Sen Bob Corker Claims Trump Is Leading Us Down Path to WWIII And Running WH Like Reality TV

It seems that President Donald Trump’s incessant tweeting habit (and personal conflicts with GOP Senators) is starting to catch up to him. Trump recently went on a tweet storm slamming Bob Corker, and Corker hit back this past Sunday in a way like no other Republican has. It seems that an all out fight with the establishment is inevitable.

On Sunday, the President unleashed a tweet storm on Corker when he claimed Trump was treating the White House like a reality show, and that his antics are leading the nation down a path to World War III.

According to The New York Times, Corker unleashed a torrent of criticism on the President for the manner in which he carries out his duties. saying that he’s basically treating the office like it’s a reality TV show.

Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday that President Trump was treating his office like “a reality show,” with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”

In an extraordinary rebuke of a president of his own party, Mr. Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts “like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.”

“He concerns me,” Mr. Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”

Mr. Corker’s comments capped a remarkable day of sulfurous insults between the president and the Tennessee senator — a powerful, if lame-duck, lawmaker, whose support will be critical to the president on tax reform and the fate of the Iran nuclear deal.

The President was not impressed with Corker’s criticisms (what do you expect). He ripped into him regarding issues like the Iran deal.

Then, things got really personal.

In response, Corker posted one of the most most scathing rebukes of the President from any Republican to date. It seems that Corker just doesn’t care any more, and is no longer holding back.

“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

That tweet has over 128,000 retweets at the time of this writing.

Clearly, Corker just does not care any more and is finally unleashing what he really thinks about the President. And he is not alone.

Independent Journal Review reporter Haley Byrd tweeted that Corker’s views are something that many Congressional Republicans have privately expressed for months.

Furthermore, let’s not forget the last time that the President picked on a Republican Senator, and what happened when it came time for an important vote.

That senator would be the epitome of the GOP establishment, John McCain, and his refusal to support anything regarding Obamacare that had a semblance of repeal. And look where we are now. Still Obamacare, still President Trump, still Senator McCain. And where are we?

The issue now could be tax reform, with Corker stating that he may oppose the GOP’s plan, according to NPR.

“Unless it reduces deficits — let me say that one more time — unless it reduces deficits and does not add to deficits with reasonable and responsible growth models, and unless we can make it permanent, I don’t have any interest in it,” Corker said at the Budget Committee hearing last week.

That’s not an unreasonable stipulation, though. Tax plans that cut rates for everyone are a good thing, but those cuts cannot simply leave the debt unaddressed. Anything that does not begin to reduce the reprehensible debt level is simply irresponsible.

Nonetheless, if these personal feuds continue, getting anything passed may prove difficult. It appears that the Republican Party at large is becoming more disillusioned with Donald Trump, which makes the prognosis of any major government reforms pretty bleak.

But the personal conflicts, yes even with establishment Senators and Representatives, is not helping.

Maybe the incessant tweeting and petty personal conflicts with the establishment need to, you know… stop? Then maybe we can focus on what really matters? Just some food for thought.
