Sen. Bob Corker seemed to speak for many in Washington including a lot of Republicans when he unloaded on President Trump in an interview with The New York Times, in which he described the president as reckless and his White House as a reality show.
Earlier, Corker, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, designated Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as the men who separate our country from chaos, the implication being without these adults, hindering him, Trump would set the nation on a path to World War III. But theres one problem with Corkers narrative. It so happens that on a key issue where Corker and the adults are supposedly stopping Trump from driving the country into a ditch his effort to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal hes right and theyre wrong. Its easy to understand why the GOP establishment is exasperated with him. Trump generally doesnt know what hes talking about and, even when hes acting responsibly, he does so in a manner that leaves everyone with a bad taste in their mouths. His willingness to say anything even things that are obviously not true about those who cross him may delight his base but it comes with a cost.
As such, his credibility is shot with many in Congress whose support he needs to enact change.
A lot of otherwise smart and sober people in Washington just arent listening to Trump on Iran. They understand that President Barack Obamas signature foreign-policy accomplishment didnt freeze Irans nuclear program in fact, it laid the foundation for international acceptance of an Iranian nuke because the restrictions in the agreement will expire in a decade.

Face it. Obama acquiesced to the bizarre, medieval mullahs acquiring nuclear weapons. He did all he could to preserve their regime. The strategic significance is even worse than the accommodations that the Clinton Administration allowed North Korea in 1994 that allowed the criminal regime in North Korea the means to develop and possess nuclear weapons. Trump must now deal with all the embedded Obama commissars at Sate, Defense, CIA, NSA, FBI and the military. He has yet not been able to fully take the reins of power and is even saddled with a disloyal Cabinet in key positions. He is finding it very difficult to make policy changes.
Corker stood the Constitution on its head to make it possible for the Kenyanesian Usurper to get his Iran “deal”.
He should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.
We will be paying for the failure of our elected and appointed to uphold the Constitution for generations.
The Kenyanesian Usurpation should never have been allowed to happen.
EVERYONE in the District of Corruption is complicit in this violation of the Constitution.
We must NEVER allow another non-natural born citizen to usurp the office.
Born here of citizen parents.
Accept no other.
Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Keith Ellison, Bernie Sanders, Maxine Waters and I’m sure you can think of plenty of others who were born here of citizen parents and would do just as much if not more damage than Obama did. America is sick. Obama was just a symptom.

Resident Obama laid the groudwork for Ezekiel 38. Or perhaps more accurately, financed it. Title shortened on purpose.
Yep, North Korea, too. The President is only expressing in the very best way, what the best strategic and diplomatic minds on the planet are advising. Sometimes, receding in the face of menacing by bullies only baits them to attack. There are times for receding and times for advancing. A man or a nation should not choose receding as a posture for every situation.
Corker is angry that he was rejected for Secretary of State. He is angry that Breitbart exposed his corruption.
Corker is speaking out of personal anger that has little to do with reality outside his personal disasters.
His criticism is my praise.
It's about time we had a reality show. Trump is exposing these nefarious bastards for who they are. Of course they don't like it. When the light is finally shone upon people whose deeds are dark and secret, they recoil and scream for the light to stop.
This is what I hoped Trump would do, and it is happening.
I don't want chaos; but if it appears so as the truth is being rooted out, I'm OK with it. DC needed to be exposed.
Extremely well said, with an amazing economy of words.
