Dear Commons Community,
CNN’s Brianna Keilar had a seven-minute segment (see video above) yesterday skewering Lindsey Graham for the way he has become a lapdog for Donald Trump. Keilar reviews in detail Graham’s change.
“There’s something about Trump. There’s a dark side and there’s some magic there. What I’m trying to do is harness the magic,” Graham told Axios’ Jonathan Swan.
“The only magic there is watching the Lindsey Graham we once knew disappear,” said Keilar, noting how Graham’s 2015 attacks on Trump transformed into adulation of the president once he’d moved into the White House.
“Trump isn’t a magician. He’s a carnival barker, whipping up an audience for a one-man circus,” she added. “Donald Trump has only ever acted in the interest of one thing, himself.”
I never was a Graham fan mainly because I didn’t agree with his hawkish positions, however, I thought he represented Republican Party values well. The Graham we have seen in the past year sniveling at Donald Trump’s feet is a disgrace. Keilar tells it like it is!
