Republican Senator Jeff Flake: Party In Denial About President Donald Trump | Morning Joe | MSNBC


>>>JOINING US NOW MEMBER OF THE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE, JEFF FLAKE OF ARIZONA. HIS NEW BOOK CONSCIENCE OF A CONSERVATIVE A REJECTION OF DESTRUCTIVE POLITICS AND A RETURN TO PRINCIPAL IS OUT TODAY. IN A PART OF THE BOOK YOU WRITE FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS IN DENIAL ABOUT DONALD TRUMP. YOU WRITE IN PART THIS. IT WAS WE CONSERVATIVES WHO RIGHTLY AND ROBUSTLY ASSERTED OUR CONSTITUTIONAL PREROGATIVES AS A CO-EQUAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT WHEN THE DEMOCRAT WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE. BUT WHO DESPITE SOLEMN VOWS TO DO THE SAME IN THE EVENT OF A TRUMP PRESIDENCY HAVE MAINTAINED A SILENCE. TO CARRY ON IN THE SPRING OF 2017 AS IF WHAT WAS HAPPENING WAS NORMAL APPROACHING NORMALCY REQUIRED A DETERMINED SUSPENSION OF CRITICAL FACULTIES. AND TREMENDOUS POWERS OF DENIAL. IF ULTIMATELY OUELY OUR PRINCIP WERE SO MALLEABLE AS TO NO LONGER BE PRINCIPLES, WHAT WAS THE POINT OF VICTORIES IN THE FIRST PLACE. ALL GREAT QUESTIONS. HOW ARE YOU BEING RECEIVED AMONG YOUR COLLEAGUES?>>IT JUST CAME OUT TODAY SO WE’LL SEE.>>BUT YOU’VE BEEN RAISING THESE ISSUES FOR QUITE SOME TIME?>>I’VE BEEN CONCERNED FOR QUITE SOME TIME. IN THE BOOK WE TALK ABOUT BEING A CONSERVATIVE, WHAT IT REALLY MEANS. IT MEANS A LOT ON POLICY. I’M CONCERNED THAT THE TYPE OF POLICIES GOING FORWARD, PROTECTIONISM, ISOLATIONISM, ARE REALLY NOT CONSERVATIVE VALUES, AND I AM CONCERNED ABOUT WHERE THE PARTY GOES IF WE EMBRACE THOSE KIND OF PRINCIPLES. BUT ALSO BEING A CONSERVATIVE MEANS SOMETHING IN TERMS OF DEMEAN AND COMPORTMENT. A CONSERVATIVE IS NOTHING IF PARTICULARLY IN FOREIGN POLICY, IF HE’S NOT MEASURED AND SOBER AND PREDICTABLE. OUR ALLIES NEED TO KNOW THAT. WE NEED TO EMBRACE OUR ALLIES AND RECOGNIZE OUR ADVERSARIES, AND TO DO OTHERWISE IS NOT CONSERVATIVE.>>SO TO ASK YOU TO GO AFTER YOUR FELLOW CONSERVATIVES OR REPUBLICANS WOULD NOT BE FAIR. BUT WHAT ABOUT PUTTING IT THIS WAY. WHAT WERE SOME OF THE KEY MOMENTS ALONG THE WAY? SO FAR IN THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY WHERE YOU AND YOUR FELLOW CONSERVATIVES, REPUBLICANS SHOULD HAVE STOOD UP AND SAID NO?>>WELL, I THINK, AND I HAVE TO SAY MANY CONSERVATIVES DIDN’T COME OUT WITH FIRING OF JIM COMEY.>>WHAT WERE THE BIG MISSED OPPORTUNITIES.>>THE COMEY FIRING. YOU CAN FIRE THE FBI DIRECTOR. COULD HAVE SAID LAST YEAR HE DID THINGS HE SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE. THE WAY HE HANDLED THE CAMPAIGN WASN’T GOOD, BUT THE REASON GIVEN, HEY, THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION, THAT SHOULD HAVE SET OFF MORE ALARM BELLS THAN IT DID, AND I THINK GOING FORWARD WE OUGHT TO BE CAREFUL. THERE’S CONCERN THAT THE A.G. MAY BE FIRED. THAT WOULD BE A REAL CONCERN. AND I’M GLAD THAT SOME CONSERVATIVE ARE STANDING UP AND SAYING THAT CERTAINLY WOULDN’T BE TOLERATED BY CAPITOL HILL.>>SENATOR, IN THE BOOK YOU WRITE A LOT OF THINGS, BUT IN PARTICULAR YOU WRITE ABOUT A MEETING THAT BILL BUCKLEY HAD WITH BARRY GOLD WATER HAD AT A PLACE IN PALM BEACH. GOLD WATER WAS NOT CONCERNED SO MUCH WITH RUNNING AGAINST LINDEN JOHNSON OR NELSON ROCKEFELLER IN A PRIMARY, BUT HE WAS REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE DAMAGE THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY WAS DOING TO THE CAUSE OF CONSERVATISM WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. MY QUESTION TO YOU IS WHAT’S YOUR LEVEL OF CONCERN ABOUT WHAT THE FREEDOM CAUCUS IS DOING TO THE IMAGE OF CONSERVATISM AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY GIVEN THE FACT THAT THEY CHEERED ON, LOVED APPARENTLY, A HEALTH CARE BILL THAT WOULD THROW MORE THAN 22 MILLION AMERICANS OFF OF HEALTH CARE?>>WE CAN ARGUE ABOUT WHAT’S CONSERVATIVE AND WHAT’S NOT WITH REGARD TO HEALTH CARE. I CERTAINLY THINK THAT OBAMACARE NEEDS TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGED, IF NOT REPEALED. I WOULD LOVE TO REPEAL IT AND START AGAIN IF IT WERE UP TO ME. ABOUT 200,000 ARIZONA PEOPLE WILL WAKE UP THIS MORNING WITHOUT HEALTH CARE. THEY PAY THE FINE BUT CAN’T AFFORD THE POLICY. EVEN BIGGER NUMBER HAVE A POLICY BUT CANT AFFORD TO USE IT BECAUSE DEDUCTIBLES ARE SO HIGH. WE’RE HURTING OUT THERE IN TERMS OF WHERE WE NEED TO GO WITH HEALTH CARE. WHAT I’M CONCERNED ABOUT IS POLICIES ON TRADE. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, A FREE TRADE PARTY. WE’RE ONLY 5% OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION, 20% OF THE WORLD’S ECONOMIC OUTPUT. IF WE DON’T FIND NEW MARKETS FOR OUR GOODS, WE DON’T GROW. I’M CONCERNED ABOUT WHERE THE PARTY IS GOING AND THE ANTI-IMMIGRATION FERVOR. THAT’S NOT A PLACE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTS TO BE IN THE FUTURE IF WE’RE GOING TO BE AN INCLUSIVE PARTY THAT SPEAKS TO A BROADER AUDIENCE.>>IN OUR INTERCHANGES WITH YOU OVER THE YEARS, AND I’VE HEARD DEMOCRATS SPEAK ABOUT YOU. YOU’RE A FRIENDLY, OPEN GUY, BUT THERE’S A LEVEL, AND IT’S JUST IMAGE, I UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT IMAGE IS IMPORTANT. THERE’S A LEVEL OF MEANNESS TO CONSERVATISM NOW IN THIS COUNTRY THAT’S BOTHERSOME.>>I DO TALK ABOUT THAT IN THE BOOK. YOU HAVE TO BE MEANER SOMEHOW, AND THAT IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE VALUE. MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS WE’VE GOT SOME HUGE THINGS TO TACKLE. OUR DEBT AND DEFICIT. $20 TRILLION. WE’LL BE ADDING $1 TRILLION A YEAR SOON TO THAT DEBT. THE ONLY WAY TO SOLVE THAT, ANY DECENT BUDGET AGREEMENT WE’VE HAD HAS BEEN WHEN WE’VE HAD DIVIDED GOVERNMENTS. WHEN REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS SAID WE’RE GOING TO SHARE THE RISK. RIGHT NOW WE DON’T HAVE THAT. IF WE ASCRIBE THE WORST MOTIVES TO OUR OPPONENTS AND CALL THEM CLOWNS OR LOSERS, YOU LOSE THE ABILITY TO SIT DOWN AND SOLVE THE BIG ISSUES AND ACTUALLY ENACT CONSERVATIVE POLICY. THAT’S THE PARADOX OF ALL OF THIS. SOMEHOW CONSERVATIVISM HAS BECOME BEING MEAN OR LOUD, AND YOU CAN’T ENACT CONSERVATIVE POLICY IF YOU ACT THAT WAY.>>THE PRESIDENT USED THE WORD MEAN FIRST, JUST FYI.>>SENATOR, SPEAKING OF A NATIONAL DEBT AS REALLY AN ISSUE OF GENERATIONAL THEFT.>>YES.>>AND A MORAL ISSUE. $20 TRILLION IN DEBT. HOW IS IT THAT SUPPOSEDLY A HEALTH CARE BILL THAT TOUCHES A SIXTH OF THE ECONOMY WITH NO IDEA HOW MUCH IT COSTS? TO ME THAT’S NOT CONSERVATIVE. IT’S RADICAL. AND I WONDER HOW THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY RADICALS WHO CLAIM THE MANTLE OF CONSERVATIVISM. AND SPECIFICALLY WE THINK ABOUT THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY IN THE 60s. WHAT’S THEIR EQUIVALENT TODAY? IS IT A ON TALK RADIO OR TV NETWORKS? WHAT’S THE THREAT TO HAVE NO REGARD TO SPENDING?>>CONSERVATIVE ARE NOTHING IF THEY’RE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT DEBT AND THE DEFICIT. LIMITED GOVERNMENT IS THE OUTLINE OF CONSERVATIVISM. BILL BUCKLEY GOT TOGETHER WITH BARRY GOLDWATERS AND EXCOMMUNICATED THE JOHN BIRCHERS FROM THE PARTY. THEY WERE THE EMBLEM OF RESPONSIBILITY. YOU CAN’T EMBRACE CONSPIRACY THEORIES OR TALK ABOUT ALTERNATIVE FACTS. THERE ARE TRUTHS THAT ARE SELF-EVIDENT, AND WE HAVE TO AS A COUNTRY AGREE ON CERTAIN THINGS. IF WE DON’T, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE HARD TIME MOVING AHEAD AND SOLVING THE PROBLEMS.>>HARD TIMES AHEAD.>>SO JUST TO BE CLEAR, SENATOR McCAIN VOTED AGAINST YOU GUYS IN ARIZONA, HE VOTED AGAINST THE BILL BECAUSE HE SAID HE DIDN’T HAVE CONFIDENCE IT WOULD GO TO CONGRESS. THAT THING WOULD COME BACK AND HOPEFULLY WE’D GET THERE. IF HE FIRES MUELLER, IS THAT A CATALYST TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IMPEACHMENT.>>I WOULDN’T WANT TO SAY WHAT IT’S A CATALYST FOR, BUT WE CAN’T STAND FOR THAT.>>YOU TALKED ABOUT THE DISPOSITION AND HIS DEMEANOR. IS THAT REALLY THE BIGGER ISSUE HERE? BECAUSE AT LEAST IF YOU GOT TO DEBATING ISSUES AND POLICIES IN A SERIOUS WAY, A LOT OF WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WOULD COME OUT IS YOU CAN’T GET TO THAT BECAUSE HE HAS SO MUCH PERSONAL NEGATIVE FACADE AROUND HIM?>>AND IT’S NOT JUST HIM. I POINT OUT IN THE BOOK, THIS IS NOT JUST A PROBLEM OF THIS PRESIDENCY. THIS WAS A LONG-TIME AND COMING. I ENTERED IN CONGRESS IN 2001. I AM AFTER RUNNING THE GOLD WATER INSTITUTE. FLOOR SAYING I FEEL LIKE WE’RE MINUTEMEN CALLED TO THE BATTLE FRONT AND NOW WE’RE TOLD THE REVOLUTION IS OVER AND NOW WE’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THINGS LIKE A PRESCRIPTION DRUG BENEFIT OR NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND INSTEAD OF THE BIG BATTLES OF IDEAS THAT REPUBLICANS USED TO ENGAGE IN. BUT WE BECAME A COARSER PARTY DURING THAT TIME. STANDING UP WITH FEW REPUBLICANS WILLING TO STAND UP AND SAY THAT’S WRONG, THAT’S OUT OF LINE. I THINK WHETHER IT’S A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRAT DOING THAT, WE OUGHT TO STAND UP AND SAY SOME THINGS SHOULD BE OUT OF BOUNDS, AND I THINK WE’RE LOSING SOME OF THAT.>>SENATOR FLAKE, YOU TALK ABOUT JUST HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO ACTUALLY HAVE PRINCIPLES WHEN IT COMES TO FOREIGN POLICY, AND SOME OF THE DAMAGE THAT DONALD TRUMP HAS DONE TO OUR FOREIGN POLICY, I’M CURIOUS, HOW CONFIDENT ARE YOU IN THIS ADMINISTRATION’S STRATEGY WHEN IT COMES TO NORTH KOREA?>>I HAVE TREMENDOUS CONFIDENCE IN GENERAL MATTIS AND REX TILLERSON. HE’S A GREAT GUY. I DO THINK PRESIDENT HAS PICKED A GOOD CABINET AND SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH GOOD PEOPLE. HE’S DONE SOME GOOD THINGS, I THINK. SUPREME COURT OF JUSTICE IS GOOD. SOME GOOD FEDERAL JUDGES. I AM ON BOARD WITH SOME OF WITH WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAS DONE, BUT WITH REGARD TO FOREIGN POLICY MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS, AS I MENTIONED, WE HAVE ALWAYS STOOD FOR PRINCIPLES AND HAVE DONE SO IN A SOBER, CONSISTENT, PREDICTABLE MANNER, AND CHAOS IS THE LAST THING THAT OUR ALLIES AND ADVERSARIES NEED TO BE SEEING. AND I’M AFRAID THEY’RE SEEING TOO MUCH OF THAT. AND OUR RESPECT FOR INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS THAT WE HAD A HAND IN OR WERE THE MAJOR PART IN BUILDING LIKE NATO. WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION. THESE KIND OF THINGS, I THINK WE NEED TO RESPECT AND UTILIZE TO HOLD OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD, AND I WONDER ABOUT OUR STANDING AROUND THE WORLD NOW.>>DO YOU THINK THE NEW CHIEF OF STAFF KELLY CAN MAYBE HELP REIGN IN SOME OF THE CHAOS?>>I DO. I’M GLAD HE’S THERE. I THINK THERE’S A LOT OF RESPECT FOR HIM ON CAPITOL HILL. I LIKE THE START THAT HE’S GOT. AND SO I’M VERY HOPEFUL THAT THAT WILL HELP.>>OKAY. THE BOOK IS “CONSCIENCE OF A

    According to the stock market the American economy has gained 4 trillion in 6 months.
    Stop conflating illegals with immigrants. Immigrants spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours studying to be American, illegals overstay a visa or jump our border. Illegals have kids who they then use to get welfare, food stamps, send them to our public schools.
    We have finite resources to help our poor, when we allow border jumpers to use services they never pay a dime for, the American poor suffer. And it is almost solely communities of color who are hurt the most.

    8.20 I love Harold Ford. Ford holds all his comments until he is the last questioner. Then, he gets Flake to make the commitments, draw the lines. First, just to be clear, McCain voted "no", because he was not confident the bill would go to conference (I.e., House Republicans could have just voted on what came down from the Senate, and then who would "own health care"?). If Mueller is fired, then . . . If . . . is demeanor, comportment not the issue, with such a negative facade operating?

    Harold did not say it, and he may be too young to know it, but one main reasons Goldwater and Buckley dissociated themselves from the Birchers is that the latter were thinly veiled racists, whereas Goldwater was not. His stance on the Civil Rights Bill was staunchly based in states rights, unlike some of the southern Democrats.

    Some of that debt comes from President Donald Trump spending. Nobody gave him a budget for his spending. But consistently want to take money from the poor or middle class people. The middle class is who carry the United States, if people pull together and quit spending everything will fall.

    None of what was being discussed in the interview means anything to the Republicans of today who chose a non Republican/Conservative to lead their party and become the President.

    None of his adversaries in the party running with him ever tried to make that point stick. They were all too eager to win by any means necessary, even if that meant voting for someone who on paper and in his life is nowhere near what they would normally call a Republican/Conservative.

    The GOP was willing to go with a man who was obviously unfit for such an important office in order to get into power. They continue to enable him even though they all can see what a serious mistake they made. He is a loose cannon that they can't get under control and he is friggin sinking our ship. He isn't even a Republican. He isn't a Democrat. He is a party of Trump and a lousy 32% of ignoramuses in this country who think he is great. F**k them! I'm a Democrat and don't have much in common with Republican political beliefs but there have been Republicans I have respected as people. No more. I have never been so ashamed by a group of Americans. Very few with anything to lose have stood up to this insanity. With a couple of exceptions only the ones out of office have spoken up in the last six months. Shame.

    Such hypocrites are these republicans, they say they aren't for big government yet they push to enact laws to control our lives and remove any individual choice. They say they are for balanced budgets yet they give gigantic tax cuts the the top 1% and the largest corporations instead of balancing the books. They continue to push a failed Trickle Down economic policies when it has been shown that when the wealthiest and large corporations get extra money it doesn't go back in to the economy, where as when the poor and middle class get extra money almost every dollar is put back in to the economy. Republicans keep shouting they are the party of Lincoln yet they have been courting the racist vote for over 50 years.

    I don't see the Republican Party as being principled just as the party for the self interests of the rich and white to the exclusion of all others. A principled Republican Party would be a real novelty.

    McConnell is being downright disingenuous in that the very premise of the trumpcare bill he keeps repeating is an out and out lie. The ACA, "Obamacare" is not collapsing. It is not failing. Whatever difficulties the program is having is entirely due to deliberate brazen GOP sabotage efforts- both by refusing the Medicare expansion, and by destabilizing the insurance markets through Trump's threats, and the AHCA legislation.

    Every politician has made mistakes in office regardless of their respective party. When dealing with news networks, it's very hard to not look bad especially if the network naturally defaults to the beliefs of an opposing party. What matters here is that we have an example of a politician who did not give in to the partisan politics and sacrificed his own career to uphold his principles. That takes courage and deserves respect.

    America is finally on track again. Liberals almost destroyed the country/world. So many truths going to come out now, revealing Obama and Hillary as being traitors, thieves and murderers. 3 traits that sum up the Democratic Party in a nutshell.

    Trump personifies the death of the republican party. Go back to the drawing board, reject the Zionist program of the evangelicals (Billy Graham was an anti-Semite), solve the ME problems based on your principles and core values, expose party hypocrisy only then can there be a come back.

    He has been at least vocal. Thats something but not enough. Its a lot to ask but check on a persons voting record and let that be a part of your voting decision.

    If republicans want a good health care plan, why is one not presented? They do nothing but cut Obama's plan. Do they really think a health plan is going to magically appear? It comes down to this. They are all mouth but no action. They complain but refuse to present a plan. They should shut up and let someone who knows what they are doing be in office. They need to go and everyone would be happy. And promises from Trump was just that, promises.
