Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) responded Tuesday to President Donald Trump’s Twitter diatribe after the President told his millions of followers that Amash is a “loser” and a “lightweight.”
“Okay,” Amash shrugged.
He seems unfazed by the firestorm his comments ignited when he said that Trump’s actions are “impeachable,” the first national Republican officeholder to do so.
According to the Hill, when questioned about the primary opponent his comments engendered, he was equally blasé. “It’s not serious,” he said. “I feel very confident in my district.”
Many Republicans, including Amash’s own House Freedom Caucus, have expressed anger with the congressman over his comments. But, since going against the grain truly is Amash’s bread and butter, and the libertarian seems content to be out on a branch alone.
