Corker tells CNN how he really, really feels about Trump

Published

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee stopped short of calling President Donald J. Trump a liar in his unvarnished criticisms of the leader of his party Monday while speaking with CNN reporter Manu Raju.

“The president has great difficulty with the truth,” said Sen. Robert P. Corker Jr. (R.-Tenn.), who was the mayor of Chattanooga before his 2006 election to the Senate.

Corker was miffed by the Tweets the president made in his most recent Twitter spat with Trump.

“Nothing he said in his Tweets today were truthful,” the senator said.

Then Corker alluded to his characterization of the White House as an adult day care center: “I would hope the staff over there would figure out ways to control him when they know everything he said today was absolutely untrue.

Corker said he was raised not to call another people a “liar,” so he resisted Raju’s pressing him to say the word.

California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!

That’s a new one!

A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!

Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.

Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”

Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.

An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.

Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.

There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
