(Miami Herald) -- Yes, he’s childish and incompetent. Is that really news by now?
But of course, it wasn’t that assessment of “failed President Trump” that made jaws drop over the weekend so much as it was the person making it. Meaning Sen. Bob Corker, who unleashed an extraordinary barrage of contempt on Twitter and in a New York Times interview.
The Tennessee Republican referred to the White House as an “adult day care center,” accused the failed president of treating his office like “a reality show” and fretted that he was steering the nation into “World War III” with his reckless behavior. Significantly, Corker, who is a lame duck, said that every Republican in the Senates realizes this, though they won’t say it openly.

And this was only one of two recent headlines about Trump being blasted by friendly fire. The Corker story broke just days after NBC News reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him “a moron” following a meeting in July. For the record, a spokeswoman belatedly denied Tillerson used that word, but NBC is standing by its report and CNN later verified the quote independently.
