Never-Trump GOP Senator just announced this move to stop Trump

MSNBC’s favorite Republican Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced he’s quitting after this term.

Instead of finishing out his term with grace, the never-Trumper is doing everything in his power to block Trump from implementing his Make America Great Again policies.

And the “reason” Senator Flake gave for his latest hissy fit is outrageous.

Senator Flake is blocking President Trump’s judicial nominees for no apparent reason.

Roll Call reports:

Arizona Republican Jeff Flake halted an appeals court nominee last week and he’s not publicly saying why, a behind-the-scenes move that takes aim at one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s top priorities this year.

The Senate Judiciary Committee scuttled a planned vote June 14 on the nomination of Britt Grant, a pick from Georgia for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Flake’s hold throws a wrench in what has been the Senate GOP’s smoothly operating judicial confirmation machine.

“Oh, it’s just something I’m working out,” Flake said Tuesday, without offering more details. The typically media-friendly senator did say his reason didn’t have anything to do with Grant herself.

The move has not gone over well with Sen. Johnny Isakson, who said he confronted Flake but doesn’t know the reason for the hold. “It’s an indiscriminate, irresponsible use of a privilege of the Senate,” the Georgia Republican said.

After Trump’s election, Senator Flake made rounds on the liberal media circuit because they love nothing more than to pump up a Republican bashing President Trump.


There was even speculation that Flake could challenge Trump in 2020.

But now his anti-Trump hissy fit has gotten petty and it’s hurting the country.

After several days of blocking nominees without saying why, Flake claimed he was doing so because he was upset about President Trump’s trade policies.

But everyone knows the real reason Flake is blocking these nominees is to get back at Trump for effectively ending his political career.

Flake staked out his never-Trump territory, but refused to admit he was wrong when Trump took office and began enacting policies that have driven unemployment to record lows.

    Americans hate the abuse of people or policies that squander all legitimate reasons for their existence. Such is the case for Flake the “flake,” who is the worst Senator ever elected from any state. I can rationalize why Arizonans have been patient in the case of John McCain, as much as I wish he would realize that his health condition deters him from rationality. Perhaps there is an unknown substance in the environment of Arizona, because the worst U.S. Senator I’ve ever witnessed also comes from an Arizona address.
    He has carried his obsessive loathing for President Trump to extremes, he should not have one Republican agreeing with his fantasy that he’s a better man for America than President Trump! Flake’s behavior has hardly been judged, because his senatorial days are full of his attempts to undermine President Trump and Republican causes. He is not doing any of us a favor by leaving the Senate at end of his elected term. If he has even a shred of decency, he should have quit immediately when he made fools of his constituency in AZ, but he’s so selfishly self-centered that he would undermine our country to satisfy his destructive ego.

    Flake is a flake! He became McCain’s little boy when he entered the Senate and committed treason to all of us who voted for him! He has suddenly lost his conservative attitude and it’s not because of Trump! He was bucking the party, long before Trump announced his intention to run! What he doesn’t seem to understand is that he committed treason to all of us who voted for him. I doubt very much he could even run for dog catcher in Arizona, and even the left likely wouldn’t trust him either

    ANY SENATOR, OR REPRESENTATIVE THAT IS THIS BAD SHOULD BE RECALLED AND ALL BENEFITS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM, FLAKE AND MAXINE ARE 2 AND I CAN NAME ONE OR 2 MORE. I SUGGEST THAT A LAW IS PASSED THAT ONCE ELECTED, THEY HAVE TO STAY IN WASHINGTON AND WORK 5 DAYS A WEEK, BE CHECKED FOR CHEMICAL USE EVERY SO OFTEN JUST LIKE THE NORMAL EMPLOYEE AND IF FOUND USING, BE TREATED THE SAME AND REGARDLESS HOW LOW THEY ARE THERE IF THEY FALL, TAKE ALL BENEFITS.
