Lindsay Graham is not John McCain's friend and never was.

Lindsey Graham: White House should apologize for McCain remark

BY AVERY ANAPOL - 05/13/18 07:21 AM EDT

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that the White House should apologize for an aide’s derisive comment about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Graham told host Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” that he was not satisfied with how the Trump administration has responded to the remark.

“It's [a] pretty disgusting thing to say,” Graham said. “If it was a joke, it was a terrible joke. I just wish somebody from the White House would tell the country that was inappropriate, that's not who we are in the Trump administration.”.....“It doesn't hurt you at all to do the right thing and to be big,” he said. “[If] somebody in my office said such a thing about somebody, I would apologize on behalf of the office.”......Graham recently spent two days in Arizona with the 81-year-old senator, who is his closest friend in the Senate.


* If you are a true friend, you don't go play golf and have lunch with someone who trashes your friend.

1. "That's not who we are in the Trump administration"? Sorry, Senator.

That's exactly who they are in the Trump administration.

3. McCain voted for the Con

He said he always votes for the ReTHUG candidate. They're all birds of a feather.

5. What was the "joke"?

If it was a joke, that comment is the "punch line". I'm curious what the set up is that makes that a funny punchline?

My family has a rather sick sense of humor. And when my brother died prematurely, there was no small amount of grief covering with rather "inside" sick humor. We made comments that only a family member would understand the humor. But none of the humor was about the fact that the DID die. There was no "thank god he's dead" kind of humor.

My problem with the whole "joke" thing, is that it looks more like a cover up for getting caught actually saying what many people were thinking.
