Ingraham: Bob Corker Is Not for the Trump Agenda & Probably Never Was
Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told the Times that the president was treating his office like a "reality show,” and his reckless threats toward other countries could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”
“The Failing @nytimes set Liddle’ Bob Corker up by recording his conversation. Was made to sound a fool and that’s what I am dealing with!” Trump tweeted in response Tuesday.

Some have speculated that inter-party feuds like this could hurt Trump's ability to get legislation passed, but Laura Ingraham says Corker was never for the Trump agenda in the first place.
"We kind of know where Bob Corker stands now. Bob Corker's not for the Trump agenda, probably never was," Ingraham said on "Fox & Friends."
She said it's time for Republican lawmakers to get on board with that agenda or risk losing their seats in 2018.
"When you're in Washington for decades and your whole life is shuttling between think tank and fundraiser and lobbyist event, you lose touch with the people," Ingraham said. "Sometimes you lose touch [with] from where you came. And I think it's time for a lot of these people just to move on."
She said that Trump has tried to work with the Republican establishment in good faith, including giving them a wide berth to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and he's repeatedly been let down.
