Republican senators who have screwed with Trump are finding out that there are serious consequences for their actions as as pro-Trump activists are starting to mobilize and take action. 

For example, conservative billionaire and Trump benefactor Robert Mercer will be contributing $300,000 to a super PAC supporting a primary challenger to Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake who has been a vocal opponent of the president’s stand on immigration and is even promoting a book that argues the GOP is in “denial” about the president.

Another idiot, Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller also learned this week he would face a primary challenge from a Trump backer who has run unsuccessfully for Senate before.

And of course Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is feeling the heat from Trump and his base as the president is PISSED OFF about the McConnell’s inability to get health care legislation passed.

Hell, McConnell can’t get ANYTHING passed! It’s ridiculous.

Flake has been the loudest about his hatred fo the president. The jackass is making the TV rounds to discuss his lame book ahead of his re-election race next year.

“If this was our Faustian bargain, then it was not worth it,” Flake says. “If ultimately our principles were so malleable as to no longer be principles, then what was the point of political victories in the first place?”

Shut the hell up you pile of garbage.

The White House hit back at Flake- perfect name for this idiot btw.

“I think Senator Flake would serve his constituents much better if he was less focused on writing a book and attacking the president than passing legislation,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said last week when asked if the president would back a challenger.

Politico first reported, though, that Mercer plans to donate to the super PAC backing Flake challenger Kelli Ward, a former state senator who unsuccessfully ran against Arizona Sen. John McCain in 2016.

Speaking to Fox News’ Dana Perino on “The Story” last week, Flake denied being worried about a primary challenge.

“I’m going to run, run hard, have a good campaign, and I feel good about it,” the senator said.

Like Flake, Heller is facing a primary challenge in Nevada from the right: businessman Danny Tarkanian, the son of legendary Nevada basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian.

Heller has long been considered vulnerable but his efforts to at least avoid a primary challenge grew more complicated when he declined to back the Republican-controlled Senate’s early ObamaCare overhaul plan.

At one point, a pro-Trump group called America First Policies briefly took out advertisements against Heller over his health care stance.

Heller ultimately backed a scaled-back measure. But the overall repeal effort failed, denying Trump, at least for now, his first major legislative victory.

Still, some Republicans are skeptical about Tarkanian’s chances. The candidate most recently lost a 2016 GOP primary bid for the seat of retiring Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid.

“I think that Dean Heller has opened himself up to a challenge, but I don’t think that Danny is the person to make that successful challenge,” Republican strategist Rory McShane said Wednesday. “Beating Dean Heller would take the support of a lot of national groups like Club for Growth and the National Association of Gun Rights. It would be tough for Danny to win a primary without a lot of those national groups behind him.”

Meanwhile, McConnell, who is not up for re-election this year, has been facing the wrath of Trump and his supporters after saying in a speech that Trump had “excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.”

“Hey Kentucky–time to tell @SenateMajLdr McConnell to stop rolling over for the Dems, advance the Trump agenda, or step aside,” conservative radio host Laura Ingraham tweeted Thursday.

Trump himself has been dinging McConnell on Twitter for not getting a health care bill through the Senate, despite Republicans pledging to repeal ObamaCare for years.

“Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done,” the president tweeted. “Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!”
