(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Another Twitter exchange between President Trump & Senator Bob Corker introduced. [With CNN's Manu Raju, CORKER - comments on everything Trump said today being untrue.] Trump's tweet alleging Corker helped President Obama pass the Iran deal & that Corker dropped out of the Senate race when Trump refused to endorse him introduced. [CORKER - says he is factually incorrect.] [Today, Speaker of the House Paul RYAN - says forget about Twitter.] The rebuke of the president from Senator Jeff Flake introduced. [On Senate floor, FLAKE - speaks against the personal attack: reckless & undignified behavior.] The response from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders introduced. [SANDERS - says history will look on the president favorably: examples cited.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jeff Zeleny) This extraordinary denunciation of the president from a Republican while Corker will sit over the Foreign Relations Committee for 14 months, the question of who will replace Flake, how Trump's meeting with Senate Republicans was overshadowed by speaking out against the administration discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's "New York Times" Maggie Haberman, CNN's David Gergen & Mike Rogers about the politics of Trump & Flake & Corker. [HABERMAN, GERGEN, ROGERS - offer views on two senators speaking out & whether others may follow, how Flake has long been against Trump, the significance of these day with two Republicans breaking from the president: his coalition in getting things past is a problem, how this is "a day like no other," how this is indicative in what is happening in politics: personal & mean, how Flake not running is a victory for Trump, if not Republican leaders, how Flake, Corker & Senator John McCain are worried about the country & the legacy, how this day was unusual with a tweet exchange & Corker's interview: beyond a petty dispute.]
