"No better way to enjoy ’s farewell address than in the warm embrace of his meaningless tweets," the photo's caption reads. 

The blanket includes tweets from Flake asking, "Come on, Republicans. Is this who we are? This cannot be who we are." Another all-caps tweet reads, "THIS IS NO WAY TO TREAT OUR ALLIES, MR. PRESIDENT." 
 
The Daily Show replied to Flake's inquiry by writing, "We take this request very seriously and will do everything in our power to talk about sending you one."

Flake used his formal goodbye speech on Thursday to warn that the U.S. political climate "is not healthy."

"I believe that we all know well that this is not a normal time, that the threats to our democracy from within and without are real, and none of us can say with confidence how the situation that we now find ourselves in will turn out," Flake said from the Senate floor.
