Recently, following an episode of NPR’s This American Life on the Senator Jeff Flake’s attempt to pass a bill through Congress, I have decided to follow the man on Twitter.
The man is a United State’s Senator and provides a window into a congressman’s view on the world and day to day life.
Flake’s tweets mostly pertain to US politics, but also offer a personal insight into what he does for fun as well.
Recently the Senator made a speech to Congress condemning the President’s actions in perpetuating the “fake news” attack on journalism. In it he compares Trump’s assault on the media to Stalin’s, and blames him for third world Dictators adopting the technique. Coming from a Republican, the statements are hard hitting and poignant.
