Sen. Lindsey Graham Rips Trump Over Fascist Group Retweets: The Antidote To Terrorism Isn’t Racism

“The one thing I’ve learned after 42 trips to the region is that the antidote to terrorism is not racism and religious bigotry. When you embrace religious bigotry, when you say that all Muslims are the same, then you’re undercutting our effort to win the war. I think it was very inappropriate for the President of the United States to retweet these videos, because they just breed hatred and contempt.” – Sen. Lindsey Graham, speaking today on CNN.

    Trump has been radicalizing domestic and foreign terrorists since he began his campaign. As my dear friend Rachel says, watch their actions, not their words. Your words are pointless and accomplish nothing. Until you and Congress unite to remove this danger to the US and the world – YOU ARE COMPLICIT.

    • penpal

      Republicans as a whole have been complicit. Trump is not an anomaly. He is the perfect Republican as far as his values are concerned.

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        Yup! You said it well.

    “I think it was very inappropriate”

    That’s nice Lindsey. Get back to me with you withhold a vote for something Trump wants to do or call for his removal. Until then, all your pearl clutching and “i do declares” are feigned noise.

  • Todd20036

    Sorry, Mr. Biscuits, but you knew he was racist when he campaigned, and you still voted for him and you continue to vote for his anti American bills.

    Fuck off, you stupid quisling.

  • JackNasty

    After criticizing Trump, Senator Graham sat on a nearby fainting couch, took a great big whiff of smelling salts, then got up and voted for Trumps’s tax cuts.

  • Harveyrabbit

    “I think it was very inappropriate for the President of the United States to retweet these videos”

    “Now if you don’t mind I have to get busy passing our new, great tax bill!”

    • james1200

      Lady Graham hates to disappoint her donors.

  • Do Something Nice

    It’s past time for these bozos in Congress to get off the Twitter machine and start the process to get Trump out of office, ASAP. The man is a menace to our country and peace on earth.

  • Tawreos

    I think Lindsey and all others that agree with him should start withholding their votes until Trump gets the message that his behavior is inappropriate.

    • David Walker

      Like that’ll ever happen. But I like the idea. “What happened to my good friends in the Senate?” It has a nice ring to it.

  • safari

    When Lindsey retires and comes out… does that mean we have to have a parade?

    • Tawreos

      Only if he does in June

    • Treant

      Nope, we’re allowed to write him off with a, “Closet case Republican! Fuck you!”

    • Ben in Oakland

      No, but we might have to take a shit.

    • shellback

      I would think something more on the lines of a cortège.

    • Uncle Mark

      Yes, we should…just be sure to throw LindseyBelle under the wheels of one of the heavier floats…be sure to liberally season the squashed remains with glitter.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      A parade to HELL

    • William

      As long as it goes something like this:

  • Treant

    Save it, Ham Biscuits. You’ll vote for the tax plan, you’ve voted in support of every other Trump plan. I’m fucking tired of hearing it dribble out of your cum-soaked queen-mouth.

    • safari

      I’m curious whose cum it is.

      • Treant

        (shudder)

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        an unnamed goat

        • Treant

          That would be better, actually. You can definitely say the goat doesn’t have the ability to consent and, consequently, cannot be held accountable.

  • Friday’s_cat

    Sorry, Graham, you and the filth own Trump.

  • Tomcat

    Lindsey if you keep swinging back and forth on that fence you are going to get splinters in your nuts.

    • Treant

      …too late. Unfortunately, he’s into ball torture.

  • shellback

    And the antidote to a madman in power is not giving him everything he wants.

    • William

      Tranquilizer darts and a straitjacket are also effective.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Now, Lindseybelle…
    I thought you were Trump’s new buttbuddy, playin’ golf with him and all. Now you done gone and turned on him, like milk left out on the verandah on a hot day.

    • Treant

      Lawsa mercy, the milk done gone bad? Isabelle! ISABELLE! Get me my faintin’ couch!

    • safari

      I’m supposed to find buttbuddy offensive but it makes me giggle and feel somewhat aroused.

      • Ben in Oakland

        Aroused by Trump and Lindseybelle? Please call your nearest psychologists– I would suggest about 14 of them all at once– for help.

    • William

      Lindseybelle has left his cake out in the rain.

  • Tomcat

    How to actually drain the swamp. Vote Democrat from now on.

  • bkmn

    Then do something to get rid of him asshole.

    • Tomcat

      By tomorrow he will be sucking up to him again.

  • unsavedheathen

    Senator Lindsey should say these things on FOXNews, not CNN. His words might do some good.

    • Tomcat

      Fox requires them to keep to the script.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    F U- quit voting for his shit then

  • David Walker

    I trust he stomped his little hoof on the marble flooring to put an exclamation point to his remarks.

  • safari
    • -M-

      Yikes. 😳

    • Renfield

      Well, on the plus side, it’s just Koreans that would be killed. Oh a few US troops, as well. Maybe some Japanese as collateral damage. No one the shitgibbon or the GOP cares about. Can the shitgibbon even find the Koreas on a map?

  • boobert

    Just another mush faced idiot. One day he supports him ,the next he criticizes ! Nothing the moron does makes sense.

  • William

    Is the love affair between Donald and Lindseybelle over?

    • safari

      Donald only has enough love for himself.

      • clay

        Poor Lindsey, all alone, again, forever, amen.

        • Tomcat

          Who’s to say he is alone in his closet however?

          • safari

            R. Kelly?

          • David Walker

            I thought it was Sen. McCain. So Lindsey, like the Newt, is whoring around while his loved one has cancer?

          • clay

            “I,” said the Donkey, shaggy and brown.

  • Uncle Mark

    I just don’t know how LindseyBelle can manage to keep voicing her disapproval of Trump, while her quisling mouth is full of his dick.

  • Taylor Bixler

    Was he asked about the awful tax bill at all?

    • Halou

      How convenient that there just happens to be something else to talk about.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    What about socio-economic class warfare, lindsey-belle? Is that ok?

  • Halou

    And he is doing what to rein the Dotard in again?

    Also worsening America’s position in the middle-east is exactly what Trump wants to do, because for every step back that America takes, America’s rivals take a step forward. Namely, Russia. And we’ve just got to get along well with Russia… /s

    I’ve noticed that another symptom of Republican Derangement Disorder is Intermittent Spinal Ankylosis. Too bad it’s intermittent.

  • trouble94114

    Oh good grief, “I think it was very inappropriate for the President of the United States to retweet these videos…” At what point in his presidency has Trump behaved in a manner appropriate to his office. The man is a walking, talking, groping reflection of the worst of America’s anti intellectualism.

  • JCF

    But didn’t Lindsaybelle also say that (contrary to what he said in 2016) Drumpf is “not crazy, not a kook”? [Eff ya, Miss Lindsay!]

  • FiddleDeeDee! What do you mean “I don’t know nuttin “bout retweetin” no fascists!” Sir Donald! Hasn’t anyone taught you the gentlemanly manners of the Charleston GOP Sir?

    Choosing her words carefully, [Theresa May] the prime minister said:
    “I am very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do,” while British diplomats waited in vain for the president to delete the tweets or offer any kind of apology.

    May and other ministers tried to limit the damage by stressing the importance of Britain’s historic links with the US, but an emergency debate in parliament heard MPs from all parties criticise the president on one of the darkest days for the transatlantic “special relationship”.

    Sir Kim Darroch, Britain’s ambassador to the US: https://twitter.com/KimDarroch/status/936239930459787264

    Woody Johnson, appointed US ambassador to the UK by Trump, also said he had raised concerns about Trump’s Britain First tweets with the White House.
    British government officials would like action to be taken as a result of UK diplomats setting out the nature of Britain First to the White House, but stressed the UK was not in a position to make demands that the president delete his tweet, or apologise.
    Officials were eager to underline how forcefully the UK had made its points to the White House, but clearly the UK does not want to get locked into a stand-off with the president. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/30/theresa-may-not-afraid-to-criticise-donald-trump
