Sunday Talks: Lindsey Graham Discusses Campaigning Against Colleagues…

Senator Lindsey Graham 2.0 appears on Fox News with swamp gatekeeper Chris Wallace to discuss the Justice Kavanaugh confirmation and the upcoming elections.  [*As with all things swampy, caution is advised until the 2.0 operating system is fully validated.]

One of the more interesting takeaways from this interview is a shift in perspective for Senator Graham 2.0 where he says he will now campaign against senate colleagues who joined in the smear campaign against the Supreme Court nominee.

    Welcome aboard the MAGA train Mr Graham! Hopefully, he now understands the frustration we’ve had with him for years…

    The Never Trumpers still have to prove themselves. I’m still skeptical. President Trump told us, at a rally this week, that Lindsey Graham has been a friend for 6 months. POTUS is skeptical as well.

      Actually, what’s funnier, and I think it was on LastRefuge2’s twitter yesterday, with the same picture of Lindsey straightening his tie with the woman in background screeching, but it was photoshopped so that Creepy Uncle Joe Biden was kissing her. Now that was a priceless 2.0. Looking forward to Biden’s 2020 run. We have the videos and photos on Creepy Uncle Joe, including Sessions’ pulling his grandkids away from Uncle Joe.

    Don’t be fooled, folks (about Graham) . Once a snake always a snake.

    With the S.C. nominee , Bush supported Kev! Bush called Senators the last week to make sure he got elected. So Graham was doing his “act” to stop the Dems smear campaign, and forward Bush Mobs agenda. That it aligned with Trump was what it appeared to be “pro-Trump” , but it is not. Graham has to think about his S.C. base, so he just gives the appearance of “support of Trump agenda”. It is all fake. Graham is a snake, and he has sweet words … to appear “friendly” but watch out you don’t put him too close to Trump or give him AG spot or any “close spot”.

    Like many, last week , I also thought it was amazing the change in Graham, but new info came out about the Bush push to get Kav on S.C. … so … Graham had his own agenda, … to support Bush Mob and try to get closer to Trump so Graham can in the future stab him in the back. Trump is very AWARE of all this, so we don’t have to worry about Graham. Trump knows the score.

      I agree that Graham is not to be trusted, but, Graham’s outrage over the Democrats’ criminal smears is not a baby to be thrown out with the bathwater. That baby is like gold in the bank. Treasure every second of it, and be wary of Graham 2.1

      Actually I’m surmising that the Bush push came from not Dubya but Laura.
      I think Laura Bush is a good decent lady and she has known the Kavs for decades. I believe Mrs Kav is equally a good decent lady and Laura couldn’t stand watching what was happening to her and her girls.
      I believe Laura told Dubya to get in there and help out and not let this happen.

      Likewise, Graham 2.0 has also know Kav for decades and is a close friend. Even the nastiest swamp creatures stand up for their friends.
      Graham’s motive is to help his friend and to send a message that he will stand by his friends. It had nothing to do with helping POTUS, although the appearance of helping POTUS was a bonus for him.

      He KNOWS using that line is gonna have people comparing him to Trump… I mean comparing him as a person. Used to be he would have freaked out even at the thought of being compared to Don. But now Lindsey seems to be embracing it, actually rubbing it in the haters’ faces. So no… this doesn’t feel fake to me at all. Not sure what exactly has caused it, but he seems to have had a come-to-Jesus moment.

    Graham is a politician. he reads which way the winds are blowing and leans with it for his own benefit.
    His previous actions are a testament to that.
    His recent actions are only because it benefitted him politically.
    If Graham was made AG and something happened to Trump, the team of Pence and Graham with the deep state would finish us.
    Let’s not make a icon out of an opportunist.

      The point is what he said and why – the passions expressed in those circumstances. There seems to be a great deal of hand-wringing about who he really is now, but I don’t think that’s terribly important, and who he is ultimately doesn’t bear on what he did anyway. What he did was magnificent, patriotic, almost nation-saving level action. We don’t have to do more than give him credit for what he did, and then encourage him to behave from here on out.

      He gets the Chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee if the Republicans keep the Senate. Grassley is moving over to Finance??–whichever committee Sen. Hatch chairs now. Pres. Trump has the argument he doesn’t want to turn over another Republican Senate seat on a special election. I think Pres. Trump knows he needs someone from the outside with YUGE balls…because you have to have a major personnel policy change or major policy enforcement and/or major firings if you’re to turn this agency around. IMAO, we are screwed again were Lindsey to be appointed AG, and I would write Pres. Trump every day to tell him so.

    The way I see it..
    The Trump movement to elect him President was a bit of a gamble, at least for many, but the bet paid off. He could do even better if/when he has a majority in the Senate. (and held the House) For that reason alone, the “Deplorables” should vote for Republicans in the midterms. I know “Republicans” are not necessarily Trump assets.. but better them than DIMS. As a bonus… the DIMS have revealed themselves for what they are. It should be a “no-brainer” to NOT vote for a DIM, even an individual you may like, because that gives POWER the DIM GANG generally.

    Absolutely LOVE your take on Graham, Sundance. It’s a little too soon to know for sure, but we MAY be seeing a real transformation. I agree that until we see more evidence, it’s wise to not completely start trusting him. But at the same time, I totally disagree with those here who don’t want to give the guy a chance. They claim Lindsey is just taking it. Well, I don’t know if he’ll revert back to his old ways (I don’t believe he will), but one thing I DO know is… What we saw from him in that hearing was NOT fake. It was real, from the heart. And then some other stuff since. I don’t see anything wrong with us hoping for the best. NOT to the point of being naive and not keeping an eye on him for awhile… but should we be happy with what we’re seeing so far, and WELCOME him home if he really has had an epiphany? OH YEAH.

      Yes, it was real. It’s so rare today that it grabs you and doesn’t let go. The very fact that there’s so much discussion and even major teeth-gnashing about it is testament to how it shook the foundations of the Senate. This was epic, and Graham’s passionate rant should rank with the greatest political outbursts of all time in Congress.

      That was a really weird moment. If I had to guess, I’d say it was the Hillary/Obama gang trying to make Graham look bad. Trying to make it appear that he was in cahoots with them. After all, if he’s that close to Huma, he MUST be a Hillbot and co-conspirator against Trump. But fortunately for Lindsey, Kelly and Mattis are not stupid, and I think they realized what was going on quicker than Graham did.

        It was a FUNERAL!!! I would not read anything more into it than that.

        Katrina Pierson hung all over me for pictures (that she wanted me to put online, which I don’t do) outside an elevator in the Marriott after the primary Victory rally in Spartenburg, SC. There is nothing going on between us.

        BTW- the SD card in the phone failed, so the pictures never saved. And the Verizon cloud lost or never uploaded my pictures of [Lisa] Kennedy [Montgomery] posing with me at the Inauguration Ball.

    Lindsay Graham 2.0- is he the real deal? Or still a swamp creature? We will not know for a while yet. However, he has been very eloquent and let’s face it, this is the first time the old staid GOP felt the wrath, the absolute lunacy that PDJT has been battling from the very beginning! Up until now, very few issues intersected with what PDJT was trying to achieve. Up until the Brett Kavanaugh smear campaign. Can the staid GOP (mostly Senators), finally get some perspective and join the Trump train? did the blinders come off of Grassley and McConnell and some of the others? At the very least, let’s hope they won’t lie down and keep taking the lies and abuse from the crazy left. At least Graham will fight back, and that’s a a good person to have yell the battle cry! And there’s his excellent sense of humor, we all need a dose of that too…

      “…excellent sense of humor.” I was thinking today how important “personality” is for those running for office or in office. Combine the warrior spirit with a sense of humor and you have a winning combination. I’ll take any person who is willing to fight right now. President Trump has his eye on them—always. And so do we. I plan to enjoy them while they’re on the train. If they jump off, they’re toast!!😁

    It’s amazing to see how much Lindsay Graham is more like his old self again since the evil McCain’s death. Like a great weight has been lifted off him. I really believe McCain had something he was holding over his head. President Trump did say he was going to free all of them. Maybe Kasich was right and he was put to death.

    Brett Kavanaugh is a moderate, not a conservative. The Bushes love him; Romney loves him; RINOs love him. They all pushed for his nomination and confirmation. Moderates think that their fence-sitting and negotiating keeps them safe from the worst of the dem lunacy. They saw with this confirmation process that that isn’t the case. Perhaps, just perhaps, they are rethinking some things. If the dems have lost the RINOs, they are done. For me, I’m going to enjoy that line of thinking until proven otherwise.

    I will be the FIRST to admit here that I was NO FAN of Lindsey Graham, in fact I was calling for him to retire. I have to say I have seen a HARD SHIFT in the republican party over the last year, not just in Senator Graham, in Mitch McConnell too. It has been a lot more noticeable in Graham, I do listen to Quite Frankly & he has pointed out McConnell’s “trolling” skills.. they are subtle but they are there & once you notice them, it is easy to pick them up more frequently.
    I am still cautious though, like with everything else who knows if this is genuine, but I do have high hopes. And I did watch a video by another person, who did a great before & after of Lindsey Graham showing the difference in his change in attitude. I have to admit one factor I have noticed is McCain is gone, Now I have NO IDEA if this has ANYTHING to do with anything – but when McCain left, that is when I started noticing the difference in MANY of our Republicans. Maybe the guy was a just a bad influence! lol..
    Anyways I am happy with this Lindsey 2.0 and I do hope he sticks around, and he really does seem a lot happier, almost like he is free.. But that is just my opinion.
