Heading into November, t’s just one big happy family in the Republican party. Except for maybe in Arizona, where erstwhile “never-Trumper” Jeff Flake decided to give up his Senate seat and possibly salvage a future political career. He’s not happy that his vacant seat attracted the likes of notorious criminal Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County. Let the sniping begin.
Flake, in an interview with CNN on Tuesday afternoon, said he did not expect Arpaio’s candidacy to last long and would not support him because the controversial former sheriff is “not our best foot forward as Republicans.”
“I know he doesn’t like me. But who cares? He’s not running. He’s saying that I’m not going to last more than a month. That I’ll leave,” Arpaio said in an interview Wednesday morning on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “Well, what about him leaving? He didn’t have the guts to face the people to get reelected. At least I got the guts to face all the detractors, the Democratic Party, you name it. So he can have his opinion. I got mine. It doesn’t bother me at all.”
Lovely, just lovely. Keep it up guys, your country needs you to devolve even further. It’s the best way to oust you all and save this democracy.
