Tuesday morning, President Trump re-ignited his ongoing feud with Senator Bob Corker, who has spoken critically of Trump since his decision to retire from Congress at the end of this term.
Bob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cuts....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
...Corker dropped out of the race in Tennesse when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump. Look at his record!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
Yes, this infighting among Republicans will only hamper their efforts to pass difficult legislation like tax reform, BUT it's also hard to ignore the quality drama happening right in front of them. Just before a Senate GOP lunch with the President, Senator Thom Tillis was spotted with some popcorn to munch on during what was sure to be a very interesting meeting.
no, thanks. i don't find the devastation of our country to be funny in any kind of way.— Miri Boheme (@MiriBoheme) October 24, 2017
That isn’t funny of course. But little (or liddle’ ) things like this give us an ever-so-brief moment of levity that saves our sanity.— 🏳️🌈Bhán Liz🍀 (@BhanLiz) October 24, 2017
Tillis gets to make this joke. He's been standing up to Trump, incl co-authoring a bill to protect Mueller in case Trump tries to fire him.— SpookiusMaximus 🐙🌵 (@SusieusMaximus) October 24, 2017
That's cute and all, but between stuffing handfuls of that popcorn in your face, could you maybe speak up for human decency? Please?— Some nerdy chick (@imightbenerdy) October 24, 2017
Senator, you’re my representative. I detest and abhor the conduct of the President. I believe you do too. But unless you stand up to voice your displeasure with his conduct, our country weakens more each day. Stand up. Speak out. Or forever lose my vote.— Paul Dickinson (@prdickinson) October 24, 2017
The meeting was reportedly "lighthearted" and "cordial," with neither Trump nor Corker making any reference to the feud that was waging online mere hours beforehand. Trump also declined to mention Arizona Senator Flake.
