Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” Meghan McCain co-host said Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) announcement that he would not be seeking re-election is a “big win” former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
McCain said, “Steve Bannon this is a big win and success for him because he said he’s out for scalps with establishment Republicans and this is a big scalp for him. Jeff Flake, my home state is Arizona, my parents are good friends with him, he is a truly decent man. He was an ardent anti-Trumper.”
She continued, “Conservative media is thrilled over this. I saw a lot of things being said last night about how this speech could have been like Nancy Pelosi. It’s this lens into what’s happening in the Republican party. There’s a very very intense ideological divide about the Reaganesque people of the past and the Trump populists of the future.”
She added, “This is a big win for President Trump. It’s a big win for Steve Bannon.”
