Update: That was quick.
President Trump has apparently taken a quick break from preparing for today’s festivities to take one last swing at Amash on his way out the door. In a tweet, Trump called him “the dumbest & most disloyal [man] in Congress”. Trump insisted Amash “knew he couldn’t get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan” – something that we mentioned earlier as a possible motivating factor for Amash’s decision to quit the Republican Party.
By adding the quotes around quitting, Trump also suggests – as we did earlier – that Amash was effectively pushed out over his impeachment comments.
Trump wasn’t the only person on Twitter to seize the opportunity to ‘bash the Amash’.
