This morning Mr. Trump took time from his busy schedule of gutting the Affordable Care Act, taking away free access to contraceptives for millions of women, playing chicken with North Korea and now Iran, first insulting and then throwing rolls of paper towels at hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, attacking sports players for exercising their First Amendment rights, claiming credit for inventing the word “fake”, and basically sending us all back to the Dark Ages. Yes, with everything on his plate he took the time to tweet some barbs at fellow Republican, Senator Bob Corker who recently announced he would not be running again in 2018. Among several tweets were:
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 my endorsement.) He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said “NO THANKS.” He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!
…Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn’t have the guts to run!
Yeah. It kind of just leaves you speechless, doesn’t it? Although I do have to give him points for using the word “Hence” in the proper context. But wait! It gets better! Senator Corker, who admittedly has not been hesitant to speak up when he disagrees with Mr. Trump, had a reply of his own:
It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.
C’mon, admit it. This is something most of us have been thinking if not saying since January! So while I may not have agreed politically with Senator Corker in the past, right now he’s a hero to me for not becoming another one of Mr. Trump’s silent victims.
Oh, and while we still have our First Amendment rights (for now), I’m including this…again:
