Remember Flake's Impassioned Speech When Obama And Holder Went After The Media? Yeah, Me Neither.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s speech on the Senate floor this morning absurdly ignored how the “free press” he chose to defend against President Trump colluded with Clinton, Inc. and the Democrat National Committee to destroy him.  It was what I would describe as a “deep state” oratory and a simultaneous job interview for MSNBC or CNN which shall be henceforth referred to as The Empire of Lies.
In his 2,117-word diatribe Flake decreed, “No politician will ever get to tell us what the truth is and is not. And anyone who presumes to try to attack or manipulate the truth to his own purposes should be made to realize the mistake and be held to account. That is our job here. And that is just as Madison, Hamilton, and Jay would have it.”
“Of course, a major difference between politicians and the free press is that the press usually corrects itself when it gets something wrong. Politicians don’t.”
We knew for days before Flake’s missive he intended to compare President Trump’s disdain for the “fake news” to the savage Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.  As more and more people became aware of his intent, he drew an unrelenting backlash and tried to walk it all back with this tweet:
The Twitterverse had a few tongue-in-cheek thoughts for “Snowflake” following his speech today:
