Lindsey Graham has never been a leader or a man with convictions. He’s a spineless coward who has the great fortune of being a United States Senator representing one of the least educated and most backward states in the nation.
Graham spent the bulk of his career following Senator John McCain, a man with actual principles. A man Donald Trump hated and said was only a war hero because he was captured. Graham was one of the umpteen candidates in the 2016 GOP primary and at the time, he said the best way to make America great again was by telling Donald Trump to “go to Hell.” After the election and the death of John McCain, Graham did a 180 and crawled up Donald Trump’s ass. Good thing it was an ample ass because it needed room for other former Never Trumpers like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul among others.
After Trump ordered white nationalists to storm the Capitol and overturn the 2020 election to make him an Oompa-Loompa fascist dictator, Lindsey chastised Trump and said he was done with the man. After being booed in an airport, Lindsey turned around and crawled right back up Trump’s ass followed swiftly by Kevin McCarthy who had also chastised Trump.
When the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago for documents Trump stole from the federal government, Lindsey warned there would be “riots in the streets” if Trump is prosecuted and not allowed to break the law as he wishes.
In 2016, after Republicans said a president can’t fill a Supreme Court seat during an election year, a baseless argument to deny President Obama to fill the seat vacated by the death of Antonin Scalia, and so they could steal the seat for Donald Trump to fill, Lindsey Graham said that rule will apply during any election year, no matter who is the president at the time.
Lindsey said, “I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said, ‘Let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.’ And you could use my words against me and you’d be absolutely right.”
After Ruth Bader Ginsburg died in 2020, an election year, Lindsey, then the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, rushed through the confirmation of Trump appointee Amy Coney Barrett in the span of two months. Lindsey didn’t stand by his word because he doesn’t have principles. He’s a liar.
Republicans lied about the rules on filling Supreme Court seats. People need to pay attention because lying is their nature. When they say abortion should be a state issue, they’re lying. But sometimes one of the idiots says the quiet part out loud.
Now, Lindsey Graham wants to crawl out of Donald Trump’s ass and into your uterus, which would be the first time he’s ever touched a woman.
Lindsey Graham is proposing a NATIONWIDE ban on abortion after 15 weeks. The rest of the GOP is hemming and hawing that it’s a state rights issue, and Congress shouldn’t have any say over abortion. But they’re lying. Lindsey just said the quiet part out loud which they don’t want mentioned before the midterm elections. I promise you this: Even if the GOP only takes the House, there will still be a lot of talk from them about banning abortion nationwide.
Take Virginia’s governor, Glenn Youngkin, for example. During his campaign for the governorship, he only wanted to talk about President Biden sending the FBI to attack parents who didn’t want teachers making their white kids feel glum by teaching about slavery. He dodged questions about abortion. After the Supreme Court gave states the right to ban abortion, Youngkin turned around faster than Lindsey can crawl up Trump’s ass with a “free mint juleps” sign over it, and said he’ll sign any abortion restriction law the General Assembly sends to his desk.
If Republicans take back Congress, it won’t just be Lindsey Graham trying to ban abortion nationwide. It will be the majority of them. They will ban abortion nationwide. Even the ones who are pro-choice, like Susan Collins, are dumb enough to be tricked into voting to ban abortion. If Republicans get their way, they’ll get rid of Obamacare, gay marriage, mixed-race marriage, voting rights, and maybe even bring back slavery and indentured servants. That’s their idea of making America great again.
If you really want to make America great again, vote and tell Lindsey Graham and all the anti-freedom and MAGA fascists Republicans to go to Hell.
