Exclusive — Many Senate Republicans Reject Bob Corker, Stick Up for President Trump

Written by  Charlie Spiering

Sen. Bob Corker claimed to speak for his Republican colleagues in an interview with the New York Times, but some in the Senate are not happy with his decision to pick a fight with President Donald Trump.

“Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we’re dealing with here,” Corker told the Times, claiming Trump was viewed as a threat to U.S. national security and global stability.

But a spokesperson for Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) told Breitbart News that the senator did not agree with what the retiring Corker had to say.

“No, he does not agree with Sen. Corker,” the spokesperson revealed in a statement. “Senator Barrasso has worked closely with President Trump and will continue to be a strong ally in Congress.”

Barrasso is facing re-election in 2018 amidst rumblings of a possible Republican primary challenger.

Some Republicans staffers made it clear that Corker’s comments were self-serving and unhelpful — especially after announcing his decision to retire rather than seek re-election.

“Given his severe case of short man syndrome and the fact he would have lost his primary, it’s not surprising Corker is seeking attention and affirmation from the Beltway elites,” a senior Republican aide working for a Senator on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told Breitbart News.

Fake headline! "Many' turns out to be exactly one Senator. If that is all the author can find, the headline should be: Only one Senator sticks up for Trump against Corker.

Quoted are zero Senators but rather one spokesman and one aide. Fake news!

Update: Trump has escalated the feud with a Republican leader he needs to accomplish his goals:"WASHINGTON — President Trump escalated his attack on Senator Bob Corker on Tuesday by ridiculing him for his height, even as advisers worried that the president was further fracturing his relationship with congressional Republicans just a week before a vote critical to his tax cutting plan.

Mr. Trump gave Mr. Corker, a two-term Republican from Tennessee and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a derogatory new nickname — “Liddle Bob” — "


The NYTimes reported on the feud: "In labeling Mr. Corker “liddle,” the president was evidently returning to a theme. He considered Mr. Corker for secretary of state during the transition after last year’s election but was reported to have told associates that Mr. Corker, at 5-foot-7, was too short to be the nation’s top diplomat. Instead, Mr. Trump picked Rex W. Tillerson, who is several inches taller but whose own relationship with the president has deteriorated to the point that he was said to have called Mr. Trump a “moron.”

Mr. Tillerson initially did not deny it, but later had a spokeswoman insist he did not say it. The president, in an interview with Forbes magazine released on Tuesday, said that even if it were true, he was at least smarter than Mr. Tillerson.

“I think it’s fake news,” he said. “But if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare I.Q. tests. And I can tell you who is going to win.”

As sophisticated Blabberbuzz readers know,name-calling is the weapon of the impotent. Mocking someone for their height is childish. And bragging about our own IQ? Very stupid.

You childish antics make me laugh, my friend, but the issue is not why Corker is not running for re-election but whether the Republicans in Congress support Trump or want to dump him.
The recent vote on Trump's proposal to end the sanctions against Russia found 51 Republicans voting against his position 1 for.

Here is a report on a May poll: "The majority of Tennesseans still support President Donald Trump, but that number has dropped 8 percentage points since he overwhelmingly won the state in the 2016 election, a new poll shows.

The Vanderbilt University poll found 52 percent had a favorable view of the president, down from 60 percent in the days after the November election.

Meanwhile, the poll found that optimism in Trump’s ability to change Washington for the better dropped 13 points after the election, from 54 percent to 41 percent, while the percentage of Tennesseans who think it will change for the worse rose from 20 percent to 31 percent.

“The fact that it shifted so dramatically from a 34-point gap to a 10-point gap between better or worse in such a short amount of time is striking,” Vanderbilt political science professor Josh Clinton said in a news release.

“Tennessee is a Republican state and Trump is a Republican president,” Clinton said. “But it’s pretty remarkable that his approval rating is only about 10 points higher than Obama’s.”



Fifty-three percent of voters polled, including 45 percent of Republicans, say Trump doesn’t care what people like them think.



The approval ratings of Republican Sens. Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander have dropped from 60 percent to 52 percent and 60 percent to 50 percent, respectively."

Because he is not running, Corker is free to speak his mind and he speaks for most Republcans in Congress, such as the 98% who voted against Trump's Russian proposal.

My friend let me remind you that insults are the weapon of the impotent. You are better than that.

Good for them! Corker has forgotten why the citizens of Tennessee elected him to public office.

Hopefully the voters in the states & districts will get together in future primary elections and remove the rinos and elect real conservatives that will act for Americans instead of continuing the anti-Trump stand that some elected officials are doing.
