‘Bob has big plans’: GOP Sen. Corker’s feud with Trump fuels speculation of impeachment

Published

on

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) fired back at President Donald Trump on Sunday morning, and their Twitter feud fueled speculation the outgoing senator may call for impeachment.

The Tennessee Republican announced last month that he would not seek re-election next year, and the former Trump defender has criticized the president’s temperament and fitness for office.

Trump attacked the 65-year-old Corker on Twitter, claiming the senator had begged for his endorsement and decided to drop out after the president refused.

Corker responded an hour later by insulting the president’s maturity.

“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center,” Corker tweeted. “Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

Corker, who had been considered a candidate to serve as Trump’s secretary of state, strongly questioned the president’s stability and competence after his moral equivocation on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

That criticism, and his decision to leave the Senate when his second term ends, prompted speculation that he might lead the Republican charge to impeach Trump.

Corker’s insult Sunday morning only added to that speculation.

Trump has used the term to reference the Russia scandal, the Ukraine scandal, cases against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, his friend Roger Stone and any other topics he chooses on any given day.

"Do you have a reaction to the Supreme Court rulings today?" asked a reporter that sounded like CNN's Kaitlan Collins.

"The rulings we're basically starting all over again," Trump said. "This is a political witch-hunt... it's a witch-hunt, it's a hoax, just like the Mueller investigation... this is purely political..."

Published

on

After President Trump threatened to pull the Republican National Convention out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis launched a push to bring the convention to his state. But according to a report from The New York Times, DeSantis is now hindering his state's efforts to bring in the event.

"Mr. DeSantis, a Republican, has directed his top fund-raiser, Heather Barker, to tell donors not to give to the convention because of a personal dispute between the governor and Susie Wiles, his former campaign manager who is serving as an informal adviser to the convention planners, according to multiple people familiar with his actions," the Times' Annie Karni and Patricia Mazzei write.
