Arizona lawmaker Jeff Flake (pictured) compared Donald Trump to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin on Wednesday, delivering a blistering attack on the president to a nearly empty U.S. Senate chamber.
The RINO (Republican In Name Only) has become one of Trump's favorite targets, earning a presidential nickname – 'Jeff Flakey' – since his impending retirement has freed him to openly castigate the White House on several fronts.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said of Flake: “He's criticizing the president because he has terrible poll numbers. And he is, I think, looking for some attention.”
If Flake wasn’t retiring he couldn’t get away with slandering the President.
