Corker Responds To Trump Slam: "White House Has Become An Adult Day Care Center"

The bitter sentiment between President Trump and soon-to-be-former Senator Bob Corker was launched into the public eye this morning.

In a series of early morning tweets, President Trump lashed out at the Tennessee Republican, exposing some 'inside-the-beltway' scoop...

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).

 

He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said "NO THANKS." He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!

 

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!

 

Senator Corker did not take kindly to these 'facts' being exposed and responded very directly...

 

“It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center,” Corker said.

 

“Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

 

The latter part of the tweet seems like a clear shot across the bow at Chief of Staff Kelly, who many have opined is responsible for 'managing' Trump's outbursts.

 

We suspect this feud is far from over.

So you know, Gallup Poll predicted that Trump was going to win Florida and that Clinton was going to win the popular vote. On the electoral college Gallup Poll was too close “margin of error” but they had Hillary wining. Their big miss was Wisconsin.   Anyway, Tea is into something that you all are missing. Tea Pain‏ @TeaPainUSA If Bob Corker leads the charge to impeach Trump, he will be the "Savior" of the GOP and win Dem respect along the way. Bob has big plans.

Because the love for Trump by his base is immune of reality. Trump is not what they think he is. And Trump is going to learn the lesson the hard way as well, by his presidency turning into a total failure, if not something worse. A politician to succeed needs to be focus, patient, and not insulting, because the President needs strong coalitions. Trump doesn’t possess any of these requirements so his agenda will never get done.

I live in TN. Blackburn is a fake-ass neocon who knows how to put on a good show for the plebs.Blackburn = Corker 2.0: Now With Even More Vagina!I'm hoping someone will step up. And no, it can't be me. I'm the guy who looks you in the eye and tells you to go get fucked. That doesn't win votes, I'm afraid.Glenn Jacobs, known as Kane the WWE wrestler, is actually a libertarian, and from what I know, a good guy. If ZH wants to do some good, they might try to help start a national grassroots brushfire, to convince him to run.Blackburn will be just another Swamp Rat. Fact.

Escrava we all have Bias. Perhaps you have a presidency bias for Statesman like behavior, diplomatic behavior, participant in multilateral treaties and agreements.

I think I understand. I have not really followed you much since the Trump Election. I say Donald Trump ran as a populist and said the right things and about things that count. What he is or seeks is still up in the air. Billionaire who may not fix anything.

- US is full of systems, we need Massive Reforms for most everything we can think of
- Can USA Reform, Demand Reform while still being a light for the world, the Biased World, the Slanted understanding of the World?
- Maybe I am a broken record like other older folks
- I'm not a Traditionalist, but USA lost it's roots, lost it's understanding of being created as a backlash against European Corruption, European Elitism, European Intolerance

Isn't that Correct?

TeethVillage88s, US, if one bothers to look at it carefully, will find out that: US Republic has being working pretty much how it was established by the founding fathers. I believe that the founding fathers would be very proud of the US today. The opulent minority runs the nation. US empire expanded beyond salt water. US has total dominance of its domain ‘The Americas’. The only thing that the founding fathers would be surprised, if not shocked, is why Cuba is not in our domain. So to answer for your question, the US did not lose its roots at all but, it has some immediate problems such as lack of opportunities and inequality. Now we have a President that told us that he will Make America Great Again and I wish him luck. Basically, I have three problems with Trump: Healthcare, geopolitical, and taxes. If Trump would ask my opinion I would tell him to raise taxes on the wealth Americans and government workers. On the healthcare I would pass an amendment giving power to the government to negotiate hospital, drugs, and administrative costs down. If the prices were cut down 10 percent, your insurance premium would go down 10 percent or that that money would have to be allocate to hire more doctors and nurses. On the geopolitical arena I would make sure that the oil can never go over $50 dollars a barrel. However, these three sectors will not solve the job problem. For that new money needs to be created. Given it back to the states will make these matters worse. The federal government needs to lead here.

Thanks for fair response.

I didn't down vote you, but feel you oppose sweeping reforms.

- Your reforms won't change shit
- Your response is kind of honest, so I don't ping you
- Elitism has ruled the world for 5,000 years, you actually gave up the reforms from Magna Carte, Ur Nammu, Code of Hammurabi... so I'd say you are ignorant
- Put the Laws in a Stone or Stele... or you just are kidding yourself
- Reforms are like 5,000 or 6,000 years old - don't bullshit us with half measures like Corker

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_of_Hammurabi

Now you serve corruption.

Poor Escrava, what does he really know about Trump or his supporters, perhaps, Escavara Isaura isn't what he thinks he is? (Who knows what he thinks he is?) Every one is welcome to Pontificate here but don't take yourself too seriously no one else does, so it is all in fun, a way to release something I can't define!The best blog site ever was the old XOM board on Yahoo Finance, we had great conversations there, that is where I met The Wahlee, the legendary poster Wahlee, he knew how to draw a crowd, Wahlee was so successful that they modified the board to make it more difficult to post, if you see this Wahlee give us a sign so we will know that you aren't dead, that the fight for Justice for the underdog is still continuing! Thank you Wahleee you are the best!

I supported Trump and to a degree still support him. Of course, the man is a very dangerous person to put in charge of the United States, as there is no way of knowing what he is actually thinking and what he will actually do. He appears to be a master of propaganda. And ultimately we have no clue what his long game is, although we can speculate.

We knew his faults well and supported him anyway. It was the right choice considering the alternative and really is mostly an expression of contempt for commie, faggot vermin and vag helmets like yourself. I would have voted for literally anyone over that corrupt, satanic, murderous bitch and her pedo brigade.Trump has already served his purpose. He has finished off the old media and showed how weak the establishment really is.As a president he's the perfect parody of an authority figure and his antics are endlessly amusing. The fact it triggers dick jugglers and Marxists is like a gift that keeps on giving.

Corker’s state has an extremely low per-capita income and a ton of low-wage, part-time, temp and churn jobs at $10 per hour (or less). Needless to say, a high percentage of those in-substantial jobs lack insurance benefits.

Many Southern offices are staffed with about 98% mommas, and many of the mom-clique employees are sole breadwinners, working the 20 hours required by welfare “reform,” with their low wages propped up by free food, free or reduced-cost rent, monthly cash assistance and child tax credits between $3,337 and $6,269, issued in increasing amounts on a pay-per-birth basis.

A few of the mom-clique workers are married with spousal income to boost up their low wages in “socially conservative” Southern states, like Corker’s.

Funny that Senator Corker uses a daycare analogy. Southern employers offer juvenile-cubed consolations to their momma-dominated workforce make up for the rock-bottom pay.

Southern mom-clique workplaces resemble nothing more than a daycare, with the teacher’s pet mom workers watching each other’s backs as they leave work constantly for protracted periods — whole mornings, whole afternoons, whole weeks — with no repercussions for bad behavior from their momma (and/or fellow parent) managers.

When at work, these mature and often unlicensed mom-clique employees in financial services back offices, in many large-scale sales offices and in many other types of office settings that have nothing to do with kids spend a lot of time on the following daycare-inspired activities:

1) bring-a-photo bulletin board decorating contest, where financial services employees decorate bulletin boards with Glitter Glue, sequins and photos of moms and babies, after which the employees vote on which mom worker looks the most like her baby;

2) Halloween dress-up day, cubicle-decorating contest and parent/kid dress-up email exchange;

3) Adult cubicle Easter egg hunt, with candy and postcard prizes that feature scenes mocking the non-career-holding housewives of the Fifties;

4) Spin-the-wheel contest with candy prizes;

5) Etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.

In mom-dominated workplaces in the South, it is ultra important to participate in these daycare-center-like activities with [[[[[[maximum]]]]]] enthusiasm. It is much more important to job longevity than the following:

1) coming to work every day,

2) staying through the entire work day,

3) generating a high number of new business sales,

4) retaining a high number of accounts,

5) and other non-daycare-like activities.

Moms hire and retain mostly their fellow daycare yahoos, operating in back-watching absenteeism packs, and they get away with it because employers know they have “somethin’ comin’ in” to cover their major household bills, like a spousal income, a child support check that covers rent or monthly welfare and refundable child-tax-credit welfare checks up to $6,269, which, at the high end, are equivalent to 4 months of wages in many Southern jobs.

Employers like a workforce that can accept extremely low pay due to unearned income, and they go to all lengths to entertain these mom workers and to excuse their extreme absenteeism, even when they leave work at the busiest time of the day — every day — inconveniencing paying customers. In Southern mom-dominated office jobs, the mommas miss their shifts a lot.

That is what the employers like: a frequently absentee, daycare-grade workforce that can accept very low pay due to major household bills paid by spouses, ex spouses or Uncle Sam and the US Treasury Department.

Another group of employees that Southern employers like also often enjoys free groceries compliments of taxpayers and child-tax-credit, cash-assistance welfare checks up to $6,269: illegal aliens who often get between $450 and $800 per month in EBT via the 8 paycheck stubs of a sole, male breadwinner and the SS cards of multiple, US-born children.

Oh shut up with your pretend two-party bullshit. Anyone can tell that even the Right is completely divided by Trump. If anyone is a Leftist it is him, as his divisive stupidity has the Right at each other's throats over nothing.The only people who support this hyper-ziocon are alt-ziocon dotards. I'm sure there's a lot of alphabet idiocracy in there too.

Hes going after the establishment - most do not give a fuck whether he divides the republican party or not. They are divided because of the scum. The scum on either side cant have someone with no political experience suddenly win the Presidency AND then undo everything theyve done while keeping his promises to American people. The establishment would automatically never be elected again. Its quite simple.....Also whether he is with Goldman or not doesnt matter - Goldman is too powerful anyway. Trump realizes that.

Now, it turns out Tennessee Senator Bob Corker - who you might recall had a run in or two with Ben Bernanke and once penned a scathing FT Op-Ed about the market’s unhealthy fixation with the Fed - failed to disclose millions in income from hedge funds and real estate investments.

As WSJ reports, “Mr. Corker late Friday filed a series of amendments showing that his personal financial reports as originally filed included dozens of errors and omissions.”
