Does This Constitute Evidence?

Like heating a frog in water, not noticing he's cooking---unless it's pointed out to him by jumping out

Does Bob Corker's statements show that a level of democracy has been removed?
Because elected officials are not voting to represent their constituents, but rather choosing to vote as not to upset Trump
Thought the Senate was a branch of the gov't?

    I thought Canada was a different country. Deal with that progressive woke man-child you elected prime Minister first, and then I'll listen.

    My wife: who is that?
    Me: Its the Prime Minister of Canada
    Wife: wow. . . (eyes lingering a bit too long) he looks so. . . young.
    me: yeah.

    Ole Liddle Bob. Don't think for one sec he wouldn't be slobbing on the knob if he could. He got the stink eye from Trump and he's been crying ever since. So long Bob, thanks for the Iran deal. Hope the door hits you in face on your way out...

    We are a different country
    But our economies are so integrated that what happens there does affect us directly---and direct illegal tariff action is even more
    So Corker tries to reign in Trump's powers and it's head for the exits?
    Is it not in your Constitution to balance that power between branches of gov't

    Trudeau---currently has rock star numbers here due to the attacks
    If you wish I'll try and get a signed photo of Justin for your wife...just sayin

    PS...Trump today declared yet another biggest threat to America---The Media
    Sleep well

    Of course he does. That's what happens when a bully goes after one of your own. Its human nature to rally.

    I don't know that Corker's rant qualifies as trying to "reign Trump in." The Senate has constitutional duties, none of which include ranting and raving saying "oh my gosh, he's so bad," and then not doing anything about it.
