CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, who famously tangled with President Donald Trump, is heading to Harvard University.

The Arizona Republican is among six new resident fellows who will join Harvard's Institute of Politics this fall.

Flake was one of Trump's most vocal GOP adversaries in the Senate before leaving the chamber in December after declining to seek reelection to a second term.

Flake repeatedly called out Trump, accusing him of "reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior" and saying the president's use of the terms "fake news" and "enemy of the people" smacked of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin's propaganda.

Harvard's other incoming fellows include LaTosha Brown, co-founder of the Black Voters Matter Fund; Bob Cohn, president of The Atlantic; and Isabel de Saint Malo de Alvarado, a former Panamanian vice president and foreign minister.

I sure hope he does not fall into the trap set by some colleges. As most people know our college system is very liberal and hate speech is on the rise. I did a Google search about hate speech and here is the link. https://www.google.com/search?q=colleges+spreading+hate&oq=colleges+spreading+hate&aqs=chrome..69i57.7026j1j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Yes, while the whole lot of the Republicans continue to turn a blind eye he was willing to call Trump on his complete disregard for ethics and morality. I don't think you will ever see any prestigious university ever solicit Trump or his clan for this type of honor.

One of the only principled republicans that dared to stand up for the American citizens. Good Luck Jeff!
