Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) slammed the “tyranny” of talk radio show hosts for the impending government shutdown.
“We have two talk radio hosts who influenced the President,” he added. “That’s tyranny, isn’t it?”
The government could shutdown at the end of the day Friday over Trump’s insistence that Congress appropriate $5 billion for a border wall. He’s previously said multiple times that he would be “proud” to shut down the government over wall funding.
It’s unclear wh0 exactly Corker meant to single out: Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter both raged at Trump on Wednesday for initially appearing to back away from his demand for border wall funding, but so did plenty of other far-right Republicans.
