Sen. Susan Collins Blasts House Colleague: ‘He’s So Unattractive, It’s Unbelievable’


Following a Senate Committee of Appropriations Meeting Tuesday, Senator Susan Collins was caught talking with Senator Jack Reed about Rep. Blake Farenthold, calling him “so unattractive.”

Listen to the audio above.

Senator Collins delivered a statement in the hearing before sitting down next Reed, where they start talking to each other about budget and healthcare. The conversation turns towards Farenthold when Collins says, “Did you see the one that challenged me to a duel?”

The senator responded, “Trust me, do you know why he challenged you to a duel? Because you could beat the sh*t out of him.”

The audio gets fuzzy here, but Collins is heard saying “fat guy,” “he’s huge,” and “he is so unattractive it’s unbelievable.”

Collins continued by talking about the famous picture of Farenthold in his pajamas next to a scantily clad model at a costume party in 2010, but tragically cuts off right as she starts to describe it.

Yesterday Farenthold made news when he said it’s “absolutely repugnant” that Senate Republicans are opposing the health care bill, specifically calling out “some female senators from the Northeast,” referring to Collins, who said she would vote no on the bill. Farenthold continued with what Collins took as a invitation to duel.

“If it was a guy from South Texas, I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style,” Farenthold said.
