Multiple GOP senators criticize Trump’s church stunt: ‘Don’t know what point the president was trying to make’

Published 1 min ago on June 2, 2020



Several Republican senators on Tuesday were critical of President Donald Trump’s photo op at the St. John’s Church in Washington D.C. that necessitated launching teargas at peaceful protesters.

Via Huffington Post reporter Igor Bobic, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) criticized Trump for going to the church for his photo op right as the curfew in Washington D.C. went into effect.


“If he’d have gone out there yesterday morning rather than right before curfew, that would have been a non-issue,” he said. “The whole appearance at that time, right before curfew, I thought was wrong timing.”


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) similarly said he was confused by what the president was doing.


“I don’t know what the point the president was trying to make,” he said. “Trying to restore order is a good thing, attack on a church is a terrible thing. I don’t think it advanced the ball one way or another.”

And Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) ................

Very mild criticism IMHO. None of these 3 actually were critical of the fact that Trump used the Church--and the Bible as a campaign prop!

4. Graham isn't confused.

He'll pull back into line after getting out there to make some statements and then go back to being a complete brown noser.

8. Those are so weak it's as bad as praise

The whole thing was an excuse to attack peaceful protesters to get a photo op at a church he wouldn’t be caught dead inside of.

It’s like the worst kind of apologies. They know exactly what was about but they don’t have the moral compass to say it.

Typical bullshit from craven republicans.

15. No kidding, what a dopey thing to say.

In the middle of a pandemic and an international protest over a racial murder, Lindsay is more concerned about what yard line some imaginary stupid ball is located.
Your imaginary football field is full of mud and blood and bodies of the dead, Mr. Senator. Stop talking like a demented quarterback and do your job to help the citizens you took an oath to serve.

10. "I don't think it advanced the ball one way or another."

As dangerous and malignant as Trump is, I think little, punk-ass enablers like Lindsey Graham may be worse.

People's lives, and the structural democracy of our country, are just a fucking game to him.
