Trump Tells Jeff Flake To His Face That He Will Ensure He Is Not Reelected If He Doesn’t Pull His Head Out Of His Ass

He also asked Ben Sasse if he wanted to see Hillary elected. Sasse wouldn’t “respond in kind.” Flake, btw, is not yet up for reelection, but it was a nice punch anyway. Perhaps Trump was referring to the future.

Excerpted from The New York Times: Trump’s private meeting on Thursday with 41 Senate Republicans, including some who have publicly criticised him repeatedly, grew acidly contentious, according to multiple lawmakers and other people present who insisted on anonymity to candidly recount the proceedings.

Mr Trump at one point jabbed at Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, who has openly called for a third-party candidate to thwart Mr Trump’s chances, asking Mr Sasse rhetorically if he preferred to have Ms Clinton as president. Mr Sasse did not respond in kind.

Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona.

When Flake stood up and introduced himself, Trump told him, “You’ve been very critical of me.”

“Yes, I’m the other senator from Arizona — the one who didn’t get captured — and I want to talk to you about statements like that,” Flake responded, according to two Republican officials.

Mr Flake told him that he wanted to support Mr Trump, but could not because of Mr Trump’s statements about Mexican-Americans and attacks on a federal judge over his Hispanic descent. Mr Trump responded by saying that he had been going easy on Mr Flake so far, but that he would ensure that Mr Flake lost his re-election bid this year if the senator did not change his tune.

    If Kelli Ward can beat McPain-in-the-ass then another contender can take out the Flake.

    Flake, his last name said it all.

    Jeff Flake is a giant asshole and a scumbag. Hope he dies a slow death after a debilitating stroke.
