GOP Senator Repeatedly Dodges Question of Whether Trump Is ‘Fit to Be President’

mika corkerSenator Bob Corker, who said just days ago he’s encouraged by a growing “maturity” in Donald Trump, avoided saying three separate times of Morning Joe today whether Trump is fit to be president.

Corker was somewhat critical of Trump’s racially-charged attacks on the judge in the Trump University case, and so Mika Brzezinski asked, “If he does not pivot from this, is he fit to be president?”

Corker hesitated and said there are “armies of people” who could advise Trump on policy, especially when he “hasn’t fully formed views on numbers of topics.”

Brzezinski asked again and Corker said, “It’s a very important time for him.”

Corker implored his party’s nominee to listen to reason and Brzezinski tried two more times to get him to answer.

Corker refused to “answer questions of conjecture” and invited her to re-ask him at a later date.
