IMAGINE THAT, AN ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN HAS THE LIBERAL MSM TURN ON THEM AND NOW THEY CAN EMPATHIZE WITH TRUMP?
As reported at The Hill, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) stated that he had a “newfound empathy” for President Donald Trump after the MSM that had been so kind to him in the past, turned on him as he received his own brand of fake new coverage. The fake news charge was in reference to the so-called “Corker kickback” that was alleged by the liberal MSM and the LEFT. Of course it was false and categorically denied by Sen. Corker. But what else would you expect the LEFT to do but lie? However, it is better late than never that Corker, who has feuded with Trump over the past year, that Corker now knows what it feels like to walk for one second in the shoes of President Donald Trump. Maybe Republicans, especially RINO’s and establishment Republicans will now understand where the MSM’s allegiance really lay.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Thursday he has “newfound empathy” for President Trump after a report he benefited from a provision in the final GOP tax bill went viral.
“I told (Trump) that I’d had a healthy respect for the media and I deal with them all the time, and, you know, to attack the media has not been something I’ve done,” Corker said on Fox News.
“I’ve never ever in my life used the work ‘fake news’ until today. I actually understand what it is the president has been dealing with,” he continued.
Corker was responding to a story first reported by International Business Times and picked up by other outlets that a provision added to the tax bill during the reconciliation process would directly benefit those with real estate holdings, like Corker.
Corker said he was unaware of the provision, and said it was included in the House version of the bill then included in the final version submitted from a conference committee.
Corker said he spoke with Trump on Wednesday about his “newfound empathy” for the president, who has frequently singled out news outlets for their reporting and labeled them “fake news.”
“He just mentioned that he’d been dealing with this for over a year, and look, I’m sorry I’ve witnessed it firsthand, it is not good,” Corker said. “I know other people have witnessed the same. I have a newfound empathy for what he and others have been dealing with this in this regard.”
