Republican Senator Bob Corker hasn’t just lashed back at Trump – the establishment GOP titan has thrown down the gauntlet.
Corker unleashed a trio of terrible complaints about Trump to the media today.
First, he said Trump could be ending the world soon. That’s a nice, reasonable place to start!
Second, the senator claims that most in the GOP think Trump is a infant who must be controlled by the wiser heads around him.
Finally, Corker said the President was turning politics into a TV show.
More from Clinton News Network:
Sen. Bob Corker, who engaged in a public feud with President Donald Trump over the weekend, said Trump is setting the country “on the path to World War III.”
Trump is a President who is acting “like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something,” the Tennessee Republican said in an interview with The New York Times that was published Sunday night.
“He concerns me,” Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”
The newspaper did not expand on the “World War III” comments beyond mentioning the quote in the first paragraph of the story.
Trump and Corker, who is not running for re-election in 2018, launched into a Twitter spat Sunday morning in a major public falling out, making the Tennessean the latest senior Republican lawmaker to openly criticize Trump over his statements online and off.
At one point in his series of tweets attacking Corker, Trump said he rejected the senator’s request for an endorsement — a claim denied by Corker’s chief of staff, Todd Womack, later in the day.
“I don’t know why the President tweets out things that are not true,” Corker said. “You know he does it, everyone knows he does it, but he does.”
Which side are you on, the establishment – and now alarmist – GOP?
