When it comes to Iran, Trump is the real adult in the room

Sen. Bob Corker seemed to speak for many in Washington — including a lot of Republicans — when he unloaded on President Trump in an interview with The New York Times, in which he described the president as “reckless” and his White House as a “reality show.”
Earlier, Corker, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, designated Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as the men who “separate our country from chaos,” the implication being without these “adults,” hindering him, Trump would set the nation “on a path to World War III.”
Why is it every time I see Bob Corker standing next to
someone, I start waiting for him to start singing, 
'Follow the Yellow Brick Road'?
But there’s one problem with Corker’s narrative. It so happens that on a key issue where Corker and the adults are supposedly stopping Trump from driving the country into a ditch — his effort to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal — he’s right and they’re wrong.
It’s easy to understand why the GOP establishment is exasperated with him. Trump generally doesn’t know what he’s talking about and, even when he’s acting responsibly, he does so in a manner that leaves everyone with a bad taste in their mouths. His willingness to say anything — even things that are obviously not true — about those who cross him may delight his base but it comes with a cost.
