Amazing. A senator is prevented from using the elevator by ranting leftist protestors, and he decides to potentially change the course of U.S. history by insisting his vote on Brett Kavanaugh is contingent on appeasing Democrats – temporarily – with an week-long FBI investigation.
Here’s what he said Sunday on 60 Minutes during a buddy-interview with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons Delaware, who has gotten what he wants while giving Republicans nothing in return.
I don’t think anybody expected, you know, what happened on Friday to happen. And I can’t say that I did either. I just knew that we couldn’t move forward, that I couldn’t move forward without hitting the pause button. Because, what I was seeing, experiencing, in an elevator and watching it in committee and just thinking, this is ripping our country apart.
Snowflake. I’ll tell you what will rip the country apart, another week of this while the FBI investigates. And then if Kavanaugh goes down, conservatives will be infuriated beyone belief. They know Democrats don’t sabotage themselves because the get overcome with emotion. The divide will be worse.
Apparently the White House is trying not to criticize Flake because they’re worried he’ll get emotional again and do something worse.
If Kavanaugh goes down and the Senate turns Democratic, you will have Jeff Flake to thank for preventing the conservative-majority Supreme Court that voters chose when they elected Donald Trump.
