A senior Republican senator publicly expressed on Sunday what party leaders mostly have whispered, calling the White House “an adult day-care center” in a caustic reply to President Trump’s weekend of tweets and off-the-cuff comments attacking the senator and a range of other targets.
The extraordinary Twitter exchange between the president and Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee captured the degree of disruption that Trump has brought to the Republican Party he now heads. And it put his agenda perhaps further at risk in a Senate where Republicans have just a two-vote margin of control, as they gird to battle over signature issues like tax reform.
The episode also served to advance the narrative of a White House in disarray — the very subject that Corker earlier in the week had alluded to, seemingly setting off the president — even as administration officials sought anew to tamp down that notion.
Trump took the first shot, in a series of tweets before he left the White House for his golf club in Virginia.
