If you recall, Lindsey Graham is known for the statement:
“The demographics race we’re losing badly. We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”
Now that his party has become the exact demographic he wanted, Donald Trump is leading in the GOP polls, and poor Lindsey Graham has the sadz. In an interview with CNN:
Graham chalked Trump’s lead up to a “dark side of politics that Mr. Trump is appealing to.” He said Trump is channeling the same Republican primary voters who believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya.
“He is shallow, he is ill-prepared to be commander-in-chief, he doesn’t know what he is talking about in terms of how our laws work, he says the worst things possible about immigrants and women, and he’s a complete idiot when it comes to Mideast policy…
Luckily he specified he was was talking about Donald Trump, because the above description could fit any one of the GOP’s 2016 candidates. Graham added:
“So I think over time, common sense will prevail.”
Does he really. For the past 7 years, Lindsey Graham and his party have said and done nothing to inform their voters or improve their lives. They have stoked the GOP fires of racism, bigotry, and misogyny, while governing through blatant dishonesty. They’ve been happy to let their voters’ uneducated anger fester and grow.
It is Conservatives who have driven the wedge deeper and deeper into this country; now it has blown up in their face with Donald Trump’s candidacy. They have no message, they have no plan, and now they’ve lost any shred of legitimacy.
This is the party you asked for, Senator Graham:
Are you happy now?
