Former President Donald Trump blasted Colorado GOP Senate hopeful Joe O’Dea as “stupid” after the candidate suggested the ex-commander-in-chief shouldn’t run for the White House again.

“There’s this RINO [Republican in name only] character in the Great State of Colorado, Joe O’Dea that is running against the incumbent Democrat for the United States Senate, who is having a good old time saying that he wants to ‘distance’ himself from President Trump, and other slightly nasty things,” Trump said on his social media platform Truth Social.
