Donald Trump Lindsey Graham, Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham Effortle discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
Being a jackass. You don't have to run for president and be the world's biggest jackass that was twenty fifteen and he was talking, of course, about Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham is a changed, man. He now worships at the altar of Donald Trump more fervently than most Republican senators and to do that Lindsey Graham had to change in more ways than one and publicly humiliated himself, which he has done repeatedly for Donald Trump after this break, we will show you Lindsey grams latest humiliation of Lindsey Graham. Remember when Lindsey Graham couldn't stop saying jackass, it was wound. Donald Trump was running for president. You know, run for president. But don't be the world's biggest jackass. What's the reaction? You're getting to calling him jackass now repeatedly a lot of people in fin jackasses or offended. So all locked Lockton say is that it I've had it come on head. Lindsey Graham was telling the truth about the jackass thing. But he wasn't telling the truth when he said, I've had it. In fact, Lindsey Graham was ready to take a lot more from the jackass. It turns out the jackass phase was just something Lindsey Graham had to go through on his way to worshiping Donald Trump and humiliating himself in the process because before Lindsey Graham became a Trump worshiper he said things like this. He's a race baiting Zena phobic religious big. He doesn't represent my party doesn't represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform funding for he's an opportunist. He's not fit to be president United States. Now don't think s the temperament of judgment to be commander and chief. I think he's a Kook. I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office. And here's what Lindsey Graham had to say about Donald Trump tonight. I'm all in to the extent that can help this president. I will so Lindsey Graham effortle- goes from I've had it with Donald Trump to I'm all in with Donald Trump Lindsey Graham goes from he's a race baiting xenophobic religious big at not fit to be president of the United States. I think he's a Kook I think he's crazy too. I'm all in. So who's the world's biggest jackass now today Lindsey Graham met with the president who he said is crazy and not fit to be president of the United States. And according to Lindsey Graham, he gave the president some advice about how to handle the now multiple investigations into the presence activities. A Bloomberg report says Graham said he told Trump to quote, listen to his lawyers fightback appropriately. But just keep your head down and keep doing your job challenge them to fix problems. President Clinton was a pretty good model Clinton kept his focus on being present. So now Clinton was a pretty good model when he was under investigation. It turns out if your patient Lindsey Graham will refuse. Just about everything Lindsey Graham has ever said as a member of the House Judiciary committee at the time Lindsey Graham served as one of the prosecutors in these Senate impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton. This is what he said the standard should be for removing a president from office. So the point I'm trying to make is you don't even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job and this constitutional Republic at this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role. Thank god. You did that. Because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office impeachment is about restoring honor in integrity to the office. Unfortunately, for Lindsey Graham there is no Senate process for restoring the auditor, honor and integrity of Lindsey Graham. That's tonight's last word.
