Lindsey Graham exposed as ‘the most shameless man’ in US politics in brutal supercut video

Published

on

The Intercept’s Mehdi Hasan has put together a brutal video showing the two dramatically different faces worn by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before President Donald Trump got elected, and after he got elected.

Hasan, who labels Graham “the most shameless man in American politics,” argues that Graham has made by far the most dramatic change of any Trump-skeptical Republican since the president’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“There’s no position he won’t abandon, no U-turn he won’t perform, no lie that he won’t tell,” he said.

Hasan then proceeds to show footage of Graham scolding reporters for calling Trump a “kook” or a racist — before cutting to footage of Graham denouncing Trump in exactly those terms.

“He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” Graham said at one point.

Hasan then accuses Graham of lying under oath when he swore to be a fair and impartial juror at the president’s impeachment trial, despite saying just weeks earlier that no one should see him as an impartial juror.

He also hammers Graham for saying that he would need to see evidence of a crime before voting to remove Trump from office, even though he said no crime was required to impeach former President Bill Clinton in 1999.

“Impeachment is about cleansing the office!” he told the Senate more than 20 years ago.

“The office that needs cleansing most,” quips Hasan. “Is the office of the senior senator from South Carolina.”

Paul Krugman issues dire warning about next four months under Trump

Published

In his column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman expressed dismay that -- even with coronavirus infection rates going through the roof across the country --Donald Trump is still acting like the health crisis is over and Americans should return to their normal lives.

Noting that Vice President Mike Pence recently penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal proclaiming, “There Isn’t a Coronavirus ‘Second Wave',” the columnist was gobsmacked by the Trump administration's "delusions and magical thinking that have marked every step of the Trump administration’s response to Covid-19."

‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster

Published

on

On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.

"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.

"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."

“I’d say Republicans are feeling anxious, and there’s a real sense of urgency for the president to precisely define his second term agenda. What are we running on? His answers on that have been lacking and he needs to show people why he wants four more years,” Scott Jennings, a top political adviser in the George W. Bush White House, told the publication.
