In 2015 Senator Lindsey Graham saw Trump as a laughable flash in the pan. However, it is on record he publicly said at thee time, “There’s only one way to make America great again,” he said. “Tell Donald Trump to go to hell.” He called for Trump to drop out of the race after the Access Hollywood tape where he famously admitted the sexual assault of women by “grabbing them by the pussy” was possible because he was a celebrity and they ” will let you do it.” Graham has now developed a legacy of flip–flopping in a desperate attempt to please Trump. The mystery to those who knew the old Lindsey Graham is, “Why”?
In a January 2021 article in Mother Jones by Sam Pykeren, President Obama says, “Lindsey’s the guy who double-crosses everyone to save his skin.” After Biden won the election, ” Graham was a supporter of the ” big lie” saying there was widespread fraud.” Then after the insurrection, he stood on the Senate floor and said, ” Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected.” Graham has been hypocritical in the past, before his stint as Trump’s chief boot-licker. However, his sociopathic-style pattern of lying and hypocrisy has become a legend in Washington politics. History will mock the embarrassing, obsequious Lindsey who flagrantly threw facts, democracy, and morality under the bus for Trump’s approval. Here is a partial greatest hits list of Lindsey Graham’s hypocrisy and fall from integrity;
Graham has gone from blaming Trump for not helping stop the insurrection to hoping he becomes president again. It makes one wonder if the rumors about Graham are true, and he fears the vengeful, disloyal Trump would turn the religious-right electorate against him. Opportunism equals corruption.
