Shot. Chaser. (Trump And Bob Corker Edition)

Shot and chaser

President Trump fired another shot at retiring Tennessee Senator Bob Corker today:

And Corker fired back:

For the record, Corker voted against the Iran deal back in 2015.

Update: This is the appearance on the Today show that apparently prompted Trump’s tweet:

But wait, there’s more:

Much like John McCain, it would appear that Bob Corker is in “I don’t give a shit mode.” Too bad that more Republican Senators and Members of Congress don’t have the same courage.

Also, I have updated the original post to include a third tweet from Trump directed at Corker.

    I mean…how many ways can you say it?
    The Comb-Over is delusional.

    newest @realdonaldtrump

    Isn’t it sad that lightweight Senator Bob Corker, who couldn’t get re-elected in the Great State of Tennessee, will now fight Tax Cuts plus!

  4. Daryl's other brother Darryl says:

    According to Dumb Donnie, Corker couldn’t get elected as dog-catcher…but he’s a two term Senator who was the Mayor of Chattanooga before that.
    The Comb-Over really is the Scarecrow…if he only had a brain….

    For those of you who wonder what it would be like if we lowered the age for: voting eligibility (18), to be President or Vice President (35), Senator (30, or Representative (25), down to 15 – Trump is the prototype result.

  6. bookdragon says:

    @al-Ameda: I don’t know. My 16 year old would make a much better president than Trump. She actually does her homework.

    And, unlike our 60-something neighbors, sees Trump for the buffoon he is.
