Caught on Tape: Can Sen. Ben Sasse Survive This? – The Red Alert News

Caught on Tape: Can Sen. Ben Sasse Survive This?

It’s long been rumored that there are elected Republican officials who say good things about President Donald Trump in public while severely criticizing him behind his back. Usually, in party politics, if you’re caught doing that your political career is over.

Today, an audio recording of U.S. Senator Ben Sasse – a Nebraska Republican who wants to run for the presidency in 2024 – was obtained and published as an expose by the conservative Washington Examiner.

Sasse, as described by the Examiner, “excoriated President Trump in a telephone conference call with constituents this week, saying he had mishandled the coronavirus response, “kisses dictators’ butts,” “sells out our allies,” spends “like a drunken sailor,” mistreats women, and trash-talks evangelicals behind their backs. Trump has “flirted with white supremacists,” according to Sasse, and his family “treated the presidency like a business opportunity.” He said Trump could drive the Senate into the hand of the Democrats and cause permanent damage to the Republican Party.”

The question is, now that the Washington Examiner has exposed Sasse, can he survive politically?


Listen to the audio and share your thoughts in the Comment section further down this page. Can Sen. Sasse politically survive this tape? Should he politically survive this tape? Can he be a viable Republican candidate for the presidency in 2024 having spoken so harshly about President Trump? Is he right or wrong about President Trump?


  1. Gary Perkins says:

    Mr Sasse you should be quiet and enjoy your last term in the Republican party you commie pos

  2. Lyle Combs says:

    Senator Sasse. Uugers? Hong Kongers? Seriously? If you are a Republican why don’t you support our President? I’m a retired Air Force veteran (30 years). Again, please support our President and keep your self serving comments to yourself. Again, please support our President and not the Socialist Democrats.

  3. John Lodrigue says:

    Another want=a=be. He just think. that he is a superstar. This will put him in the democrat hopeful. No place foe him in the Republican Party.

  4. Brad says:

    Sass another RINO we are sick and tired of! This is Trumps Party now and there is no going back SASS so enjoy your last term Communist POS!

  5. Craig says:

    You tried my ass Pierre II! You have been a jackass your entire career in fed government! Your an ideolog! Congress is the ones spending the damn money or do you not understand how our government works! It ashould never be about party it should be about the people!!!

    • MainelyMe says:

      Yes. it IS Congress who spends the money! Sasse lies when he says that Trump spends money like a drunken sailor. You wonder why, a man who professes to be a follower of Christ deliberately lies when it isn’t even necessary. It perplexes me.

  6. gregg says:

    No way would i vote for any person that went against their own party..good thing i dont live in his area

  7. Janice Skaggs says:

    Well Ben Sasse’s career in politics is now over, looks like he wants out! Big stupid mistake Mr. Sasse just made!

  8. M habecker says:

    Don’t forget the ice cream !!!!

  9. Sunne says:

    It appears that Senator Sasse is attempting his impression of Joe Biden. He may try Stand Up Comedy next, as he is
    finished in the GOP.

  10. Aug Miller says:

    Senator Sasse nailed it in his candid discussion. The US needs more Republicanswith integrity like him to level with those they represent.

    • Julie says:

      Sasse and you need to change your affiliation and become democrats. They are the back-stabbing, ass-kissing, communist, lying, brain dead party. And, if you are going to include families in this, let’s talk about Hunter, shall we??? And regarding spending money like a sailor…it isn’t republicans holding up another stimulus bill because they want more money to bail out the failed democratically run cities. People like you and Sasse, pretending to be on the right, make me so angry. I know it’s extremely difficult for those of you who lean-left but start telling the truth, admit you’re democrats, and leave republicans alone, you give them a bad name.

      • Aug Miller says:

        The Senator had the integrity and intestinal fortitude to be candid. The only label I’ll accept being called besides Marine or Hsrringbone Marine is independent thinker. Who likes mindless slogans, political BS or insult? The framers of the Constitution recognized human division in opinions and positions, so put in governance checks and balances. We are all in this together and have to listen and work together or you wind up where two sides fighting each other look like one group committing suicide.

      • Kenneth P Rains says:


      • Demetra says:

        Vote him out! He’s nothing but a backstabber! Hes just jealous of Trump, and he should stop pretending to be a republican and join the left with the rest of the lying corrupt politicians!Trump 2020

      • Rhonda Walter says:

        I’m from Nebraska and this is not why we elected him. This is his second gaffe. He ran unopposed in the primary, but I’m betting next time he won’t be so lucky. Nebraskans are mad.

    • Jeff King says:

      Have you been alive the past 4yrs just think about what the Dems want and do it doesn’t matter what anyone says we want action and Trump gets things done. Wise up or you’ll be in a socialist country. Republicans take over the house and we will be the Great country again

  11. mary makers says:

    Where have you been in the last four years??? Did you ever speak with the President regarding your opinions?? Your timing is very suspicious and makes me ask the question, who is in your pocket?? Do you plan to change your party affiliation? Have you been helpful in uniting the Senate in any of the President’s four years? What have you done during your time in the Senate? American citizens living in Nebraska need to ask and know what you have been doing because you are accountable to them because THEY voted for you. You also are accountable to all citizens in the USA because you are a Senator. So I hope they hold your feet to the fire and discern if you in fact a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Nebraska needs to know, so they can decide if you stay or go. Nebraska should probably check out your financials too!!! Remember, when you point your finger at someone, you have three pointing right back at ya!

  12. G. Hopper says:

    Senator Sasse when you get your foot out of your mouth , go get Poliosi and just get the he## out taking her with you.You appear to be a demo. In disguise, with all the foul mouth crap coming out.why do you hate so and appear so unhappy?
    We are going through some hard times now, but we will get through it. Do the job you were elected to do and be your own man.You owe it to the people who voted for you to represent them rather than being told what to do By someone that don’t represent your voters. If your are a Republican be one. If you are a Democrat then be one.BUT,above all be and honest one either way.


  14. What I think about you should change parties be a Democrat that what you would like.I bet President Trump will be Happy with you lol off with your head .we don’t need the likes of you in our Republican party.I have never heard any Republican speak about President Trump like you have. . Don’t ever think about running for President as Republican .

  15. Ruthell Autry Matteson says:

    You will not be President with behavior like this! Disgusting swamp creature. You should be kicked out now! Glad I have heard this before voting for you in 2024.

  16. Hal Lemoyne says:

  17. John says:

    What is the problem ? The Senator is right on the money !
    Trump is all that and more.
    Glad he had the back bone to say it.

  18. John says:

    I would like to know why we are not using Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine in the USA. Africa uses those drugs and with 1.3 billion people as of 10/13/2020 they only have 38,362 deaths we have over 215,000. We are suppose to be the bright ones?????????????????????

  19. I don’t live in Nebraska, but I am for President Trump! Sasse should not be talking behind President Trump’s back! We need to get the President re-elected, & Keep the majority Republican in the Senate & get back the Republican majority in the House! Biden/Harris are corrupt liars & we don’t need them in the White House!

  20. bruce says:

    I think you are being unfair about some of these subjects.Remember he is not a politician. His opinions are not based on republican philosophy. Sorry, the Senate are responsible for their elections. You think the alternative is better?

  21. Rosie says:

    Sen Bassee,Trump was picked by the voters so you should stand behind him as he is our choice. No one agrees with everything he says or does. The same goes for you too. But at this late date you should support our choice! Biden stands for the worst that can happen to our country,freedom and our choice!! What media stands behind him besides Fox? The rest can say nothing good about him even when he has bent over backwards to improve our lives.You should be ashamed to speak that way so close to an election. Are you for the socialist agenda? You sound like it. He has done more for our country because he is a businessman than all you politicians who have been in office forever! As for kissing our enemies butt he has actually kicked their a$$. You are looking through Democrats eyes!. As for you running for his job in 2024 ,you better think again!!

  22. John w Folsom,Atty says:

    I am a lawyer who graduated from the Municipal University of Omaha, having studied there for 8 months and gone to 4 other colleges at night while an enlisted service man in the navy and Air Force ,then law school also at night .When navy men go out , they spend their own money not the public’s!congress spends money like it is someone else. Money! If you don’t know what you are talking about, shut up!

  23. Pegs says:

    CHANGE PARTIES!!!!!! We DO NOT WANT YOU !!! he would NEVER get my vote.

  24. Douglas says:

    This is the sort of behavior one might expect of a Democrat or a junior high school girl. It has no place in the upper levels of the Federal Government. He needs to serve out his term as honorably as he can manage and then quietly slip into obscurity. There are many descent straight forward individuals in Nebraska who would treat this exalted office with the respect that it deserves. Man up Senator and do the right thing!

  25. robert isola says:

    U.S. Senator Ben Sasse:

    Has a lot to say, some may be right, some may be wrong.

    He needs to keep his mouh shut if he hopes to run for President in the future.

    President Trump has shown more initiative in making things happen over the last 4 years, because he is not a professional politician, sucking on the bosom of all the voters in America.
    This goes for all the Senators and Congress Man and women, they all professional politician screwing the Citizens of America.
    Nobody ever brings up term limits, because they would nbot be able milk the voters and create incredible war chest that when they leave office they can take.
    Now everyone is talking about Biden going back to Obama for help, it’s only because these people want to change the laws of United States of America Constitution and have more then 2 terms as President.
    Can you imagine the damage this man would do to our country if gets back in.

    Look it what was accomplished by President Trump in the 4 years he has been President and the BS he had to deal with, no way any other President ever did what he has done.

    God Bless America and you better pray to God that President Trump is re -elected.

    Thank you.

  26. Sonja Moreau says:

    I agree, we don’t need him. There’s an old saying, “the walls can talk”. So to have someone not be professional and keep their own opinions to themselves could damage his own chances for office. Good thing we know now because he won’t survive a campaign in 2024. I think his remarks are in a general sense worse than Mitt Romney’s. Both should change their party affiliation.

  27. Hildegardplatz says:

    As a man say it to President to his face not behind his back.ur a boy not a man ur rhino.who paid u $$$
    Or what to speak against our President

  28. Jan says:

    If this is true, then Senator Ben Sasse is two-faced! That is more appropriately associated with the Democraps. Maybe he should change parties! We don’t want him, as Republicans don’t want such law makers!

    • Mimi says:

      You know what rhymes with Sasse? Need I say more. He is a big disappointment when he bashes President Trump – best president we have been blessed with in many decades. Sasse is going to really suffer at the polls. We won’t forget!!!
