RINO Corker Runs to Washington Post to Trash POTUS Trump — Yet Again
President Trump is NOT happy with swamptastic Senator Bob Corker (R-TN). Corker told the media this week that Cabinet members like Gen. Mattis and Tillerson prevent the White House from all out chaos. In a Sunday morning tweet storm, President Trump laced into Corker.
USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump used his Sunday morning to blast U.S. Sen. Bob Corker on Twitter, lashing out at the Tennessee Republican days after Corker had his own harsh words for the administration.
Early Sunday in three tweets, Trump took credit for Corker deciding against running for re-election, saying he denied an endorsement after Corker “begged” for one.
“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged” me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without…,” the first tweet reads.
“..my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!,” reads the second tweet.
Trump’s final tweet says he expects Corker to be a negative voice, adding the former Chattanooga mayor didn’t have the “guts to run.”
Corker hit back at Trump.

“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”
Now Trump is back for more.
“The Failing @nytimes set Liddle’ Bob Corker up by recording his conversation. Was made to sound a fool, and that’s what I am dealing with!,” tweeted President Trump.

President Trump has reached the inevitable name-calling stage of his feud with Senator Bob Corker.
he president’s tweet is the latest update to his fight with the outgoing GOP senator who questionedhis competence and chaotic rhetoric this week. Trump tweeted that Corker supposedly begged him for a re-election campaign endorsement, and Corker returned fire by saying the White House has become an “adult day care center.”
Trump’s new tweet refers to the audio released last night where Corker spoke to The New York Times about how the president is leading America towards World War III. Contrary to Trump’s tweeted claim, Corker’s interview was recorded with his consent, and his team kept a recording for themselves as well.
Now Corker has taken yet another stab at President Trump for allegedly harming Secretary of State Tillerson’s diplomatic efforts around the globe.
Fox News reports:
The Tennessee Republican told the Washington Post that it’s the “castration” of Tillerson “that I am most exercised about.”
Corker said Trump undermined Tillerson’s diplomatic efforts with repeated public statements denigrating the secretary of state.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee said such comments will lead to a situation where Trump will only have a “binary choice” of war or a North Korea and Iran that could threaten the United States with nuclear weapons.
“You cannot publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice,” Corker told the Washington Post.
Trump last week told reporters he wished Tillerson would be “tougher.”
Trump has denied having a poor relationship with Tillerson saying, “we have a very good relationship.”
“We disagree on a couple of things. Sometimes I’d like him to be a little bit tougher. But other than that, we have a very good relationship.”
