and to make a difference. He appears to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Personally, I find him totally untrustworthy.

      • I am beginning to think the only way we are going to straighten out our government is to have another ‘tea party.’ Except this time put all the politicians on a cruise
        ship, send it 100 miles out in the ocean and then pull the plug. Then start over with people who will understand they WORK FOR US, or get out!

        • our president Donald Trump said what her was going to do when he ran for president. I looks like he has done exactly what he promised when he ran for president. You all show me another politician that promises you something and when they get into office They never give you what they said they would. Go Trump Make America Great again

  15. You want to fix DC???? ITS EASY!!!
    NEVER EVER vote for an incumbent!!
    WE make the term limits by VOTING NOT THEM …. crying for them to make a law to do it will NEVER COME!!! There you go problem fixed…😁

    • It’s a great concept but easier said than done. When your only choices are 1 repub and 1 demoSCUM — there seems to be no good solution because I will never ever in my lifetime vote for another demoSCUM. Unless we put someone new and beat the incumbent in the primaries — which might work.

      • Very true. These RINOs need to be tossed out during the primaries and replaced with viable real conservatives.That is the only way we can be rid of them.

    • They won’t vote for term limits and most of America is just looking the other direction. They must breath different air than we do here in America. You vote them in and then they are like a Skunk after that. They stink and they have a white stripe down there backs and they forget that its us who pays the bills.

    • Sounds good, but if the alternative is to vote for a Democrat, you will be fixing the constitution. Getting rid of that pesky bill of rights is their main goal.

  16. Article begins with : “The Nebraska Senator schemes to undermine the President at every turn.”
    Sasse is undermining the American people with his dislike of the President. That’s a personal problem that he needs to learn to deal with. It’s all about the good of the people not your ego and hurt feelings.

    • They vote themselves a raise of $3000 and then wonder if they shouldn’t get more.
      Trump stopped that one in its tracks. That really made them angry.

  17. I’m almost thirty years old pro-life and pro-family relatively young woman and mother of six minors, six small children. I will never stay home on Election Day. I will go vote on this Election Day in November sixth too. I don’t vote pro-abortion and pro-homosexual Democrats and Republicans. I vote every election against these murders of the unborn children, sodomy, feminism, gender ideology and the Democratic Party. I’m going to vote and will vote only just pro-life and pro-family Republicans. The so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra-leftist Neomarxist party. The so-called Democratic Party wants ultra-left Neomarxist dictatorship in the USA! Politicians and supporters of the Democratic Party are Neomarxist extremists and the so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra-leftist Neomarxist party. Their pro-abortion and pro-sodomy agenda isn’t the agenda of the American people. This is agenda of the Democratic Communist Party U.S.A. and they will say or do anything to obstruct the Trump Administration. Remember this, a vote for a Democratic Party is a vote for ultra-leftist pro-abortion and pro-sodomy Communism. Go Trump! Vote Trump! Vote pro-life and pro-family Republicans!! The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want to control your life, tell you what you need to hear, what to do and tell you how to live. Unfortunately some people are just too stupid to know the truth and their ignorant gullable minds are of the sheep nature, being more than willing to be led to a slaughter by the filthy dirty ultra-left wing ultra-liberal Neomarxist dogs.

  18. RINOs think they are conservative enough, but they are. They were the REAL reason why we haven’t protect our border for many years.

    And Trump came. We saw the true color in many so-called conservatives. We conquered them thru the vote.

    No compromise with the Democrat Party. Or we can compromise them to return to the original setting what we once were: American greatness through the power of traditional families. They should see enough failed policies, created by them that they can’t change the nature.

    By the way, when is Sasse’s next election?

  19. If the conversation contains hate, race, violence, or call to violence, unnamed sources or unproven evidence…VOTE NO.

      • Sasse, Flake, Kasuck of Ohio, McLame(the total liar and idiot) all will be found in HELL the sooner the better. They are disgrace to the Republican Party, America, their race, but especially to themselves and their so-called family…who are mostly gay men.

      • They aren’t supposed to be getting paid at all, they “volunteer” for the position to “represent” us. It was by no ways or means meant to be a full paying job, they voted themselves pay and benefits without the peoples approval. It was never voted on or approved. Get rid of them all and go back to the way it was intended.
