Former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is reportedly the frontman for about 24 irrelevant ex-members of Congress who have formed a Republicans for Biden contingent in an announcement obviously timed for the first day of the RNC nominating convention.
Impeachment-supporter Flake is scheduled to make a speech this afternoon touting his support for Sleepy Joe, which will likely get disproportionate coverage in the media. He’s already trending on anti-Trump Twitter.
The perhaps aptly named Flake declined to run for reelection in 2018 because he knew he was so unpopular he couldn’t survive the primary.
Globalist Republicans who are backing Biden are among those who helped sell out our country to China, the European Union, and other entities, love the Deep State, and favor endless overseas wars, among their other accomplishments.
What these “principled” RINOs seem to be disregarding is that Biden’s puppet-masters will usher in a far-left agenda for America if the Delaware basement-dweller somehow wins the presidency.
It’s possible that Flake and others are angling for a job in a purported Biden administration as a way to reboot their moribund careers.
According to the Biden campaign, however, in a remarkable example of projection, “These former members of Congress cited Trump’s corruption, destruction of democracy, blatant disregard for moral decency, and urgent need to get the country back on course as a reason why they support Biden,” Fox News reported.
Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for the Trump campaign, was not impressed with this development.
“Joe Biden has been a failure in the Washington Swamp for a half century, so one should be surprised when Swamp creatures gather to protect one of their own. President Trump has unprecedented support — over 95 percent — among real Republican voters and is also making strong inroads in Biden’s core Democrat constituencies, like Black Americans, Latinos, and union members. President Trump’s record of success for all Americans will carry him to victory in November.”
Trump fans along with some non-fans here and there on Twitter generally agreed with Murtaugh’s assessment. Here is a sample as reaction continues to flow in.
Jeff Flake saw what Democrats and Kamala Harris did to Kavanaugh’s family and wants more of that.

I could care less what Jeff Flake has to say about anything. He lost me on his yes vote for Kavanaugh and he can take his torn, misty eyed look out of here.

Those few compromised figures are marginal in the minds of most Americans. It’s the MSM with their agenda who are trying to keep Jeff Flake & few others on life support.

Ok so Flakes decides to support the guy who’s party supports unrestricted abortion, the rioters and looters who are destroying cities, spied on a presidential campaign through a bogus warrant, etc, etc, etc.
What a Jackass! And by the way, who really cares?

AWEsome! The more failed RINOs that come out and publicly endorse Biden, the higher President Trump’s poll numbers go. Next up, loser Mitt Romney!
VOTE TRUMP 2020!

When you’re endorsing Joe Biden, you’re endorsing the Democrat platform. Just want to make that disturbing fact abundantly clear. Yikes.

All RINOs. All politicians of convenience with no moral foundation.

Oh Jesus! This officially cost Trump his re-election *eyeroll*

Calling Flake a Republican is like saying Eric Clapton and I play guitar.
