[Ed. – Now there’s a (bleeping) surprise.]
After retiring from the U.S. Senate last week, Jeff Flake is still looking for his “next thing.” It might just be at CBS News, which has engaged in talks with the Arizona Republican about a role at the network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Flake, who emerged as one of President Donald Trump’s biggest critics and might challenge him for the party nomination in 2020, was spotted last Friday at the network’s Manhattan headquarters. …
Even the president played into the rumor mill on Wednesday, suggesting during a cabinet meeting in the White House that Flake will “probably go to work for CNN. That’s my prediction.” (A CNN spokesperson said the network wouldn’t comment on such speculation.)
