Senator Lindsey Graham defends Trump's use of 'lynching'

Source: BBC



The Republican senator came to the president's defence after Mr Trump called the impeachment inquiry "a lynching" in a tweet.

Graham was reacting to Trump's words earlier in Tuesday where he described the House impeachment inquiry as a lynching.

2. "A lynching in every sense..."

Except nobody's been hung from a tree or dragged behind a car or set on fire by a lawless mob...

They want to imply that though.

His Southern Gentleman delicate and genteel ways and mannerisms always sound so fake to me... what a phony he is! When he has one of his little temper tantrums, he sounds like he's trying to impersonate one of the characters from Gone With the Wind.

13. Rest assured that when a conservative mentions "The good old days..."

This is exactly what they mean; when the patriarchal society and overt racism & bigotry were the status quo...

14. This is frightening. The GOP is trying to dilute the horror of actual lynchings. Now their echo

I'm sick to my stomach. It's unconscionable for them to appropriate and redefine what a lynching actually is.
