Retiring Senator Bob Corker, newly liberated from ever having to run for office again, gave a jaw dropping interview with the New York Times where he lampooned Donald and basically said he is an idiot who doesn't understand what the hell he's doing. He also doubled down on earlier comments where he said that certain adults in the room are the only ones preventing this shit show from getting even worse.
Here's some excerpts from the interview. I'll remind you that Corker is a Republican Senator...
"I know for a fact that every single day at the White House it’s a situation of trying to contain him."
"But yes, I mean, you know, yes. He concerns me. I mean he would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation." (Emphasis by me)
"I do worry that these — Sometimes I feel like he’s on a reality show of some kind, you know, when he’s talking about these big foreign policy issues. And, you know, he doesn’t realize that, you know, that we could be heading towards World War III with the kinds of comments that he’s making."
"Well, when I watch his performances, you know, it very much feels to me like he thinks as president he’s on a reality television show. And I just mean — I don’t think he understands that the messages that he sends out, especially when you take into account they’re being received in other languages around the world, what that does. I know he’s hurt, in several instances, he’s hurt us as it relates to negotiations that were underway by tweeting things out. And I just — It worries me."
"It’s just total — I mean, again, it’s like he’s doing “The Apprentice” or something. He’s just putting on an act. And it’s worrisome. You have people out there working hard to bring some — to solve problems, and those kinds of statements set us back. They just do."
Again - this is all from a conservative Republican Senator who was on Donald's short list to be Secretary of State, but didn't get the job because he wasn't tall enough for Donald's liking.
The part of the interview that stuck out the most to me was how he was adamant that the vast majority of Senate Republicans agree with pretty much everything he's saying, which means that the Republican Party is enabling Donald. I applaud Senator Corker for being so blunt about Donald, but it also deeply frustrates me that the Republican Party knows Donald is a threat to our democracy, but won't do anything about it because he's on "their team."
