“Count me out”: The hypocrisy of Graham’s break with Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham is a politician. He’s charming and seems sincere and on the level, so it’s easy to forget that.

He’s been close to President Trump for years now. And he used Trump’s supporters to help himself get reelected easily in South Carolina. But now, even after hanging out with Trump the last several weeks, he’s jumping ship.

“If you’re a conservative, this is the most offensive concept in the world, that a single person could disenfranchise 155 million people,” Graham said.

Following the riots at the Capitol, Graham said Trump had had a “consequential” term, “but today … count me out.”

Remember, this is the guy who used to be attached at the hip to John McCain, a man who was Trump’s polar opposite in every way. And he’s the guy who said he would never consider a Supreme Court nominee during a presidential election year, and then did.

Lindsey got some grief for it today. Bad language alert. And I don’t mean the grammar.

  1. Tremendously disappointed with Tim Scott, always thought Lindsay was a far weather friend. Nikki Haley is another opportunist riding Trump’s coattails but when it’s time to count on her, she’s no where to be seen. Gutless cowards.

  2. Sen. Graham helped give the radical Democrats the power, he said “byGod,” he hoped they would never get. The 75 million of us Trump supporters curse you Lindsey, along with the cowardly Judges that were appointed and championed by Trump. All of you who rode President Trump’s coattails to success will not be forgotten, or forgiven. There will be a reckoning.

  3. Lindsey Graham has always been a poser who checks the prevailing winds before making a decision. Read Tucker Carlson’s book “Ship of Fools,” which spells out Graham’s hypocrisy. Graham’s friendship with the saintly martyr John McCain should have been a warning sign for Trump and others.
