On Sunday, President Donald Trump responded to Arizona Senator Jeff Flake(y)’s comment about the future of the Republican Party that caught by a hot mic at an event in Mesa last week.
Flake was talking with Mesa Mayor John Giles when his comment that if the Republican Party became “the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast,” was caught on the hot microphone.
Flake, one of the least popular members of Congress has opted not to run for re-election.
In August, Cronkite News reported on a poll conducted in July by the website Morning Consult. Pollsters “looked at the popularity of each senator in his or her home state and put Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake in the bottom three – trailing only Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”
In his book, “Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and A Return to Principle,” which has been widely panned, Flake claimed that the Republican Party has rejectied traditional conservative values. Flake also claimed that Republicans who support Trump are “in denial.”
Arizona politicos say it is Flake, who is in denial.
