President Trump’s reported demeaning comments against Attorney General Jeff Sessions received a swift reaction from Senate Republicans. 

When asked about the President's recent comments, Sen. Bob Corker compared them to that of a teenager.  

“Whining's pretty unbecoming of a 13-year-old but very unbecoming of a 71 or 72-year-old president. And look if he's got a problem with Sessions, just fire him. I know he's afraid to do that before the midterms. But you know whining between now and then probably not particularly productive,” Corker said. 

The Tennessee Republican also pushed back at the President's Monday Tweet, indicating Sessions should have prevented two Republican congressmen from being indicted on federal charges to save their seats in the midterms.
