Saturday morning Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) indicated that he was on board with replacing the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “without delay” as requested by Donald Trump.
Graham, who previously stated “I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination,” now seems to have had an unsurprising change of heart.
Saturday he wrote, “I fully understand where President @realDonaldTrump is coming from,” while linking to the president’s tweet.
Needless to say, Graham’s about hypocrisy and about-face was duly noted on Twitter — and not in a flattering way as you can see below:
I thought you consider yourself a man of faith &principal. You were one of the Rep I loved & respected If you would’ve won the nomination I may have voted for you. I don’t know what happened to you in the last four years but it’s sad you let the country you claim to love down.

Hey, Lindsey Graham! Isn't this you in 2018, saying the opposite you fucking hypocrite?

Vote Jamie Harrison. Lindsey Graham is not a man of his word. He is a coward and a cuck. #jamieharrison

So is this you saying you’re not going to honor your word from before?

You also fully understand that he owns you – and that you’ve abandoned any notion that you’ve ever had an ounce of honor or integrity – truly sad to watch.

If the republicans do this I will never vote GOP again in my life.

We fully understand that your word means NOTHING!!!
It's all about what benefits YOU at any particular time.
We are therefore using your words against you… !!!
Ruth's last wish (please call her grand daughter to confirm)
was that she NOT be replaced until after the election

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies
Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.
While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
‘You’re free to go’: CNN’s Lemon tells Trump after president spends weeks complaining about going to rallies
President Donald Trump has spent the last several days at rallies complaining about how much he hates being there and how much he hates being president.
CNN's Don Lemon played clips of the rally airing of grievances.
"I probably bottom be standing out here in the freezing rain with you," Trump complained while in Lansing, Michigan. "I would be home in the White House doing whatever the hell I was doing. I wouldn't be out here."
"We win Wisconsin, we win the whole ball game," Trump told a crowd in Janesville, Wisconsin last week. "What the hell do you think I'm doing here on a freezing night with 45-degree wind? What do you think? Do you think I'm doing this for my health? I'm not doing this for my health."
Trump’s new favorite X-ray doctor is retweeting demands Dr. Fauci debate him
President Donald J. Trump selected radiologist Scott William Atlas as his newest health care policy advisor on the White House Coronavirus Task Force this past August after a public fallout with immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. The two scholars could not be any more different on their approach to mitigating the pandemic, which has so far killed over 227,000 Americans.
"If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality," Fauci said recently during a University of Melbourne panel.
