Senators Flake, Corker To Exit Trump's Party
Written by: Colin Bruce Munro Wood - 6:48 AM EST - 10/25/2017
The #Senatefloor was filled with fireworks Tuesday the 24th of October. With Halloween approaching quickly, Republican Senator Jeff Flake, of Arizona, held the floor for a total of 45 minutes to become the next goblin seeking to escape Trump's cobweb of deceit and #demagoguery.
Flake and Corker retiring with gusto!
#Flake joined his fellow Senator #Corker by presenting his same plan to retire and not seek re-election. Sen. Jeff Flake used his time on the Senate floor to tear down President Donald J. Trump in front of America on C-Span, and his Republican and Democratic cohorts.
With 14 months left in both their tenures, they still have to deal with #PresidentTrump but set the stage for showdowns in the near future. In speaking of Trump's character, Flake stated on the Senate floor that he maintains a "flagrant disregard for truth and decency". He feels that Trump is #undercutting the American Democracy.
Senator Jeff Flake continued his tirade on Trump stating that Trump's speech on Twitter and in public "threatens to turn America and the #GOP into a fearful, backward-looking people", and a "fearful backward-looking party". Of course, he didn't mention Trump's name specifically, but the nation listened and knew exactly who he spoke of.

#Senator Robert Corker, who has been having steady run-ins with President Trump took to CNN and the airwaves to continue his fight and spent most of his time in an interview ripping into Trump's presidency. Trump's "liddle" Bob Corker, as he spelled it on Twitter, caused a huge upheaval on social media, as everyone argued over whether he spelled it wrong on purpose, or not, and whether Senator Corker took it to heart.
On #CNNworldnews Tuesday morning, Corker stated that Trump "debases" America and was unable to say whether he trusted him with the nuclear codes. he added in an interview with #ManuRaju that our President has "great difficulty with the truth". Robert Corker added in statements that, "When his term is over, I think the debasing of our nation, the constant non-truth-telling, and the - just the name-calling, the things that I think, the debasement of our nation is what we will be remembered most important, and that's regretful."
Is the Republican Party imploding?
It seems lately that the Republicans in Congress are beginning to implode, and their seats may be in great jeopardy in the next #election.
I wonder, what are we to do with a leader that is disliked, possibly even hated by his own political party, and is still holding office without being ousted or relinquishing his position. Even with calls for #impeachment surrounding our nation's capital, Trump holds strong in the storm.
This morning on CNN, Senator Flake stated, "privately, a number of my colleagues have expressed concern about the direction of our politics and the behavior of the President".
It seems that America is hitting an important point in our History. Time has shown us that there have been too many mistakes in our growth as a nation, and most leaders are coming to the realization, with the prowess of Trump, that it is time for a change.
Contrary to liberal Democrat's beliefs, some Republican's are showing heart lately, and President Trump's recklessness is pushing the Democrats back into the spotlight, and strengthening their future run in the next Presidential #election2020.
Where does America go from here?

What do we do as a nation about our anarchist in charge? Calling your Senators and Representatives to voice your opinions is always a first stepping-stone in getting your voice heard. Sharing your opinions with your friends and on #social media would be another force to be reckoned with over the next 3 years, for Trump.
We can also demand action in Congress to impeach this President. The original intent of the #25th amendment was exactly drawn up to defend our nation against such tyrannical leadership as we have now.
#AlisonCammarota asked Senator Flake this morning if other Republicans will follow suit. He said that he felt more of his fellow Congressman will begin to step out against this President.
President Trump replied in a tweet this morning, "Jeff Flake, with an 18% approval rating in Arizona, said "a lot of my colleagues have spoken out." Really, they just gave me a standing O!"
Once again, using improper English and grammar, Trump, laughingly, tried to defend himself.
As a nation, the majority of us can only hope that #RobertMueller is putting together a dandy of a case against Trump and that we will only have to deal with this insanity in our #WhiteHouse for just a little longer.
We, American citizens, must do our part in helping #Congress gain the momentum to oust our President before he is charged by Mueller. It would be an ugly stain on our nation if he were to remain in charge when the charges and the truth come out.
So, make your calls, spread your messages, and don't give up in the newly freshened drive to clean out our White House. Join Republicans and Democrats and put #America back at the top of the list of respected countries.
