Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in a recent interview that he hopes somebody runs against President Trump in the 2020 election, and that Trump supporters' continued chants of "lock her up" typically in reference to Hillary Clinton are "disturbing."
In his retirement interview with C-SPAN, Flake said the chants, which were sparked by Trump's campaign and have continued throughout his presidency, are more concerning than the controversial things Trump says.
"The disturbing thing isnt so much what [Trump] says anymore, its the cheers from people behind him and the chants of, 'Lock her up!' for example thats just unseemly," Flake said. "It does make me fear that it's going to be a longer process to get out of this than it should be."
While the signature chant often heard at Trump's campaign rallies has been reserved for Clinton, at the president's rally in Iowa on Tuesday night, Trump mentioned Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., asking the crowd: "How about Senator Feinstein? That's another beauty."

Not many would accept their party invitations.
Not a bad idea.. gives the moderate democrats somewhere to go..
splitting the democrat votes..
I like your thinking :)
rood riddance, dickhead. mcsally has bugger cajones that you, tinker bell.
Said from a dolt who has no future in any party. What a jackass. He fears for the future of the GOP when while in office he refused to defend it? Jeff, flake off and GFU.
*bigger. iOS autocorrect fascists.
They can both go join the demonrats.They already vote like ‘em.
Flake has always been flaky. He cannot see that there is a wide range of humor which is o.k., even if he doesn’t like it. He is prissy where it dosn’t matter. God save the Country from prissy wimps.
He comments on Trump & Americans...but no comment on Feinstein and her Chinese spy. Coward.
Don't forget Jeb Bush!,
Soon to be just Ex Senator Flake.
Flake shouldn’t worry, Hillary is still walking free.
This Delta-bag’s 15 minute of fame are just about up.
...”It does make me fear that it’s going to be a longer process to get out of this than it should be.”...
What is Flakes definition of “this?”
Since when do you go looking to “get out of” doing the right thing? Fighting evil and injustice? Protecting the constitution and the country?
I can only assume it means getting back to the corrupt uni-party of a GOPE?
This senator needs to be out.
“String her up” is disturbing. “Lock her up” is a much milder alternate outcome that most would be thrilled with.
The Demonrats are able to get away with massive abuse of the DOJ/FBI and political violence against conservative because of the GOP is led by wimps & Flacks....
well it’s too late to lock up his butt brother John McCain who also encouraged the IRS to single out the TEA Party and trumped up the pee pee video dossier.
Geez, he just won’t shut the hell up.
He’s on his way out because he knows he can’t win an election to rat catcher and he has to pull this crap everyday?
What a sick, mentally unstable idiot.
Drama queen whiner complaining “no one likes me”.
Yet Jeffie keeps voting for all these judges this week. such a phony
