Corker uncorked

Postby Hawktawk » Tue Oct 10, 2017 4:56 am

Following the Charlottesville debacle conservative Tennessee Senator Bob Corker made the following comment" The president has not yet demonstrated some of the competency or stability needed to be successful".

There was the predictable push back from spokespig Sanders. Last weekend Trump launched a twitter storm on Corker mocking his supposed groveling for cabinet posts and begging for an endorsement etc. This prompted Corker to respond"its too bad the white house has become an adult day care facility. Someone missed their shift this morning". Even more ominously Corker stated monday that Trump may be placing us on "a path to WWIII" with his erratic comments and behavior "tweeting stuff out".
Welcome aboard Bob! I've been saying it for 2 years. The man is an unhinged unstable lunatic.
The muted deferential and personally supportive response by members of the senate to the explosive comments mirror what reporters are saying they are telling them privately.

Everyone pretty much agrees with Corker.....They just see no sense in piling on right now.Corker took one for the team by not running in 2018 so he can be the conscience of the senate republicans. I think he understands the future of our survival is more important than winning a race.
Apparently Trump is increasingly flying into rages, bouncing around the white house screaming about his enemies to a degree general Kelley is scrambling to manage it.

We have never been in more peril as a nation. Its time to take a serious look at removing this danger from office under 25th amendment, whatever.
Pence may be a political grandstander but he can surely fly the plane...

Why can't you have a rational viewpoint? Can you manage it? I doubt it, but can you at least try. You have few more years of Trump. You can last. If he wins reelection, I will be more shocked than when he first won. Work hard to ensure he doesn't get reelected. It's obvious your already tenuous sanity couldn't handle it.

I'd say there are as many that see his viewpoint as more rational than yours as there are that see yours as more rational.

Exactly Bob, I thought the OP was on point, and so is Corker.

Everywhere but Faux news is reporting today that during a national security briefing this summer Trump REPEATEDLY asked his military and national security people WHY WE COULDN'T USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS IF WE HAVE THEM. He also repeatedly suggested we should enlarge our nuclear arsenal X10!!!!! Military brass was "shaken".

It was at that time following the meeting that some leaders in the cabinet stayed behind and another truth teller Tillerson made the comment that Rump was a" F@#k!ng Moron" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I concur but really it isn't funny anymore. This administration leaks worse than any other because honorable COMPETENT americans are scared and the closer they are to loony tunes the more worried they are.
As Corker said last week"Mattis, Kelley, and Tillerson are that which separates the nation from CHAOS. Their main task is to try to contain him on a daily basis"

Stuff it asea. You're in the 30 something percent club still riding donalds chub.
I guess something like 57 % who oppose the guy and fear his instability are all weak minded while the 22 % who STRONGLY support the guy and like his tweeting are the stable ones..

Wow, talk about Faux news... I guess that applies to you for reporting hear-say in a NS briefing.
Corker took one for the team by not running in 2018 so he can be the conscience of the senate republicans.

that says it all. Fake senators who won't tell the people the truth because they won't be reelected. I'm tired of being lied to.

Corker knows he can't get reelected because he gave the dems cover in ratifying the Iran Nuke deal (and you want to talk about who wants to use nukes? Classic) Corker didn't take anything for the team, he cut his own reelection hopes short and he knew it. Now he wants you to think he's magnanamous... That's rich.

Then they are irrational. This whole it's just an opinion, so it holds equal weight has and always will be a stupid point of view. It's coddling insane people and their foolish ideas.

Trump's some guy that will leave office in four years. We might be a better run nation if the idiots wouldn't turn men like Trump into a figure bigger than he is. We could literally vacate the presidency at this point and likely not have much of an effect on the nation. Yet people like hawktawk are acting like electing this guy is somehow the end of the world. It's dumb as all get up. It's tiresome.

I won't disagree with anything except for the underlined portion.

You really have a short frame of reference if you think that we are in greater peril today than we were in September of 2001, December of 1941, or October of 1929, not to mention times like the Cuban missile crisis, Watergate, or the assassinations and riots of the 60's, and that's just going back less than a century.

You need to give up your thought about removal from office via the 25th. Here's the section of the 25th that applies to your fantasy:

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

That language was inspired by Woodrow Wilson having suffered a stroke, a physical condition that's easy to medically diagnose, while he was in office. It was never intended to provide an accommodation for subjective opinions on mental stability such as you are claiming. The only rational hope for removing Trump from office before the 2020 elections is if the Mueller investigation bears significant fruit, in which case there would be a long drawn out impeachment process in what is now a Republican dominated Congress, or if Trump himself decides to step down.

Yeah that's how it works, anyone that doesn't see things the same as you is simply irrational ...

And I still say he doesn't last a full term.

Bannon said yesterday he sees a 30% chance Trump finishes his first term. He also said he warned the president he could be in more danger of being removed under the 25th amendment than impeachment . He said Trump asked what that is...


My money is on Mueller frankly and the sooner the better.

RD. We have never had a madman holding the nuclear football before, a man who is fascinated with nuclear weapons, talks about them with a gleam in his eye and makes veiled threats to use them all the time.
He seems hell bent on goading NK to attack based on his tweeting and public comments utterly dismissing a diplomatic solution. His likely withdrawal from the Iran deal further alienates America from our allies as well as geopolitical foes such as Russia and China.

Lost in all the little rocket man stuff is the fact that Vlad Putin has already said Trump may lead us to a "global catastrophe" with his warmongering.
For all the hand wringing about NKs nukes how about the two countries actually on the border of NK , Russia and China who have 10 thousand nukes already locked on specific targets in the US and elsewhere??
A shooting war in that region could be WW3, just as Corker and others have warned. Yet the mad tweeter pops off whatever is in his pea brain at the moment.

We have never been in more peril as a nation with this wingnut flying the plane. I obviously hope nothing goes down but its as dangerous a time as has ever existed due to nukes in Trumps hands,, period.

Id Hawkman. Faux is the fake news but even a few of their anchors such as Shep Smith and Neil Cavuto are speaking out. And you need to just shut off the TV when the best liar I've ever heard Sarah Huckabee Sanders is recreating reality.
BOB CORKER VOTED AGAINST THE IRAN NUKE DEAL.
More fake news from the Trump administration like every other damn day.

Thank god for the Bob Corkers of the world who have the balls to tell the truth.We need hundreds more on capitol hill to come to their senses. One way or another this isn't going to end well.Might as well get it over with sooner than later so the country can be safe from this madman.

Why doesn't Twitter just ban his account?

Too much free advertisement?
