Lindsey Graham Does 35 Push-Ups To Support Herschel Walker – And It’s Even Worse Than You Can Imagine

In an effort to get Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker elected in next months runoff election, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show Wednesday evening and agreed to do push-ups to prove his support for Walker.

Queerty ran across the video of Graham working out on Walker’s YouTube account and reports:

The challenge came about after Sean Hannity spoke to Walker and Graham on a Fox News segment. He said that Walker impressed him previously with his ability to do push-ups. Hannity suggested Walker check out whether Graham was up to the challenge of doing some himself.

This led to a campaign video in which Graham challenges viewers to donate $34 if he and Walker can each do 34 push-ups. It’s unclear why they plumped for the number 34.

In the video, Graham happily gets down and does 35 push-ups, followed by Walker.

Before you watch the video, you might want to make sure your children and elderly relatives are out of the room. It could well be too much for impressionable youngsters and lead to cardiac arrest for anyone over the age of 60 once they start laughing and can’t quit.

Graham was also present when Walker was being interviewed and the candidate proudly proclaimed that “This erection is about the people.”

Erection election in a pumped up direction. Since Walker is too clueless to explain policy, the push-ups tell all you need to know about the “substance” of his campaign.

Gisele Fetterman Claps Back At Fox News For Pushing A Conspiracy Theory About Her

Gisele Fetterman is sick and tired of the bullshit being spread by Fox News and other right-wing “news” outlets regarding her husband, Senator-elect John Fetterman (D-PA) since he won a contentious election over Republican challenger Mehmet Oz.

Specifically, Fox is now suggesting that Mrs. Fetterman is some sort of “puppet master” who will be the de facto senator from the Keystone State, even though the voters didn’t elect her.

The New Republic notes that Fox seems determined to undermine the new Pennsylvania senator before he even takes office in January.

That triggered right-wing attacks that have persisted ever since. A survey by liberal press tracker Media Matters for America found that Fox News’s primetime lineup mentioned Fetterman more than Democratic nominees in six other competitive races combined.

On Tuesday, Fox News host Harris Faulkner took issue with a photo Gisele tweeted of herself beside her Senator-elect husband who is partially cropped from the image (…the couple have a running joke that John doesn’t fit in photos).

A conspiracy theory was implied that Gisele was trying to steal the show (and maybe even the Senate seat) from her duly elected husband.

“First day for Senator-elect Gisele Fetterman,” said Townhall’s Mia Cathell. “Why is she even there?” asked someone called Bonchie on RedState. Both remarks were quickly aggregated with other jabs against Gisele into a digital story on Fox News’s website, which was followed by a graphics package of mean tweets about the Fettermans that Faulkner gleefully read on-air.

Gisele has seen and heard the hateful attacks on her, and now she’s giving as good as she got from Fox, slamming them and others in right-wing media as misogynists.

“The right-wing hates women. They especially hate strong women, and I think that’s what you’re seeing,” said Gisele of the ceaseless ridicule she’s gotten from conservative media operatives looking to define her as self-serving and suspicious. “The fact that a spouse of a senator-elect has been attacked nonstop for the past 24 hours and everyone’s okay with it and everyone thinks it’s normal … it’s not normal,” said Gisele after her first day on Capitol Hill.

“Since entering the Capitol for training, my inbox has been completely filled with threats and horrible things. And that’s because I’ve been a non-stop loop on Fox News,” said the Brazilian-born Senate spouse. “Hopefully it’s not like this forever … and hopefully it’s not like this for the next young Latina or person of color or spouse who enters this space.”

As a matter of fact, Gisele insists, she has never and will never seek to have a career in politics.

“Never. It’s not for me. It’s a very cruel world, and I am not cruel. I don’t ever wanna become cruel. I’m sensitive. I want people to like me. It hurts me when people are mean.”

Donald Trump Elections U.S. Senate

Trump Claims Arizona ‘Stole The Electron’ After Senate Race Is Called For Democrat

The Senate race between incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly and his Republican challenger, Blake Masters, was called Friday evening, with Kelly being declared the winner after 83% of the ballots had been counted.

NBC News reported:

Kelly’s projected victory on Friday comes three days after polls closed, and as Arizona officials continued counting ballots that were mailed or dropped off, particularly in the vote-rich Maricopa County, home to Phoenix. It gives Democrats 49 Senate seats, one short of securing a majority, with Nevada still counting votes and Georgia’s contest headed to a Dec. 6 runoff.

Masters, it should be noted, was enthusiastically endorsed by failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.

As you’d expect, Trump was apoplectic after it became clear that Masters had failed to win. He took to his failing Truth Social social media site and demanded a new election be held.

“They stole the Electron from Blake Masters. Do Election over again!”

Stole the electron? What in the hell?

There were also these posts from the disgraced ex-president:

But it was the “electron” typo that drew the most attention and ridicule.

Biden Puts Oz On Full Blast After Learning He Attended High School In Delaware

President Joe Biden laid one hell of a nasty burn on Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Mehmet Oz when he found out that the doctor had attended high school in the president’s home state of Delaware.

Speaking to a crowd at a campaign even for Oz’s Democratic opponent, John Fetterman in Philadelphia, Biden remarked:

“I couldn’t believe it. He went to high school in Delaware. But Delaware was smart enough to send him to New Jersey.”

That wasn’t all the president said about a U.S. Senate controlled by Republicans, Politico reports:

“If, in fact, we lose the Senate, say goodbye to lower medical costs. Gone,” Biden said shortly after saying Fetterman has “got to win.”

Additionally, Biden noted that Republicans want to cut all aid to Ukraine and let Russia continue its war against the Ukrainian people.

“They said that if they win, they’re likely to not continue to fund Ukraine,” Biden said. “These guys don’t get it.”

Recent polls from the Keystone State show Fetterman with a small lead over Oz, and many political observers believe the race will come down to turnout, which is always crucial for Democrats. The massive turnout in the 2020 election is one of the reasons Biden won the election and Democrats gained seats in the Senate.

Capitol Insurrection Elections GOP January 6 U.S. Senate

Evan McMullin Destroys Mike Lee In Utah Senate Debate By Branding Him A January 6 Conspirator

Independent U.S. Senate candidate lit into Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah on Monday evening in Orem, accusing him being an apologist for the January 6 riots at the Capitol and his refusal to condemn ex-president Donald Trump for trying to overturn the 2020 election.

Lee, you may recall, urged advisers to Trump to bring attorney Sidney Powell into the election lawsuits. Powell was later sanctioned by a court in Michigan for blatantly lying in a legal filing she made.

During the debate, Lee pulled a pocket-size copy of the U.S. Constitution and declared:

“I was one of the people trying to dismantle the situation because I believe in this document.”

McMullin pounced:

“Senator Lee has been doing this thing with a pocket constitution for the last several years. Senator Lee, the constitution is not a prop. You said the president should listen to legal quack Sidney Powell, please make time for her, let her in you told the white house chief of staff… You were there to stand up for our constitution but when the barbarians were at the gate, you were happy to let them in.”

He added:

“For you to talk about the importance of the Electoral College is rich,” McMullin also said. “You know exactly how important it is and I think you knew how important it was when you sought to urge the White House that lost an election to find fake electors to overturn the will of the people.”

Later in the debate, McMullin slammed Lee for his refusal to support Ukraine as the nation tries to fight off an illegal invasion by Russia:

“You are the only member of Utah’s congressional delegation not to be blacklisted by Putin. There is a reason why. In 2017 he was one of only two senators to vote against sanctioning Putin’s regime. In 2019, He went to Russia alone and discussed lifting sanctions.”

Lee’s response was tepid and pathetic:

“I think disagree with everything my opponent just said, including the words ‘but,’ ‘and,’ and ‘the’ It was an information-free, truth-free statement that’s something of a record.”

The latest polls from Utah show Sen. Lee is incredibly vulnerable and on the verge of losing to McMullin.
