“Bipartisanship” convenient ruse as Sens. Jeff Flake, Martin Heinrich ask Discovery to feature them in reality show
Initially, it appeared to be an absurdity too foolish to consider authentic, but when narcissistic Jeff Flake is involved, the absurd becomes commonplace, so it begged a second look.
In the midst of a massive illegal invasion of our homeland, raging global turmoil, gruesome beheadings of American journalists by depraved radical Islamic terrorists who are also issuing threats against major cities in the United States, it would appear that U.S. Senators would have more to do than head to a deserted island to preen before cameras. It’s been widely reported that our porous southern border is a major portal for those intending harm to this country. Yet Republicrat Flake and leftist Martin Heinrich, both border state senators, have been outspoken amnesty supporters who bear responsibility for the sieve-like border. Flake momentarily veers right when campaigning, but swings back to open-border mode immediately after election day.
Odd that these senators conveniently take a self-promoting hike, when the going they aid and abet, gets tough.
Arizonans have previously witnessed these preening antics with Jeff Flake. The perennially smirking guy with a propensity for bleaching his locks and sending shirtless pics of himself, is no stranger to deserted islands. He’s made a sideline of chronicling his egotistical high jinx.
Senators Flake and Heinrich released this bizarre statement regarding their self-serving venture: “Both of us know just how frustrated people are with Washington right now. We can both attest that no one is more frustrated than those of us trying to get things done in this environment. We recognize how difficult it can be to cut through the partisanship. So we decided to do something completely out of the ordinary and frankly a little extreme to show the world and our colleagues that even if you have serious differences, if you want to survive you have to work together.”
According to Entertainment Weekly’s promo of the show, “Rival Survival,” the duo “were dropped on the island of Eru, Marshall Islands. Using only limited resources and their wits, the pair must work together in a harsh environment as they attempt to spear fish, build shelter and find enough water to survive for one week.”
Clever contrivance, but isn’t there real work to be done? American citizens deserve more for that $174,000 base salary (not including benefits, allowances and perks) we’re paying you. Try talking to us instead of catching crabs.
