Never Trump senator just compared Trump to this dictator
Last year Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced he was quitting the senate because he couldn’t stand Trump.
Now he’s the darling of MSNBC and CNN who love to stroke his ego by pushing him as a “Republican” anti-Trump voice.
But he just leaked part of his upcoming floor speech and Flake compared President Trump to one of the worst dictators the world has ever known.
Jeff Flake has been fighting Trump’s America First agenda at every turn.
The economy is soaring and President Trump’s historic tax cuts are set to save the average American family about $2,000 per year.
So Flake is grasping at straws to attack Trump and set up his own 2020 presidential bid.
On Wednesday, Flake plans on taking to the U.S. Senate floor to go on a long anti-Trump rant.
Flake leaked his speech to MSNBC beforehand so they could glowingly report on his desperate attack, in which he compares Trump to Stalin.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that President Donald Trump’s declaration that media is “the enemy of the people” is a throwback to Josef Stalin that should have no place in political discourse.
“I’m saying he borrowed that phrase,” Flake told MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt of Trump’s choice of words. “It was popularized by Josef Stalin, used by Mao as well — enemy of the people. It should be noted that Nikita Khrushchev who followed Stalin, forbade its use, saying that was too loaded and that it maligned a whole group or class of people, and it shouldn’t be done.
“I don’t think that we should be using a phrase that’s been rejected as too loaded by a Soviet dictator.”
Flake is trying to position himself as the anti-Trump “Republican” alternative for 2020.
But as Trump’s policies continue to improve the economy, Americans will continue to ignore Flake’s shrill cries.
