Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 08, 2017

Retiring Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker hit back at President Donald Trump on Sunday, tweeting that it was a "shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning," Corker added.

Trump on Sunday went after Corker, who recently announced that he would retire and not run for reelection next year. "Senator Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee," Trump wrote in a pair of tweets. "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!" He added in another follow-up tweet: "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!"

It is so on! Oh my gawd, Trump is creating the biggest tent possible when Bob Corker and Jeff Flake become the voices of reason speaking to the unfitness of this President for the office he leads.

Now they need to take it to the next level and actually DO something about Trump's unfitness through their power in Congress and throughout their own party.

"an adult day care center."

That's our White House.

Corker is on the Foreign Relations committee. Do you think he knows anything about Trump and Russia? Do you think Corker might run for president someday, maybe in 2020?

"an adult day care center."

I'm waiting for the adult diaper jokes.

Corker may have done a huge solid in ways we may never know. Let's look at the past week placed over the template of Trump's threatening cryptic-comments this weekend.

The world knows the position Sen. Corker holds in our government, and they also know this isn't the first time he's called Trump to account for what he's said and done. By literally slapping back so hard against Trump - by alluding to him as an adult in need of day care supervision - Corker virtually signaled the world to not take serious anything our POTUS might say or tweet if the real adults (who Corker already identified earlier this week) aren't in control of what he's saying.

Swear to gawd that Corker's tweet has lowered the temperature in many nations - both allies and foes - trying to figure out if Trump will be allowed to continually make irrational decisions that threaten what little peace there is in the world for no appreciable benefit, but for his agenda to erase Barack Obama's presidency from any historical relevance.

Obama will was in significance as a result of Donald's jihad. Donald himself is cementing his reputation as an evil baby.

Really, really hard to think of her as a "First Lady".

I correctly predicted Corker would say "enough" to Trump's insanity.

I just hope Trump is dumb enough to next insult Corker's entire state.

Next time Corker tweets a response to President Dotard, he needs to immediately go to the M-bomb.

Tillerson's M-bomb blast broke the ice, so if sitting Senators like Corker started dropping Moron-bombs on Trump's pointy head it would be the gift that keeps on giving.

All but inviting his colleagues to join him in speaking out about the president, Mr. Corker said his concerns about Mr. Trump were shared by nearly every Senate Republican.

C'mom you guys, start tweeting how Trump is a moron.

Pray that in private dozens of Republican Senators are flocking to Corker and now planning the best way to remove the foreign object currently lodged in Americas oval office.

A few extra nuggets from our chat w Corker....

Corker said he talked to MITCH today . Zero pushback about his "daycare" tweet 1/

He brought up "calm before the storm" to complain its "gotten to where, as a nation, we just accept these things" but 2/

"it's just not the way a president acts" 3/

Corker belittled the low expectations for Trump, voicing the way it's rationalized by apologists: "You know, well, he acted ok yesterday" 4/

"I don't think that he understands that the messages he sends out, especially when you take into account that..." 5/

"...they are being received in other languages around the world, what that does" -@SenBobCorker on Trump 6/6

The Turtle seems to be letting Corker stick his neck out there while Mitch remains safe in his shell observing the publics reaction.

If TN Republicans are fine with Corker's words we may get to see the majority of Senate Republicans introduce legislation to expel Trump from our political body.

There is nothing in the US Constitution giving the Senate unilateral authority to remove the President.

I seem to recall the house voting to impeach bill clinton and the senate voting against this.
