(Gateway Pundit) – Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) criticized attendees of President Trump’s political rallies Sunday, claiming they represent ‘spasms of a dying party.’
“When you look at some of the audiences cheering for Republicans, sometimes, you look out there and you say, ‘those are the spasms of a dying party,’ ” Flake told ABC’s “This Week.”
“When you look at the lack of diversity, sometimes, and it depends on where you are, obviously, but by and large, we’re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy,” Flake added.
Hollywood star and conservative firebrand James Woods blasted the outgoing lawmaker over his comments.
“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?”

Flake made headlines recently after cutting a check for Democrat Senate-elect Doug Jones. After making the political contribution, Flake taunted conservatives by tweeting “country over party”.
The Hill reports:
Flake, who has announced he will not seek reelection in 2018, has been a frequent critic of Trump, earning the president’s ire on Twitter.
The Arizona senator refused to back Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, calling him unfit for office. He wrote a $100 check to Democrat Doug Jones in the race, writing “Country over Party” in the memo line.
