Like a festering wart on your ass that you finally thought that you were rid of, RINO Jeff Flake has once again returned with a vengeance.
The feckless sore loser who staked his political career on opposition to President Trump only to see his popularity ratings in his home state of Arizona plummet to a level normally reserved for child molesters and incurable foot fungus slinked out of the Senate in January to what in a normal world would have been a life of shame and exile.
But as is evident with the neocons who were cheerleaders of biggest clusterfucks of George W. Bush’s foreign policy like Bill Kristol and others and who now are embraced by the same liberals who wanted Bush’s head on a stick, so it is with Flake.
Not that it should come as any shock but the pride of Snowflake, AZ (no kidding) is getting attention for his early support of the craziest race-baiting socialist that the Democrats can find as long as it means that Trump will be defeated next year.
Jeff Flake Says it Would Be Better if a Socialist Won in 2020 than Trump

Via The Hill, “Flake: Better for a Dem to win in 2020 than Trump”:
Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that he would rather see a Democrat win in 2020 than have President Trump elected to a second term.
Flake made his comments at a debate in New York hosted by the nonprofit Intelligence Squared. Flake and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens argued that the GOP should not renominate Trump, while Liz Peek and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach backed the president.
Moderator John Donvan asked Flake if he would rather see Trump lose if he is the party’s standard-bearer in 2020.
“Are you willing to lose a cycle for the Republican Party because of the principles that you’re arguing?” Donvan asked.
“Oh yes, yes,” Flake responded, citing Trump’s policies on issues such as immigration. Flake said that while those policies were supported by the president’s base, they hurt the Republican Party over the long run.
“It can galvanize people for a while, maybe for a cycle or two. But in the end, it turns people off. It turns off minorities. It turns off women,” said Flake, noting that anti-immigration policies such as those pushed by former Gov. Pete Wilson (R-Calif.) hurt the GOP in The Golden State.
Flake was asked what the GOP should do if Trump remains the nominee.
“You sacrifice a generation, and you think, ‘Man, we might get some policy goals in the next year or two,'” Flake said. But he hoped the party took a longer view.
So there you have it. Like his spiteful fellow Arizonan John McCain (who is now worm food) it’s more important to Flake to stick it to Trump who he is jealous of even if the result is a communist takeover of America.
