Inside the 'nasty' feud between Trump and the Republican governor he blames for losing Georgia

The first major fissure in the relationship between President Trump and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp came a year ago, when Kemp paid Trump a clandestine visit in the White House residence.

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, Kemp flew up to Washington to introduce Trump to Kelly Loeffler, an Atlanta business executive he wanted to appoint to fill his state’s open U.S. Senate seat.

But when Kemp and Loeffler finally got their audience with the president, Kemp presented Loeffler as a fait accompli — telling Trump that he wanted the president to meet the woman he was planning to name to the Senate.

Well, if you’ve already made your decision, Trump grumbled, then I’m not sure why you’re here, according to people familiar with the conversation.

Trump later complained to aides that Kemp was rude and impolite — never forgiving the Georgia governor for what he viewed as a major slight.

2. I think Arizona was the decisive kick in the 'nads, but

losing Georgia must have stung more for some reason.

8. That is so Trumpesque

It takes so little to piss him off and be banished forever. I think he particularly doesn't care for a lot of southerners. He used to make fun of Jeff Sessions very southern accent and Kemp comes across as pretty dopey.
