What the hell happened to Lindsey Graham? His 180 degree spin with respect to Donald Trump would do justice to the best alien mind control techniques in the world of science fiction. Graham is a convert to the Cult of Trump, and this is where he started out.
“I want to talk to the Trump supporters for a minute. I don’t know who you are and I don’t know why you like this guy. I think what you like about him is that he appears to be strong and the rest of us are weak. He’s a very successful businessman and he’s going to make everything great. He’s gonna take all the problems of the world and put ’em in a box and make your life better. That’s what he’s selling. Here’s what you’re buying. He’s a race baiting, xenophobic religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values of the men and women in uniform. He’s the ISIL Man of the Year.”
“What Mr. Trump is doing, and I don’t think he has a clue about anything, he’s just trying to get his numbers up and get the biggest reaction he can, he’s putting our soldiers and diplomats at risk, he’s empowering the enemy, and this ban, if it’s actually enacted, would take people who are interpreters, who came to our side in Iraq and Afghanistan and who are under siege in their own countries and [it] basically becomes a death sentence for them.”
Very powerful and to the point. So what happened? Because this is where Graham is nowadays, when asked by reporters to comment on the “Send her back!” chant at the North Carolina rally last week.
Here’s what think: I think the President is playing on the 1968 ‘Love it or Leave it,’” Graham said, referring a late 1960s slogan that targeted Vietnam war protesters. “I’ve said before that if you’re a Somali refugee wearing a MAGA hat, he doesn’t want to send you back. You’d probably have dinner at the White House.”
“The President believes that what they’re doing is over the top,” Graham continued. “We’re not running concentration camps. So when you start accusing people of running concentration camps who work for the United States government, you’re gonna be met with some pretty fiery responses.”
