The outgoing RINO Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has burned many bridges with the Republican Party over the past couple of years, but it appears burning bridges was not quite enough for the Senator who’s unashamedly joined the Democrat Mob and their efforts to destroy President Trump. Yesterday, the unpopular, retiring Republican Senator from Arizona, Jeff Flake, who delayed his vote on Justice Kavanaugh’s nomination, after two Soros funded female activists cornered him in an elevator, told 60 minutes that he hopes Trump will be challenged by a Republican in the 2020 primary.
The Washington Examiner wrote about Flake’s interview yesterday and tweeted a link to their story titled: Jeff Flake: ‘I fear for the future’ of the Republican Party”
Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume, who’s known for his gentle, but sometimes biting demeanor destroyed the outgoing Senator with this tweet, in reply to the Washington Examiner headline.
Hume tweeted: “Says a man who no longer seems to have a future within it”, reminding Flake that he is one of the Republican Party’s least favorite lawmakers. Hume seems to be suggesting that Flake’s exit from the Republican Party was inevitable, as the Party no longer has any use for him.

“I do hope that somebody does run in the primary against the president,” said Flake. “I fear for the future of the party if we don’t remember who we are and what principled conservatism really is. And decency, we’ve got to get back to it.”
Flake told C-SPAN host Steve Scully he found it “disturbing” how Trump’s supporters still cheer “lock her up” at his rallies about 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“This is the president’s party right now. No doubt. To win in a Republican primary around the country you have to really embrace the president’s policies and condone his behavior. That’s the bottom line right now, but it won’t always be that way,” he added. “It does make me fear that it’s going to be a longer process to get out of this than it should be. But we will. We have to. Anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.”
Flake admitted that he’d like to stay another term, but just couldn’t find a way to get along with President Trump. It should be noted, that the Republican Senator was able to get along perfectly fine with Barack Obama, the President whose stated goal was the fundamental transformation of America…
“I never did warm to the president, in the campaign or as he governed,” said Flake. “These days, you not only have to embrace the president, you have to embrace all of his politics and his behavior in order to get through a Republican primary. That was never in the cards for me. I just couldn’t do it. I would have liked to have stayed maybe for another term.”
