There’s ridiculous, then there’s outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. All one needs to realize to see how absurd this guy is if that if President Trump were anything like Joseph Stalin, Flake would have disappeared a long time ago. Apparently, though, this is his MSNBC audition.
United States Senator Jeff Flake will compare President Trump’s attacks on the media to that of Joseph Stalin in a speech he will give on Wednesday.
The Arizona Republican will deliver the message on the Senate Floor and in an excerpt released he says Trump ‘uses words infamously spoken by Joseph Stalin to describe his enemies.’
An excerpt for the talk reads: ‘It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase ‘enemy of the people’.
‘Even Nikita Khrushchev forbade its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin for the purpose of ‘annihilating such individuals’ who disagreed with the supreme leader.’
Considering Stalin was a hero to American leftwingers, won’t this confuse Democrats by comparing Trump to a liberal icon?
The speech comes after Flake announced in October he would no longer run for re-election following the ‘alarming and dangerous state of affairs’ under the Trump administration.
It also comes on the same day the President is expected to announced his own Fake News Awards, according to Trump.
He says the awards will be given out to the most corrupt and biased news outlets in mainstream media.
After Trump brings us the Fakies, maybe he can then do the Flakies. Or perhaps a sane Republican can sit him down and talk some sense into him.
This pretty much sums it up:
Shameless SnowFlake auditioning for a job in fake media==> https://t.co/aM7L6bO29V

We’re almost embarrassed for this guy.
Jeff Flake is expected to compare Trump to Stalin
Stalin was one of the most evil people in world history, who killed over 20 million civilians
This type of comparison cheapens the evil of Stalin and is disgusting rhetoric towards our President pic.twitter.com/jdFfTtrE5x
