Humiliating CNN supercut shows Lindsey Graham’s evolution from Trump critic to Trump toady

Published

on

CNN on Monday noted the curious evolution in Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has transformed from a staunch critic of President Donald Trump into one of his most reliable toadies.

During a discussion of Trump’s latest insult of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), CNN’s John King noted that Graham put out a statement praising McCain’s legacy and service to his country, while never once calling out Trump personally for continuing to insult him even after his death last year.

Later in the segment, King played a supercut showing the way Graham has changed his tune about Trump over the years — and it was not a flattering picture for the senator.

“Just stop being a jackass,” Graham said of Trump in July 2015. “You don’t have to run for president and be the world’s biggest jackass.”

“He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” Graham said of Trump later that year.

“I think he’s a kook,” Graham said in February 2016. “I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office.”

By November 2017, however, Graham had done a complete 180-degree turn.

“What concerns me about the American press is this endless, endless attempt to label the guy some kind of kook, not fit to be president,” Graham said.

“I like the president, I want to help him, I hope he’s successful, he’s been a friend to me,” Graham said in June 2018.

Don Lemon notes the GOP panic after their own witnesses gave testimony harming Trump: ‘Worried much?’

Published

on

CNN anchor Don Lemon explained how witnesses called by Republicans in the impeachment inquiry destoryed the defenses employed by President Donald Trump and his allies.

"Now, let's just be honest, the shakedown -- that's exactly what it is -- the shakedown is exposed, people," Lemon said.

"And the evidence comes from the Republican's own witnesses," he noted. "The former envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker -- who resigned just one day after the release of the whistleblower's report -- telling the president's defenders exactly what they did not want to hear."

"They called him apparently expecting him to say what he said in his closed-door testimony, that he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo, or let's call it for what it is again -- a shakedown," he continued. "Well, now he says he was wrong."

NSC aide Morrison flounders as lawmaker asks why he reported Trump’s phone call if he didn’t think it was a big deal

Published

At the impeachment hearings on Tuesday, National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn't believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) asked him why he reported the call to government lawyers, he had no answer.

"You responded to a series of questions about the call and saw nothing wrong with it, yet you skipped your chain of command to go to legal counsel to find out — I guess to find out what to do, because you were concerned about the political fallout, not about anything being appropriate or wrong with the call, is that correct?" asked Demings.

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.
