Senator Corker Gives Middle Finger to Americans – Taking Off to Chattanooga Tomorrow – Won’t Vote on Spending Bill
Trump-hating Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) gave a proverbial middle finger to Americans Thursday afternoon as the House was preparing to pass a revamped spending bill which would include $5 billion for border wall funding.
The new interim bill ended up passing the House Thursday night 217-185. Eight Republicans voted “no.”
The bill is now heading to the Senate where it must pass with 60 votes to avoid a government shutdown, however, McConnell could go nuclear and go to 51 votes to pass the bill.
The Senate is gone for the day and returns Friday at noon ET.
Outgoing Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) is angry that President Trump couldn’t make it to his farewell party so now he’s going to stick it to the American taxpayer — especially the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump to build a wall and secure our borders.
Corker threw a tantrum and said he’s heading home to Chattanooga Friday regardless of whether he is needed for the vote on the new interim spending bill.
JOHN ROBERTS: After @realDonaldTrump blew off an Oval Office farewell with @SenBobCorker , Corker now says he’s heading home to Chattanooga tomorrow, regardless of whether he is needed for a vote on a border security funding measure.

President Trump must stick it to the Senate and shut the government down if they don’t pass a bill with $5 billion for border wall funding.
The State Department has already been directed to prepare for a shutdown, reported FOX News.
