Irrelevant Jeff Flake, is still trying to breathe life into his dead political career. Staring down 18 percent approval ratings, he couldn’t risk the embarrassing kick to the curb Arizona voters were certain to hand him. In response, he decided to withdraw from a second senate campaign.
Flake has been wiling away his dwindling time on the D.C. stage deriding Donald Trump, the Republican President of the United States — who both Flake and McCain refused to vote for. Libertarian Flake has used the GOP party apparatus and dedicated activists to his advantage, cloaking himself as a Republican during campaign season. For his transgressions, he was even taken to the woodshed by RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel. AZ GOP leadership remained mute.
Now, as a man without a constituency, Flake hammers President Trump at every opportunity — from speechifying in the senate chamber to making appearances on left-wing media outlets. He even wrote an anti-Trump pamphlet, he deemed a book, with a title stolen directly from Barry Goldwater’s iconic 1960 book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” The obtuse Flake, born two years after publication, probably thought no one would notice the heist.
Now Flake has moved on to the U.S. Constitution, written even longer ago. He has determined that President Trump is exceeding his authority in imposing economic trade tariffs, and needs to be reigned in.
Learning from his Republicrat mentor, John McCain, Flake is cobbling together a “bi-partisan” effort to legislatively hogtie the president. It’s what you do when your ego exceeds the size of your brain and your political days are numbered.
Flake, a former registered foreign agent lobbying for an African uranium mining company with ties to Iran, took to accommodating CNN to declare his intentions, while repeating his foolish mantra that in today’s political environment a Republican like him can’t win. He lost his voter base for exactly the opposite reason. His left-of-center unwavering support of amnesty for illegal invaders is not a winning issue, nor is incessantly insulting the president, something he never did to his basketball playing and traveling buddy Obama, whom Flake accompanied to Kenya and Cuba.
President Trump’s approval ratings are at an all time high, the economy is enjoying unparalleled growth, unemployment is at record lows and President Trump is fulfilling the promises he made to the American people.
In this pro-Trump climate, Flake, who was unable to hold on to his home state voters, now boasts he wants to challenge President Trump in 2020. Our response? Run, Jeff, Run!
