Amnesty supporter Jeff McFlake despises Trump’s wall
Think again if you thought Arizona’s junior Sen. Jeff the Flake was just coyly equivocating when he was quoted as saying, “It’s uncomfortable not having endorsed the Republican nominee, I have to say. But I can’t at this point. I hope to be able to support the nominee. I certainly can’t right now.”
Know this. Flake was not wishing aloud for what he considers a more acceptable version of Republican nominee Donald Trump to emerge. The Flake was providing a preview of his latest scheme to throw the Republican convention into chaos and the Republican Party onto the trash heap of American politics, suffering a similar fate to that of the Whig Party.
The Political Insider site refers to Jeff Flake as “a prominent U.S. Senator.” They obviously are not paying attention to these polls, intra-party meeting and reports:
AZ Channel 3 reported that within three months of taking office Jeff Flake was the most unpopular senator in the nation.
The Daily Caller notes that both Flake and McCain — colluding with the most liberal of Democrats to pass an amnesty bill — have managed to sink their poll ratings to record lows and were in a race for the least popular senator prize with Flake even lower than the reviled McCain.
Even the left-wing Arizona Republic newspaper, inextricably bonded to promoting amnesty for illegals, nearly went apoplectic when Jeff Flake decided to pull a McCain and veered to the right pre-election. The crew needn’t have gotten so outraged. It was only a momentary hiccup to be used to pull him to a slim 3% victory in a race he was in the throes of losing.
At the State GOP meeting, both Flake and McCain were slipped in the back door raising the fury of the elected delegates, who were none too happy with the deception orchestrated by the AZ GOP state chairman Robert Graham a longtime McCain ally. Both Flake and McCain were booed and many delegates walked out of the packed auditorium or turned their backs to the stage.
If these are the trappings of “a prominent U.S. Senator,” then Jeff the Flake might be in the running. Otherwise, not a chance.
