Kelli Ward, who is running for Jeff Flake's Senate seat this year, slammed Flake in a tweet saying his comparison of the president is an embarrassment to Arizona.

Ward called out other Arizona Senate candidates to join her in condemning Senator Flake.

The Republican National Committee also responded in a tweet saying the news is "wall-to-wall with biased coverage" against the president, and that "he has every right to push back. Comparing the leader of the free world to murderous dictators is absurd" and goes "too far."
