Bob Corker Is Ready to Impeach Trump Using the 25th Amendment


Bob Corker is putting liberal Tennesseans through a roller-coaster ride of ambivalence at the moment. The 11 year junior U.S. Senator has never given us a reason to like him, to trust him, or even to abide him. And, yet, it is October 2017 and I have found myself — on multiple occasions — nodding in silent agreement with something Corker has said.

Corker also serves as current chairman of the Senate’s Committee on Foreign Relations in the 115th Congress and, if one recalls, he was also considered to be a contender for Trump’s VP slot. He continued to praise Trump publicly up until about a month ago.

In a recent New York Times interview, Corker said of President Trump:

“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.”

During the same interview, Bob Corker went so far as to say he has concerns that Donald Trump is going to put America “on the path” to World War III because of the manner in which he is handling diplomacy (lack thereof) with North Korea.

For Trump’s part, he responded to Corker’s initial criticism the only way anyone would have expected he would.

Corker’s staff disputes Trump’s account and instead says it was Donald Trump who encouraged Senator Corker to run and offered his endorsement, per the Washington Post.

Corker himself replied to Trump’s tirade with his own tweet.

This, of course, prompted our actual president to respond in the manner of a person who literally requires a day care center.

Because Google translate does not yet offer Covfefe as an official language, we cannot be exactly certain what “Liddle’” means, but one assumes that the tiny-handed president with the Cheeto-face, the tiny hands, and variously beehive hair situation… is mocking Corker’s height. As for the assertion that Corker was some duped by the New York Times, that was immediately debunked by the New York Times.
