Addressing the elephant in the room

Senator Bob Corker is part of the Swamp, it’s official

Senator Bob Corker

It is a shame Senator Bob Corker is retiring after three terms in the United States Senate. Tennesseans should get the opportunity to “Drain the swamp” for themselves. Make no mistake about it Corker is part of ground zero of “The swamp” that Trump has repeatedly referred to.

Senator Bob Corker represents the Washington establishment. A group of elitist who feel they are way smarter than anyone else.They are way more powerful than anyone else. They have been bought out by Washington lobbyist, the insurance companies and special interest. And this week President Trump’s accused Corker of blocking his agenda.

“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement),” Trump said in a series of tweets. “He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!”

He added, “Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn’t have the guts to run!”

People should learn that Trump is not to be screwed with. He has not gotten where he is in business by backing down from conflict. Trump escalated his attack on Senator Bob Corker on Tuesday by ridiculing him for his height, even as advisors wanted him to back down prior to next weeks tax cut vote..

Mr. Trump gave Mr. Corker, a two-term Republican from Tennessee and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a derogatory new nickname — “Liddle Bob” — after the two exchanged barbs in recent days. He suggested Mr. Corker was somehow tricked when he told The The New York Times that the president was reckless and could stumble into a nuclear war.

For his part Corker has lost the battle. He recently decided not to run for re-election. So Trump is has a long way to go but he is succeeding in “draining the swamp”.
