Hypocrisy Taken to the Extreme
Last year Senator Bob Corker made news because of a principled stand he took opposing Trump, telling the nation exactly what Trump was, supporting health and stating he would not vote for any tax cut that increased the deficit.
Now the Senator is making news because he has finally become a turncoat on all of those issues. Once there was this.
It was just a few months ago that Bob Corker, soon after announcing his retirement from the Senate, began to blast President Trump, calling him a childlike president who was putting the United States “on the path to World War III.”
Trump fired back, tweeting that the Tennessee Republican had “begged” for his endorsement and “couldn’t get elected dogcatcher.”
So what has changed? Well Corker announced he was retiring from the Senate, but now he is trying to reverse that, like everything else he has reversed.
But in recent days the two men have reconnected, warming their long-chilly and acrimonious relationship as Corker has moved closer to shelving his retirement plans and launching a late reelection bid.
Corker has had several conversations with the president in which the possibility of a 2018 campaign has been broached, according to five Republicans who were not authorized to comment on the discussions.
Corker also has been cultivating his bonds with the Trump family and top White House staffers, they added — and Monday he met with Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior adviser, for coffee.
This man does not deserve to be in the Senate. He has no moral compass, no belief that cannot be compromised by the greed of political gain. He belongs, well we are not sure where he belongs.
