Sen. Lindsey Graham Calls Congresswomen Targeted By Trump Anti-American 'Communists' [View all]

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) cranked up the Donald Trump sycophancy by blasting the president’s Democratic enemies during his appearance on Fox & Friends Monday morning.

Graham was on to talk about how the president has been handling tensions between Iran and the United States, but Ainsley Earhardt shifted the conversation towards new polls projecting Trump would lose to several of the Democratic candidates challenging him for 2020. Graham responded that “[Trump’s] gonna win, just knock it down a notch”…and then the senator went full throttle.

“We all know [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border, Border Patrol agents concentration camp guards. They accuse people support Israel doing it for the Benjamins. They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America. Don’t get down, aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies.”


Putting aside Graham’s immediate double-take about making slights on political opponents, it seems obvious he was referencing Trump’s attacks on AOC and her progressive colleagues over the weekend, which have been deemed “racist” by a plethora of critics. When Brian Kilmeade asked if Trump’s tweets were negative, Graham continued his charge against the “disgusting” agenda from the president’s opponents, but he did recognize them as “American citizens duly-elected.”
