Never-Trumper Jeff Flake just proved he’s a sore loser with this attack on Trump supporters
Jeff Flake is the leading voice for the few Never-Trump Republicans left in office.
He’s a constant fixture on mainstream media shows.
And he just stooped to a new low with this insult to Trump supporters.
Flake is claiming that the Republican Party is doomed despite the fact that he’s one that is being forced to retire because no one likes him.
But he’s pointing the finger at Trump’s supporters.
The Hill reports:
Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said in a new interview that the Republican Party has been inured to the danger of President Trump’s continued criticism of special counsel Robert Mueller.
“It’s like the party is a frog slowly boiling in water, being conditioned to not be worried, to not think too hard about what’s happening around them,” Flake told The Washington Post.
“They feel at a loss about what to do because it’s the president’s party, without any doubt,” he said. “So, there’s a lot of whistling by the graveyard these days.”
Flake, who has been a longtime critic of Trump’s, is in a standoff with other Senate Republicans over Trump’s judicial nominees.
President Trump has a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans.
He swooped in promising to drain the swamp and the Republican base is rewarding him.
Jeff Flake’s failure was siding with the establishment wing of the party, which has done nothing but stab grassroots conservatives in the back.
In fact he’s even threatening to block all of Trump’s judicial nominees during the lame duck session of Congress.
But Flake and other never-Trumpers like John Kasich are trying to position themselves for a 2020 primary challenge.
The media would be cheering them on all the way.
But Jeff Flake’s influence is waning and he will soon be a distant memory.
The only question that remains is how much trouble will Flake give Trump on his way out?
And will he challenge the President in a 2020 primary?
