Outgoing GOP Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday morning on ABC’s “This Week” that President Donald Trump is using tactics toward the media that were made popular by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

He said he plans to expound further on that thesis during a speech delivered to the Senate in the coming week.

Michelle Malkin believes this comparison from Flake is his audition for a role in the same media that Trump has decried.

Flake’s speech is scheduled to be on the same day that Trump is going to deliver the fake news media awards.

What are the odds that Flake becomes a late nominee for one of those awards from the president?
