GOP Senator Susan Collins was caught on a hot microphone speaking with Democratic Senator Jack Reed, both making critical comments of the Trump administration.
According to the tape obtained by the Washington Post, Collins was discussing Donald Trump and the federal budget with Reed at the end of a Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee hearing.
One can hear Collins criticizing the Office of Management and Budget, saying that its approach to reducing spending is greedy.
“No thinking about it, no metrics, no nothing. It’s just incredibly irresponsible,” Collins said.
“I think — I think he’s crazy,” Reed replied in an apparent reference to Trump.
“I don’t think he knows there is a BCA (Budget Control Act) or anything,” Collins later said, apparently referring to the president and a 2011 budget law.
