Morning Joe co-hosts ridicule 'sad' Lindsey Graham for groveling to Trump on TV

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts ridiculed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for groveling to former president Donald Trump on television.

The South Carolina Republican told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the former president was "very nice" because "he's allowed me to be in his world," and co-host Willie Geist mocked Graham's obsequious praise.

"First of all, Joe, I want to thank you for letting me into your life, much like Lindsey with Trump," Geist told host Joe Scarborough. "It means the world to me."

Scarborough was momentarily at a loss for words, as co-host Mika Brzezinski giggled.

"Can you imagine saying something like that?" Geist said.

"It's really sad," Brzezinski agreed. "Who says that?"

Scarborough reminded viewers that Graham had denounced Trump the night of the U.S. Capitol insurrection, but fled back to the former president after some of his supporters chastised the senator at an airport.

"Lindsey Graham [is] trying to stay on the right side of the seditionists and Qanon people," Scarborough said. "Three people and a chihuahua chased him through the airport and he completely melted."
