WATCH: The Daily Show Eviscerates Lindsey Graham Via a Mockumentary

Lots of Republicans have changed their stripes since Donald Trump took control of the party back in 2016. When Trump came onto the scene, most GOP lawmakers called him out as a danger to the party.

The most vociferous of these voices may have been Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina senator was then challenging Trump for the Republican nomination. He famously tweeted, “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.”

Things have clearly changed. The South Carolina lawmaker is now one of the former president’s chief allies. He has said in public that leaving Trump at the head is the best way forward.”

The Daily Show is not impressed. Correspondent Des Lydic recently unveiled a blistering mockumentary about the Republicans. She begins, “[Graham worked at his parents] restaurant that was also a pool hall, that was also a bar, and a liquor store, that was also the home they lived in. It was basically whatever people wanted it to be. The perfect environment for raising a politician.”

Lydic concluded, “Graham did everything he could to stop the wedding between Donald Trump and America, but if he couldn’t ultimately succeed, then goddammit, he would give up harder than anyone had ever given up before.”
