Continuing to bask in the liberal media accolades ahead of Wednesday’s anti-Trump speech, Republican Senator Jeff Flake (Ariz.) appeared on the CNN International and PBS show Amanpour, making nice with host Christiane Amanpour to defend liberal journalists and compare President Trump to murderous Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.
