Sen. Bob Corker: I Don’t Think There’s Any Question Donald Trump Is “Debasing The Nation”

Speaking to reporters this morning, Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee was asked by Mary K. Bruce of ABC News if he felt Donald Trump was “debasing” the United States with his behavior.

Corker was unequivocal in his response: “I don’t think there’s any question.”

In the same interview, Corker said he had hoped Trump would “rise to the occasion as president to lead our nation, instead of dividing it.”

Watch below.

In another interview with CNN, Corker had much more to say, including:

“I would hope the staff over there would figure out ways of controlling him when they know that everything he said today was absolutely untrue.”

“I think that he’s proven himself unable to rise to the occasion … I don’t think that that’s possible. He’s obviously not going to rise to the occasion as president.”

“The President has great difficulty with the truth. On many issues.”

“I don’t know why he lowers himself to such a low, low standard, and debases our country in a way that he does, but he does.”

“I think world leaders are very aware that much of what he says is untrue.”

Clearly, the Trumpster was watching. Check out the Twitter rant below from Trump this morning.

But Corker won the exchange tweeting, “Same untruths from an utterly untruthful president.” #AlertTheDayCareStaff

The hashtag #AlertTheDayCareStaff immediately began trending on Twitter.

File this one under “Infighting is funny.” It’s obvious that Corker, who has announced he will not seek reelection next year, has zero fucks left to give about the Trump presidency.
