Trump Slams 'Dumb & Disloyal' Amash As Congressman Quits Republican Party

•, By Tyler Durden

President Trump has apparently taken a quick break from preparing for today's festivities to take one last swing at Amash on his way out the door. In a tweet, Trump called him "the dumbest & most disloyal [man] in Congress". Trump insisted Amash "knew he couldn't get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan" - something that we mentioned earlier as a possible motivating factor for Amash's decision to quit the Republican Party.

By adding the quotes around quitting, Trump also suggests  - as we did earlier - that Amash was effectively pushed out over his impeachment comments.

Trump wasn't the only person on Twitter to seize the opportunity to 'bash the Amash'.

We imagine this just made Amash's holiday.

With most Americans away from their desks and enjoying a long weekend with the family, Michigan Congressman Justin Amash - you might remember him as the one and only Republican Congressman who has publicly expressed support for impeaching President Trump - just announced that he's resigning from the Republican Party, presumably to start a #NeverTrump party of one.
