It’s All About Debase

The weird and disturbing clash between President Trump and GOP Senator Bob Corker emerged once again on Tuesday. The president reacted to some Corker interviews with a series of hate-Tweets. Corker responded: “Unfortunately I think world leaders are aware that much of what he says is untrue … I don’t know why he lowers himself to such a low, low standard and debases himself and our country in the way that he does … He’s obviously not going to rise to the occasion as president … and it affects young people. We have young people who are for the first time watching a president stating absolute non-truths nonstop, personalizing things in the way that he does, and it’s very sad for our nation.”

+ Arizona Jeff Flake says he will retire, citing the direction of GOP under Trump: “We must stop pretending that the conduct of some in our executive branch are normal. They are not normal. Reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior has become excused as telling it like it is when it is actually reckless, outrageous and undignified … It is often said that children are watching. Well, they are. And what are we doing to do about that? When the next generation asks us, why didn’t you do something? Why didn’t you speak up? What are we going to say? I rise to say, enough!” Here’s the speech.
