Retiring Rep. Ryan Costello, R-Pa., unloaded on President Donald Trump for blaming GOP midterm losses on the candidates' lack of loyalty — calling out Trump's "harassment" and "filth spewed . . . every day for two years."

"To disagree and separate from the president on principal and civility in your campaign, to lose because of the president and have him [vulgarity] on you. Angers me to my core," Costello tweeted.

At a Wednesday news conference, Trump chided more than half a dozen moderate Republicans who lost in Tuesday's midterms.

"Mia Love gave me no love. And she lost. Too bad," he said in one instance.

Costello announced his decision not to seek another term last March, after a court-ordered redistricting shifted it to a more liberal area, The Washington Post reported.

But in an interview with Slate, Costello conceded Trump had made his job all the harder.

"It was stormy before there was Stormy," he told the outlet.

Costello since then has been a vocal critic on social media, criticizing Trump for "damaging the fabric our our political culture" and rallying Democrats against him, the Post reported.
