Generally, one would expect there to be ups and downs in the relationship between the presidency and Congress. But with Trump, it's all linear. He has shown that he hasn't been able to "mount a comeback" using the words of The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur, who said so when he was predicting President Trump's possible resignation. In other words, President Trump has not left any room for compromise and when he feels that someone's a problem, he attacks them. On his growing list of Republicans he's attacking, the president went after Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) on Friday over the senator's criticism of him over a week ago.

Still criticized over Charlottesville

Sen. Corker's criticism was over the president's comments on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia where a counter-protester and two police officers were killed. The nation demanded that their president take a stand against the hate groups that incited the violence, before they took notice of his attack against the counter-protesters as being just as violent as the Nazi hate groups. The comment the senator made to a reporter last week was that the president did not show that he has the ability to lead.

In more than one way, Sen. Corker contradicted himself with his own statement to say that they need the president to be successful, whether the president is Republican or Democrat.

This is because Corker was responsible for much of the obstruction that prevented Obama from being successful, or at the very least, slowed down the process. As to the president's response, he immediately took to Twitter to troll Sen. Corker to say that the state of Tennessee was not happy with the senator, despite the fact that he's won 65 percent of the vote.

But, again, this adds to the growing list of politicians that the president has gone after, thus far, Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and even the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell -- who he reportedly got into a profane-laden shouting match with over the phone in early August -- are already on that list.

Not to mention using protected language to convey obstruction of justice over the Russia investigation.

While Congress prepares to make their return back to Washington from their August recess, it's hard to see lawmakers doing anything other than drawing their battle lines. The view is that McConnell might be close to having enough of the president's attacks with the suggestion that they will move forward without Trump, which leads to further uncertainty for the legislative process for the rest of the year.
