“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.” Pretty much everyone on social media read that retort issued by Senator Bob Corker after he became the latest target of a presidential tweetstorm. The comments from the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee grew more ominous in a follow-up interview with the NYT in which he suggested “that President Trump was treating his office like ‘a reality show,’ with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation ‘on the path to World War III.'”

+ The Atlantic’s James Fallows argues that saying what everyone else is thinking isn’t enough: “This situation is not normal. It is not safe. And the group which for now has a monopoly on legislative and investigative power in Washington, Corker’s own Republican Party, has an obligation to the country’s past and its future to do something about it. Talk is better than nothing, but action is what counts.”
