Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake recently claimed the Republican Party was dying because of President Trump.
From The Hill:
Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Sunday said the crowds at rallies for President Trump and other Republicans reflect “spasms of a dying party,” adding that the GOP will have to formulate a governing agenda to reach more voters.
“When you look at some of the audiences cheering for Republicans, sometimes, you look out there and you say, ‘those are the spasms of a dying party,’ ” Flake said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“When you look at the lack of diversity, sometimes, and it depends on where you are, obviously, but by and large, we’re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy,” he continued.
Flake also refused to rule out a challenge to 45 in 2020, which you can see at this link.
Conservative actor and American patriot James Woods wasn’t about to let Flake slide, sending arguably the best tweet of the year…
You mean the party that has the Presidency, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the majority of State Legislatures, the majority of State Governors, and is poised the steamroll over the broke Democrats in 2018, 2020, and 2024? You mean THAT dying party? #NumbskullJeffFlake? https://t.co/TULfAGEvMz

Can’t argue with that now can you, Jeff?
More on Flake, who refused to participate in an event celebrating the GOP tax cut bill which will benefit millions of Americans.
From The Hill:
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said he skipped a gathering of congressional Republicans at the White House on Wednesday because he did not want to attend an event where lawmakers are expected to simply “stand around and clap.”
The event, attended by House and Senate GOP leaders and a number of Republican lawmakers, was held to celebrate congressional Republicans’ passage of a massive tax rewrite.
“I can only take so many of those stand around and clap things, I’d rather be here,” Flake told reporters at the Capitol.

How do you like them apples, Jeff? Woods went for the jugular!
America would be so much greater if there were more people like James Woods and less like Jeff Flake.
It would be great to see a Flake response, but he should be careful – Woods doesn’t play around!
