Embattled Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has desperately sought to raise money after outrage over his decision to violate his vow and force through the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
In September, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee went on “Fox and Friends” to beg for campaign donations.
Graham complained that his opponent, Jaime Harrison, “raised $6 million from the time Justice Ginsburg passed away, within 72 hours and God bless Justice Ginsburg. We’re celebrating her life. I appreciate waiting ’til Saturday to announce her replacement. But I am being killed financially. This money is because they hate my guts.”
Later that same day, Graham repeated his groveling on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program.
“Help me, they’re killing me moneywise,” Graham begged, noting he had also asked for donations during the same show only days earlier.
Two days later, Graham appeared on the Fox News program “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“Democrats try to destroy Judge Barrett at their own peril. Their base is going nuts. They’ve raised $300 million, ActBlue has, since the passing of Justice Ginsburg,” Graham complained. “Help me and others — LindseyGraham.com — I hate to keep saying that but just the money is overwhelming.”
Graham kept up his routine as the election approached.
Oh this is so pathetic

Anthony Scaramucci: ‘Trump is really losing it psychologically’
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci on Tuesday suggested that President Donald Trump is suffering mental problems after losing the 2020 election.
"Trump is really losing it, psychologically," Scaramucci wrote on Twitter. "His followers don’t get that being a 'loser' is just about as bad as actual death to him."
"He is now a 'loser' in his daddy’s eyes," he added. "All he can do is act out. I wonder how it will end."

Rick Wilson and George Conway hilariously ridicule the GOP’s attempt to save Georgia’s Senate seats as Trump implodes
Conservative attorney George Conway -- who is married to former Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway -- made an appearance on GOP consultant Rick Wilson's "The New Abnormal" podcast on Tuesday, where the two Lincoln Project founders wondered whether the president really wants the Republican Party to hang onto the two Georgia Senate seats headed for a run-off in January after he went down to defeat in the state.
The trio started off the Daily Beast podcast with a hilarious dramatic reading of the Washington Post's bombshell report about the president's inability to comprehend how he lost the election, with Conway laughing at the mention of Trump's "fragile mental state."
