Donald Trump, If You Care About America Don’t Give This Clown A Job

Ever since the wee hours of November 9, Tennessee Senator Bob Corker has been fluffing himself as the next secretary of state. Sometimes he’s claimed he’s a contender, at other times that he’s “in the mix” (wtf, right?), a couple of times he’s said he wasn’t interested. But he’s there with that “lean and hungry look” that some dead white guy wrote about back before the internet. Bob Corker lusts after that office like Bill Clinton lusts after Jeffrey Epstein’s harem and Chris Christie lusts after a Krispy Kreme.
Corker, however, seems to know that his shameful dereliction of duty in regards to his support of giving Iran nuclear weapons is a stumbling block. To try to remedy this he has dispatched a couple of staffers to try to create a false narrative of what actually happened with the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (INARA).
Rarely will you read such a monumental exercise in blatant dishonesty. National Review’s Andy McCarthy fisks it down to its bones but a couple of overarching points need to be made. Quoting McCarthy:
First, Iran has decided that it will possess nuclear weapons. The choice the West (and I use that term loosely because Russia and China were involved in the deal) had to make was to resist Iran’s progress, acquiesce to its progress, or aid its progress. To the everlasting shame of everyone involved the latter option was chosen and the blood of tens of thousands will eventually be on their hands. The choice Bob Corker had was even more stark. He could resist a truly bad deal and make it very, very difficult for Obama to proceed with his preferred option. Or he could be Obama’s b***h. For reasons known only to Corker, though being a moral cripple has to rank up near the top of them, Corker elected to help Obama push this through the Senate and gave cover for weak-kneed GOP and Democrat senators who were afraid to oppose Obama but who wanted to claim they did.
