Unraveling Lindsey Graham takes bizarre shot at Donald Trump





?s=20



Bill Palmer | 10:30 pm EDT October 29, 2020



Last week Donald Trump loyalist Lou Dobbs urged his viewers not to vote for Lindsey Graham, because Graham hasnít been willing to help Trump punish social media companies for taking down Trumpís false tweets. Dobbs would only be doing this if Trump told him to. It looks like Graham has figured out that Trump is out to get him, and now Graham is taking shots at Trump accordingly.

During an interview with local station WCNC, Lindsey Graham was asked why a stimulus package didnít get done before the election. Grahamís answer: ďIíll be honest with you, I donít see much desire to help President Trump on anything, to be honest with you.Ē



Graham then went on to explain why he didnít like the House version of the stimulus bill, and he predicted that a bipartisan stimulus will get done shortly after the election. In other words, Graham and Senate Republicans werenít willing to swallow the House stimulus just to help Trumpís reelection odds. Looks like the Senate GOP is indeed hanging Trump out to dry.

2. Always a problem to say 'to be honest with you'

twice in a sentence. Bad enough once, but doesnít 2 times behave akin to a doulble negative and turn one into a dishonest lyiní sack oí potatoes?

3. Meh.. Palmer Report.

It's always very inaccurate. Graham was talking about Dems in the house not wanting to help Trump. Just because Palmer report tells us what we love to hear does not make it right.

6. Thank you

I blocked that site on twitter. Although they may be on ďour sideĒ much is exaggerated or hyperbole. Sometimes even completely a wrong spin.

4. "Does the phrase 'we will be destroyed and we will deserve it' sound remotely familiar, Senator?"

How is this not the question EVERY reporter asks this turd?

5. Do you remember when McConnell tricked Trump into taking the blame?

He told him Democrats werenít negotiating in good faith. Trump publicly tried to be a tough guy and pulled out of negotiations. Turns out it was a McConnell trick to protect senators.

So Graham is kind of right here and he is partly to blame with the ďover my dead bodyĒ talk.

10. +1. Turtle can read a poll as good as anyone

and thinks Trump is going down - so why not have him take the blame for the failing to 'help the American people'. Then Turtle can call for austerity and reducing the deficit once Biden gets in.

15. Yertle can call for austerity all he wants.

Looking at it 8 different ways, every Senate election forecast projects a Democratic majority there. One of the eight predicts a tie, but that's still a majority with VP Harris casting vote #51.

13. "Looks like the Senate GOP is indeed hanging Trump out to dry"

My prediction two weeks ago was that once Barret was confirmed republicans would begin throwing trump under the bus, with Barret in they don't need him anymore, they know he is so toxic, that keeping him is destroying their party, not realizing they have and continue to contribute to the destruction, its just that the buffoon has a higher visual than many of them do.

14. Thanks for this from The Palmer Report, rivers.

That's not exactly supporting trump in his close Senate race.

17. Hadn't heard that Lou Dobbs comment. That's interesting.

I hope all these GOP destroy each other over the remaining months of this administration.
