Jeff Flake, brave rhetorical critic of Trump-era Republican orthodoxy:
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that Republicans should be at the forefront of combating climate change, following a United Nations report warning of catastrophic warming.
“I think so,” Flake said when asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether or not he believes Republicans are going the wrong direction on climate change.
“I hope that we can move along with the rest of the world and address this,” Flake said.
Jeff Flake, legislator:
The punchline is that Flake will surely be able to parlay 2 years of Furrowed Brows and Expressions of Concern prior to voting a straight Trump party line into a life-tenured position as a ubiquitous Sunday talk show guest.
