    "I think he’s crazy" - U.S. senators caught on hot mic say they’re ‘worried’ about Trump

    “I swear, (the Office of Management and Budget) just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” Collins says. “With no measurement, no thinking about it, no metrics, no nothing. It’s just incredibly irresponsible.”

    “Yes,” Reed replies. “I think — I think he’s crazy,” apparently referring to the president. “I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.”

    “I’m worried,” Collins replies.

    “Oof,” Reed continues. “You know, this thing — if we don’t get a budget deal, we’re going to be paralyzed.”

    “I know,” Collins replies.

    “I don’t think he knows there is a (Budget Control Act) or anything,” Collins says, referring to a 2011 law that defines the budget process.

    “He was down at the Ford commissioning,” Reed says, referring to President Trump’s weekend event launching a new aircraft carrier, “saying, ‘I want them to pass my budget.’ OK, so we give him $54 billion (U.S.) and then we take it away across the board which would cause chaos.”

    “Right,” Collins replies.

    “It’s just — and he hasn’t — not one word about the budget. Not one word about the debt ceiling,” Reed says.

    “Good point,” Collins replies.

    “(Department of Defense) is going to be paralyzed, everybody is going to be paralyzed,” Reed says.

    You’ve got (Budget Director Mick) Mulvaney saying we’re going to put in all sorts of stuff like a border wall. Then you’ve got (Treasury Secretary Steve) Mnuchin saying it’s got to be clean,” Reed continues. “We’re going to be back in September, and, you know, you’re going to have crazy people in the House.

    From the same article:

    In a more salacious part of what was recorded, Collins then addressed a radio interview in which Rep. Blake Farenthold suggested that if Collins were a man, he’d have challenged her to a duel for opposing the Senate Republicans’ Obamacare overhaul bill.

    “Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asks.

    “I know,” Reed replies. “Trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ‘Cause you could beat the s--- out of him.”

    “Well, he’s huge,” Collins replies. “And he — I don’t mean to be unkind, but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable.”

    “Did you see the picture of him in his pyjamas next to this Playboy bunny?” she continues, referring to an infamous photo of Farenthold.

    At that point, the mic went dead.

    Lol Draft Dodger Trump declares transgender people unfit to serve in the military. On Twitter! Because of course he did.

    The Pentagon is apparently referring all questions about this to the White House.

    Putting aside all social biases and issues of discrimination and etiquette, this is really the most inept administration of my lifetime strictly from a perspective of legislative execution and communication consistency. It's laughable. Trump drained the swamp right into the drinking water reservoir.

    Good decision. The military doesn't even allow people with flat feet or ADD to serve. Not sure why someone who suffers from gender dysphoria should be granted an exception.

    Wasn't that Trump's medical excuse when he dodged Vietnam? Lol... dude, custom orthopedic inserts cost like $50. I would be very surprised if that is still a barrier to entry.

    Apparently dudes with ED shouldn't be allowed to serve either, because Viagra alone is costing the military 4x as much as tranny surgery. Or maybe this is a two birds with one stone kinda thing... you know, kick out the trannies and the boners will bounce back?

    It depends on the severity of one's flat feet. You'd be surprised what can keep you out. Acne, eczema, etc.

    Transgenderism in the military is probably like a grain of sand to a beach. Not sure how any stretch of the imagination concludes there is any kind of prohibitive "experimentation" with the military. Seems pretty flatly discriminatory to me if it's a blanket ban without vetting the mental health of individuals on a case-by-case basis.

    I mean even if you don't care at all, considering it a net positive is a stretch too. Seems like a completely unfounded celebration.
