Anti-Trumper Lindsey Graham opportunistically contorts into Trump supporter

McMaverick’s inseparable sidekick magically transforms, but can he be trusted?

Republicans are symbolized by the elephant for good reason. We share the animal’s strength, intellect and determination. We also possess long memories, a trait for which the impressive creatures are noted.

These characteristics are relevant in the context of political battles and alliances as they relate to besieged President Trump. Democrats and RINOcrats hammer him daily. Trump antagonist Mitt Romney, who deceivingly courted president-elect Trump, desperate to be named secretary of state, also campaigned with anti-Trump McCain, drawing less than stellar crowds. This Arizona Independent News Network cartoon and report links to a SRAZ post on an abysmal turnout. McCain returned the favor, though he fumblingly introduced Romney (video) as “President Obama.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a McCain devotee, appears to have moderated his stance on President Trump, advocating against the covert proceedings as the dems attempt to invalidate the 2016 election via impeachment.  Many conservatives remain skeptical of Graham’s newfound support of the president he routinely assailed when his loyal partner McCain was still above ground. Bachelor Graham described his relationship with McCain, stating, “It was a political marriage.”

Suddenly Graham, up for reelection in 2020, is a fervent supporter of President Trump. Graham is keenly aware his home state of South Carolina gave all nine of its electoral votes to Donald Trump, who carried the state with 54.9% to Hillary’s 40.7%.

Lest anyone be lulled into thinking Lindsey Graham has done a complete turnaround. This was Graham in December 2015 — 4 short years ago — appearing on CNN.

 Graham accused Donald Trump of being a “race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot, the ISIL Man of the Year, undercutting everything we stand for, empowering our enemy… culminating with…“and you know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell!”

Sens. Graham, McCain, and Romney (elected in Utah, Jan. 2019), joined by now ex-senator Jeff Flake, all publicly stated they would not vote for Trump in 2016. 

Romney and Flake have one other area of significance in common.  Flake had an 18% approval rating in his home state of Arizona, causing him to abandon his campaign for a second senate term. Romney is polling at exactly the same nationally, with only 18 % having a positive image of Romney, according to this NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Sunday. Romney opposes additional funding for a border wall. Utah is well on its way to becoming a sanctuary state.

Trusting opportunist Lindsey Graham is a fool’s errand.

    “Trusting opportunist Lindsey Graham is a fool’s errand.”

    You’ve got that right!!! Once a RINO, always a RINO. Especially when one has a record of playing sycophant to the late but not great King of All RINOs.

    There’s no danger of actual conservatives trusting Lindsey Graham. I, for one, trust him as far a I can throw Cindy McCain’s newest mansion or Mega’s ginormous posterior.

    Lindsey Grahmnesty is simply positioning himself to win in a Trump supporting state. I trust nothing he says. He’s a longtime McCain toady. Dead or alive, McCain occupies his mind.

    • Sigmund Freud says:

      McCain occupying anyone’s mind night and day? That qualifies as nightmares and daymares, capable of producing schizophrenia.

      • Seen It All says:

        Even Cindy McCain has moved on. She’s signed up with United Talent Agency, a Hollywood booking firm, and the beer heiress is reportedly charging large fees to speak.

        She’s listed as a “humanitarian.” I wonder if her personal pilfering of narcotics meant for the desperately ill third worlders she supposedly was rending humanitarian aid to, counts?? Her family had to stage an “intervention” to get her in treatment.

    I agree. A long memory is necessary to be able to survive as a conservative. Might want to use that long memory on McSalley.
