According to a new book, Lindsey Graham explained how deeply the Republican Party stood behind Trump by proclaiming that Trump could "kill 50 people on our side" and he still wouldn’t lose any support. It is unclear from the excerpt of the book whether Graham was saying this as a good thing or a bad thing, but based on his behavior towards Trump, it is likely that Graham considers this a positive. Farron Cousins discusses this.

According to a new book that’s due out tomorrow. The book is called the divider Trump in the white house, 2017 to 2021. It’s by reporters, Peter Baker and Susan Glasser. And according to a claim in their new book, Lindsay Graham once said that Donald Trump could kill 50, 50 people on his side and he wouldn’t lose any support. Now, according to the offers, Graham made the claim during Donald Trump’s first impeachment hearing. And he was basically telling them like, this is how deeply entrenched the loyalty to Trump is in the Republican party. Like, it doesn’t matter what he does. We’re all gonna support him apparently. So the quote is exactly he could kill 50 people on our side and it wouldn’t matter. Like that’s the exact quote that the authors say, Lindsay Graham made, he could kill 50, like on their side, he could kill 50 Trump supporters and Republicans would still be like, that’s our guy.
In fact, you know, I, I, I don’t think a lot of liberals would probably object to that either, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is, it’s not that Lindsay Graham said this it’s that he’s right. And I recently actually mentioned in a video that Donald Trump was right when he said he could kill somebody on fifth avenue and not lose a single supporter. And Lindsay Graham is taking it even further. He’s like he could kill 50 people, not just any random people, either he could kill 50 mag aha wearing freaks in this country. He could kill 50 Republican members of Congress and he’s not gonna lose any supporters, not even among the members of Congress who survive the bigger problem too. Not just that Lindsay Graham is right, but that it’s unclear from the excerpt, whether or not Lindsay Graham thinks that’s a good thing or a bad thing, you know, based on Lindsay Graham’s, you know, interactions with Trump, it would stand a reason that Lindsay Graham think that’s a thinks that’s a good thing because that first impeachment trial of course, was in 2019.
By that point, when Graham made the claim, he was deep, deep, deep in Donald Trump’s pocket. You know, I’d like to use another expression there, but let’s just say in his pocket, he was golfing with him all the time. They were, you know, inseparable, best buddies. John McCain was dead. Lindsay Graham didn’t have to worry about making him mad anymore. He was in Trump’s pocket when he made this statement. So it stands to reason that Graham was saying, this is a good thing. Like, Hey, Trump could kill 50 of us. He could shoot me in the head and I’d still love him. And then Lindsay Graham also added and language warning here, cuz I’m not gonna censor it. He described Trump according to the authors as a quote, lying. But nonetheless, he was quote, a lot of fun to hang out with. And
That’s all Lindsay Grahams ever cared about. Right? Hitching yourself on like a remora on a shark, looking for some scraps to somebody far more powerful than you. That’s what he did with John McCain. That’s what he ended up doing with Donald Trump. Even though he initially hated him, said, if we nominate Trump, we will get crushed and deserve it. And then there he is couple years later saying, Hey, this guy could kill anybody he wants and we’re not gonna stop supporting him. We’re gonna make sure he stays president. Yeah. Even if he murders people. So that’s who Lindsay Graham is. He is Theora of the Republicans in the Senate trying to latch himself on to whatever powerful being comes, swimming by in the hopes of getting a couple scraps or in Lindsay Graham’s case. As he says, having a lot of fun hanging out with him, that’s who Lindsay Graham is.
