Need proof that GOP officials are trying to avoid talking about President Donald Trump?

Usually, it's not hard to get any politician to come on cable news and deliver a set of talking points to push some agenda they're now working on (or just simple self-promotion since they're always raising money).

Fox News host Shepard Smith was unable to find a single Republican to appear on his show to defend President Trump's recent comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia that occurred during a recent rally for white supremacists.

They are already moving in this direction legislatively by ignoring most of his demands and requests, for example, to repeal Obamacare, and now they are reaching the level where they don't want to go on Fox News to defend him. "Let's be honest, Republicans often don't really mind coming on Fox News Channel", Smith said during his Wednesday broadcast.

"And of those that are condemning the president's condemnable actions, I've not heard any prominent leaders, former presidents, members of the House or the Senate use his name while speaking in generalities", Smith said. We need your help to create a database of such incidents across the country, so we all know what's going on.
