Ugh. Swamp Monster Mitch McConnell Defends Corker Amid Feud With POTUS Trump

President Trump is NOT happy with swamptastic Senator Bob Corker (R-TN). Corker told the media this week that Cabinet members like Gen. Mattis and Tillerson prevent the White House from all out chaos. In a Sunday morning tweet storm, President Trump laced into Corker.

USA Today reports:

President Donald Trump used his Sunday morning to blast U.S. Sen. Bob Corker on Twitter, lashing out at the Tennessee Republican days after Corker had his own harsh words for the administration.

Early Sunday in three tweets, Trump took credit for Corker deciding against running for re-election, saying he denied an endorsement after Corker “begged” for one.

“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged” me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without…,” the first tweet reads.

“..my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!,” reads the second tweet.

Trump’s final tweet says he expects Corker to be a negative voice, adding the former Chattanooga mayor didn’t have the “guts to run.”

Shortly after, Corker hit back at Trump.

“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) defend Corker from President Trump’s criticism, calling him “a valuable member of the Senate Republican caucus.”

The Hill reports:

“Sen. Corker is a valuable member of the Senate Republican caucus and he’s also on the Budget committee and a particularly important player as we move to the floor on the budget next week and he’s an important part of our team,” McConnell said Monday in Kentucky, according to the Associated Press.

Asked about whether he agreed with Corker’s criticism of Trump, McConnell sidestepped, adding: “[Corker is] an important part of our team and he’s a particularly important part of the budget debate which will be on the floor next week.”
