One day after expressing concern that the Trump administration might have been aware of an offer by the Russians to pay a bounty for the murder of U.S. military members by terrorists, the South Carolina Republican was seen heading out for a round of golf with the embattled president.
Following the bombshell report from the New York Times, Graham tweeted, “Imperative Congress get to the bottom of recent media reports that Russian GRU units in Afghanistan have offered to pay the Taliban to kill American soldiers with the goal of pushing America out of the region.”
Those concerns didn’t seem to be enough for Graham to keep his distance from the president who was implicated in the report, with CNN’s Kaitlan Collin’s tweeting, “Dressed for golf, President Trump just left the White House with Sen. Lindsey Graham.”
That, naturally, set off Twitter users wondering what the two would be talking about on the greens with one commenter labeling it “Treason on the links.”

We can only speculate how terrible the blackmail must be to support this level of betrayal.

Treason on the Links should be the title of @LindseyGrahamSC memoirs.

Oh great. I’m sure the answers the country needs are out on the links.

Lindsey is telling him to knock it off or he won’t be re-elected. This is the way he gets his attention

Graham will come back swearing Trump didn't know about the bounties and that half a dozen IC & DoD heads must roll. Mark my words.

next tweet from Graham will be defending Trump.

Ah, Trump is going to remind Graham of whatever Kompromat he has on Graham because Graham asked for an investigation into TR34SON.

‘No silver lining, no encouraging trend for the president’: Pollster explains how Joe Biden is beating Trump by 15 points
A polling analyst for the highly-regarded Quinnipiac Poll explained how former Vice President Joe Biden is beating President Donald Trump in the latest survey by a whopping 15 points.
"Independents are a key factor behind Biden's widening lead as they now back him 51 - 34 percent, while in June, independents were split with 43 percent for Biden and 40 percent for Trump," Quinnipiac reports. "There is also some movement among Republicans as they back Trump 84 - 9 percent, compared to 92 - 7 percent in June. Democrats go to Biden 91 - 5 percent, little changed from 93 - 4 percent in June.
