I THINK JEFF FLAKE IS DESPICABLE. All of you know I’m no big Trump fan, but for Flake to call himself “A true Conservative” conflicts with what he says. The sorriest part is he’ll be in government, blocking Trump, for the year 2018.
Everybody knows Trump is losing support because of his personality and because of the constant media hate; there is no doubt about that, so please, don’t even bother to try to deny that, dear readers……But for Flake to say Trump is pandering to “populist appeal” is nuts. The PEOPLE, the POPULACE, need to stick to their guns.
- 1.support for the concerns of ordinary people:
And the downside to that is…WHAT?
What’s “backward looking” about fighting illegals, fighting one-sex bathrooms, etc.?
The linked article says “Flake lamented petty insults in his speech, telling his colleagues Republican that they have lost their way. He called Trump’s behavior “reckless, outrageous and undignified” and warned Republicans that indulging in scapegoating and petty resentments would lead them to become the minority party soon enough.
“Such behavior does not project strength, because our strength comes from our values,” the senator said. “It instead reflects a corruption of spirit and a weakness.””
Well, Mr. Flake, have you ever considered what gets Trump’s goat..? That, usually, is Trump REacting when he tweets his ridiculous, thin skinned BS tweets! I believe he’s DEAD WRONG and totally undignified in those tweets, but to suggest he’s ‘reckless’ (that’s applying to wars….anybody honestly believe Trump has started the N Korea scares? Of course not! He just doesn’t believe in lying down and letting nukes take over the world like Obama did. And Bush).
“There are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles,” Flake told his colleagues. “Now is such a time.” Actually, Mr. Flake, it appears you are risking your sanity and you’re not quite as smart as I’d thought you are…. and I won’t be surprised when you’re a frequent guest on CNN.
On the other hand; If Donald Trump doesn’t STOP THE INSULTS, THE PUBLIC BICKERING WITH ASSOCIATES EVEN IN HIS PARTY!!, LET SOMEONE ELSE HAVE THE LAST WORD AND JUST SAY “I’M SORRY YOU FEEL THAT WAY, I HAVE NOTHING MORE TO SAY”, HE’LL BE TOAST. OR JUST SHUT UP, DONALD!!….things will get worse. Do it with DIGNITY. Don’t back off, just do it with DIGNITY!
And, of course, Bannon has THREATENED FLAKE. Is Flake getting out for fear of Bannon?
