Pull Out Of Donald Trump Event; Last Unapologetic Birther!?
Senator Jeff Flake once again shows he's part of the problem. He keeps it up and he'll get another oval office trip...
Flake told The Washington Post he is calling on the Republican Party of Maricopa County to pull out of their sponsorship of a Trump campaign event on Saturday that will be attended by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Flake said Trump’s remarks were “ill-informed” and “not accurate,” and doesn’t believe Trump’s views are “reflective” of the GOP.
But beyond even that, Flake wanted to remind everyone that Trump “is just about the last unapologetic birther in the country.” [...] Mediaite.
This fury of attacks from the establishment against Trump stem from Trump's calls on Obama to release his records.
TRUMP/ARPAIO VENUE UPDATE:
Just in from Trump's office: "Due to the overwhelming response for Saturday's rally in Phoenix, Arizona the venue has been changed..."— Robert Costa (@costareports) July 10, 2015
"...to accommodate the thousands of people expected to attend and the event will now take place at the Phoenix Convention Center."— Robert Costa (@costareports) July 10, 2015
If Trump draws thousands, Bernie-style, in Phoenix on Sat. to an immig. rally, it'll say a lot about this GOP moment.— Robert Costa (@costareports) July 10, 2015
