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."
