Susan Collins recalls her horrific ordeal during the riots and begging Trump to stop the attack!

The proceedings began calmly enough. Around 1 p.m., we senators proceeded to the House for a joint session. Soon there was an objection, baseless in my view, to accepting the electoral count from Arizona. We returned to the Senate to begin our two-hour debate with senators, beginning a series of 5-minute speeches. Sen. James Lankford had just started speaking when, all of a sudden, the Capitol Police and staff from the Sergeant at Arms burst into the chamber and removed Vice President Mike Pence who was presiding. Shortly thereafter, the two Senate leaders were also rushed away.

My first thought was that the Iranians had followed through on their threat to strike the Capitol, but a police officer took over the podium and explained that violent demonstrators had breached the entire perimeter of the Capitol and were inside. Several of us pointed out that the doors to the press gallery were unlocked right above us. That tells you how overwhelmed and unprepared the Capitol Police were, although many, many of them were very courageous.

We were told to stay put in the chamber, which did not seem wise to me, because the rioters’ purpose was to disrupt the counting of the electoral vote, so they were clearly headed our way. Sen. Todd Young of Indiana, who had served in the Marines, moved over near Sen. Lisa Murkowski and me. Only later did I learn that he was positioning himself to repel the rioters and defend us.

Some time passed, and we were informed that we would be put on buses, which, it seemed to me, would make us sitting ducks had it been carried out. Finally, we were ushered out of the chamber and taken through the tunnels under the Capitol, with the police urging us to “hurry, hurry!” (Unfortunately, I had chosen to wear high heels that day so it was hard to run.)......

I find this all quite concerning....

...I was very concerned.

In fact, I was very concerned right into my Depends brand undergarments.

Fortunately, Matty Gaetz was right there to take them off my hands.

Well, she's learned her lesson.

by Anonymousreply 401/11/2021

Susan, I recall how you won your seat in the recent senate election with a margin much, much, much higher than polls predicted. How that come to pass concerns me. I’d even go so far as “saddened” and “outraged”.

R4 - yeah, she learned her lesson alright, the way she said Donald Trump learned his lesson a few months ago.

Quite interesting insight into what happened, given the absence of official briefings.

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) proves to be Susan Collins's soulmate.❤❤❤

Asked about the current call to impeach Trump, Blunt commented

[quote] My personal view is that the president touched the hot stove on Wednesday and is unlikely to touch it again.

You learned your lesson, Suzie? Or are you still just "concerned"?

What? After all the publicity these protests got before the day of the event, her first thought was Iranians? Does she even know where she is at any given time?

by Anonymousreply 2501/11/2021

While I couldn't be certain because I wasn't there, Susan. I might put it on my radar to possibly consider at a later point in time.

The congress people who were in the Capitol now know how the kids during school shootings felt.

I'm disappointed.

But I'm sure the president has learned his lesson, as my dear friend Roy Blunt has said.

Good grief, Susan. What do those Mainers see in her. But I shouldn't complain too much - she was one of what? 3 people who saved Obamacare?

Do you think Sue Collins and Sue Sarandon would make good scissors sisters. Seeing as they are concerned yet useless in fact destructive actors in the public arena.

Both of them are disingenuous cunts. R51 So maybe?

Somebody has convinced Susan Collins and the people of Maine that this is just a special season of “Murder She Wrote.”

Sue, you have the presence of a special guest star who eats paste.

They hate her. She most certainly did not win that election fairly. They all cheat.

Cherry on the cake for me is some journalists quietly investigate VOTER FRAUD by the republicans and just dump the facts all at once, sometime in the future.

R32, you mean well but the children in a school massacre don't have police and other secret service types to rush in at the first sign of trouble, guide them to an impenetrable location within the school and babysit them (with TV) till the threat is over. There are very few ex-marines hanging around in classrooms to move over and defend the more vulnerable kids (or as in the case of Susan Collins, defend the indefensible).

So no, Senators don't have a clue what kids in that position feel. Were the kids who've been in such situations triggered by what they saw on the news, though? Very probably.

Her Senate seat probably can't be flipped Blue until more than two black people live in Maine.
