Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) unloaded on a radio show host who wanted to know why he hadn’t endorsed Donald Trump yet, BuzzFeed reports.
Said Lee: “We can get into that if you want. We can get into the fact that he accused my best friend’s father of conspiring to kill JFK. We can go through the fact that he’s made statements that some have identified correctly as religiously intolerant. We can get into the fact that he’s wildly unpopular in my state, in part because my state consists of people who are members of a religious minority church. A people who were ordered exterminated by the governor of Missouri in 1838. And, statements like that make them nervous.”
Lee added that he wanted assurances from Trump that he would defend the Constitution: “I’m sorry, sir, but that is not an unreasonable demand.”
