Arizona Senator Jeff Flake dramatically announced his exit from the political life, confirming to the Arizona Republic that he will not longer run for re-election in 2018, thus joining his fellow RINO Senator Bob Corker.

After revealing his early retirement so to speak, Jeff Flake spoke on the Senate floor and he launched a very nasty attack on President Donald Trump’s administration, telling his fellow Senators that following Trump’s election, United States politics have become affected by the “reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior” coming from the White House.

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 institutions, the flagrant disregard for truth or decency, the reckless provocations, most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons, reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with the fortunes of the people that we have all been elected to serve.

Reckless, outrageous, and undignified behavior has become excused and countenanced as “telling it like it is,” when it is actually just reckless, outrageous, and undignified.

And when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else: It is dangerous to a democracy. Such behavior does not project strength — because our strength comes from our values. It instead projects a corruption of the spirit, and weakness.
