Bob Corker: “The White House has Become an Adult Day Care Center”


President Trump has shown his willingness to criticize anyone, and everyone, who criticizes him, regardless of political affiliation or country of birth.

With the many crisis facing the country, President Trump has focused his energy and time on Bob Corker.  At a time when Trump needs to be recruiting support in Congress, he establishes himself as no better than a toddler throwing a fit in day care.

With a narrow Republican margin of 52 to 48 in the Senate, you’d expect Trump would be trying to curry favor within the GOP caucus, to ensure unanimous support among Senate Republicans.  Yet, he has now singled out 11 GOP senators for discouraging words, mostly on Twitter, some while he was running for the presidency and some since he took office. Bob Corker is only the most recent.  

On Wednesday Corker said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White Hosue Chief of Staff John Kelly “help separate our country from chaos.”

Predictably Trump responded on Twitter with a direct attack on Corker.  Trump said:

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!

Corker, responded with his own Tweet:

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

Corker’s real thoughts about Trump came out in an interview Corker gave Sunday night to New York Times’ reporter Jonathan Martin.   Corker said:
1. “Trump may be setting the US on the path to World War III.”

2. “A lot of people think that there is some kind of ‘good cop, bad cop’ act underway, but that’s just not true.”
3. “He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”
4. “I don’t think he appreciates that when the President of the United States speaks and says the things that he does, the impact that it has around the world, especially in the region that he’s addressing.”
5. “As long as there are people like that around him who are able to talk him down when he gets spun up, you know, calm him down and continue to work with him before a decision gets made, I think we’ll be fine.”
6. “I know for a fact that every single day at the White House, it’s a situation of trying to contain him.”
7. “I know he has hurt, in several instances, he’s hurt us as it relates to negotiations that were underway by tweeting things out.
8. “Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we’re dealing with here … of course they understand the volatility that we’re dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes by people around him to keep him in the middle of the road.”
9. “I don’t know why the President tweets out things that are not true. You know he does it, everyone knows he does it, but he does.”
10. “[It’s] a reality show … like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.”

11. “When I told him that that just wasn’t in the cards, he said, ‘You know, if you run, I’ll endorse you.’ I said, ‘Mr. President, it’s just not in the cards; I’ve already made a decision.'”

12. “I would compliment him on things that he did well, and I’d criticize things that were inappropriate. So it’s been really the same all the way through.”

When a Republican Senator, and the Chairman of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, warns that the President may be taking us to the brink of WWIII there is something terribly wrong.  When a Republican compares the President to a misbehaving toddler.

When a toddler throws a tantrum it is important to establish who’s the boss, and remain consistently unyielding.  The importance of a strong disciplinarian is essential to prevent further acting out.  America is without a parent to exert control over Trump.  Our only hope is that the Judicial and Legislative Branches of Government remain strong and defiant.

  1. Finally, the adults are deciding that party affiliation is not as important as recognizing the insanity endangering our country. This is leadership!
