Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, on Tuesday was caught on a hot mic insulting Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, by calling him “so unattractive, it’s unbelievable” after Farenthold blamed Collins for the GOP’s failed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare. 

At the end of a hearing before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, which Collins chairs, Collins can be heard talking with Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., the subcommittee’s ranking member, about comments Farenthold made during a radio interview.

Collins asked Reed if he saw “the one who challenged me to a duel,” referencing Farenthold.

“Do you know why he challenged you to a duel?” Reed replied. “Because you could beat the sh-t out of him first.” 

Collins then insulted Farenthold’s looks and weight, and made fun of him for posing with a young woman while wearing a blue onesie adorned with yellow ducks. 

“Well, fat guy. He’s huge,” Collins said. “He’s so … he’s so unattractive, it’s unbelievable. Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this bunny, this Playboy bunny?”
