Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared on Hannity this past Monday, October 9th, and called for the resignation of Senator Bob Corker, who recently gave an on-record interview to The New York Times criticizing President Donald Trump. In the interview, Corker commented:

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 [the President] to keep him in the middle of the road.

Bannon responded to Corker's remarks:

Sen. Corker is an absolute disgrace. If Bob Corker has any honor, any decency, he should resign immediately. He should not let those words stand.

He went on, saying Corker's words were completely unacceptable during a "time of war:"

We have troops in Afghanistan, in the northwest Pacific and Korea, we have a major problem that could be like World War I, in the South China Sea, in the Persian Gulf, we have American lives at risk every day.

Bannon extended his critique not only to Corker, but to the entire GOP establishment, who he has a plan to overthrow in the upcoming elections:

We’re going to go after them. There’s a coalition coming together that’s going to challenge every Republican incumbent except for Ted Cruz. We are declaring war on the Republican establishment that does not back the agenda that Donald Trump ran on. We’re going after these guys tooth and nail.

Why not Ted Cruz?

Trump has continued to feud with Senator Bob Corker as various humanitarian crises demand his attention in California and Puerto Rico. Most recently, Trump began calling the Senator "Liddle Corker" while claiming falsely that the New York Times recorded his recent interview without the Senator's knowledge. Who knows what will come next? Hopefully, for America's sake, it's a break from the feuding and a little focus on issues like North Korea and the Iran Nuclear Deal.
