This sauvage senator called a male senator ugly on a hot mic

I know I don’t need to tell you this, but sometimes men are gross.

While most of the time it’s easy enough to turn a blind eye, sometimes they’re so unattractive that you just need to say something.

Republican senator Susan Collins found herself in such a position earlier today when she rightly called a gross male senator “so unattractive it’s unbelievable” on a hot mic.

She may be a Republican, but hey, that’s pretty cool of her.

But before we get to what she said, let’s give you a little background as to why she said it.

For one, Republican Blake Farenthold of Texas is very ugly.

Here’s a picture of him wearing a fleece onesie with rubber duckies on it next to a scantily clad bb striking a thot positive pose.

But more substantially, last week he decided to get on his high horse and blame the Republicans’ inability to repeal and replace Obamacare on the “female senators from the Northwest.” And Susan Collins represents the fair state of Maine, where I’m currently and coincidentally planning my first vacation in years.

Don’t worry, that’s not the gross part.

Farenthold then went on to say that “if it was a guy from south Texas” opposing the legislation, “I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.”

And just in case you don’t remember anything from US history or haven’t gotten a chance to see Hamilton yet, Aaron Burr is the dude who shot and killed Alexander Hamilton.

Technically it wasn’t murder because those dudes were so butt hurt at each other they’d agreed to a duel, but that doesn’t make it any less of a pretty thing of Farenthold to say in public about any living creature.

Anyway, today after a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing ended, Susan Collins failed to turn her mic off so everybody ended up hearing her hero moment.

“Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asked a colleague from Rhode Island.

“I know,” he replied. “Trust me — you know why he challenged you to a duel? Because you could beat the sh*t out of him.”

At which point Susan let out a lol and proclaimed, “He is so unattractive, it’s unbelievable.”

And right before the microphone turned off she couldn’t resist asking her friend, “Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this bunny?”

Presumably this was the picture she meant.

Yes, I already showed you that picture, but now that you know a little more about Farenthold, I think it’ll have more resonance for you.

And I think we can all agree that yes, he is so unattractive is it unbelievable.

She may not have known her mic was on, but Susan Collins is an American hero for saying that.
