Arizona Senator Jeff Flake — who has been a harsh critic of Trump since actually before he was elected (one of the very few) — has announced that he will be retiring from the Senate. He was up for re-election next year, and the polls numbers for him were not good, in large part because of his opposition to Trump. Democrats didn’t like him because he’s a Republicans, and too many Republicans didn’t like him because he wasn’t on Team Trump.

In his retirement announcement, Flaked torched Donald Trump from the floor of the Senate.

He’s attacking his colleagues in Congress as much as as he is attacking Trump.

He is not wrong, and I’d really really like to believe that Flake, Corker, and McCain’s criticism of Trump will mean something. But, you know:

This, on the other hand, I do still believe.

I just hope Trump doesn’t end the world before that spell breaks.

If you are a Republican, but not a Trump Republican, I feel for you today.
