Welp, they say all good things must come to an end, and after its week-long dominance of the trending on Twitter top spot #MoscowMitch is giving way to the richly deserved moniker #LeningradLindsey.

Though Graham has been working hard to earn this designation, completely reversing course and pledging fealty to TsarevichTrump after a round of golf during which only FSM knows what sort of kompromat was discussed, he really cemented his hold on the title yesterday when he advanced his master’s white nationalist (read Russian) agenda by breaking four rules of the Senate, shutting down Democrat’s right to speak before calling for a vote to pass a bill authorizing the continued kidnapping of migrant children at the border.

The Hill

“The hashtag “LeningradLindsey” trended on Twitter Thursday after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) forced a controversial asylum bill through committee.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced a bill to overhaul U.S. asylum laws, waiving committee rules to force the bill through to the full Senate, where it likely won’t get the 60 votes it needs to pass.

But Graham’s move to push the bill through the panel outraged Democrats who say the South Carolina senator broke the rules on how lawmakers take up legislation in order to move a partisan bill along.

Hundreds started using the hashtag invoking Leningrad — the Soviet-era name of the Russian city of St. Petersburg — slamming Graham for the move.”

Senator Patrick Leahy was causally vocal on this flagrant violation of prototypical.

And so a hashtag was born.

So, who will be next?

With all the Russia rigging going down in Florida, I’m betting on #RostovRubio
