According to Sen. Lindsey Graham, there are members of his family who are too lazy to work because they’d rather stay home and collect unemployment benefits.
During a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Graham asked Shalanda Young, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, about the temporary COVID-19 unemployment benefits. Young responded that the current unemployment level is the lowest since the pandemic began.
The South Carolina senator suddenly interrupted, remarking:
Young told Graham:
But Graham was having none of it:
But not everyone was buying what Graham was selling, no matter how much he was willing to pay an hour, and they let him know they thought he was flat-out lying to make his point:
As usual, Lindsey is completely full of shit. No wonder he’s a Republican.
Has Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) been in the Senate for too long? Or has he simply lost what was left of his mind?
Those are pertinent questions after a bizarre performance Graham gave at a press conference Monday when he suggested that “deep state” scientists plotted to destroy failed, one-term former President Donald Trump.
The presser, which was held in Greenville, South Carolina, was set up as a platform for Graham to call for a congressional investigation into whether or not the COVID-19 virus had originated “from a lab” in China, with the senator asking:
That led Graham to go off on a rant about a “group of scientists” (not a one of whom he named) who had allegedly downplayed the virus as nothing but a right-wing talking point:
Well, wasn’t the State Department under the control of then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo when the pandemic reached the United States? Is Pompeo part of the “deep state,” too?
That’s when Graham entered full meltdown mode:
Not wacko enough for you? Lindsey put on his tinfoil hat and began spinning more conspiracy theories he failed to provide a speck of evidence to support, deciding to reference the Steele dossier and Russia investigation:
Political motivations in an election year? Say it ain’t so, Lindsey! That never ever happens, does it?
Now that COVID has become an Achilles heel for the GOP, they’re trying to blame the scientific community, China, Russia, Christopher Steele, and the “boogeyman” for their own ineptitude and their fantatical support of a clown who told us coronavirus would magically disappear when warmer weather arrived or if we drank bleach.
Sorry, Lindsey, but all you managed to prove with your surreal press conference is that you’re drinking the Crazy Train Kool-Aid, too. For God’s sake, man, put the cup down and seek professional help!
Here’s the video of Graham’s unhinged press conference:
Something very strange is going on in South Carolina, and it could well have profound implications for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R), who just so happens to be the senior senator from the Palmetto State.
Recently in Hampton County, South Carolina, the state’s GOP chairman, Drew McKissick, was accosted by attorney Lin Wood, whose claim to fame is that he filed some of the most bizarre and batshit crazy lawsuits seeking to over the 2020 election and have federal courts declare failed, one-term former President Donald Trump the victor, even though he lost by 7 million popular votes and 74 Electoral College votes to President Joe Biden.
Wood is running to unseat McKissick as head of the South Carolina Republican Party, and during his confrontation with the current chairman, he suddenly dropped the Sen. Graham’s name.
Later in the clip, Wood is again trying to suggest that something is about to break that will supposedly be detrimental in one way or another to Graham and McKissick:
But McKissick remains undaunted:
Once more, Wood reiterates his nebulous threat:
What’s going to come out? That remains unclear; Wood didn’t give any specifics, and he’s known to be fond of conspiracy theories.
But Wood’s ranting has set off speculation once again that there’s something Lindsey Graham is hiding. Some have suggested Russia may have kompromat (compromising material) that proves they have given payoffs to Graham. There has been no evidence of this and it’s little more than speculation.
And there’s also the longtime whispers that the 65-year-old, never married Graham is a closeted gay man who is terrified coming out would be the end of his career in a state as conservative as South Carolina.
Whatever Lin Wood is referring to, this sort of negative publicity isn’t the least bit helpful to Graham or the GOP, and if Wood does indeed have some sort of information that would implicate Graham in something unsavory, it could do serious damage to other Republicans allied with the senator.
It’s going to come out, Lin Wood insists. We’ll just have to wait and see what in the hell he’s talking about.
Now that he’s no longer on the White House’s speed dial and has become largely irrelevant, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is desperate to pretend he still has some modicum of power.
Proof of that was on display when Graham appeared on Fox News Monday, rattling the proverbial saber as he threatened China, even though he doesn’t make foreign policy.
Graham was asked this question by host Ben Domenech of The Federalist:
Human rights still matter? Is that supposed to be a joke? Donald Trump never talked about human rights in China. He was far too busy starting a trade war that he lost and that may have also played a part in costing him a second term in office He even told Chinese President Xi Jinping that he completely approved of putting the Uighurs into concentration camps.
Now, however, we’re is supposed to listen to Graham the hypocrite and believe he’s earnest in his concern for minority groups in China? When will Lindsey do the same for minorities in his own country?
Sen. Graham needs to sit down and let the experts shape U.S. foreign policy, because it’s clear he’s auditioning for the 2024 GOP cattle call. As if he has a chance in hell of winning.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tried to make himself sound like some sort of a tough guy during an appearance on Fox News, but all he accomplished was humiliating himself when social media began relentlessly mocking Senator “Rambo” for his bragging.
Speaking with Fox host Chris Wallace, Graham brazenly declared:
Actually, Lindsey, your house will the last one because you creep everyone out and no one wants to see you in your boxer shorts or whatever it is you wear around the house.
Graham was immediately pelted with hilarious mocking online:
Poor Lindsey! He wants us to think he’s a macho man, but we all know better. Then again, so does he.
