'OLD DUDES EATING JELL-O': Sinema Slays Dems While Courting GOP Donor Support

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.23.23

Sinema is turning on her old party.

According to a Politico report, Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema is blasting her old party while courting GOP donors to raise money for her re-election bid; Sinema became an Independent in December.

“It’s really early,” Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), who chairs the Senate Democratic campaign arm, said. “I don’t know what she’s planning on doing.”

From Politico:

As she races to stockpile campaign money and post an impressive, statement-making first-quarter fundraising number, Sinema has used a series of Republican-dominated receptions and retreats this year to belittle her Democratic colleagues, shower her GOP allies with praise and, in one case, quite literally give the middle finger to President Joe Biden’s White House.

Speaking in private, whether one-on-one or with small groups of Republican senators, she’s even more cutting, particularly about Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, whom she derides in harshly critical terms, according to senior Republican officials directly familiar with her comments.

Sinema’s sniping spree has delighted the Republican lawmakers, lobbyists, and donors who’ve taken in the show, giving some of them hope that she can be convinced to caucus with the GOP, either in this Congress or in the case she’s reelected as an independent.

Sinema is openly blasting her former Dems, criticizing everything from their lunches to their age.

“Those lunches were ridiculous,” Sinmea said. “I’m not caucusing with the Democrats, I’m formally aligned with the Democrats for committee purposes,” she told a small group of Republican lobbyists at a reception in Washington. “But apart from that I am not a part of the caucus.”

Sinema continued: “Old dudes are eating Jell-O, everyone is talking about how great they are,” Sinema recounted to gales of laughter. “I don’t really need to be there for that. That’s an hour and a half twice a week that I can get back.”
