Talk about a coarseness in our politics.
With the slobbering media in an uproar because President Donald Trump criticized their messiah, Barack Obama, saying his predecessor “lost” Crimea by failing to stop Russia from annexing the region, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., appeared on CNN to stand by the president and declared he doesn’t “give a sh*t” who likes it. On live TV.
As the interview was coming to a close, CNN host Kate Bolduan noted how Graham went from “hating” the president and making fun of him to working with him, before asking if he trusted Trump.
Graham countered that he “likes” Trump and can be an ally to the president at a time when he needs allies.
And he stressed that he would not be deterred by those don’t like it — aka the liberal media.
“When I worked with President Obama — and I did on occasion — I was a hero,” the Republican lawmaker said. “Now when I work with President Trump, I’m two-faced.”
“I know how the game’s played and I don’t give a damn,” Graham added. “I’m going to do what’s best for the country, I like the President, I want to help him, I hope he’s successful, he’s been a friend to me and he says some things I don’t agree with. So if you don’t like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don’t give a sh*t.”
