Lindsey Graham Says Americans Have to 'Accept the Pain' Caused by Trump's Trade War

“Every Democrat and every Republican of note has said China cheats. The Democrats for years have been claiming that China should be stood up to. Now Trump is and we’ve just got to accept the pain that comes with standing up to China,” Graham told CBS anchor Margaret Brennan on Face the Nation Sunday.

“How do you get China to change without create something pain on them and us? I don’t know,” Graham mused.

“How much pain should people of South Carolina be prepared for?” Brennan asked.

“Some,” he responded. “Consumer prices on commodities are going to go up. We’re now at that part in the trade war where you feel price increases at Walmart. The president has backed off because he’s worried about the Christmas shopping season. I’d tell him ‘Mr. President, listen, you have a lot more bullets than they do. The goal is to get them to change their behavior.'”

Graham also acknowledged steel and aluminum tariffs are hurting his state a lot.

“Steel and aluminum tariffs have hurt us a lot,” Graham said. “But the steel and aluminum business has a chance to come back. China produced more steel in one year than the entire world testimony consumed. That’s an unfair trade practice. They should be in the WTO [World Trade Organization] as a developed nation, not a developing nation.”

1. Fuck you, Lindsey.

I bet that he's well cushioned against any "pain".

2. No one cares what Lindsey says. No one ever did.

He has always been a follower. Unfortunately for Lindsey, he went from following and parroting McCain to following and parroting Trump.

5. I'm going to borrow that acronym

for daily use, please and thank you. I was just going to say “Fuck you Lindsey. I don’t have to accept fuck all from you or anyone else, ever.” How does that hack get any votes from anyone? Seriously?

4. Leningrad Lindsey already has his pain cushion...

...in the form of Russian money laundering. Now, he expects everyone else to "feel the pain," while he enjoys his rubles.

Just another evil asswipe...

6. Leningrad Lindsey Graham will, unfortunately, have to get used to the fact

 

that he will NEVER get rid of the stink of Donald Trump.

Nor will the rest of the treasonous, pathetic, traitorous GOP political enablers, or the supporters of turdface.

The scent memory of this "culture" war is going to last generations.

So. Sad.

7. So, Sen. Graham, how much pain have you signed up for?

None? Or less?

12. Gah. Bleh. What an obsequious douche.

Don't pee in my boots and tell me it's raining, Lindsey. Don't tell me people want the pain.

Nobody except Trump and the trade guy he bought on Amazon thought tariffs were a good idea. He sold this painted mule to his gullible base, and now everyone has to pay?! And so, now, Lindsey is selling the con, just as sure as he sold his soul.

He's up for reelection, so maybe he'll pay for his bullshit at the ballot box.
