Liberals continue to speculate about the sexual orientation of Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., wielding their conjecture almost as a club in an effort to bully the lawmaker into capitulating to their agenda.

An effort that’s clearly not having much success.

The latest example of the fixation on the 63-year-old bachelor’s love life was seen in an article in The Washington Blade titled, “Meet D.C.’s Most Eligible LGBT Singles.”

The piece featured 20 eligible singles in the LGBT community, and did not mention Graham at all.

Neither did a tweet highlighting the article.

But, too clever by half, The Blade put Sen. Graham’s mug on the cover of newspapers sold on the street according to The Daily Caller.


Emblazoned in bold letters across Graham’s forehead was the title, “Meet D.C.’s Most Eligible LGBT Singles.”

Pushing the envelope, a sub-headline read, “Sen. Lindsey Graham didn’t quite make the cut.”

Never mind that this was all very misleading, as mentioned before, Graham appears nowhere in the article, the subtle message was delivered.

The paper included Graham in a different piece, published on Saturday — titled, “Is It Homophobic To Speculate About A Politician’s Sexuality?”

The article discusses whether or not it’s ethical to “out” politicians, with author James Wellemeyer seemingly implying that if the individual has “done no harm” to the LGBT community, outing them is not advisable.

Outing as a political tactic and as a general practice remain controversial. Most agree that revealing the sexual orientation of an individual who has done no harm to the LGBT community is unethical. In some cases, outing can even subject LGBT people to physical danger.


The left has long been fixated on Graham’s sexual orientation — on National Coming Out Day in October, unhinged liberal Chelsea Handler tagged the Republican.

“If you’re wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it’s probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay. Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC,” she tweeted.

How’s that for an indication of the tolerance of the left? The smear came right after the heated confirmation hearing for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, leaving little doubt that Handler was trying to inflict damage on Graham, who took the lead in seeing Kavanaugh appointed.

Graham was unperturbed when asked by a TMZ cameraman to respond to the hate-filled tweet.

“It’s a free country; she can say what she wants to say, I don’t care,” he said. “I don’t think much about what she says at all — she wants to live her life that way, it’s up to her.”

He then addressed the insinuation that he was gay.

“Number one, she knows zero about me. To the extent that it matters, I’m not gay,” he said. “And these comments, I don’t think they reflect well on her and I don’t know how it makes us a better country, but it’s up to her, not me.”

As for the type of person Handler is, there’s not much to be discussed ( LANGUAGE WARNING):
