Sad: Morning Joe Hosts Mock Lindsey Graham For Gushing Over Trump During Fox Interview
There have been times where Lindsey Graham has been willing to speak out against Donald Trump. Of course, he blasted the 45th president during the Republican nomination race in 2016. Graham was also critical following the January 6th insurrection. “Count me out,” he said during a floor speech.
But Graham is certainly not out on Trump. He actually seems like he is more in than ever before. The South Carolina lauded Trump during a Monday night Fox News interview. On Tuesday morning, the hosts of Morning Joe mocked the sycophantic performance.
The Republican senator gushed, “I actually like President Trump. He has been very nice to me. He’s allowed me to be in his world.”

The Morning Joe panel discussed the interview this morning. “First of all, Joe, I want to thank you for letting me into your life,” Willie Geist said to Joe Scarborough. Much like Lindsey with Trump. It means the world to me. Can you imagine saying something like that?”
“It’s really sad,” Mika Brzezinski agreed. “Who says that?”
Scarborough then chimed in, “Lindsey Graham [is] trying to stay on the right side of the seditionists and Qanon people. Three people and a chihuahua chased him through the airport and he completely melted.”
