Peter Doocy tried to push Lindsey Graham's fake Build Back Better CBO score, which allowed Jen Psaki to blow it to bits.
Chris Wallace went out with a bang as he called out Sen. Lindsey Graham for lying about the Trump tax cuts.
Speaker Pelosi unloaded on Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for coming up with a CBO score for a Build Back Better bill that doesn't exist.
Fulton County, Georgia prosecutors are said to be imminently impaneling a special grand jury to investigate Trump for election interference.
Speaking to Fox News, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C. said his personal relationship with President Joe Biden hit a “breaking point” following the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal in the wake of the Taliban seizing power.
As of right now, despite all of his troubles, Donald Trump is still he figurehead of the Republican party. In order to stay there, however, he is not only going to need to avoid trouble, he is going to have prove he can get Republicans elected.
The Delta variant has created a major issue for residents of all states, but especially those who have a Trumpian Republican governor. And rather than trying to use this moment to encourage vaccinations, many Conservative pundits have chosen to keep referring to COVID as no big deal.
In the run-up to the January 6th insurrection, Lindsey Graham did plenty to help Donald Trump spread misinformation. The South Carolina senator went as far as to call Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to inquire about the state‘s vote count.
Donald Trump lost the presidential election in 2020. The GOP was also unable to take the house and lost control of the senate in January. Most people watching would realize that Trump was a drag on the party, especially in the suburbs.
Over the last 15 months, the US has been gripped by the worst pandemic in 100 years. The COVID-19 virus caused many businesses to be shuttered and put millions of Americans out of work.
The economy is quickly recovered, but there are many people in the country that still need help. To that end, most states expanded their unemployment benefits. Republican lawmakers are claiming that these benefits are preventing people from going back to work. Lindsey Graham took it a step further Tuesday claiming that he has family members that “ain’t working.”
Lindsey Graham has rarely shown any kind of backbone since Donald Trump took over the Republican party. He was fiercely opposed to Trump during the 2016 primary but is now one of his biggest enablers.
And the former president is still obsessed with the claim that he was cheated out of the 2020 election. And his message certainly resonates with those who support the GOP. According to a recent poll, 67% of Republican voters don’t believe that Biden was the winner of the most recent election.
A long, long time ago, Lindsey Graham was seen as a senator willing to make deals on both sides of the aisle. But the South Carolina senator is now very far away from those days.
Graham, more than perhaps any other prominent Republican lawmaker, is all in on Donald Trump. He recently said that the party can’t even move forward without Trump at its head.
Over the last 20 years, the United States has experienced a number of mass shootings. 2021 has been no different. There have been high-profile massacres in both Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado.
And the responses to the mass shootings have followed the usual script. Democrats use the incidents to call for common sense gun controls. And Republicans clutch their pearls and claim that if assault weapons are banned, Americans will have no way to defend themselves.
On Monday, the United States suffered yet another mass shooting. The gunman in the Boulder, Colorado incident was armed with a Ruger AR-556.
As is the norm when a mass shooting occurs, Democrats called for common sense gun reform. Like the stimulus bill, gun control is not only popular with Democratic voters. Polls regularly show support for expanded gun control in the 80’s or 90’s.
Donald Trump would very much like to be the future of the Republican party. He certainly has a lot of support. 43 senators just voted to acquit him during his impeachment trial. Over 150 congresspeople decided to join in on his election fight.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has refused a call to hold a quick confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland, who President Joe Biden has nominated to serve as the nation’s attorney general. Garland’s hearing is scheduled for February 8.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough criticized Senators Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) for downplaying the January 6 storming of the United States Capitol, which took place after former President Donald Trump urged his supporters to march on Congress in a bid to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The president’s supporters were egged on by the president’s claims of widespread election fraud, which has debunked by news outlets, government agencies, and independent observers alike.
Senate Republicans are now gearing up to acquit Trump in an impeachment trial on the specious rationale that putting a former officeholder on trial is unconstitutional, even though legal scholars, including some from the conservative Federalist Society, have broadly affirmed the constitutionality of such a proceeding.
When Donald Trump was seeking the Republican nomination in 2016, Lindsey Graham delivered a warning to his party. “If we nominate Donald Trump,” the South Carolina senator tweeted, “we will get destroyed and we will deserve it.”
It took quite a while for his prediction to come to pass, but it seems to be coming true. The GOP is splitting into a pro-Trump faction and an anti-Trump faction. Mitch McConnell seemingly believes that Trump is hurting the party and may vote to convict him.
McConnell’s turn against Trump has, of course, enraged many of the ex-President’s staunchest supporters. This includes Trump super-fan Lou Dobbs. Dobbs lit into McConnell during his Thursday show.
Speaking of the senate minority leader, the Fox Business host began, “
I wish he’d have thought of that first. It would be the least that President Trump should have been able to expect from a leader of the House of Representatives. Or, for that matter, the leader of the Senate for the Republicans, Mitch McConnell.”
Following the November election, Donald Trump essentially stopped doing his job. And it was a bad time to stop as the coronavirus had raged out of control for the last two months. The ex-President ignored the crisis, preferring to complain about imaginary election fraud.
Joe Biden, however, has made getting COVID-19 vaccines into American arms his number one priority. Today, Team Biden introduced a plan to combat the coronavirus and Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke to reporters.
Amazon, seeing how serious Biden is treating the pandemic, has offered to help with logistics. On Thursday, Lindsey Graham blasted the company for not making the same offer to Donald Trump.
Graham made the comments to Fox News Sandra Smith. She asked him, “if it turns out that Jeff Bezos and Amazon put politics ahead of public health, should there be some sort of accountability there?”
