WATCH Lindsey Graham Get ‘Relentlessly’ Booed At Trump Campaign Victory Celebration

While Saturday’s GOP presidential primary in South Carolina was a big victory for failed one-term former president Donald Trump, it wound up being a very public humiliation for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

During a victory celebration in the Palmetto State, Mediaite reports, Trump called Graham to the podium to make some remarks.

 He introduced Lindsey Graham as “a little bit further left than some people on this stage.” Loud boos broke out in the room and kept up as Trump tried to calm them down.

“No, no. Remember,” Trump said, but the boos continued. “I love him, he’s a good man. Come up here Lindsey,” Trump said.

Social media users couldn’t resist commenting on the rude reception Graham received in his home state.

Lindsey Graham Defends Trump For Saying Immigrants Are ‘Poisoning The Blood Of Our Country’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says failed former president Donald Trump is right to warn his supporters that immigrants to the United States are “poisoning the blood” of the country.

Trump made those comments Saturday during a campaign rally in Durham, New Hampshire, remarking, “They poison mental institutions and prisons all over the world, not just in South America… but all over the world.”

“They’re coming into our country, from Africa, from Asia, all over the world. They’re pouring into our country. Nobody is even looking at them, they just come in and the crime is going to be tremendous, the terrorism is going to be.”

Graham was asked by Kristen Welker of NBC News if Trump’s Hitleresque language bothered him.

“The Biden campaign has accused former President Trump of, quote, parroting Adolf Hitler,” Welker noted. “Are the President’s comments representative of how you and other Republicans feel?”

Graham replied, “76% of the American people, not Donald Trump, believe the border is broken. They’re worried about fentanyl coming over and killing their kids.”

Welker: “But what about his language, Senator? Just that language, that poisoning the blood.”

The senator doubled down.

“I’m worried about an outcome. He is right. He had the border secured, the lowest in 40 years, in December of 2020.”

“To the Biden administration, you’re talking about Donald Trump’s language,” he continued. “As you sit on the sidelines and allowed the country to be invaded, 172 people on the terrorist watch list have come on your watch.”

But what about the evocation of language used by Adolf Hitler? Welker pressed.

Graham got angry.

“You know, we’re talking about language. I could care less what language people use as long as we get it right.”

“If you think you’re going to win the debate on illegal immigration by picking a line out of the Trump speech. Most Americans understand the game has to change, that we’re under threat, that we’re going to get attacked, that our border has completely been obliterated.”

Hillary Clinton was absolutely right when she called Trump and his defenders “deplorables.”

WATCH: Lindsey Graham EXPLODES When Asked A Question By Reporter During Trip To Israel

During a visit to Israel on Monday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had a full-scale meltdown when a reporter from right-wing network Newsmax asked him a question about Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

At a press conference, Newsmax’s Daniel Cohen began by thanking Graham for his support of Israel, but then asked, “And I’d like to ask any Democrat senator here that would like to speak to Rashida Tlaib. She still has a tweet up condemning Israel for a hospital attack.”

Graham replied, “We are here together, not to talk about the problems at home, which are many.”

Cohen pressed: “It’s a question.”

That’s when Graham grew angry.

“You’re not going to screw this up!” Graham shouted.

Cohen: “I’m not trying to screw it up.”

That only made Graham angrier, leading him to suggest Cohen should be removed.

“Get this guy out of here!”

Graham then pounded the podium and declared:

“I’m an American. And I believe in free speech. I don’t believe what the squad has to say at all. But I came here with Democrats and Republicans to let everybody in the world know.”

“Don’t judge every Democrat by the squad, and don’t judge every Republican by some of the things you hear.”

A few minutes later, Graham offered an apology to the reporter: “And I’m sorry, my friend. I probably shouldn’t have said it, but my nerves are raw right now.”

Lindsey Graham Likely To Be Charged By DOJ For His Role In 2020 Election Crimes: Legal Expert

Even though he managed to dodge a bullet from Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is still not in the clear legally and is likely to face criminal charges from the Justice Department, according to a former U.S. attorney.

A grand jury in the Peach State recommended that Graham and two other former GOP senators — Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue — be indicted, but the DA filed no charges against them.

Graham should still be worried, Barbara McQuade, former U.S. Attorney for Michigan noted Saturday morning on MSNBC’s “The Katie Phang Show.”

Phang speculated that Graham may still be forced to testify at the Georgia racketeering trials of Trump and 18 other co-defendants, and that led McQuade to remark, “He may want to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.”

“The fact that this special grand jury recommended that he be indicted, it does indicate that he has some criminal exposure here,” McQuade added. “So it could be that his lawyer requests immunity for him to testify. If that is not received, then he may refuse to testify and then, when you’ve got these two different cases pending, the federal, case and state case, you have to worry about, even if Fani Willis isn’t going to charge you there’s a possibility he’d be charged federally.”

“And so, because of that exposure, it may be some of these witnesses demand immunity before they agreed to testify and waived their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. So in other words, they may not all be done yet.”

Lindsey had better hope he has one hell of a good attorney. Chances are things are going to get much worse for him before they get better.

Lindsey Graham Tries To Defend Trump From Indictment And Steps Into A Steaming Pile Of Irony

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on Fox “News” Monday evening and did his best impression of Henny Penny, declaring that the sky was definitely falling if disgraced former president Donald Trump wound up being indicted in the state of Georgia for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Appearing with Fox host Jesse Watters, Graham whined that the legal problems facing Trump were “unfair.”

“The American people can decide whether they want him to be president or not,” Graham declared. “This should be decided at the ballot box, not a bunch of liberal jurisdictions trying to put the man in jail.”

As HuffPost notes, many couldn’t help but wonder if Graham fully appreciated the irony of his words.

Users on … Twitter said deciding Trump’s fate at the ballot box was “sorta the point here.”
