Never Trumper Jeff Flake Will Vote for Joe Biden, Claims Democrat Victory Will Be “Good for Conservatism”
Longtime Never Trump Republican and former Senator Jeff Flake confirmed he’d vote for Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 Presidential election on Tuesday, going so far as to claim that a defeat of President Donald Trump in the election would “better” for the Republican Party. Flake was speaking in an interview with the Washington Post.
Flake was drummed out of office in 2018 for his relentless hostility to President Donald Trump and ‘MAGA’ Republicans. The elitist Arizona Senator backed down from his primary election upon realizing he had little to no popular support in the state, having alienated nearly every vital Republican constituency through his endless sanctimonious bloviating.
“This won’t be the first time I’ve voted for a Democrat — though not for president,” bragged Flake of the 2020 election, all but confirming that he’ll be voting for Democratic party elder Joe Biden in the election. “Last time I voted for a third-party candidate. But I will not vote for Donald Trump.”
Flake went on to claim that Trump’s conservative populism represents little more than “anger and resentment,” a canned political talking point he’s been using to cast aspersions on the ‘MAGA’ movement since Trump’s candidacy in 2015. He contrasted it with what he apparently sees as a preferable establishment Republican “governing philosophy,” utterly failing to recognize that the globalist agenda of the old Republican establishment crushed American manufacturing, subjugated the national economy under job-crushing globalist trade deals, and sucked America into a series of costly and pointless Middle East wars.
Flake is openly hoping for a “sound defeat” of President Trump, conclusively taking his place in the Democratic Party where the elite liberal has always truly belonged. He says such an outcome would be preferable “long term for the Republican Party, you bet. And for conservatism as well.”
Flake seeks to return the Republican Party to its pre-2015 establishment status quo, when globalist liberals such as Mitt Romney and John McCain utilized the party to advance an agenda of mass immigration, seemingly endless foreign wars, and crony kickbacks to big business corporate interests.
