‘Alert the daycare staff’: Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker trolls Trump after Twitter meltdown

Published

on

President Donald Trump went on another rant Sunday against Republican Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, who is leaving the body after two terms. Corker had pledged to only serve two terms in the office, despite Trump begging him to run again.

Corker lit the ‘presidential bridge’ on fire on his way out of Washington, DC this week, which lead the president into another Twitter meltdown.

“Look, I’m saddened,” Corker said about the announcement by Gen. James Mattis he’d be resigning as Defense Secretary. “We’ve been working with allies for some 60 coalition groups that are working with us. The SDF, which is made up of Kurds and Arabs, have been doing the fighting for us. We’ve been helping them do what they’re doing, but they’re the ones doing the fighting.”

“I’m saddened for the broken relationships with countries that have been with us,” he continued. “I’m saddened for the many Kurds and others that likely will be killed and slaughtered by either the Syrians or the Turks. I’m saddened for our country in being so unreliable.”

Corker also told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Trump’s war against Congress for his border wall was nothing more than “juvenile.”

Hours later, Trump apparently saw the footage and struck out on Twitter.

“Senator Bob Corker just stated that, “I’m so priveledged [sic] to serve in the Senate for twelve years, and that’s what I told the people of our state that’s what I’d do, serve for two terms.’ But that is Not True – wanted to run but poll numbers TANKED when I wouldn’t endorse him,” Trump tweeted. “Bob Corker was responsible for giving us the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal, which I ended, yet he badmouths me for wanting to bring our young people safely back home. Bob wanted to run and asked for my endorsement. I said NO and the game was over. #MAGA I LOVE TENNESSEE!”

Corker fired back, calling for the presidential “daycare staff” to be alerted.

Trump tweets out bonkers conspiracy theory that Google ‘manipulated’ up to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted out a bonkers conspiracy theory claiming that Google "manipulated" up to 16 million votes on behalf of former Democratic rival during the 2016 presidential election.

"Wow, Report Just Out!" the president wrote. "Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!"

Trump’s economic adviser doesn’t see a recession coming — but he said the same thing in 2008

Published

on

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser insists there are no signs of a recession on the horizon -- but he's been staggeringly wrong before.

Larry Kudlow went on NBC's "Meet the Press" over the weekend to assure viewers that no economic downturn was coming, but the Washington Post's Aaron Blake pointed out that his track record for predictions was pitiful.

“Well, I’ll tell you what: I sure don’t see a recession,” Kudlow told host Chuck Todd. “So I think actually the second half, the economy’s going to be very good in 2019.”

‘A heat-seeking missile for Trump’s ass’: Mike Pompeo torn to shreds by ex-US officials in brutal New Yorker profile

Published

on

The New Yorker has published a profile of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this week and it features some very unflattering quotes about him from former colleagues.

The piece discusses how Pompeo has gone from being a Trump critic during the 2016 presidential election to being one of his most loyal defenders. One former White House official tells the publication that "there will never be any daylight publicly between [Pompeo] and Trump" and described the secretary of state as "among the most sycophantic and obsequious people around Trump."
