After Sen. Bob Corker announced that he would not run for reelection, he began an epic & ongoing Trump bashing spree. Corker set the internet on fire last week when he called the White House an “adult day care center.”
Corker chairs the Senate foreign relations committee, and he sees Trump as a major threat to American safety. Corker said in a recent interview with The New York Times:
“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. He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation”
He believes that Trump is putting America “on the path to World War III” because of the way he is handling North Korea.
Corker added, “I know he has hurt, in several instances, he’s hurt us as it relates to negotiations that were underway by tweeting things out.”
The Daily Beast’s John Avlon appeared on CNN to discuss Corker’s comments with host Chris Cuomo. He said Corker expressed “what many Republican Senators are saying in private.”
Avlon stated, “The lawyer in me hears something different. I’m thinking of the 25th Amendment, Section 4, which speaks to a president who is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Let’s just reflect on some of the word choices that Senator Corker has made, because post-Charlottesville, he was questioning the stability of the president. Now he’s using the word ‘reckless.’ Now he’s using the word ‘chaos.’ Now he’s saying that ‘he concerns me.’ I think he’s planting seeds for questioning the fitness, the mental fitness of the president, pursuant to the 25th Amendment, to continue with his responsibilities.”
