Just right now live on CNN Corker saying both that he has read every line of the bill and then that he has no idea what the Corker kickback is about.

Wolf Blitzer is letting him go on and on about how good the bill is and asking almost no follow-up questions when korkers statements are contradictory.

Did anyone really believe him when he said he didn't know what it was about? He and Hatch have been lying their asses off. They bought his vote.

The saddest part is that the only way a corporate tax cut could possibly work is by cutting loopholes that allow individuals to have their income taxed at a corporate rate or as a pass through entity. And when I say "work," I mean without further ballooning the debt and failing to do what they say the cut will do.

But as the GOP really never had any interest in reducing the debt, we get this travesty.

Actually Blitzer was pretty tough on Corker, asking him if he still believed that Trump was an idiot, based on Corkers last comments about Trump, that were video taped. Corker refused to answer, hemming and hawing that Blitzer was enjoying putting the screws to him. But let's face it, when you speak publicly, and you ae a U.S. Senator, you have to understand that your words may come back to haunt you, or at minimum, be questioned.

When Blitzer pointed out that the bill had not changed since he placed his 'No' vote to the time he placed his 'Yes' vote (except for the provision that might benefit him), then asked him why he changed his vote, Corker went on a broad, evasive tirade about how he thought the plan was now suddenly going to be good for America. But essentially, did not answer the question.

Good for Wolf. He displayed good journalistic technique, asking the tough question but giving the Senator a chance to respond, which, in my opinion, he failed to do miserably.

No way to take it, than that he was 'bought off' in some manner, shape, or form.

Yes, in my mind he could have gone out on a high note, sticking to his past principles that 'deficits are bad'. The bill still would have passed, and he would save some face. Now he looks just like another crooked politician that caved on his principles, and voted the party line like the good soldier.

Another thing to remember the next time he tries to make everyone believe he's against what Trump stands for. Mr wanna-be rebel still has all the integrity as a lame duck as he did before his 'heroic' retirement.

The best thing is Corker is starting to sound like "his nemesis" the Donald.

Fake news! Malicious! Corker's the real victim here!

Totally agree. He let that dumbfuck putter on without ever saying anything other than he was victimized by the media (somehow? and didn't feel like clarifying the issue).

No, Corker is a ginormous piece of shit, and if you were wooed by his anti-Trump pillow talk, you just got fucked.
