The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is accusing Republican Sen. "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I'm dealing with".

Looking at the voting histories of Bannon's targets, some things stand out for sitting Republican senators to consider: It doesn't seem to matter much how conservative you were before Trump came to office if you are not fully pro-Trump today.

"The Failing New York Times set Liddle' Bob Corker up by recording his conversation".

GOP trouble: At the National Journal, political analyst Charlie Cook of the Cook Political Report writes that Trump went to a "darker place" in his Corker criticism, and he now thinks the GOP majority is in jeopardy not only in the Senate but in the House. "Corker and the people of Tennessee", Sanders said. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without.my endorsement).

"I know they're recording it", Corker said of his aides who were also on the line with him and a Times reporter.

Amazon's New Kindle Oasis E-Reader Is Waterproof, Supports Audible Audiobooks
Amazon , I'm told, has also tested it in bath tub and pool water, along with sea water, just to make sure it's holiday-ready. Unlike last year's Oasis , there's no magnetic, snap-on battery cover, but Amazon says battery life is much improved, too.

Firefighters talk to students for Fire Prevention Week
As part of Fire Prevention Week , Sunset Hills is just one of the many stops firefighters will be making. For over 90 years, Fire Prevention Week has brought awareness nationwide to fire safety and preparedness.

Corker, who is not seeking re-election in 2018, disputed Trump's version of events. "I understand we're on the record".

Apparently unwilling to let Corker's "adult day care center" barb be the last word, Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that Corker was an ineffective senator and could not "get the job done".

Trump continued his feud with Corker during a Tuesday meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, pushing back on the senator's statement that Trump is putting the United States on a path toward World War III. Trump believes USA corporations are the highest taxed in the world and that the people of the United States desperately want to be relieved of burdensome taxes.

Both Trump and Corker entered politics after careers as business executives, both in real estate and construction, and their shared backgrounds gave them a level of mutual understanding at a time when few in Congress can claim to understand the president's motivations.

The feud is odd because Corker was briefly considered as a vice president running mate during the 2016 campaign.
