Bob Corker Reportedly Disparages Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter

Do you listen to Rush Limbaugh on the radio or read Ann Coulter’s columns?

According to outgoing Tennessee U.S. Republican Sen. Bob Corker, you’re following a couple of tyrants.

This according to CNN and The Memphis Commercial Appeal, which portrayed Corker as upset over Limbaugh’s and Coulter’s criticism of the lack of a deal to fund the border wall.

According to the paper, Coulter recently called U.S. Republican President Donald Trump “gutless” and said he oversees “a joke presidency that scammed the American people.” Coulter also said she and most of Trump’s supporters won’t vote for him in 2020 if there is no border wall.

Limbaugh, meanwhile, complained last week that Democrats were outmaneuvering Trump on the border wall issue. Limbaugh later said Trump told him he would fund the border wall or he’d shut the federal government down.

“CNN reporter Manu Raju reported on Friday that Corker criticized the radio hosts and how Trump has responded,” according to The Commercial Appeal.

“Do we succumb to tyranny of radio talk show hosts?” Raju quotes Corker as saying. “We have two talk radio hosts who influenced the president – that’s tyranny isn’t it?”

This is not the first time Corker has reportedly said something to upset the conservative wing of the Republican Party.

Corker was quoted last week expressing concern about the path of the Republican Party. He also reportedly wouldn’t say whether he prefers voters elect a Democrat over Trump in 2020.

Writing for The Washington Post, Phillip Wegmann said Corker is a country club Republican. Wegmann also said Corker longs for “what the Republican Party used to be.”

“And it’s worth asking what it was before President Trump and before the Tea Party,” Wegmann wrote.

Corker has also referred to the Trump administration as a “banana republic” more than once.

    How many more hours until his forced retirement kicks in? Liddle Bobby needs to lose his soapbox

  2. Silence Dogood

    Is Corker being elected twice to the Senate as a Republican the result of a lazy and ineffective Republican Party in Tennessee? And for all Corkers lack of good sense, he votes with Conservatives more often than Lamar Alexander. What is wrong in Tennessee? Have we entrusted our Conservative values to faithless state Republican party members?

  3. Silence Dogood

    You were fired not retired, Bob. The worst that Tennessee had to offer this country is profiled in the morals of Al Gore, Bob Corker, and now, sadly, Lamar Alexander. Gore and Corker are simply crooks. Lamar has been in politics too long and he is too old. Senility has set in and that is a sad way to end your political career.Lamar ends up fired, too.

  4. Jose Reva

    Disgusting. Please call his office and let him know.

  5. juspassinthru

    WEBSTERS Dictionary: “irrational”, lacking reason or good sense. “brat”, an ill-mannered annoying child. Perfect descriptions of Corker.

  6. John Bumpus

    I don’t know about you, but I am so embarrassed by Corker and the fact that he is one of my representatives in the U.S. Senate. In some ways, Corker is like Bill Clinton. He won’t ‘shut up’ and he won’t get off of the public stage!

  7. Josh Read

    On significant issues of public importance Bob Corker has proved himself to be an arrogant elitist who has betrayed the conservative principles of the Republican Party and interests of the American people. If TN didn’t provide the platform that it does to buy elected offices like it does he wouldn’t even be in consideration for any political leadership.

  8. Traditional Thinker

    Corker is nothing more than a liberal squirt who was booed off the stage at Trump rally in his own state. He’s a joke to the conservative base, a democrat dressed in Republican clothing. He has no backbone, just an agenda to destroy freedom. Corker, shut your pie hole little man and disapear. Your words or lies are of no use for Tennessee. Your a traitor to this state and your representation is disastrous.

  9. Robert Baggett

    Maybe ole Bob will be the Democrat that runs for Lamar Alexanders seat. He has of course always really been a Democrat

    Nothing quite like a politician telling you that having an opinion of your own equals tyranny. Obviously not much he won’t say while auditioning for CNN.
