‘Tennessee not happy!’ Trump attacks another GOP senator who questioned his fitness

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday publicly attacked yet another Republican senator by name.

In a tweet posted on Friday morning, Trump slammed Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) for questioning his fitness and competence to be president.

“Strange statement by Bob Corker considering that he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in ’18,” the president wrote. “Tennessee not happy!”

Last week, Corker said that Trump “has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful,” while also suggesting that the president ” has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.”

Corker is the fifth Republican lawmaker that Trump has attacked publicly this week, along with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Trump has made attacking members of his own party a staple of his governing strategy — as CNN’s Chris Cillizza notes, Trump has now publicly lashed out at 20 percent of currently serving Republican senators.

CNN’s Camerota baffled as GOP senator spins Chuck Schumer power-grab conspiracy theory

Published

on

CNN host Alisyn Camerota seemed visibly stunned on Friday morning as a Republican senator spun an elaborate conspiracy theory about Sen. Chuck Schumer by claiming the impeachment trial of Donald Trump is just a cover for the New York Democrat to make himself Senate majority leader.

Defending President  Trump, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) complained about having to watch videos of House impeachment hearing witnesses multiple times during the Senate impeachment trial, before turning his ire on Schumer.

"You know, Alisyn, what this is about -- and Chuck Schumer has been out front about it -- this isn't about removing the president. It's about Chuck Schumer trying to become the majority leader in the United States Senate," he accused. "He has targeted specific members of the Senate. He has attacked the Senate, the process, the senators [by] running commercials against them."

CNN’s Avlon snaps at GOP senators whining about the ‘hassle’ of impeachment: ‘Do your jobs!’

Published

on

During a CNN "New Day" segment on the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, normally staid contributor John Avlon lost his temper when talking about GOP lawmakers who have been complaining about having to sit through the hearings, angrily telling them "Do your jobs!"

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Avlon first bashed the Republicans for blocking subpoenaing impeachment evidence and blocking witnesses -- and then complaining that they haven't seen anything new.

"They're [GOP lawmakers] coming under pressure from the Trump White House and the Senate leadership, but just take a second to really look at the argument they're making," Avlon began. "The Senate is pushing this idea that they're not going to get witnesses anyway, because Trump's team will block it. That's totally circular because they're arguing at the same time they should have got the information that's being blocked by the Trump White House."
