Sen. Susan Collins called out new communications director Anthony Scaramucci for his foul-mouthed critique of the West Wing, saying she hopes he'll set a "different tone" in the future.

In an interview with CNN's "State of the Union," the Maine Republican disputed the Scaramucci blast at former chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon was simply "colorful," or a consequence of his misplaced trust in a reporter.

"The president certainly has the right to choose whoever he wants to be on his personal staff, but I certainly hope that his new communications director strikes a different tone than he has on his first week on the job," Collin's said.

Collins, one of three Republican senators who sunk the "skinny repeal" of Obamacare on Friday, also said it's time to build a series of health care bills through the committee process.

"The ball is really in our court right now," she said. "Our job is not done."

And, she added, Trump's threat to scrap the Obamacare subsidies would only hurt "the most vulnerable" Americans.

"It would set an example of why we need to act, to make sure that those payments, which are not an insurance company bailout, but rather help people who are very low income, afford their out-of-pocket costs towards their deductibles and their co-pays," she said.

"So it really would be detrimental to the most vulnerable if those were cut off."
