“Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday, referring to Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti. “She knows nothing about me, a total con!”
Sasse addressed Trump’s comments later that same day during his televised interview, criticizing the president’s choice of words against Daniels. “You don’t call women horseface,” Sasse said, “That’s not the right move. That’s not the way men act.”
His words came after Daniels herself issued a response to Trump with a tweet of her own. “He has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN!” she wrote, in part.
This isn’t the first time that Sasse has spoken out against Trump. The freshman senator has been one of the president’s most vocal Republican critics since 2016, when he revealed he would back a third-party candidate over Trump.
