Graham asked about "reexamining certain absentee ballots cast in Georgia in order to explore the possibility of a more favorable outcome for former President Donald Trump,” 

Witch hunt! Fake news! Corrupt and weaponized “Feds”! Nothing illegal!! Distraction from gas prices! And what about Hunter’s laptop?

Just thought I’d save our Trump supporters some time.

Sen. Lindsey Graham can't put off his appearance before a special grand jury investigating 

Graham might be one of a handful of US politicians that rival Trump for being dishonest. He is another establishment Trump Republican who believes he is above the law, and cares little if anything about the country. Like Trump and others in the Trump cult Graham is so me-centric he cannot recognize much beyond his need to maintain his personal wealth and power.

Whatever happened to the "just comply" with the police trope that the GOP politicians and media usually trot out. Just comply, Lindsay. If you have done no wrong, then you should fear testifying.

Graham also “made reference to allegations of widespread voter fraud in the November 2020 election in Georgia, consistent with public statements made by known affiliates of the Trump Campaign," she wrote.

Graham, McConnell , Cruz, former Trump critics turned enablers are truly a shameless bunch.

Utter wastes of space on the American political stage.

There are a lot more that are dishonest, not just around Trump. Take your pick.

He is another establishment Trump

Republican who believes he is above the law,

He doesn’t believe that, he’s not a Democrat, but he’s not a punk and refuses to let these people push him around and good on him for doing that.

and cares little if anything about the country.

No, he fought for our country, he cares, but sadly, he is a part of the swamp, not the worst, but definitely more establishment, but hating the country? Not even close.

Like Trump and others in the Trump cult Graham is so me-centric he cannot recognize much beyond his need to maintain his personal wealth and power.

Well, that is not remotely close, I do appreciate Lindsey for not putting up and fighting with the radicals progressive socialist failing policies this administration is failing to implement around the country.

Should have listened to your own words Lindsey...."We should have kicked Trump out of the Republican Party", "I don't believe that Donald Trump has the temperament and judgment to be commander in chief." "I think Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I'm not going with him."

Well, you certainly flipped on all those comments..and what did it get you? A subpoena and possible charges of obstructing an election...

Just one more Repub that traded his integrity (if he had any), reputation, and now possible freedom to be buddies with The Donald...

Maybe you both can commiserate in the same cell at Club Fed...

“Well that is not remotely close”

Biden just signed a $700 billion bill and there is more on the way. You won’t like it of course, but that doesn’t matter.

Yup

but that doesn’t matter.

No, I got money, so it doesn’t matter, but to the average American, it doesn’t matter. But good, it helps the Republicans. After November, the spending stops!

If only there were any reality to this outside of Republican rhetoric and Fox sound bites.

refuses to let these people push him around and good on him for doing that.

How is answering some questions being pushed around? Or do you think Graham has something to hide?

Again, “sticking it to the libs” is the only doctrine of Cult 45.

If only there were any reality to this outside of Republican rhetoric and Fox sound bites.

The fact that the left thinks that continues to propel the Republicans to newer heights this November.

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

The ability of individuals with money to endlessly make appeals is a key failure of the American justice system...

Preaching personal responsibility to others is one thing. Living up to it is something else entirely. Am I right, Lindsey?

“I do declare!” exclaimed Lindsey before it grasped its pearls and retired to its fainting couch with a mint jullip.

I, a Democratic leaning voter, miss John McCain every day and yet in a way, I’m glad he’s not alive to discover what has become of you, Lindsey.

You're an embarrassment to his memory and he would be ashamed of what you have become.

No more than your average Washington politician

We should just accept radical progressive ideology? Yeah, ok…lol

Yeah, still not sounding like Socrates.

Given its well-documented history of being wrong and just plain ignorant of basic facts, I think Silly B has proven to be worthy of being politely ignored, much like the tottering uncle at the family gathering.

Removing lead pipes from school drinking fountains.

Access to internet in all areas.

Creating millions of jobs.

Replacing decaying bridges.

Oh the horror!

Sir, pray tell, could you tell me more of this "radical progressive ideology" you speak of?

What exactly does it entail?

Yeah, still not sounding like Socrates. 

Given its well-documented history of being wrong and just plain ignorant of basic facts,

summing up most of the liberal sycophants.

I think Silly B has proven to be worthy of being politely ignored,

Because you guys say so? No, we all have the right to politically opine.

Removing lead pipes from school drinking fountains.

Not happening on a broad basis

Access to internet in all areas.

Not happening and we can use a speed faster than 96.9 Mbps.

Creating millions of jobs.

Depends on which industry to a certain point, but most of the jobs were jobs where people got laid off or took off because of covid.

Replacing decaying bridges. 

Still not happening and we have over

45,023 of the country’s 618,422 bridges, or approximately 7.3%, are rated “structurally deficient”

You know what’s despicable? Lindsey Graham refusing to testify to a Georgia grand jury about Trump’s crimes while simultaneously bleating about how DOJ must be transparent & unseal the search warrant affidavit so we can see all the evidence of Trump’s crimes.

Lindsey said in 2015, if we nominate trump, it will destroy us and we deserve it.

You deserve every day of jail time that’s coming for you lindsey, so does the man you sold your soul to!

I hope for lindsey that FBI can get whatever donald is using to blackmail him.

Nothing can be worse than his humiliating genuflecting to the man he obviously hates!

5 ( +5 / -0 )

What exactly does it entail?

Besides: wokeness, income redistribution, indoctrination of using preferred pronouns, increasing the power of federal government, less empowerment to the individual, indoctrination of our children with radical leftist socialist ideology, making people more dependent on government just the tip of the Iceberg…

Lindsey said in 2015, if we nominate trump, it will destroy us and we deserve it.

I felt like that in the beginning as well, boy I learned the error of my ways

You deserve every day of jail time that’s coming for you lindsey, so does the man you sold your soul to!

That’s just not going to happen

I actually think the old Lindsay Graham is still in there somewhere psychologically walled off by his sheer terror of Trumps psycho whack job base.

i don’t think anything we see out of him is real. He has to act preemptively to keep from being burned at the stake for disloyalty

Graham is one of the biggest bootlickers and sycophants of all times, and an absolute coward to boot.

Wokeness: Politeness to marginalized groups?

Income redistribution: Happened under Trump's corporate welfare and tax cuts for the rich.

Indoctrination of our children with radical leftist socialist ideology: Where and what is it?

Making people more dependent on government : Thank dog Trump worked to create a government no one could depend on except his corporate cronies.

And assembled a rogues gallery of billionaire robber barons from DeVos, Ross, Mnuchin to administer it.

No wonder so many are turning to the "radical leftist socialist ideology" despite the best efforts of corporate shill propagandists.

Wokeness: Politeness to marginalized groups?

Indoctrination towards anyone that the left don’t feel good about.

Income redistribution: Happened under Trump's corporate welfare and tax cuts for the rich. 

Not to the average American. Again, look at the polls 77% of the country think this administration is going in the wrong direction, especially when it comes to their money.

Indoctrination of our children with radical leftist socialist ideology: Where and what is it?

Every liberal state, that’s why more and more people are taking their kids out of public schools.

Making people more dependent on government : Thank dog Trump worked to create a government no one could depend on except his corporate cronies.

No, we were becoming more independent and there was a boom in small business growth and this administration basically put what was the backbone of American independence out of business, more government, less freedom. 

And assembled a rogues gallery of billionaire robber barons from DeVos, Ross, Mnuchin to administer it. 

And look who runs the country? Big tech, China and the richest Hollywood elites that push for liberal causes

No wonder so many are turning to the "radical leftist socialist ideology"

Yeah, then the Dems would be keeping the House. ROFL

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

glad he has to testify so that he will remember this treatment when Repubs are back in power.

He is always the first one to go super soft and start believing Dems want to be friends when they don’t

-8 ( +0 / -8 )

Your President Trump promised to fix the crumbling infrastructure with dangerous roads and 35,000 decaying bridges.

Yes, kinda hard when you’re not in office, but like the left try to keep telling us, Biden won and now he had enough money to allocate to start the reconstruction of faulty and old infrastructure and now what? They won’t even fix the wall, so if anyone thinks these people would fix our infrastructure is just mental. Being woke is a bigger priority or trying to get Lindsey.
