GOP Senator Goes On MSNBC, Won't Rule Out Running Against Trump Or Voting For 2020 Dem

If you were thinking the GOP senator was Jeff Flake, you’re wrong.

I mean, you’re probably right, but in this specific instance, you’re wrong.

From Daily Caller:

Once briefly one of President Donald Trump’s staunchest supporters, outgoing Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker would not say if the president should face a primary challenger in 2020.

Corker: “I do think we’ve got to remember what the Republican Party is. What’s happening right now is not the standard Republicanism that we’ve had in our country for many, many years and it’s very different.

Corker refused to rule out a challenge of his own to Trump, while also declining to say if the president should face a primary challenger at all.

I want to get away from here and think about that. I think it’s important to remind people that we’re going through an anomaly right now as it relates to much of the standard Republican focus that’s been around for a long time.

Retiring RINO Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) is considering a 2020 primary challenge against President Trump.

Jeff Flake is not ruling out a GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump in 2020, telling Politico and The Hill Friday that “somebody needs to run.”

Flake: “I’ve not ruled it out. I’ve not ruled it in. Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side.

I hope somebody does [run], just to remind Republicans what it means to be conservative and what it means to be decent. We’ve got to bring that back. You can whip up the base for a cycle or two but it wears thin. Anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.

Trump has a few words for Flake.

Flake partnered with Democrat Sen. Chris Coons (DE) to get back at Trump.

Flake’s anti-Trump agenda continues to this day and will probably continue for years to come.

From The Hill:

Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) on Thursday urged fellow Republicans to condemn an immigration-themed video President Trump released as part of an effort to stoke his base ahead of next week’s midterms, calling the ad “sickening.”

WATCH:

Meanwhile, President Trump’s overall approval rating just hit 50%, which is quite high considering the majority of news coverage of the commander-in-chief is negative.

An even more interesting statistic should have Democrats very worried about the midterm elections.

Black support for Trump has now hit a whopping 40%.

Minnesota Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar may run for president in 2020.

Yeah, for real.

I don’t get it, either.

After a federal judge declared Obamacare unconstitutional, Klobuchar went on CBS to claim America needs “universal health care.”

Run on that, Amy. See how it works out for you.

From Free Beacon:

“Face the Nation” host Margret Brennan asked Klobuchar if Democrats should now move to push Medicare for all.

“You heard some disagreement among Republicans how to do that, also disagreement within the Democratic Party on how to handle health care. Former Attorney General Eric Holder says it’s time now to move to some version of Medicare for all and end this nonsense,” Brennan said. “Do you agree with him?”

Klobuchar: “We need universal health care. There are many ways to get there. That is one of them. The other is to at least expand Medicare to age 55. There’s a number of bills that I’m part of, including allowing expansion of Medicaid, which I think is something we’re not talking enough about, that [Democratic] Senator Schatz from Hawaii is leading.

The ruling was absurd. Justice Roberts, in conservative Court, has already ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional, unlike what Mr. Miller said. And in fact, you can have part of it not exist and you can still have the rest of it protect Americans. And that is exactly where this is headed.
