Have you ever been questioning what’s subsequent for retired Senator Jeff Flake? In accordance with the Hollywood Reporter, Flake was noticed at CBS Information in Manhattan the place he’s being thought-about for an unknown position on the community.
After retiring from the U.S. Senate final week, Jeff Flake remains to be in search of his “subsequent factor.” It would simply be at CBS Information, which has engaged in talks with the Arizona Republican a couple of position on the community, The Hollywood Reporter has discovered.
Flake, who emerged as one in every of President Trump’s largest critics and would possibly problem him for the occasion nomination in 2020, was noticed on the community’s Manhattan headquarters final Friday.
Flake may serve in the usual position for ex-politicians, as an on-air contributor — or as one thing extra, in accordance with knowledgable sources.
The truth that Flake is greatest recognized for his opposition to Trump makes him an ideal choose for CBS. He’s the type of Republican who will work on a left-leaning community the identical approach Joe Scarborough works on MSNBC, i.e. by solely often sounding mildly conservative however largely simply harping on Trump. I don’t know in the event that they’ll give him a present. I think that might be a bit an excessive amount of Flake for the viewers to take, however as a CBS contributor, he can fill the Ana Navarro position of claiming he’s a Republican whereas spending most of his time bashing Trump.
Actually, I’m unsure Flake is reduce out to be a commentator both. It is a man who voted to verify Decide Kavanaugh after which went on TV two weeks later and stated he nonetheless wasn’t positive if he believed the Decide’s model of occasions or that of Dr. Ford. That’s a stage of uncertainty that will not make for riveting tv. Plus, everybody at CBS is aware of that each one you need to do to vary his thoughts is scream at him whereas he’s getting on the elevator.
Flake reportedly met with CNN and MSNBC about six months in the past to speak a couple of future profession as a cable contributor. For his half, President Trump predicted final week that Flake would find yourself at CNN.
