Fox & Friends Dings Sen. Bob Corker’s Criticism of Trump as ‘Self Serving’ and ‘Disrespectful’

Fox & Friends spent some time Monday morning to chastise Sen. Bob Corker for taking his criticism of President Donald Trump public.

The feud between the two Republicans started Sunday morning, when the president launched into a Twitter assault on the Tennessee senator claiming he had “begged” Trump for an endorsement, and decided not to seek re-election in 2018 when Trump declined.

Corker responded a few hours later with one tweet, stating: “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

And then, in a stunningly candid interview with the New York Times, the senator vented about his concerns that Trump is treating the presidency like a “reality show,” and that his rhetoric could set the U.S. on the “path to World War III.”

Well, that public rebuke of the president did not sit well with the hosts of Fox & Friends (though they apparently had no problem with Trump’s initial attack on Corker).

“Whatever Bob Corker thought, he could have done it personally and privately,” Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade said, without a hint of irony. “The president takes his calls, they go golfing together.”

“So to go public with these critiques are just — I think it’s self-serving,” he said.

“Disrespectful,” Ainsley Earhardt added.
