Arizona Senator Jeff Flake opened his big mouth to suggest that Republicans rebel against President Trump and saw his poll numbers plummet in his home state of Arizona.
This is not a good sign for a man up for reelection next year and rumblings that Trump would be encouraging a primary challenge make Flake’s loose tongue look like a fatal error that could be a career killer.
Outside of California which boasts Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, there is no state with two worst U.S. Senators than Arizona. Fortunately for America, John McCain is on his way out due to brain cancer and Flake may beat him out the door.
So, what’s a man to do? Why not hit the Sunday morning shit shows like NBC’s
Press the Meat Meet the Press and try to get your anti-Trump message out to a national audience.

That’s exactly what Flake did when he sobbed into Chuck Toddy’s shoulder yesterday.

Via the Washington Examiner “Jeff Flake: Trump calling lawmakers ‘clowns and losers’ isn’t presidential”:
Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., on Sunday criticized President Trump for calling lawmakers “clowns and losers,” which he explained isn’t the right way to woo Congress to one’s side.
“Referring to our colleagues across the aisle as losers or clowns is not the direction to go,” Flake told NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.
“If we’re going to fix the big things … that has to be done with both Republicans and Democrats,” the senator added.
Flake, who has a new book out and is up for re-election in 2018, began ratcheting up criticism of the White House just before leaving for the month-long August recess.
That Flake would take exception with being called a clown or a loser shows that he is both.
All that was missing was Todd handing the crybaby a box of Kleenex as he whined about Trump, Barack Obama’s birth certificate, populism and the grim reality that RINO’s like himself are hated by conservatives. Flake’s comments on “birtherism” are really an attack on the tea party movement which was a rebellion against a corrupt government before it was co-opted.
He also defended Hillary Clinton, from the MTP transcript:
On that I think I did. But on other things as well, I mean, our party I wonder, you know, during rallies when the chants, “Lock her up,” you know, we shouldn’t be the party for jailing your political opponents. And anybody at that rally, anybody at those rallies, ought to stand up and say, “That’s inappropriate. We shouldn’t be doing that.”
And I wish we as a party and elected officials would do more of that, or when particularly ugly conspiracy theories go out or simply fake news. Stuff that is just demonstrably false. We ought to stand up and say, “Hey, that’s just not right.”
While Flake’s interview will endear him to the bipartisan sewer dwellers it only serves to show how out of touch that he is with a mainstream America that is sick and tired of career politicians selling them down the river.
Flake is pimping a new book as well just like every other anti-Trump clown.
