Freedom Caucus Chairman: I am a Lame Coward

Trump attacked Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) seemingly out of nowhere over the weekend because Corker said he would not support a tax cut bill that adds to the federal deficit.

Senator Corker, who recently announced his retirement, responded to Trump in a way that only a Republican who's run out of fucks to give would.

Senator Corker and his aids have also shared more specific concerns about Trump with the press. Corker fears that chief of staff John Kelly and other members of Trump's cabinet are the only thing preventing him from starting World War III.

WASHINGTON — 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.”

Yes, Trump should concern anyone who cares about the nation, a group of people that may or may not include Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows.

Meadows told Associated Press reporter Erica Werner that the only reason Corker is being this "bold" is because he's retiring.

That may be true, but what does that say about Mark Meadows himself? This is an inadvertent admission that being reelected is more important to him and his colleagues than human life.

If certain members of Congress can only be "bold" when they're on their way out, perhaps more members should be on their way out.

    Cowards. And intellectually and morally bankrupt. It is why they need to stifle dissent. Because they cannot really answer it except without admitting that the dissent is right and they are wrong and dangerously wrong.
    You want to “respect the troops”? Then act like their lives actually matter to you.
