Lindsey Graham Melts Down And Blames Obama For Police Brutality

Lindsey Graham Blames Obama for Police Brutality

At a Senate Republican press conference introducing their version of a policing bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham claimed none of this is Trump’s fault and blamed Obama.

Graham said, “I’m getting a little tired of being lectured to by my Democratic colleagues that all of this is Trump’s fault. You had eight years under President Obama. The Justice and Policing Act none of it was taken up virtually. Let’s knock that off. You’re making no points with me, trying to suggest that we’re bad and y’all are not when it comes to this issue. You had eight years, no attempts to ban chokeholds, no attempts to do any of the things we all agree we need to do now. If you want to fight about that, let’s fight. If you want to admit that the country needs to move on together, let’s do it.” read more
