Tennessee senator Bob Corker got called out by the president of the United States for suggesting that Trump's current employee Rex Tillerson was holding the country together. Corker responded on Twitter, where he suggested that the White House had been turned into a "daycare center." Get it?
It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.— Senator Bob Corker (@SenBobCorker) October 8, 2017
Corker followed up his incendiary tweet with an interview with the New York Times, and people are losing it over his claims that not only is Trump being managed by his cabinet, but that he may just start WWIII! Whoopee!
A New York Times reporter added a few more quotes from Corker on Twitter, in which is seems like Corker hasn't gotten any guff from his fellow Republicans about his comments:
Corker said he talked to MITCH today . Zero pushback about his "daycare" tweet 1/— Jonathan Martin (@jmartNYT) October 9, 2017
He brought up "calm before the storm" to complain its "gotten to where, as a nation, we just accept these things" but 2/— Jonathan Martin (@jmartNYT) October 9, 2017
Corker belittled the low expectations for Trump, voicing the way it's rationalized by apologists: "You know, well, he acted ok yesterday" 4/— Jonathan Martin (@jmartNYT) October 9, 2017
"I don't think that he understands that the messages he sends out, especially when you take into account that..." 5/— Jonathan Martin (@jmartNYT) October 9, 2017
Corker still seems to think Trump will be "fine" if his managers can keep him to the middle of the road. But that's a pretty big "if" when nuclear war is on the table. What people really want to know from Corker is: What are you going to do about it?
