Just as Pinocchio’s nose grew longer as he told ever more preposterous lies, former Sen. Jeff Flake’s has grown further leftward as he has curried the favor with the anti-Trump media. Breitbart carries the report.
For a man who was unable to run for reelection after a single senate term due to bottom-dragging 18 percent approval ratings in his home state, it’s absurd, though typically Flakey, that he would announce that he’s not going to mount a 2020 challenge to President Trump. Even his kinfolk in his rural Arizona birthplace of Snowflake — named in part for his great-great-grandfather, are no fans of Flake’s vile rhetoric. Most support the president.
Flake is taking his rabid vitriol on the road as a new hire of the left-wing CBS News network. There’s nothing quite as compelling as a defector, ready to turn on the party under whose banner he ran and the Republican President of the United States for the proverbial few pieces of silver.
While trying to give himself cover, he groused that the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee “are so melded” that they are “trying to do everything they can to squelch any opposition.”
Flake, who has bragged he still stays in touch with Barack Obama, says he prefers BO’s tone to President Trump’s. He’s not referring to volume; it’s the liberal content that grabs the Flake.
Flake’s ego outweighs his conscience to the point he’s back to hitting the bottle —- of peroxide, as he returns to tinting his locks golden again, while moving to get camera ready.
His time-off time could have been better spent with a good surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. An added benefit beyond the obvious? Flake would get more oxygen to his brain, something he could definitely use.
