If Jeff Flake Thinks Republicans Are Conservative He Needs Serious Help
One of the least popular Senators in the country thinks Americans might still need him to be the next President.
Sen. Jeff Flake had previously backed out of a re-election run this November after he was found to be as unpopular as Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. John McCain. But now, while it’s “not in [his] plans” to run for office again, Sen. Flake might throw his hat back in the ring in order to run for the White House.
In an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet The Press, Flake said:
“I do hope that somebody runs on the Republican side other than the president.”
Flake: Republicans are the TRUE conservatives!
Republicans haven’t been conservative in decades, and the last hurrah for conservatism in the party was around the time of the Tea Party protests.
Flake believes that a Republican should run against Trump for the party’s nomination for the 2020 run in order to remind Donald what “conservatism [really] is” and what the Republican Party used to stand for.
Meanwhile, everyone else wants Trump to run unopposed in the Republican primary for 2020 because he’s the greatest President in a long time, and while there’s still no border wall, his work on everything from Israel, tax reform, the Paris climate accord, to military pay raises to telling the United Nations to get in line has been wonderful.
Flake said that Trump had hit the bottom, but Trump has been pulling major power moves such as cancelling the Korean summit to remind Rocket Man who’s really in charge. That’s good leadership right there. Sen. Flake could never pull off a move like that, not without first going to Harvard, CNN and NBC to talk about feelings.
Last year, Jeff Flake visited with his pal Wolf Blitzer at CNN to explain his speech. After all, a joke is only funny when you have to explain it, and a speech is only good when you have to explain it. Flake said it’s a “constitutional prerogative” to stand up against Trump.
Flake: Pompous Blowhard
To describe himself at a fancy dinner in New Hampshire this March, Flake went for a fake Latin phrase to call himself an Americanus Nevertrumpus.
This isn’t the only time that Flake’s speechwriter should’ve been immediately taken out back and fired.
Last week, Flake gave a speech to the incoming Harvard Law class where he didn’t seem to notice that he accidentally referenced Guns-N-Roses:
“Not to be unpleasant, but I do bring news from our nation’s capital. First, the good news: Your national leadership is … not good. At all. Our president has been debased. By a figure who has a seemingly bottomless appetite for destruction and division.”
Congress is Alarmed, Says Senator
Flake believes that he and he fellow members of Congress have a “lot of alarm” over Trump’s continued existence. He has spoken to fellow members about the topic, and they appear to have agreed that the best thing to do is to flail their arms around, insult Trump at expensive dinners and go cry to liberal media who love hearing from angry Republicans.
Flake’s concern is something that matters only marginally to the rest of the country, who are concerned with the old saws of employment and keeping taxes down. If Trump and the White House terminates the probe into election shenanigans by Robert Mueller, things would be even more alarming. Flake didn’t have many details on why this would be so bad.
“[Trump is] obviously probing the edges [of that idea] as far as he can.”
And the proven claims that Trump’s campaign was infested with spies is simply a “diversion tactic.”
Sheriff Joe Arpaio May Replace Flake
In Arizona, with Flake being gently pushed out based on the horrible poll numbers, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in line to run for Flake’s nomination for the November race.
Mike Pence has acknowledged Arpaio’s run, and while Flake had nice things to say about Pence on a personal level, he said that Pence was only being nice to Arpaio because that’s just the way he is.
But Flake — who, again, has among the lowest approval rating in the country — said that the people in his Arizona district should be “wary” about Arpaio because the Sheriff has a murky relationship with the rule of law.
