A number of Republican lawmakers have been more than willing to humiliate themselves in the age of Trump. Ted Cruz supported the false election claims despite the former president calling his wife ugly. Marco Rubio, who engaged in a strange masculinity contest with Trump, is now all in on the former president.
But no one gushes about Trump quite like Lindsey Graham does. Once a fierce opponent to Trumpism, Graham is now the senates to lap dog. During a Friday night appearance on Fox News, the South Carolina senator whined about how much he misses the former guy.
Graham told Laura Ingraham:
“We’ve had two cyberattacks on our economy coming from Russian territory, by Russian organizations I think are given a pass by the Russian government,” he said. “They are probably working together, to be honest with you. Is Biden asking the Europeans to do anything to push back against Russian cyberterrorism? Is he even talking about what should we do to rein China in? No. Of course, this is just all fluff and happy talk. I miss Mr. Trump.”
The South Carolina senator continued, “Let’s just be honest. The bad guys were afraid of Trump. Who’s afraid of Biden? The Europeans are talking about doing a trade deal with China as China dismantles Hong Kong’s democracy and is engaging in genocide against the Uyghurs. So, this just blows my mind.”
