There may be more to Jeff Flake’s recent uptick in media appearances than meets the eye.
The Arizona senator who has been one of the most sought-after interviews for red meat for the hate brigades and his constant undermining of a president from his own political party may have made him into a pariah with conservatives and less popular than colorectal cancer with his constituents but Flake is a star in waiting when it comes to the cable media which can never have too deep of a bench when it comes to haters of Donald Trump.
With his Senate career having been blown up due to his inability to be a team player, the pride of Snowflake, AZ (no kidding) is going to be a hot commodity once his ability to sabotage Trump’s policies comes to an end and he can go pro for a much better salary than what he pulls down in Congress.
According to reports, Flake skipped votes in the Senate on Monday and instead visited with execs at both CNN and MSNBC.
Jeff Flake was absent for a series of senate votes on Monday. Instead, he was in New York meeting privately with the heads of MSNBC and (on Tuesday) CNN.https://t.co/BioybgLi2W

Via the far-left Daily Beast, “Jeff Flake Shopping Around for a Possible Post-Senate Cable News Gig”:
When Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) leaves his current job at the beginning of 2019, he could already have a new one lined up: cable-news pundit.
Over the past several days, the Arizona Republican—who is not seeking re-election amid his public fights with President Donald Trump—has met with the the heads of at least two major cable-news networks.
On Monday, he met with MSNBC president Phil Griffin; and on Tuesday, he met with rival network CNN’s chief Jeff Zucker. Flake was absent Monday for a series of Senate votes that took place around 5:30 p.m. Neither network responded to requests for comment on those meetings.
When asked by The Daily Beast whether he is in talks for a cable-news gig, Flake declined to confirm or deny that the meetings took place.
Look for this whining loser to saturate the media more than Michael Avenatti did as he hones his on-camera skills for when he joins the gang over at MSNBC. Who knows, Chris Matthews is so triggered that he may have an aneurysm at any given moment clearing a slot for the new “Numbnuts” with Jeff Flake.
