Trump just lambasted a Republican Senator to boost his own ego in a delusional tweet storm

Stuck in the White House instead of luxuriating in the bloated tackiness of his Mar-a-Lago resort due to his own peevish government shutdown, President Trump has had plenty of time to brood over his perceived enemies and tweet out whatever random brain fart ignites his synapses after watching another segment of Fox News.

His latest emission was aimed at a member of his own party, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN). Corker has earned the president’s ire by being one of the few Republican Senators willing to publicly express his differences of opinions with Trump verbally, even though his voting record has aligned with Trump’s agenda 84% of the time.

One doesn’t need to scan for the checkmark next to Trump’s name to ascertain that these are verified tweets composed by the president himself. The misspelling of “priveledged” and the random capitalization is proof enough that no mere White House staffer wrote this for a president who eschews the modern conveniences of automated spell-checking.

Trump’s gratuitous insult to a departing Senator from within his own party is indicative of his sociopathic inability to abandon grudges against anyone who would dare to question or oppose him in any way, as Senator Corker has felt relatively free to do since he unburdened himself of the necessity of pandering to Trump supporters in a reelection bid.

Only a president as justifiably insecure of his abilities as Trump would feel the need to turn Senator Corker’s valedictory speech into an opportunity to impose dominance and assert some imaginary magical endorsement powers as the true motivation behind the Tennessee Senator’s decision to forgo another term.

Oddly, Trump’s allegedly all-powerful seal of approval did not seem to assist the 40 candidates who lost their seats in the House of Representatives in the midterms. Nor, with a few exceptions, did it help the majority of Republican Senatorial candidates who ran against incumbent Democrats in traditionally red states. Even in races where there was no incumbent, a Trump endorsement was no guarantee of victory. Just ask Roy Moore or Martha McSally.

In those competitive races where the president’s favored candidate did succeed, like Rick Scott in Florida, the victory is likely more attributable to Republican voter-suppression and election fraud than to any benediction from Trump.

Only an extremely foolish politician would demonstrate such a vindictive lack of respect and loyalty to Senators within his own party, particularly when the chances of those GOP stalwarts being forced to determine the guilt of the president if — or more hopefully, when — articles of impeachment pass a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.

Elephants are traditionally known for their memories, and with Republican Senators already questioning the value of being associated with a felonious un-indicted (as far as we know) co-conspirator who is undermining our international alliances to benefit the foreign adversary who helped get him elected, tweets like Trump’s undeserved attack on Senator Corker today may stay lodged in the memory banks of Senators from the party whose very symbol evokes the persistence of recollection.
