Trump Trolls Outgoing GOP Senator On Twitter: He ‘Begged’ Me To Endorse Him, I Said ‘No’

Trump

On Sunday, Donald Trump decided to wake up and troll outgoing Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) like a dejected teenage boy trashing a girl who turned him down for a date.

Via CNN:

“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…” Trump wrote in a series of three consecutive tweets. “..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!” Trump added.

However, Corker didn’t take it lying down. The senator showed that he genuinely has zero fucks left to give with this devastating counter-attack:

Then former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara joined in on the fun, retweeting Corker’s attack, adding: “An adult day care center whose chief resident can’t count to 51.”

Trump fired Bharara only three months into his presidency. Bharara is the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who at the time was reportedly overseeing an investigation into HHS Secretary Tom Price concerning the now-former Secretary’s questionable stock trading practices.

Corker, who is currently the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, announced in September that he was not going to run for re-election, but also made some unflattering comments regarding Trump’s behavior.

The senator said in August that Trump didn’t seem to have “the stability nor some of the competence” to be an effective president.

On Wednesday, Corker claimed that White House Cheif of Staff John Kelly, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Defense Secretary James Mattis were the three men in Trump’s administration helping “separate our country from chaos.”

Corker noted that Tillerson was not getting the type of support he needs from the president.

“I mean, look, I see what’s happening here,” Corker said. “I deal with people throughout the administration and (Tillerson), from my perspective, is in an incredibly frustrating place, where, as I watch, OK, and I can watch very closely on many occasions, I mean you know, he ends up being not being supported in the way I would hope a secretary of state would be supported, that’s just from my vantage point.”

It’s clear that veteran Republican lawmakers despise Trump; unfortunately for their party, that’s not necessarily a bad thing in the minds of many Trump supporters who hate “the GOP establishment” as much as they hate liberals.

However, as more GOP lawmakers begin to turn against Trump, one has to wonder what 2018’s going to look like when congressional candidates decide on how they plan to appeal to moderates and independents who will determine the outcome of their elections. Will these defections push those candidates to distance themselves from Trump or even attack him?

Regardless of what strategy Republicans chose to employ, it’s clear that 2018 will be the only opportunity Americans will have (until 2020) to stop Trump from running our country off a cliff.
