Lindsey Graham: 'Going Low' Would Be 'A Step Up' for Dems, They're in the Gutter After Kavanaugh


Lindsey Graham: ‘Going Low’ Would Be ‘A Step Up’ for Democrats, They’re in the Gutter After Kavanaugh

by Tamar Auber | Oct 10th, 2018, 8:40 pm

Speaking to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham responded to former Attorney General Eric Holder‘s claim that former First Lady Michelle Obama got it wrong.

“Michelle [Obama] always says ‘When they go low, we go high,'” Holder said which campaigning for Democrats in Georgia. “No. No. When they go low, we kick them.

Responding directly to Holder’s remarks, the Republican who became one of the main faces of the pro-Kavanaugh fight said this: “I voted for Sotomayor and Kagan, I can’t imagine I would do to them what they tried to do to Kavanaugh. Keep it up, keep it up Mr. Holder…Keep doing what you’re doing, see how the American people like this. This is the number one issue I think for America in November. Do you agree with what they did to Brett Kavanaugh? Do you believe that what they did was okay? If you believe it is okay, vote Democrat. If you thought it was despicable, vote for us.” Also while speaking with MacCallum, Graham derided Democrats for their incivility.

“I would say that if you think what happened to Brett Kavanaugh was civil, we have a definite different view of what civil means. Civil means that you do not destroy a good man because you want power,” he said. “You don’t hide the evidence and ambush him, you don’t turn to the Avenattis of the world and allow accusations completely unfounded. You tell Dr. Ford, we would go to California. So, Michelle Obama said when they go low, we go high. Here’s my view of the Democratic party regarding Kavanaugh. Going low is a step up for you. You are in the gutter in terms of the Democratic Party’s approach.”

19. Let him add these pearls.

He has tied his legacy to Kavanaugh. And when we find out the truth about Kavanaugh, Lindsey will share his downfall.

I think Graham should have his own TV show. He clearly loves the limelight and loves to be in front of the camera. So something like just some kind of goofy reality show

5. Investigating claims of sexual assault is not uncivil, Senator Graham.

I understand that this is not important to Republicans, considering who they elected for President, but it matters to a lot of people.

The noxious fumes from Trump's KFC farts are getting to you, bud. Time to back away from his ass a little. Stop being a hog. Give some of the other sycophants a chance to slather it up with their kisses.

He needs to be utterly decimated politically. I’m sick of his trashy talk and snotty demeanor as though he’s the only graduate of a law school in the entire USA.

16. Lindsey was told to say that by the guy who doxed his phone number during the GOP primaries.

Lindsey does what he's told by his POTUS, the one who referred to the 2016 Dem nominee as "A Nasty Woman."

Lindsey the Lackey was ordered to say how underhanded the Dems are by his Big Daddy, the one who made up racist lies about where the previous president was born.

Lindsey the obedient sycophant feigns disgust at the so-called uncivil Dems to win the love of his president and the GOP base --- the same MAGAts, TeaBaggers, and AltRighters who chant "Lock Her Up" and took guns to their rallies and held signs displaying Obama hanging from a noose and ran down and killed a woman in the street and ganged up on a black guy in a parking garage and left him beaten to a pulp and blocked busloads of brown immigrant children while screaming "Go Home" and much worse.

But Lindsey clutches his pearls over the "uncivil" Dems for accusing his man Brett. Talk about going low. Lindsey is well on his way of taking Ted Cruz's title as the most despicable member of the U.S. Senate.

25. You mad, bro?

Seems the more Lindsey and his ilk win, the angrier they get.

I also note that in his litany of all the horrid things the Democrats did, he didn't remember even one thing out of the ordinary that the Republicans did, like hide away the bulk of Kavanaugh's record from the committee and the American people, refuse to go into executive session so that Kavanaugh could be questioned about the "committee confidential" material, and refuse to ask the White House to release the documents they squirreled away under a specious claim of executive privilege.
