Hustling for work at uber-liberal CNN, likely won’t pay off as the network finds Trump bashing isn’t profitable, laying off “dozens” of employees
Jeff Flake, whose 18% approval rating was so low he decided against a Senate reelection bid rather than risk the embarrassment of that reality hitting him smack in his already crooked nose, is now homing his advice skills. And the intended beneficiary of that wisdom? None other than President Donald Trump — who beat back 16 other Republican primary candidates nationally. Trump won Arizona’s GOP primary by more than 20 percentage points before carrying the state in the general election. and took the Electoral College vote by 306 to Hillary Clinton’s 232.
Here is Flake on ‘Meet the Press,‘ chatting amiably Sunday with NBC’s Chuck Todd, while attacking President Trump. Flake, who repeatedly engages in hammering the President of the United States, dishonestly worries about the problem caused by the degradation of the political culture, calling it a “real concern.”
During the interview, Flake repeatedly refers to a litany of his own previous speeches while pitching his anti-Trump agenda.
CHUCK TODD: Let me ask you on the treasonous comment. Do you think we need to get a sense of humor or does the president need to watch his words?
JEFF FLAKE: No, I think the president needs to stop calling Democrats or Republicans or others who, who don’t stand or applaud at every line that he has, that they’re “un-American.” He also used that term,”treasonous.” Practiced liar Flake hypocritically told Todd, “Words matter.” When he talks about fake news, for example, the man who accompanied Barack Obama to repressive Communist Cuba, says, “ I gave another speech where I talked about how that gives aid and comfort to authoritarians around the world who are now labeling their opposition or dismissing real dissent as fake news. So those things matter. So I don’t think that it’s a joking matter to say that somebody is treasonous and he (Pres. Trump) ought to stop it.”
CHUCK TODD: You’re one of the few Republicans that spoke up on that issue. Not many others did. And it seems like fewer and fewer are comfortable criticizing the president when he does some of these sort of unusual attacks on his opponents. Why is that?
JEFF FLAKE: Well, I think the real problem, as I’ve tried to mention, is that we are seeing now as normal, things that we shouldn’t see as normal. And this degradation of the political culture is a real concern, where we’re no longer outraged when we ought to be. And that’s a problem. So I do think that more of us ought to stand up and say, “Hey, this is beyond the bounds of where politics ought to be.” And the longer we go without doing that, you know, the further politics slides into areas that just are unhealthy.
Jeff Flake is a stellar example of exactly what he describes as concerning. That’s why he’s hustling for another job. CNN, which made Trump bashing its bread and butter issue, is now laying off dozens of employees. This Vanity Fair report provides the details of the failed “Trump Bump.” The American people who elected President Trump, aren’t buying the liberal pap whether it originates from Jeff the Flake or CNN.
