Default Media hail Flake and Corker, but new narrative is that Trump whipped them

The praise for Senators Flake and Corked is based on a cynical motive for the Trump hating media. But now a more sober realization dawns.

Quote:
Their stinging criticism of Donald Trump matches what many journalists and pundits have said publicly or, in some instances, privately. In fact, the indictment delivered by two Republican senators gives them cover to shine a spotlight on this harsh assessment without appearing partisan. These are, after all, members of the presidentís own party.

But other questions were surfacing yesterday as the dust settled. Namely, if Flake and Corker are so appalled by Trumpís conduct in office, why are they quitting?


It is the very act of saying they wonít run again that has liberated them to rip the president in such personal terms. But that same act means they are instant lame ducks with dwindling political power, and wonít be around after 2018.
The never Trump Republicans try to cloak their intrasigence in noble terms but like Flake their true motivation is obvious. Trump is a direct threat to their business as usual, braying about their opposition but then rolling over for Democrats.

Quote:
There is a small but significant Republican opposition to Trump, but its leading figures still donít want to go to war with him directly, preferring philosophical attacks and tactical withdrawal to confrontation and probable defeat ...

"And now Jeff Flake of Arizona has delivered a barnburner of a Senate address about the civic costs of the Trump presidency ó while simultaneously declaring that because he canít win his primary in a Trumpified party, he wonít even stay and fight it out ...

"And an anti-Trump movement that gives high-minded speeches but never mounts candidates confirms Trumpís claim to face establishment opposition while also confirming his judgment of the establishmentís guts and stamina ó proving that theyíre all low-energy, all 'liddle' men, all unwilling to fight him man to man."

Really? Trump backed a primary challenger to Flake forcing him to retire rather than face a humiliating defeat in the primary election. Now it's "totalitarian" to endorse a candidate in an election?

Again, Flake is trailing in the primary polls by 30 points. It is insulting to the voters to claim they are supporting a KKK or fruitcake candidate because Trump endorsed her.

After Trump won the nomination in a meeting with Flake and other Republicans Flake continued to spew hatred for Trump. Trump rightfully took offense, promising to back a primary challenger for Flake. Turns out Flake was the one out of touch with the voters.

It is insulting to the voters to claim they are supporting a KKK or fruitcake candidate because Trump endorsed her.
While in the Arizona state legislature, she tried to outlaw enforcement of the law
In 2016, she did an interview with Alex Jones, a notable far-right radio show host and conspiracy theorist who believes the September 11 attacks were an inside government job.

Last year, she made headlines after calling McCain "old" and "weak." More recently, in July, she sparked social media backlash after she said McCain should step aside as quickly as possible following the news this week of his brain cancer diagnosis.

Though she has not been favored by many, Trump appears to have thrown support behind her

After Trump won the nomination in a meeting with Flake and other Republicans Flake continued to spew hatred for Trump. Trump rightfully took offense, promising to back a primary challenger for Flake. Turns out Flake was the one out of touch with the voters.

No, you just lash out calling people liars, idiots and evil then claiming they are the ones who engage in such tactics.

Flake ceaselessly whined about Trump's policies being out of step with the voters in the primary, the general and after the inauguration. Now it turns out Flake is the one who is out of touch so he throws a tantrum on the Senate floor and quits. He is the perfect Republican candidate for Democrats, dedicated to criticism of the President and willing to fold under pressure.

McCain easily defeated challenger Keli Ward in the primary. I am convinced their are people who robotically vote for him because he is a real American hero.

If you are correct that Ward engaged in smearing McCain then it goes to show how deeply unpopular Flake is with Arizona voters. Even donations from the Republican Congressional committee couldn't rescue Flake.
