Sen. Flake’s view way too timid

Jeff Flake’s view, “GOP must shed cult of Don­ald Trump (11/11/18)“struck me as odd. Mr. Flake was one of the more re­spectable Repub­li­cans be­fore that party be­gan to kow­tow to Mr. 5-Time De­fer­ment while fall­ing to their knees en masse ob­se­quiously.

Since Jan. 20, 2017, I’ve not seen, heard nor read of the GOP mak­ing any such move other than con­tin­u­ing to play hug­gie bear with The Man Who Wouldn’t Pay Homage to the WWI Amer­i­can soldiers at Bel­leau Wood due to an in­va­sion of rain.

Mr. Flake, you have got to be kid­ding! “Shed?” Re­ally? Would you ever ex­pect to see a news col­umn with the head­ing, “North Kore­ans must shed cult of Kim Jong-Un?” How about, “Rus­sians must shed cult of Vladimir Putin?” Had Mr. Flake writ­ten “Leop­ards must shed their hered­ity spots” I would have given his thoughts more con­sid­er­a­tion.
