South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham believes former President Donald Trump needs to “get over” the 2020 presidential election, lest he lose all of his political clout.

“What I say to him is, do you want January the 6th to be your political obituary? Because if you don’t get over it, it’s going to be,'” he told The New York Times in an interview published Saturday.

The remarks were presumably referencing the former president’s continued insistence that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged.”

His focus on the 2020 election had been exceptionally high in recent days because of MyPillow founder Mike Lindell’s “cyber symposium,” an event last week in which data analysts were challenged to disprove the theory that the election was “rigged.”

Because Fox News reportedly chose to not air any footage from the symposium, the president issued a statement Wednesday slamming the network.

“Fox doesn’t understand that it is missing a rating bonanza by not covering the 2020 Election Fraud, the Crime of the Century, which is being exposed throughout many states on a daily basis. They are also doing a disservice to our Country. People have turned them off!” he said.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, his chief spokesperson, Liz Harrington, kept posting clips from the then-live event.

As for Graham, it’s not clear why the Republican senator chose to play nice with the Times, a far-left paper that’s in the business of propping up the Democrat Party’s agenda and smearing Republicans.

Just consider the stunningly derogatory headline of the Times’ piece: “Tap Dancing With Trump: Lindsey Graham’s Quest for Relevance.”

The entire piece is full of scorn for him and, most importantly, for the conservative values he’s supposed to represent.

“Mr. Graham has become an ever-more-frequent face on Fox, denying the existence of systemic racism and decrying federal aid to Black farmers as ‘reparations.’ He posted a video of himself firing an AR-15 bought as protection from marauding ‘gangs’ and forcefully backed Ms. Cheney’s expulsion from House leadership,” one section reads.

The underlying implication is that he’s a racist for not believing the far-left’s dubious narratives about race.

“He has embraced the culture-war grandstanding that he and Mr. McCain mocked when they were a team — recently saying he would ‘go to war’ against students at the University of Notre Dame for trying to block a Chick-fil-A on campus over the anti-L.G.B.T.-rights politics of its executives,” another section reads.

The implication here is that he’s homophobic for standing up for a private business whose owners have dared to be proud Christians.

However, after slamming Graham for paragraph after paragraph after paragraph, the piece starts to offer him a path to redemption by praising him for doing things that benefit the Times’ preferred party, the Democrat Party.

“Yet there are signs Mr. Graham may be playing an inside-outside game. He has placed himself at the center of a months long effort to draft bipartisan police-reform legislation and recently met with the Rev. Al Sharpton to hear him out on the bill,” the piece reads.

“He voted for Mr. Biden’s infrastructure bill (and got censured for doing so by the Republican Party in Aiken County, S.C.). And when he tested positive for Covid-19 after being inoculated, he made a point of telling vaccine deniers in his own party to get their shots.”

Perhaps this is why he chose to sit with the Times — for forgiveness, redemption and salvation from the Democrat Party?
