During yesterday’s Supreme Court nomination hearing, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake used his time to question Judge Neil Gorsuch about fighting a “horse-sized duck” and whether he’s worn “gym shorts and a tank top under [his] robe.“ Yes, really.
This comes after Flake previously said that most of what Senators do during confirmation hearings is “bloviate.” Yes, really.
“Jeff Flake is disgracing his office and the people of Arizona by using his opportunity to question Supreme Court nominee for jokes too dumb for a college dorm. Senator Flake, instead of joking that you and your colleagues just ‘bloviate,’ maybe you should focus on doing your homework and asking Neil Gorsuch the tough questions Arizonans expect from their Senator,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler.
Here are just some of the headlines highlighting how Flake embarrassed himself:
