President Donald Trump gets a slight present this week as two of his biggest vocal critics from the GOP are leaving the senate. Arizona Senator Jeff Flake and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker are on their way out. "Flake once said the "presidency has been debased" by Donald Trump, saying the commander-in-chief has a “bottomless appetite for destruction and division." Corker called the White House an "adult day care center" and then was doubtful about if Trump had "the stability nor some of the competence” to serve as president."
Flake and Corker were two of Trump's major critics from the GOP, so Trump must be happy they are both retiring from the Senate. Fox News reported that "Flake and Corker engaged in a war of words with the president on myriad issues over the past 18 months, generating headlines and fiery tweets from a president who generally insists on getting the last word. Those battles put them on the outs with many in their own party, and they paid a price. Both decided to retire rather than take on a difficult re-election campaign."
They continued that Flake was Trump's most consistent critic among the Senate Republicans. Flake was also once trapped in an elevator getting trashed by liberals during the Kavanaugh hearing, painting him as a complete beta male considering he appeared to be unable to stand up for himself. When it comes to Corker, Trump didn't like his "adult day care" comment, so he called Corker "Liddle Bob Corker."
"The feud continued as Corker headed for the exits, with Trump asserting that Corker's promise to serve only two terms was not the real reason he retired. Rather, Corker "wanted to run but poll numbers TANKED when I wouldn't endorse him," Trump tweeted.
Corker replied: "Yes, just like Mexico is paying for the wall... #AlertTheDaycareStaff."
The big question now is this - who becomes Trump's new biggest critics from the GOP?
Fox News' article stated that at least 9/10 Republicans support Trump.
Will any GOP member turn their back on Trump now, or will they support each other?
