Republican In Name Only (RINO) Jeff Flake announced Tuesday he is retiring from the US Senate. Apparently, our Alpha-Male President, Donald J. Trump, is too much for Beta-Male Snow- Flake to take! Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!
Sen. Jeff Flake abruptly announced Tuesday he won't run for re-election after all in the 2018 midterm elections, leave the Senate when his term ends in January 2019 and delivered a blistering rebuke of President Trump's behavior.
The Arizona Republic announced on the Senate floor that he could "better serve my country and conscience" by dropping his re-election bid, "freeing myself of the political consideration that consumed far too much bandwidth," he said.
Flake issued a thinly-veiled take-down of President Trump, criticizing the "personal attacks," the "threats against principles, freedom and institutions" and "flagrant disregard for truth and decency." He argued that recklessness, outrageous and unhinged behavior have been excused as "telling it like it is," but he warned that when such behavior "emanates from the top of government," he said it's something else.
COMMENTARY: The sad truth is that President Trump DOES "tell it like it is" and whiny liberals like Jeff Flake can't take it. Good riddance.
