[COMMENTARY] Twitter Drags Lindsey Graham For Spending Memorial Day In Israel
Remember back in 2018 when Rand Paul spent the July 4th holiday weekend in Moscow, hand-delivering a letter to Vladimir Putin on behalf of Donald Trump and hanging out with Russian Senators? Now Lindsey Graham has seemingly carried out another similar errand for the Former Guy on Memorial Day, just with a different location and a different Bad Actor.
Graham tweeted photos and videos of himself in Israel alongside Benjamin Netanyahu, the Trumpesque Prime Minster on the verge of being ousted by two opposing factions who are uniting to attempt to remove him from power. Why was Lindsey Graham in Israel on a most American holiday?
“No one has done more for Israel than you, Senator Lindsey Graham, stalwart champion of our alliance and we have no better friend,” Netanyahu told Graham. “You’ve been a tremendous friend and a tremendous ally.”
"No one has done more for Israel than you, Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC, a stalwart champion of our alliance and we have no better friend. I want to thank you for everything you've been doing over the years on our defenses, our security, on Iran. You've been a tremendous friend and ally pic.twitter.com/Nw1vulBLHt

Graham shared several videos of himself touring areas damaged by the bombs traded between Israel and Hamas. Palestine suffered far more damage and loss, which neither man addressed when facing the cameras. Instead, Netanyahu continued praising Graham for the work he’s done on Israeli defense, security, and Iran. Graham returned the praise and essentially presented himself as a human Billboard for Bibi.

“The eyes and ears of America is [sic] Israel,” Graham said. “Nobody does more to protect America from radical Islam than our friends in Israel.” As he held up a sign that read, “More for Israel,” Graham asked, “So what can you expect, my friends in Israel, in the next coming days and weeks from Washington? More.”
Who the heck gave Lindsey Graham permission to go speak with Netanyahu…..Lindsey is NOT secretary of state

Since Graham didn’t take the Memorial Day Holiday off or give the day the respect it deserves, Twitter didn’t take any time to drag #LapdogLindsey for once again choosing another country over America. Herewith, a collection of some of the better takes on Lindsey’s bad decision to become Bibi’s new Boo.

Say what you will about Major Biden, but he’s still been a better first pet than Lindsey Graham. pic.twitter.com/fQO7KAC4S8

Pretty ironic that Lindsey Graham runs to "help defend Israel" on Memorial Day, but couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag to defend American Democracy if his life depended on it.

If John McCain was alive today he’d punch Lindsey Graham in the throat.

After Netanyahu said, "No one's done more for Israel than you", Lindsey Graham blushed, winked and asked, "And is there a Mrs. Netanyahu?" pic.twitter.com/nehQ5qUyqS
