Tennessee Senator Bob Corker uncorked on Trump in an interview with The New York Times, “Bob Corker Says Trump’s Recklessness Threatens ‘World War III’:”
“(Corker) 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. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”
Corker says nearly every Republican Senator shares his concern:
“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.”
Good for Corker, you say? Well, why did he wait until he’s a lame duck not running for reelection? And why won’t his colleagues speak up? Are they that intimidated? Or that spineless?
World War III?
This is not exactly Profiles in Courage.
