The Bangor Daily News reports:
President Donald Trump tore into U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine in a Friday tweet, saying the vulnerable Republican whose race is crucial to control of the Senate was “not worth the work” over her stance against seating a new Supreme Court justice before the Nov. 3 election.
Collins is one of two Republicans who has spoken out against her party’s plan to seat a replacement for the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election, which is less than three weeks away. She announced that she would not back a nominee before Trump picked conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy.
There is a nasty rumor out there that @SenatorCollins of Maine will not be supporting our great United States Supreme Court Nominee. Well, she didn’t support Healthcare or my opening up 5000 square miles of Ocean to Maine, so why should this be any different. Not worth the work!

Both of you will be voted out, so maybe you can discuss over coffee one morning after January 20th.
