Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has been one of the biggest Trump suck-ups over the past four years. Though he was critical of Trump in the 2016 primaries, the South Carolina Senator quickly pivoted to Trump’s side once it became clear who was in charge of the Republican Party. Graham even went so far as to back Trump’s bogus voter fraud claims after he lost reelection. Only after the insurrection at the Capitol last week did Graham tell fellow lawmakers that “enough is enough” and that he would be voting to certify Joe Biden’s election win.
Last week, Graham was accosted by Trump supporters at the Washington DC airport. His years of bootlicking were not good enough, as he became just the next Trump loyalist to be thrown under the bus once no longer needed. Now Graham is desperate to avoid having to vote on impeachment. He went on Fox News and argued that President-elect Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should not move to impeach Trump as it will just tear the country apart even more. Graham’s concern isn’t actually about the country, but rather himself and his party. He knows that voting on Trump’s impeachment and conviction is really bad for him and Republicans either way.
