Laura Ingraham: Jeff Flake ‘Sounded Like an Out-Of-Touch Narcissist’ For Delaying Kavanaugh Vote

On Friday night, Laura Ingraham had some harsh criticisms for Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) for helping delay the Kavanaugh vote.

Before the Senate Judiciary Committee voted on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Flake was confronted by angry protestors who identified themselves as sexual assault survivors. Flake ultimately voted in favor of Kavanaugh, but called for a one-week delay for the FBI to conduct an investigation into the allegation made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. President Donald Trump ordered an investigation.

Ingraham blasted Flake’s handling of those protestors, saying he looked like he “couldn’t stand the heat” and was convinced that the altercation shifted his position on Kavanaugh.

Former Trump campaign staffer David Bossie said it feels that Flake got “bullied” by those protestors as well as by Senate Democrats.

The Fox News host insisted that Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) pushed Flake into calling for the FBI investigation and now the Democrat wants to widen the scope of the investigation.

“So this was a big ruse,” Ingraham reacted. “It’s not about Dr. Ford. It’s about digging up new dirt or doing whatever it is they do over there to get people to come forward 36 years later.”

Then she let Flake have it.

“I’m sorry, but I thought Jeff Flake sounded like an out-of-touch narcissist today with these comments,” Ingraham said. “Like, ‘I’m Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, I’m going to save the whole process.’ The process was polluted by an uncorroborated allegation being used to smear a man who’s been in public life for almost three decades. So Jeff Flake, sorry, you’re a little late for that one.”
