So many shocking events occurred during the course of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination process. Despite the multitude of sexual assault allegations and blatant lies under oath by Kavanaugh, one of the most surprising developments is the unhinged and explosive antics of Senator Lindsey Graham. He was once known as a strong opponent of Donald Trump, even tweeting during the Republican presidential primary in 2016, “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.”
Palmer Report has documented Graham’s peculiar journey from one of the most anti-Trump Republican senators to a full-blown Trump apologist and fan. While the reasoning for this flip-flop has been debated by political pundits, there has yet to be a definitive reason identified. One hypothesis is that such an unabashed partisan reversal could only be attributed to either blackmail or the promise of money or power. With Graham’s recent statements approving of Trump possibly firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions following the midterm elections, many have assumed that Graham is hoping to take Sessions’ job in the near future.
This theory was debunked by Palmer Report, explaining why it would be ludicrous for Graham to give up possible decades of future Senatorial reign to assume the AG position for possibly only a few months. During a recent interview with Fox News Sunday, Graham made a strange comment. When asked about his golfing plans with Trump, Graham made the outrageous remark that “This third term thing is looking better and better.”
As part of his celebratory nonsense, Lindsey Graham stated, “If you want to pick judges, then you need to win the White House.” While Graham’s comments are clearly going to upset most liberals, it is important to remember that he has been in lockstep with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s policies this entire time.
