He shamed the President over his anti-free press language, and even compared him to Joseph Stalin, the late dictator of the USSR!

In his impassioned speech, Flake expressed:

“Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Joseph Stalin to describe his enemies. It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase ‘enemy of the people,’ that even Nikita Khrushchev forbade its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin for the purpose of ‘annihilating such individuals’ who disagreed with the supreme leader. This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially for those of us in the president’s party. For they are shameful, repulsive statements.”

He later continued:

“Now, we are told via Twitter that today the president intends to announce his choice for the ‘most corrupt and dishonest’ media awards. It beggars belief that an American president would engage in such a spectacle. But here we are.”

And called for an end to the attacks on the media:

“We are a mature democracy ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ it is well past time that we stop excusing or ignoring ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ or worse, endorsing — these attacks on the truth. For if we compromise the truth for the sake of our politics, we are lost.”
