Trump Calls Never Trump Republicans ‘Human Scum’: ‘Worse and More Dangerous’ Than Democrats

As impeachment over the Ukraine scandal looks to be more and more a reality amid damning Congressional testimony and bombshell reports, President Donald Trump took aim at Republicans who have been critical of him.

“The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!” Trump tweeted out on Wednesday afternoon.

This appears to be a not-so-veiled shot at Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who has been somewhat outspoken in his criticism of Trump’s behavior when it comes to the president attempting to coerce his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate his domestic political rivals by withholding military aid.

As Trump sent out his tweet, a couple dozen loyal House Republicans were causing a scene on Capitol Hill by storming a SCIF — with cell phones in hand — and blocking the closed-door testimony of Pentagon official Laura Cooper.

All of this occurs a day after Ukraine envoy Bill Taylor meticulously laid out to Congress how Trump dangled military aid in front of the Ukrainians in an effort to force the Ukrainian president to publicly declare that they were opening investigations into the Bidens and the 2016 election.

Trump, meanwhile, has pinned this tweet to his timeline.

Later in the afternoon, the president then blasted Taylor directly on Twitter, labeling him a “Never Trumper” who he didn’t know while complaining that the process hasn’t been fair to him.
