Prior to Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham was seen as a Republican willing to work both sides of the aisle. He even had a close relationship with now, President Joe Biden. The South Carolina Senators’ methods and reputation certainly changed after he became a toadie for Trump.
Sometimes, Graham is willing to show some backbone. This week, the GOP lawmaker signaled that he might be willing to do something about gun control. This led to a serious rebuke from Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Though Greene has not committed to anything, the Georgia Republican said on her podcast, “He’s ready to vote for anything Joe Biden wants, he is ready to violate due process, and this is everything wrong with Republicans in the Republican Party. I’m calling out Senator Lindsey Graham, and I’m hoping every single one of you calls his office and tell him that he is breaking his promise.”
“We need to remind him that he needs to keep his promise to me. He needs to keep his promise to you. He needs to keep his promise to South Carolina,” she continued.
Greene closed, “He’s helping him and making sure that Joe Biden gets his people put in place so they can radically destroy the United States of America. I don’t think that’s what a Republican senator from South Carolina should be doing.”
