GOP Sen. Bob Corker: Trump Is A Liar Whose Reckless Threats Could Set Us “On The Path To World War III”

Talk about zero fucks left to give.

The New York Times reports:

Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday that President Trump was treating his office like “a reality show,” with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”

In an extraordinary rebuke of a president of his own party, Mr. Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts “like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.” “He concerns me,” Mr. Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”

Mr. Corker’s comments capped a remarkable day of sulfurous insults between the president and the Tennessee senator — a powerful, if lame-duck, lawmaker, whose support will be critical to the president on tax reform and the fate of the Iran nuclear deal.

As for the tweets that set off the feud on Sunday morning, Mr. Corker expressed a measure of powerlessness. “I don’t know why the president tweets out things that are not true,” he said. “You know he does it, everyone knows he does it, but he does.”

    Isn’t it typical how only politicians with nothing to lose have any backbone? Maybe it’s time for term limits for all offices. Make career politicians a thing of the past and force politicians to worry about the country they serve instead of getting re-elected!

    • Scott MB

      Term limits are a great ides. However, very few would vote for it. The ones that did could do it with confidence that it would never happen and their jobs would be secure. Then they could go back to their constituents and blame tha failure on others. It would be no different than them voting on their own raises, that is total bullshit! We don’t get to give ourselves a raise, our bosses do. So shouldn’t their bosses vote for their raises? I think yes.

      • canoebum

        Three changes would help Congress immensely: 1) restrict all campaign donations to actual citizen residents of their District (living humans, no corporations), 2) restrict their income to only what we pay them (no more honoraria, no outside income, we already pay them to talk), 3) tie their pay to the median income of their District. If they want a raise, they have to raise the incomes of their constituents.

        • Reality.Bites

          Do you know how much a Canadian citizen is allowed to contribute?

          $1500.

          No corporations. No unions. No PACs.

          And you get a tax credit for 75% of the first $500.

          It does nothing to keep politicians from being beholden to the type of people who support them, but it does put spending and advertising on a far more level playing field.

          • Adam King

            And Canada is a sane country. Imagine that.

          • canoebum

            Mostly. But there is that ice-fishing thing, that’s just nuts. I guess someone has to keep Seagrams in business. (Just kidding, Canada, we love you!)

          • It’s limited for individuals in Taiwan too (I forget what amounts). Business and groups are allowed to give in some instances, but they’re under very, very strict rules and many don’t qualify because of something they do (like any kind of government-related work) that disallows that.

          • jerry

            And Canada doesn’t have elections that go on for years. Here they file a couple years in advance to run, needing to fundraise that far ahead to even compete.

    • Gustav2

      We have term limits in Ohio. All it has done is give more power to the lobbyists because they are the only ones who know how the sausage is made.

      • Adam King

        Exactly. Term limits sound good but they’re a terrible idea in practice. They limit the good people too.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      We’d lose a lot of good, experienced people, too, with term limits.

      We should be limiting campaign contributions and spending, and gerrymandering.

      Fair elections would be more effective than term limits.

      • GayOldLady

        Totally agree. In both bodies, but particularly in the Senate, it takes a while to learn procedure. The rules of the Senate are complicated and a 6 year term barely gives an incoming Senator time to get their equilibrium. Term limits are not the answer.

    • Reality.Bites

      You’re SO unfair.

      McCain has nothing to lose and still doesn’t have any backbone.

      • Snownova

        He did help kill the last couple of “repeal & replace” bills, didn’t he?

    • aagold76 .

      the Democrats controlled the House for years- then in 1994, Republicans made a surge and re captured it- holding it every year since except 2007-11….part of the strategy they used to recapture the House was campaigning on term limits. The minute they succeeded, you never heard them say the phrase ‘term limit’ again.

    • Weren’t term limits for Congressional members declared unconstitutional in US Term Limits v Thornton though? You’d need a constitutional amendment for that, I think.

      Maybe there are other ways to help things, like @2guysnamedjoe suggested.

    • Bad Tom

      The problem with term limits is the elimination of institutional memory. Then what happens is outside money controls even more thoroughly.

      Then our heros like tossed out like trash like everyone else.

      Be careful what you wish for.

  • xzargo

    Let’s see how Corker votes. Then we’ll really know if he has any balls.

    • clay

      Oh, he’s not opposed to Turmp’s Legislative agenda, only his Executive actions.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Exactly

      • Adam King

        And certainly not opposed to his judicial appointments, which will devastate the nation for at least a generation.

      • Gerry Fisher

        He hates that tRump “looks” bad.

      • Bad Tom

        It’s true that Trump’s legislative agenda is dangerous.
        But his executive actions could KILL US ALL.
        That makes them objective orders of magnitude worse.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Lord only knows what will happen between now and the midterms. But statements like this should be hammered continuously in Democratic messaging.

    Senator xxxx did nothing as our President endangered American.
    Senator xxxx didn’t speak out when the President blatantly lied to the American public
    Senator xxxx didn’t speak out when our President left the head of Homeland Security unfilled even as America was terrorized by mass murder committed on US soil

    You guys can say what ever you want but to me Hillary is a visionary.
    She tried her best to unmask trump during the campaign and had the media been fair he would have been unmasked.

    Damn, I’m beginning to like Sen Corker.

    • Adam King

      He’s an awful person and a terrible Senator in general, though he’s on the right side in this dispute, obviously. But keep the bigger picture in mind. He’s otherwise a typical Republican.

      • Gustav2

        That’s why I am only “beginning” to like him. He finally did something right!

    • GayOldLady

      Corker is my State Senator. I agree with him on nothing, legislatively. I’ve never voted for him, never would vote for him, but in this case he did the right thing. There’s nothing wrong in saying that a man did the right thing. I’ve bombarded his office with email and phone calls for months and I’m sure a lot of Tennesseans have, so perhaps he’s listening.

      • kareemachan

        I doubt it. What exactly will he do now, join a prestigious repug think tank? Get a cushy job from one of the lobbies who funneled him money to further their cause?

        • GayOldLady

          He’ll likely return to TN and run for Governor, or maybe he’ll challenge Trump for the GOP nomination. I don’t think he’ll become part of a think-tank or even become a lobbyist.

          • Oh!!! I think you nailed it squarely! He is distancing himself from shitgibbon now so he can run against him for the Oval Office.

  • clay

    NPR’s conservative commentator (from the New Republic?) said Turmp tweeting was like a “wild monkey escaped from a cocaine study” this morning.

    • Tomcat

      Perfect analogy.

      • MBear

        an insult to drug addled monkeys

        I hope that was snark. 🙂

        • gaycuckhubby

          No. Serious question. Gorsuch lines up perfectly with his political ideology. Are we going to expect Republicans to vote against their conscience because Trump is dangerous on foreign policy and an a****** on Twitter?

          • kareemachan

            Well, since they are supposed to be voting for the good of their constituents and country, yes.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I was wondering that myself 🙂

        • gaycuckhubby

          I would vote against him because he’s misogynistic homophobic end incorrect in most constitutional issues.

          • Reality.Bites

            But you also wouldn’t be a Republican senator.

            The BEST we will ever get out of the Republicans is polite, subtle bigotry and destruction of the economy for the 99%.

            And you know what? That will be a HUGE win, compared to Nazis marching in the street with the President’s approval and World War III with Germany and Japan as the good guys.

  • Tawreos

    I hope we will start seeing to some GOP congress critters that are going to try to be re-elected start turning on Trump. Then we will know his days are numbered.

    • Joe in PA

      Yeah, I saw yesterday that they were “apologizing” for that ad. Too late. 🙁

      • Adam King

        “Sorry to anyone who was offended that our advertising department employs all and only unregenerate Nazi bigots.”

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Apologies are just hot air.
        What about the creators of the ad, and the chain of command that approved it, and those in a position to stop it? Have they all been shitcanned?

        • Joe in PA

          Don’t shoot the messenger! 🙂 Exactly. I didn’t read the “apology” nor the internet article, presumably it was a “I’m sorry you were offended” kind of apology. 🙁

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            No, I’m not shooting the messenger at all!
            In fact, after reading your post I read Unilever’s apology. You nailed it, nearly verbatim.

          • Joe in PA

            I know buddy, I was just giving you some grief. 🙂

            Side story: I commented on Mediaite yesterday (don’t judge) and damn, even people that I was trying to agree with gave me shit. I’m staying away!

        • And not just shitcanned, but publicly fired, all the way up to the director of advertising. No golden parachutes, just hit the road fool.

      • Uncle Mark

        Looking at that ad, I’m thinking about how many people were involved in its creation, development, and test marketing. There HAVE to have been people who pointed out this ad just being wrong, unless they are incompetent…but I suspect that their work environment punishes people who speak out. I wonder if they even bother testing this ad, because clearly people of color would have said something…unless the executives just didn’t care.

        I wonder if we will see more of this during this moment of Trump…with companies trying to appeal to the deplorables.

        • JP

          I used to work in the ad industry. It usually works like this. There’s a sales exec. He has been popular in the past and his work has done good things. You don’t question that guy. When that guy comes up with or likes a concept, you don’t question it lest you get fired. Even if you know it’s wrong, you just hope that its so bad that the guy ahead of you gets fired and you can take his place.

      • That’s what is so infuriating! They knew what they were doing was racist, but were willing to do so anyway.

    • Karl Dubhe

      The biggest problem is that that company isn’t really Dove; it’s Unilever.

      They own nearly every consumer product that’s out there. So boycotting them would be a huge PITA.

      Perhaps breaking up the near monopoly would be a better idea/punishment for this kind of vile bullshit. 🙂

      • AmeriCanadian

        I propose a fine for gross public indecency. The networks are subject to it, why not advertisers and companies that approve of the ads?

      • Adam King

        We need a new trust-buster like Teddy Roosevelt.

      • Daveed_WOW

        They actually don’t own every consumer product. Boycott is possible.

        • Karl Dubhe

          I did say ‘nearly’ IIRC. 🙂

          But really, I don’t think boycotting is the appropriate thing here, breaking it up would be. Make the punishment fit the crime, right?

          • That is one reason I buy products from independent companies. Nellies for kitchen and laundry soaps, and several different local brands of bath soap, natural toothpaste and deodorants. I use Bon Ami for cleaning, along with vinegar and baking soda. I do have one container of Windex, but that’s because I like their sprayer bottles and will re-use the bottle with my own mixture once it’s empty.

        • Homo Erectus

          Looks like they own all the tea.

      • Scout

        It’s a guarantee that numbers are run and reported on every month internally at Dove and that all the teams have sales goals. Those that were behind this ad campaign will be punished in some way if their ad campaign did not result in increased sales but actually decreased sales for what they were marketing. Boycotting just Dove soap will show that company that they don’t benefit by marketing to racists.

        • Karl Dubhe

          True, but the underlying problem in the world’s economy is that the ownership of the business is concentrated in too few hands.

          The competition you’re talking about is not competition between rivals in the economy, they’re between different branches of the same company.

          There’s no real motivation for them to actually compete to sell the best product at the best value, not at this point. Their ownership of the market share is too large.

          Which is also related to their willingness to embrace racist concept. They’ve got the edge, and want to keep it.

    • canoebum

      I don’t understand the advertising benefit of such an offensive ad. What were they hoping to accomplish? Does this fall under the “any press is good press as long as they spell your name right” principle?

    • Adam King

      That is just jaw-droppingly, blatantly, aggressively racist. There’s absolutely no excuse for it even being thought of, much less produced.

      • AmeriCanadian

        It’s intentional and that’s what I think is most damning and worthy of sanctions.

    • Bj Lincoln

      It is hard to believe not one person involved in the production of this spot noticed how racist it was. Was there no black people involved besides the actress? She didn’t think it was racist? I’m sure Dove will pay more attention from now on.

      • Rob NYNY

        Why would you think any of the actresses knew how the final montage of the ad was going to be? They stand in front of a camera and do their bit. There is no reason to think that any of the actresses knew how the final advert was going to be assembled.

      • Friday

        It’s ….actually hard to believe that’s even real for a major company these days. As in I’m actually kind of skeptical, unless some bigoted ad agency got this under the wire somehow.

    The country desperately needs this to happen, so good. But let’s never forget that THESE PUKE FUCKS GAVE US THIS NIGHTMARE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    And THEY WOULD BE PERFECTLY HAPPY WITH A LESS OBVIOUSLY INSANE DEATH CLOWN LIKE JESUS PENCE.

    It’s not just Demented Shitstain. The problem is WAY bigger and WAY more insidious. We must NEVER let one single repuke get away with what they’ve done, even as they now try to scurry away from this national dumpster fire and pretend to be civilized humans.

      If there is a concerting effort from the rethugs to remove the shit gibbon, the narrative they are spinning will only be limited to him alone. They will claim zero responsibilities for the orangely derange simian for the chaos of the nation.

      • David L. Caster

        The GOP is between a rock and a hard place. Democrats need to press their advantage and crush the Republicans by dumping Trump squarely on the GOP leadership. Trump is the GOP in spite of their attempts to hide behind their fake outrage at the things he has done from the very beginning.

        • bambinoitaliano

          The republican voters will just as conveniently forgotten they are the one who put the shit gibbon in. It’s the 40% non voters that should be coming out in droves to change that. Otherwise it will be the same Dems Vs Repubs all over again.

          • David L. Caster

            Republican supporters of Trump are the foundation of the GOP base: they are poorly informed, easily led, and generally politically uneducated and simply mimic what they are told by their “trusted” right-wing outlets. That segment of the electorate is a known baseline of support for Trumpism.

            Clearly, as you mention, it is the other two-thirds of the electorate that need to inform themselves and start participating in the system. Purity tests may be OK for primaries, but the general elections and even the midterms are the time for pragmatism and strategic voting.

    • Longpole

      Besides, they are done with trump. They got their supreme Court pick away from Obama and Hillary by using him to do the dirty work. Mikey can continue without him and pick out the bible thumpers for future openings.

      The Xtian right is embolded and they intend to complete their agenda: deportation, ending of all social programs, ending of federal power, re-enactment of sodomy laws and the death penalty for abortion.

      • The evangelicals are fervent racists too, never forget that. They despise the fact that in order to keep federal money flowing into their schools and colleges they have to allow people of color, and interracial dating. Which is why a few of the extreme right wing colleges don’t allow dating.

      Points for the use of “insane death clown.” I like it! Who needs “It”?!

      And stories like this keep piling up in the Drumpf administration:

      EPA scientists said ban the pesticide chlorpyrifos. Scott Pruitt said no

      http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-cranor-chlorpyrifos-should-be-banned-20170606-story.html

      Everywhere you look, with few exceptions, the conservative public policy agenda looks like operationalized sociopathy. You don’t have the sense that anything that Republicans are doing will benefit the public, just the opposite. It’s an agenda of harm wrapped up in the b.s. rationalizations of deregulation and smaller government.

      And, as always, there’s the Trump base, surreally oblivious to any reality outside of the ideological kindergartens of right-wing media. An absurd lot, they’ll happily accept the machine gun handed to them in order to shoot themselves in the feet that much faster.

      • I read a comment on another site yesterday by a true believer who was happy that the EPA rolled back some of the environmental laws for coal mining. He truly believes that coal has made a come back and thousands of people have coal jobs again due to cheetolini’s “leadership”.

          It’s incredible, isn’t it? -How easily propagandized some of the public can be? Years ago I used to think that propaganda was becoming less effective over time. Trust in government is fairly low. People are most suspicious and skeptical in general. But then there was Trump and Breitbart and Alex Jones and all the stuff you can see on social media. All of it points to what seems to me an undeniable conclusion: Propaganda is still awesomely effective.

          Yesterday too, I read that there have been 200 or so coal ash spills, which release toxins into the environment. What do we do when people like the person you encountered the other day will probably never encounter this particular fact about coal and pollution? And if he does, he might deny it, or pretend it’s not a problem?

          • It depends upon who reports and how the spill is reported. Low information (man I used to hate that term) voters with little to zero science understanding can be twisted to believe that ash spill is no biggie.

    Lord small gloves must be frothing on the floor this morning.

    For all the lamenting about Corker’s voting record it needs to be said that Corker has been carping over Trump for months. No other GOP Senator or Congressman, with the exception of John McCain, has had the guts to do that. I’m certain the GOP Senators and Congressmen are complaining in private, but in public they’re church mouses. Corker will never vote the way we want because he truly believes in the brand of Conservatism he represents, but at least he had/has the guts to call out Donald J. Trump.

    • At least his vote is one of true conviction, hopefully and not due to payola or adherence to party planks. If it is one of true conviction, I’m ok with it. Because a man like that can have his heart changed though honest dialog, and debates with ideas, not dog whistles.

  • FAEN

    You’ve finally caught up eh Corker.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Good for him! I wish more GOPhers would come forward. They are responsible for this huge mess of a man in office. They need to own up to putting our nation at such risk of war and economic disaster.

  • JaniceInToronto

    Fun!

  • Gerry Fisher

    Although we won’t forget that Man-Baby is in this office due, in part, to Corker’s early support, he’s really serving his country by “making it (more) OK” for a Republican to speak the truth about what’s in the White House right now.

  • Tom Furgas

    It’s about time someone in the GOP faced this situation squarely and told it like it is. I hope this empowers others to speak out about this reckless, lazy, incompetent, bullying, and moronic president.

  • Ben in Oakland

    You left out the important phrase…

    “In collusion with the Republican Party, to which I belong..”

    The people elected Trump because they care about decency.

    Bob Corker must go.
