The media turned on Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and suddenly he feels badly about how the press treats President Donald Trump.
Corker has long criticized the president for his contentious relationship with the national news media. But after the press attacked him, claiming he changed his vote on the tax bill because of a provision that would benefit him personally, the lawmaker said he has “newfound empathy” for Trump.
“I told him that I’d had a healthy respect for the media. I deal with them all the time and, you know, to attack the media has not been something I’ve done. But I had a newfound empathy for him,” Corker said on Fox and Friends, adding that the media was spreading a totally debunked story about him.
