Never-Trumper Jeff Flake just let his 2020 plans slip in this interview
MSNBC’s favorite Republican, Jeff Flake, is at it again.
He sat down for an interview and was asked if he was planning on running for president.
And his answer will leave you scratching your head.
In an interview with C-SPAN, outgoing Senator Jeff Flake said, “every Senator probably thinks of that” when asked about running for president.
He downplayed the probability that he would actually run.
But he said he hopes someone primaries President Trump in 2020.
Watch the interview below:
Jeff Flake announced that he was quitting his senate seat months ago when he realize he had no shot at winning re-election.
He claims to fight for principles.
But this is coming from a man who caved into emotional anti-Kavanaugh protesters yelling at him in an elevator.
He has no backbone.
Later in the interview, Flake yet again urged someone to primary challenge President Trump in 2020, saying:
“I do hope that there are other candidates out there. If nothing else, to remind Republicans of what we used to and will need to stand for if we’re going to be a major force in the future.”
Flake is on an Obama-style apology tour, apologizing for Trump constantly winning.
One must wonder what is going through Flake’s head.
He doesn’t seem to believe that cutting taxes and regulations, securing the border, and nominating constitutionalist judges at every level of the judiciary count as “conservative principles.”
He’d rather go on MSNBC and hawk his book.
