Trump: Ha, Ha, Sen. Bob Corker Is Short

The Hill reports:

A New York Times reporter fired back Tuesday at President Trump after the president claimed the publication set up Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) by recording his conversation.

Trump had tweeted earlier Tuesday that the newspaper set Corker up by recording the conversation. But New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin disputed Trump’s claim that Corker was surreptitiously recorded.

“Corker had 2 aides on line, also recording, and they made sure after it ended that I was taping, too,” Martin tweeted. In the transcript of The Times’ interview, Corker says the conversation was on the record.

“I understand we’re on the record. I don’t like normally talking to you on the record — I’m kidding you — but I will,” Corker says, according to a transcript of the interview on The Times.

Everyone here be safe and good; I’ll be back in a week, providing international air travel isn’t suspended as a result of Trump’s nonsense before then.

      Lidl is German.
      Pointless fact update.

    • ChrisMorley

      Lidl is in fact a German global discount supermarket chain, with over 10,000 stores across Europe, and it’s now attempting to enter the US market.

      • RoFaWh

        I hope they have more success than Target did when it tried, with a notable lack of success, to enter the Canadian market.

    • TheManicMechanic

      Lidl is in the process of expanding in the US. MD is getting a spanking new one.

  • TrueWords

    Trump is so used to forcing everyone to sign “loyalty” agreements that he just can’t fathom someone would willfully and openly tell the truth about him.

    It’s absolutely tearing Trump apart inside knowing that he can’t use an army of lawyers to bully him into silence.

    A nation that allows a demagogue to berate, to denigrate, anyone who challenges or even questions him is a nation that has lost all sense of honour.

    It’s always fun to realize that a supposed political figure is vastly underestimating the abilities of his cohorts because of their height or other characteristics.

    Make sure to appoint short, ugly, bald investigators. He’ll spill the beans, thinking they’re too incompetent to understand what he’s saying.

    • Trump would ridicule an investigator simply for taking notes.
      oh wait….

    James Comey is 6’8′, Trump hates him.
    Bob Corker is 5’7″, Trump hates him.

    Trump hates anyone who is taller than him or smarter than him.

  • This is such typical right wing BS. They’re mad because the Times quoted Corker verbatim. This is the most bizarre line of attack and they use it almost constantly.

    • Uncle Mark

      Funny that Republican Corker isn’t complaining about being quoted. How can the Right Wing kvetch about this without going after Corker too?

      • As usual they are trying to shift the blame and/or change the subject. and usually it works because the right learned long ago that if you can set the terms of the discussion, you can almost always win.

  • billbear1961
    • Treant

      Contrary to popular opinion, Napoleon wasn’t short. His height was measured in French inches, and translated to about 5′ 7″ in the English inches used at the time (and today’s inch).

      For the time period, that was an average, or even slightly above-average, height for a man.

      But the image of him being short was useful for propaganda purposes, so the intentional error was kept.

      • billbear1961

        I just read the same thing, T, and decided to use it because he was 5′ 7″, like Corker.

      • billbear1961

        I always thought he was 5′ 2″.

        • Treant

          He was. In French inches, which were longer than English inches.

          So really, that guy on Grindr who says he’s six inches might not be so bad if he’s French. 🙂

  • GayOldLady

    From what I’ve seen and heard from Corker in the past 6 weeks he looks about 10 Feet Tall to me.

    I had a dream last night. It was next January, and Trump was preparing for his first State of the Union address with his Executive Branch in shambles, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn and Roger Stone already in federal custody, and his adult sons and son-in-law under indictment in New York state. Exactly 20 seconds after Turmp begins to speak, the House Sargent at Arms bangs his staff on the floor, FBI agents and Federal marshals file in (and into the Vice President’s office on the other side of downtown) and, with the full cooperation of the Secret Service, arrest the following persons:
    Donald Trump Sr.
    Mike Pence
    Devin Nunes
    Stephen Miller
    Rex Tillerson
    (liddle) Jeff Sessions
    Wilbur Ross
    Mike Pompeo
    Dana Rohrbacher
    Mitch McConnell
    Paul Ryan

    And elsewhere, they arrest:
    Betsy DeVos’ brother
    Ivanka Trump
    Donnie Trump Jr.
    Eric Trump
    Jared Kushner
    Steve Bannon

    • GayOldLady

          OMG You poor thing. I wish there was something I could do.

          • GayOldLady

            It was hideous and I was furious.

            Depending on what the definition of “lady-things” is, I’d say the former. Definitely not the latter. 🙂

          I still believe massive and relentless protests, coupled with economic measures, can save the day.

          Very true indeed. The power elite are kindly letting us enjoy the illusion of freedom.

      Okay, this is freaky, I think they’re putting something in the water. I also had a dream last night (very weird) that I was a new security guard at the back entrance to the White House.

        full color, with smell and conscious control (I can re-wind and do-over, though doing that in an anxiety dream still results in an unpleasant conclusion)

        I’ve composed up to 15 pages of quality non-fiction in dreams a couple of times. I’ve composed up to 15 bars of piano, composed 20 minute speeches, and outlined a whole lot more. I routinely pick out the next day’s clothes while dreaming.

        My dreams are generally realistic (rather than surrealistic), but less mundane than normal life (wish fulfillment?), except that cars don’t have brakes, I win almost all fights (in the short term), and I can soar.

        • Lars Littlefield

      There is a 100% chance that Corker will vote the way Trump wants on any issue except, possibly, impeachment. And I wouldn’t put high odds on him voting for Trump’s impeachment, either.

    • boatboy_srq

      IOW this is the GOP establishment getting revenge for the 2016 primary?

      It’s not, after all, like they’re sufficiently organized to get anything they want through Congress. ACA repeal is marginally less difficult than it was last year; tax reform is failing bigly; virtually every other agenda item is falling on its arse. Even the debt ceiling vote – yes, I know, deficits are only problems for Democrats – failed to “rein in gummint spending” as they are so fond of ‘splaining. If there were a funcrional establishment organization they could handle it themselves and wouldn’t need Corker to speak out. And the Kochs and Mercers don’t seem sufficiently displeased yet to return this batch of Congresscritters for a new one next year.

      My money is on Corker having ties to HEB? or Rmoney, and is yanking Lord Dampnut’s chain on their behalf.

  • JWC

    I read somewhere yesterday, an interseting hypothesis. Could it be possible that Bob Corker , and a league of GOP, know Donny’s weakness and are purposely “baiting and goading ” him The end result is to steer Donny into commens and/or actions whereby it’s a simple strep to evoke the 25th ammendment, Doing this in a constructed manner that the GOP suffers little from the separation because I believe 2018 has them a tad frightened

    • RoFaWh

      Don’t forget that some photos of Trump strongly suggest he wears shoes with lifts in them (or something along those lines).

  • Duh-David

    I am a Democrat from Tennessee, so I can say with absolute certainty that I do not like Bob Corker’s politics, but Trump isn’t even close to being in the same league with him. On any other subject I wouldn’t even consider defending Bob Corker, but Trump makes him shine like a true statesman. At least we don’t have to worry about Senator Corker provoking a nuclear war with a Tweet.

    Just like the recordings that he had of conversations with Comey and the secret information that his detectives told him about Obama’s birth place and the recordings of his comments about grabbing women by the pussy. Forget that last example, it’s the one that’s true.

  • red-diaper-baby 1942

    I hear Trump has challenged Tillerson to an IQ test, to see which one is the greater moron. If Trump loses, perhaps he’ll resign in a snit or temper tantrum — certainly a consummation devoutly to be wished! But more likely he’ll just say the test was rigged.
