Before I start I want to say that Lindsey Graham is a douche! (I feel better!)
We have all heard about that letter that 47 d/bag Congresspeople decided to sign then send to Iran…..and now with all the backlash staffers are saying that it was a “light-hearted” attempt to amuse……may I please see the hands of the pea brains that buy this excuse?
Continuing on the comedy tact….Graham, who has an eye on running for president, has made a funny….at least according to staffers………
Lindsey Graham is still talking. His latest headline-worthy quote: If he becomes our next president, the very first thing he will do is deploy the military. Against … Congress. “I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this,” he said yesterday at New Hampshire’s “politics and pies” forum, referring to the budget. “I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to. We’re not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We are not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts.”
As Vox notes, the quote implies Graham would use the military to force Congress to actually pass a bill, not simply to vote on one, since his stated goal is to “restore” the cuts. Sounds like a “coup” if taken literally, writes Amanda Taub. And though Graham did, indeed, use the word “literally,” his office later clarified to Mediaite that the senator “was employing over-the-top humor to win over his audience.”
BTW, some are calling Rep. Cotton a traitor for his letter…….but Graham’s tongue is more traitorous than anything Cotton did.
All these funny guys in Congress should maybe QUIT their day jobs and start on the stand-up circuit.
Sorry this is not something humorous that a possible presidential candidate should be saying in public…….am I wrong? At every turn Graham shows there is NO way he can be “A Man of the People”. After that comment would you trust this a/hole to safeguard the Constitution?
How long do I need to keep pointing out that these d/bags in Congress are unworthy of calling themselves Americans, much less a representative of the people?
This also illustrates that NONE of these morons are capable of governing….they are in it for the ego rush…..PERIOD!
