You are invoking requests.get() in a Python program (after an "import requests" statement near the top of your code). You want to pass the equivalent of "-X DELETE" in curl in your Python program. How do you use the DELETE option with a REST API call in Python?
This assumes you have "requests" installed (e.g., sudo pip install requests). If you need assistance installing pip, see this link for Debian/Ubuntu, this link for a Linux SUSE server, and this link for CentOS/RHEL/Fedora.
Use requests.delete() in your code. This external page http://docs.python-requests.org/en/master/user/quickstart/ used to have more information.
