Republican Senator Goes Beserk On Trump Over Handling Of Government Shutdown: This Is A Made Up Fight



There are few things in life that are totally constant and reliable. Death is one. Taxes is another. A third, of course, is President Donald Trump using his Twitter account in the least statesman-like way possible all the time.

As it turns out, even at Christmas, Trump refuses to take a break from his incessant tweeting and (mis)using of Twitter to simply engage in pointless, degrading feuds and lambast those who disagree with him. However, the latest Twitter fight he got into had something rather different about it which made it very unusual indeed.

This most recent online feud Trump stooped to was between him and a Senator from his own party. That’s right – this Republican President had a very public and very humiliating argument on social media with a senior politician in his own party. The insanity seems to multiply every day with this guy at this point.

The Senator in question is Sen. Bob Corker, who appeared in a CNN interview to discuss President Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops from Syria, as well as the ongoing government shutdown instigated by the President. Corker did not mince his words – it was the very end of the year and he was clearly furious with the President for his sheer lack of basic professionalism, so he laid into him in that CNN interview, as you can see in the video below.

Predictably, Trump was not having any of that. Even more predictably, the way he chose to respond to this criticism was in the least mature, least professional manner possible: with an agressive tweet (and then another, for good measure). He wrote:

“Senator Bob Corker just stated that, “I’m so priveledged to serve in the Senate for twelve years, and that’s what I told the people of our state that’s what I’d do, serve for two terms.” But that is Not True – wanted to run but poll numbers TANKED when I wouldn’t endorse him…..

“…..Bob Corker was responsible for giving us the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal, which I ended, yet he badmouths me for wanting to bring our young people safely back home. Bob wanted to run and asked for my endorsement. I said NO and the game was over. #MAGA I LOVE TENNESSEE!”

It could, of course, have all ended there. And, indeed, it would have done, had it not been for Sen. Corker’s apparent inability to resist the temptation to respond:

Ouch. Coming from someone so respected within your own party, that’s got to hurt.
