Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) desperately wants to inherit the mantle of Donald Trump, even though Trump is just a failed, one-term former president who is probably on the verge of being indicted and placed in prison for a very long time.
How much does Graham want to be the next Trump? So much so that he made a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border for one purpose: To wrap himself in Trump’s overpriced, flimsy excuse of a border wall between the United States and Mexico.
While he was at the border, Lindsey even made a pathetic video which only serves to make it appear that the South Carolina senator wants to try and rewrite history while simultaneously reimagining himself as a rock-ribbed racist and xenophobe in the vain hope of getting the MAGA faithful to swoon for him.
In the video, Graham whines:
The only thing missing from the video is Graham clutching at his pearls and fanning himself as he pretends he suffering from a case of “the vapors” when he contemplates all the horrible things that could be in Mexico and must be kept away from the genteel minds of all the pious American “Christians” who must be protected at any cost.
See for yourself:
Here’s the thing: Wouldn’t it make more sense to have a logical immigration policy that allows for a pathway to citizenship instead of a wall that the majority of Americans oppose? The wall is just a way of putting a Band-Aid on a much larger problem that Graham and his GOP allies in Congress are too afraid to actually tackle with legislation, even though that’s their damn jobs!
Once again, Lindsey Graham has proven that he’s nothing more than an empty suited hack who is insistent on riding the coattails of a man who would toss him under the nearest bus just to watch him squirm.
