Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Friday was filmed running away from a war veteran who tried to talk with him about President Donald Trump’s impeachable conduct.
In a video posted by progressive veterans organization Common Defense, a man who identifies himself as an Iraq War veteran from Louisiana calmly walks up to Graham and tells the senator that he believes that he’s being treated unfairly by the media.
“I believe that you honestly believe in our democracy as I do,” the man tells him.
“I do,” Graham replies.
“I came here to D.C. because I’m a Marine, I went to Iraq, and I believe, as I believe that you do, that President Trump is not acting in accordance to his oath,” the veteran continued. “The oath that you took and I did to defend the Constitution.”
At this point, Graham starts to stammer and the veteran implores him to listen.
“You took an oath!” he said.
“Yeah I did, I don’t agree with you, I gotta go,” Graham says before promptly rushing into his office.
Watch the video below.
This guy isn't yelling or shouting. He isn't being unreasonable. He simply tries to find common ground with @LindseyGrahamSC.

White House sidelining medical experts for ‘too much focus on public health’: AP reporter
President Donald Trump and other White House officials are reportedly tuning out public health experts -- who they believe are "deep state Democrats" who aren't working against the president's re-election.
The Washington Post reported that officials with the Centers for Disease Control are feeling pressure from the president to sign off on reopening schools and businesses despite dire coronavirus risks, and Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that's what he's hearing, as well.
‘Betrayal’: Trump fuming over Brett Kavanaugh voting with majority in tax return cases
According to Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, Donald Trump is reportedly focusing his ire on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, along with Neil Gorsuch, for siding with the majority of justices who ruled on Thursday that the state of New York must be given his tax returns as part of a criminal investigation.
Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" with co-host Willie Geist, Lemire was asked how the president -- and the White House -- are reacting to the setback for the president.
"You're at the White House, it's either a witch hunt or a big win depending on who you ask," host Geist began. "[Trump attorney] Jay Sekulow is also calling it a win. The president doesn't want his tax returns, financial records to see the light of day particularly before election day. What's the concern now with the two 7-2 decisions?"
