Jeff Flake

Scribe:  Samuel Otis



Senator Jeff Flake, garnered the world’s attention when he defied the sitting president by saying delaying opposition to the White House is complicit in wrong doing.

In a brave speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Flack said, “We must never adjust to the present coarseness of our national dialogue with the tone set up at the top.” He attacked Trump’s unusual behavior over the past nine months.  The Arizona Republican blasted the president for his untruthful behavior and lack of decency saying, “We must never regard as normal the regular and casual undermining of our democratic norms and ideals, we must never meekly accept the daily sundering of our country. The personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms and institution, the flagrant disregard for truth and decency.” 

He then turned to his fellow Republican Senators saying the conversations that are being had in private should be had in a public way and waiting is detrimental.  “Were the shoe on the other foot, would we Republicans meekly accept such behavior? Of course we wouldn’t.”  he continued, “It’s time for our complicity and accommodation to the unacceptable to end.”

The only other Senator, strong enough to stand against the sitting president is Tennessee Republican Bob Corker who has openly said that he doesn’t believe Trump is fit for office. 

Minutes later the befoul Sarah Huckabee Sanders bashfully pointed out the two senior senators state Poll numbers saying “I think that the people both in Tennessee and Arizona supported this president.” 

Trump’s mental fitness has come into question on a number of occasions supporting Corkers complaints and his morality is just a questionable witnessed by lies about Russian ties, lies about healthcare and of recent he attacked the wife of a fallen soldier. 

Onlookers suggest the consequences are not present for un-presidential behavior in the White House.
