Blue-Check Twitter Ridicules Trump’s ‘Liddle’ Bob Corker Dig: ‘We Are All in 6th Grade’
President Trump is still using insulting nicknames for his political opposition, though not everyone finds this particularly impressive.
Trump sent out a tweet today where he mocked “Liddle” Bob Corker and claimed that the senator was “set up” in a New York Times interview. This is the latest phase of Trump’s feud with Corker, which comes after the outgoing senator questioned the president’s stability and expressed concern that America is heading for disaster.
After Trump’s tweet went out, a lot of online observers chimed in to slam his juvenile behavior, point out the errors of his claim, and remind the president that there are much bigger things to talk about.
Someone was made to sound like a fool, but it wasn’t Bob Corker. https://t.co/fvV14TIVnK

The Republican president of the United States is making fun of the height of a Republican Senator.
So, yes, we are all in 6th grade.

There are bigger issues both in this tweet and beyond, of course, but that misused apostrophe really bothers me. https://t.co/QC4VWC1u6d

Also, he’s recycling Marco Rubio’s insult nickname. The demands of the office are starting to show https://t.co/DyzroknKXK

You already used “Liddle” for Marco Rubio, are you out of childish insults?
