(National Sentinel) Establishment: Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake took his party and supporters of President Donald J. Trump to task this week, only to be publicly shamed and corrected on Twitter by actor James Woods.
The Arizona Republican, who announced earlier this year he wouldn’t seek reelection, spoke onÂ ABC‘s “This Week” regarding the type of people who generally attend Trump political rallies.
Flake suggested that the Republican Party must begin attracting additional demographics besides “older white men” or face obsolescence.
â€œWhen you look at some of the audiences cheering for Republicans, sometimes, you look out there and you say, â€˜those are the spasms of a dying party,’â€ the outgoing senator said, according to The Hill.
â€œWhen you look at the lack of diversity, sometimes, and it depends on where you are, obviously, but by and large, weâ€™re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy,” he added.
Woods, who has amassed a large Twitter audience for his conservative punditry, corrected the retiring senator.
You mean the party that has the Presidency, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the majority of State Legislatures, the majority of State Governors, and is poised the steamroll over the broke Democrats in 2018, 2020, and 2024? You mean THAT dying party? #NumbskullJeffFlake? https://t.co/TULfAGEvMz

In reality, the actor is correct. At present the GOP is enjoying its most powerful standing in the party’s history, as it controls both congressional chambers, the White House, a majority of governorships and state legislatures.
Also, Republican dominance has led to a conservative/constitutionalist majority on the U.S. Supreme Court, while Trump’s picks for open judiciary seats continues to shift the federal bench in that direction.
Trump’s victory also defied nearly every projection in the mainstream media and polling circles.
As for Flake, he has become one of the president’s biggest critics. He chose not to seek reelection earlier this year after internal polling showed him deeply unpopular with Arizona voters.
