Mealy-mouthed Lindsey undermines Pres. Trump

Lindsey Graham, a dedicated McCain loyalist, can’t figure out which way he swings without his good buddy to accompany him down the dark senate corridors, while whispering not-so-sweet nothings in his ear.

Just days ago Graham was stepping out in a fit of pseudo boldness, advising President Trump to hang tough and not cave to the petulant Pelosi and unscrupulous shakedowner Schumer. In this statement, Graham advised Pres. Trump, “Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier. It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

Now he advises Trump to cut a deal with the intransigent leftists.

Appearing onFox News Sunday,” (video) Graham urged the president to reopen the partial government shutdown for three weeks to allow lawmakers to negotiate.

Talking out of both sides of his mouth, Graham said, “It really does perplex me how you expect this to end when you tell the president of the United States, you can’t get $1 for a wall when in the past Democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. What’s he supposed to do, just give in? He’s not going to give in.”

Then in the next breath, Graham pressed Trump to do exactly that, saying, “I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time — like three weeks — before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal. If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off — see if he can do it by himself with the emergency powers. That is my recommendation.”

As Graham pursues an agenda markedly different from the conservative, Trump-supporting base — pushing the farcical DACA and expanded Temporary Protected Status currently estimated to exceed 400,000, it’s important to remember exactly who Lindsey Graham is.

In July 2015, Graham called GOP frontrunner Donald Trump a “jackass” during an interview on CNN. By December, Graham suspended his lifeless presidential campaign, due to lack of support and dismal polling and quickly endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. When it became clear Donald Trump would be the Republican presidential nominee, Graham, emulating McCain and joined by Flake, announced that he would not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton, stating on CNN, “I think Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I’m not going with him.”

Graham is obviously not someone Pres. Trump can rely on. His advice is worthless. With friends like Lindsey Graham, who needs enemies?

    There are RINOs, and then there are ultra-RINO’s, and then there are McRINOs. Once a McRINO, always a McRINO. If it talks like one, and walks like one….

    If we could just flush all of these McRino’s from federal and state government we could get a lot closer to efficient and honest government. OK maybe not honest, after all they are politicians.

      Anyone connected to any of the Arizona Republicrat senators (McCain, Kyl, Flake) are suspect. This trio was more attuned to providing amnesty to illegal aliens than to representing the citizens of Arizona. They ALL did whatever they could to undermine us, although we paid their cushy salaries.

  3. Observer says:

    Lindsey Grahamnesty has no core, He’s still channeling John McCain for guidance.

  4. Frankly Speaking says:

    I just watched the video following the post. Amazing! Lindsey Graham has no idea where he stands on any given topic on any day of the week. How has he managed to fool his constituents for so long and be reelected? Imagine this double talker in the White House. He has no idea of what his own views are.

    Ok…so…limply mcGraham once again talks out of th’ side of his NECK. Like ANYONE here expected ANYTHING LESS! Truth be told, there are some issues that I find myself concerned with. Like border wall funding.

    America currently has the wealthiest, & arguably the the worst dope dealer that we know of. Hell, we’re giving this “el chapo” a trial which…well…I’ll keep my mouth shut on that one. AAaaannnnyyyyway…this dope dealer has in his stores…(I’ve read…) FOURTEEN BILLION SMACK-A-ROONIES! Let’s let HIM foot th’ bill! That way, we get to poke a stick right in his sorry eye, thereby having “Mexico” pay for the wall! President Trump would do a “Hail-Mary”, & schmukey & peloozer would suffer a loss…AND President Trump would keep YET AGAIN…His Word.

    See? Problem solved. Now, without any further non-sense, I say we all retire to the Veranda for a Rox Glass of Maker’s Mark! Here’s to a job Well Done!!

    I forgive Senator Graham for all of his past missed opportunities to get behind Trump for one reason: Kavanaugh! That levels the score card in my book. His outrage, his voice, his leadership, and vote carried the day.
