Is the greatest man God ever created Yeah Yeah Oh. That's amazing stuff. And is certainly helpful for the president now. Does anybody care what Lindsey Graham things? Probably not no. Do Anyway Democrats might be swayed by that. Maybe some independence, but I don't care what Lindsey Graham thinks about Donald Trump. Lindsey Graham Moron. We all know that he's been a slightly less of a more on lately than he was before. But, he's still well said more, so he's less of a moron. Slightly less. that. He was in the past, but that's not saying much. You know because he was a really big moron boy Lindsey. We used to have that thing I. Don't know if I still do. Let me see if we still have you're going to do this and. Brought this this. This was one of the things. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war, yeah! The other one we used to play is. Something like I'm clueless. Oh. Yeah, that's clueless, but I. Think we deleted data because. His Lindsey why because Lizzie grams relevant and we never talk about him? Until now. I remember that he is like I'm king of the phone. Call people. Call me all the time and tell me how bad I'm doing my job that. Why do they keep reelecting him?

That's what that was. Well. Anyway Asian Graham knows better than you. It doesn't care and Lindsey Graham. Again, slightly less of a moron right now than he has been in the past, but still a moron on the less. Okay so shouldn't worry about it I. Guess and again no one's concentrating on the campaign right now. Nobody even though we're just. What are we five months away from the election? Holy Cow. Think about that. Yeah four and a half months away from the general election. It's a presidential election. Nobody's even talking about it. Nobody's talking about the upcoming. Conventions, nobody's talking about whether or not. We're GONNA. Do debates between trump and Biden? Nobody's talking about how senile by news right now it's just. This is a great time really for Biden. And when he starts having to defend himself and talk about his policies, then you're going to see people waking up and saying. While! This guy is is not Not The one. This is not the guy know. Maybe this'll be the first. Presidential election season where we have three vice presidential debates in only one presidential debate tm flipped maybe. I think I think it debate between Biden and trump would be really fun though. Can you imagine the fireworks going on there? Well, that's a UFC matches, yes! That is a brass knuckles. Yes, I to to. Pass out is is the loser because those guys I think they'd go at. It physically want to hurt each other. Yeah? I think so well. Biden is threatened to take him up behind the school or something. He's been very threatening. Yes, like he's GonNa. Take him back. Behind some building and beat him up. Okay, Alright bye-bye! That guy, though he's such as he is a hot air. It'll be interesting to see. Once this does heat up in the fall. Because eventually it has to write eventually we've got. I don't know it's twenty we have to. On the campaign eventually. I mean certainly by October. I think. Man I don't know speaking of the fall. Just saw the NCWA. Approved six week preseason for.

"This thing will come to the Senate and it will die quickly and will do everything. I can't make it. I want this yes to hand as quick as possible for the Center for the good of the country and I think the best thing for America to do is get this behind us. I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I made up my mind. I'm here good morning and welcome the. Am Joy right now. The House Judiciary Committee is putting the final touches on. It's impeachment report ahead of an expected. Wednesday vote by the full House. But after what you just heard from the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. What's now clear to anyone who's watching? Is that the house will be the only body conducting a constitutional petitional process with something entirely different and diminished happening in the Senate by revealing that. He's not even going to pretend to be an impartial juror. You're in the impeachment trial of his boss man. Donald Trump Lindsey Graham is practically boasting that he considers the oath of office that he took when he became a senator to be a joke. United States senators take an additional oath at the beginning of an impeachment trial where they swear to quote do impartial justice according according to the Constitution and laws Lindsey Graham apparently considers that to be a joke to and he's far from alone grams revelation that he will refuse to do his job. Came just two days after self-proclaimed grim reaper of the Senate Mitch McConnell told the trump faithful on Fox News that the impeachment case will be dead on arrival and he essentially he. The jury foreman plans to coordinate the upcoming Senate trial with its defendant. Everything I do during this. I'm coordinating with White House counsel. There will be no difference between the president physician our position as to how to handle this so yesterday on the show I made the analogy of the upcoming trump impeachment trial to the OJ Simpson trial in which a man who many people believed was guilty was acquitted with that acquittal essentially becoming meaningless for a lot of his fellow citizens but overnight a friend. Sent me a tweet by professor. Abram Kennedy. I I think actually sums it up even better because the outcome of the OJ Simpson trial was indeed in doubt. No one knew what that verdict was going to be until it happened. Whereas trump's trial will in that trial to quote Professor Kennedy? It is becoming like a Jim crow trial deep down. Everyone knows everything everyone knows the racist. Defendant it guilty. Everyone knows the all white jury is going to quickly acquit. Everyone knows that the exonerated defendant will continue to break the law. Joining me now to discuss. Is Somebody who will be voting articles of impeachment this week Minnesota Representative Ilan Omar who serves on the Foreign Affairs Committee. Thank you so much for being here this morning so when I saw that that that that text overnight the tweet that was sent to me by a friend it was kind of jarring for me because I was thinking kind of an OJ trial situation but it is true true. I mean no one knew how that jury was GonNa vote. That's why it was a surprise. This is almost like one of those old south jury trials where the jurors go in ha ha ha. We're never going to convict this guy that is shocking to me that that's happening. Now what do you make of it as somebody who's going to vote in the house side. I mean in in the situation. You describe the tweet you can clearly see injustice will take place and what I think. The American people get to witness is a part of party that has decided to make a mockery of the constitution. These are leaders within the Senate knit who are abdicating their responsibility and their oath. If you were being selected as a juror for a case and you essentially essentially said you were planning to acquit. You would be excuse right and so it is important for us to recognize nuys that these are essentially Joris the Republicans have long this whole process. I decided that they were not going to be a fair and impartial juror. They've complained about the process. Even though every single single piece of that process was out in the open and within the rules of the House. And now you even have Mitch which McConnell say that he is going to work with the defendant's lawyers. Can you imagine if jurors in the case Said said well. I mean we're just going to communicate right with the defendant's lawyer and decide what the defense should be and how we should behave life and so it is really alarming and it should be alarming to everyone that is paying attention and I think it. It is the responsibility of the American people to hold these senators accountable to make sure that they're having their voices heard and and to require this process. This constitutional process is carried out impartially. Yeah and Lindsey Graham. I think is particularly galling for a lot of people because he has been such a hypocrite on this. You know he was one of the leaders of wanting to see Bill Clinton impeached. She was out there railing. Alling against President Clinton when President Clinton was impeached for lying to a officials who question about sexual affair. Something that for most Americans was. It was a trivial reason to impeach. President this was Lindsey Graham back in nineteen ninety eight and here he is here he is back in ninety eight. I know what people want to do with this case. I know they want to get it over. I know many of them. Don't want the president to be impeached. But I've got a duty far greater than just getting to the.

"He just said it possibly tens of thousands of lives are at stake because of what Donald Trump did we we can assume at least five to ten thousand most likely this is a huge deal okay guys yeah I know we talk about the Democrats the Republicans going at it trying to impeach Donald Trump we'll talk about the Ukrainian situation an update on that this has nothing to do with politics Republicans agree many of them including Lindsey Graham by the way you won't find a bigger trump supporter than Lindsey Graham make no mistake about it Donald Trump just made probably the biggest mistake since he started this presidency in withdrawing these troops from Syria you heard it from this gentleman tens of thousands now lives are at stake because the president decided to withdraw interest in the issue is it's gonna look like it's a favorite food because food when's it doesn't cost you the US a lot of money to have these troops here these troops are not dying it's a statement or like you said in the end it's gonna make even if it's not it's gonna make it look like he is he is giving Vladimir Putin and Russia a favor because it's gonna help them the most certainly that is what he's done I mean I mean it does look like why what what else would be the reasoning here I and I and a thousand troops that's what point zero said that's like Elizabeth Warren's native American heritage proportion to the actual troops United States military there aren't there aren't costing a lot of money that are not actually fighting you know why why withdraw them and I hate to compare this to you know the elections in two thousand twenty but this is one thing that really could turn a lot of people on Donald Trump Lindsey Graham is or is already started that and there's plenty of others plenty of other Republicans have spoken out about that I think this could be worse than Ukraine in the grand scheme the grand scheme of things because trump ran on we're gonna we're gonna bomb that but we're gonna bomb the hell out of ice and they did that but they received help in doing that another saying all you just helped us we're done with you that's how that that's not how this war this guy knows exactly at work like this guy knows exactly what is going on on the ground and he said it himself that this is a shot in the arm for ISIS this is a boost for ISIS this is a home run this horrible and you know how is this going to continue you know what is how is this going to continue what I mean when I meet at that is this is going to get worse one if we find out and I hope we're all wrong on this one but if we find out that tens of thousands of innocent lives are lost because of a decision by the president of the nicest look this would be the first time that a president has made a horrendous decision I go back to George W. bush and the Iraq war which in my opinion was also a horrendous decision but this would be the first time that a president is made a horrible decision where many people lost their lives but this is such a simple thing it makes no sense to me this is so simple to me okay you can make the argument going into the Iraq war we thought there were weapons of mass destruction name me a logical reason why you withdraw under a thousand troops in this type situation it makes no sense at all to me except for the fact that yes you're right JD he's trying to do once again Barbara Putin a favor even if he's not it's really hard to make it there to to make the argument that he isn't because it just doesn't there there isn't a lot of logic behind it because again it's not a lot of troops they aren't even active and the cost the military is minute in the grand scheme of things these are our allies these are people that are on our site war who have helped us recently very recently these are our allies these are our friends how do you again how can you defend this I've heard some ridiculous people you know talking about this Ukrainian situation I've heard some ridiculous excuses for that how can I would love to hear anybody try to excuse this what is the president's reasoning for this one guys I mean give me a break here this is this is this is really bad anyway we appreciate get a year does it and you know reporting live and giving us some information and what's going on there obviously this is bad this is a very very very bad situation make no mistake about it we're gonna continue to monitor it and speaking of bad situations for the president of the United States there been some Ukrainian arrests to people that are very close to Rudy Giuliani to associates who helped him on the Ukrainian situation on campaign finance charges they have been arrested we're gonna get continue to monitor this situation this is not good for Donald Trump this is not good for Rudy Giuliani and then we have all these polls that came out and Donald Trump you know once again he lies he he tweets yesterday that in all my god twenty five percent of people think that I should be impeached you know many call the fake you know fake news and a fake story first of all it's not twenty five percent of quote on quote people it's twenty five percent of Republicans but the president didn't put that in there over fifty percent of Americans think the president should be impeached both Republicans and Democrats that is a fox ball also learned that twenty five percent of Republicans want the president impeached not twenty five percent of Americans the way the Donald Trump tweeted yesterday and lied to the American people twenty five percent of Republicans do we not understand the difference there that is a huge difference and it's a very high number that means one in four Republicans think the president should be impeached right now even before all the rest of the information is out there and again that's not a liberal Paul that is a fox poll that came out and I think you know when you what right now if if it's twenty five percent it's just gonna get higher it's not gonna drop more than half of Americans think the president should be impeached both Republicans and Democrats you tell me one in four Republicans want to impeach and that's even if he's not impeach that's not going to affect the presidency the elections in two thousand twenty that is an extremely high number this story is not going away now we got these arrests these Ukrainian arrest these two associates too you know Rudy Giuliani who now is made the decision is only to do interviews on fox news is not gonna go on anywhere else because he doesn't want to be tested by the way we have Michael of an IT coming on the show tomorrow will continue to monitor this story and talk about this we've got Mister X. coming up in the ten AM our talk to him a little bit about what he feels about that but this latest I I have a feeling he's not to defend the president's decision to withdraw troops in Syria I have a feeling he's not gonna be defending it because some of the stuff like I said sponsors were about Republicans big supporters the president including Lindsey Graham have been not only outspoken but extremely outspoken and talking about how the president made an enormous mistake it withdrawn these troops enormous this is what happens when you put somebody in office that does not have experience this is what happens when you put somebody in office that makes impulsive decisions this is what happens when you put somebody in office that might wanna be doing favors to evil murderous dictators abroad in this case Vladimir Putin this should not surprise anybody because Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump Rana stage together and he sided with Putin over our own CIA Vladimir Putin has cited on the world stage when it came to Kim Jong moon when it came to the auto warm beer murder because they murdered that poor kid Vladimir Putin is an evil murderous dictator and for the life of me I don't understand why Donald Trump is so nice to him I've never heard Donald Trump talked tough on Vladimir Putin even one bill o'reilly interviewed the president in regards to Vladimir Putin and Donald trump's response was well we have murders here in this country think were so nice in our government that was his defense of whenever put in being a murderer this is gone on and on for a while I have no idea exactly what whatever Putin has on Donald Trump if anything but something does not make sense here and make no mistake about it the withdraw these troops is a favor as Judy said and I agree to Vladimir Putin there is no defense up that's exactly what this is you're gonna burn bridges with our allies to do Vladimir Putin a favor do you want to talk about impeachable offenses even if it's not a favor it's really hard to make it look like it is and and it's just going to cause more problems to Donald Trump it's not gonna help this is not a helpful maneuver use the term yeah I mean come on what what's the what's the rationale like what's the rational reasoning for for making this decision well he's gonna be asked that in a press conference if you eat he hasn't yet he's going to be asked and that there is no rational answer to this it makes from supporters at trump trump as a businessman but he has absolutely no tactical experience his nose for teaching experience with the military and the commander in chief needs to have that I want to talk to him itself more must think about it are we gonna take a quick break with back right after this we're gonna continue to talk about this monitor this will take your calls at two five seven five three nine six be back right after the.

I would say. but I I got kind of baffled. I'm actually paid for any one who wins the nomination okay. I don't know what's the matter. yeah and the reason why is because those.

"And fear, sometimes combined to create public love, and at ration- that seems to have happened to both Lindsey Graham, and Donald Trump junior, Lindsey Graham, clearly hated Donald Trump when he was running against him for president. The world's biggest jackass. He's race baiting xenophobic religious big. He's an opportunist. I think he's a Kook. I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office. And when the access Hollywood video came out showing Donald Trump bragging about his favourite form of sexual assault. Lindsey Graham tweeted named one sports team university, publicly held company, etc. That would accept a person like this as their standard bearer, but Donald Trump was already the Republican nominee for president, and there was nothing Lindsey Graham could do about that. And when Trump voters delivered an electoral college victory to Donald Trump Lindsey Graham began staring at his voters in South Carolina locked in fear, fear of Trump voters. And so Lindsey Graham combination of hate, and fear of Donald Trump, and Donald Trump's voters has produced the new Lindsey Graham who loves don't Trump, the new Lindsey Graham full of public. Adoration of Donald Trump. Analyst and author Jean Carole, has accused Donald Trump of grabbing her exactly the way he describes in the access Hollywood video, and then raping her in a Fifth Avenue department store dressing room twenty five years ago, Donald Trump has denied the accusation and today Lindsey Graham said he's denied it. And that's all I need to hear. Lindsey Graham never said that about Bill Clinton, when Lindsey Graham was one of the House Judiciary committee. Prosecutors in Bill Clinton's Senate impeachment trial. He's denied it, and that's all I need to hear like Donald Trump junior before him. Lindsey Graham seems to have come to his public position of love of Donald Trump by working his way through his hatred and fear of Donald Trump yesterday, Donald Trump junior tweeted this about aging Carol's, rape accusation enough is enough with this bull crap. Let him do his job. Is that what Donald Trump junior said to his mother, when his mother under? Growth, accused his father of raping her the very first person to accuse Donald Trump of rape was his first wife, Donald Trump, junior's mother, and she did it under oath in a deposition. She said Donald Trump attacked her and ripped her hair out and raped her because he was angry that her plastic surgeon did a bad job on his hair. It was around that time that Donald Trump junior stopped speaking to his father reports indicate that Donald Trump junior did not speak to his father for a year. That's what hatred consumed, like between father and son. Silence. And then perhaps came the realization that Donald Trump junior had no marketable skills that could preserve the lifestyle that has father could provide him. And so Donald Trump junior, went to work for the man, he wouldn't speak to for a year. And now when someone accuses Donald Trump of doing what doing to her what Donald Trump junior's mother said. He did to her. Donald Trump junior says enough is enough money changes everything in Trump world. It even changes the word rape after Don Trump reached a financial settlement with his first wife..

"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.

I don't know what happened to Lindsey Graham that I knew because he hasn't been showing up lately, he seems to be a drift morally, politically, it's I think it's mystifying to a lot of people certainly mystifying to me what happened to Lindsey Graham. Do what's happened to Lindsey Graham what happened to Wednesay rambling? What happened to Lindsey Graham? The thing about Lindsay Graham is he's one of these figures in Washington that comes with kind of a non verbal reaction at this point. Mark Leibovich wrote about Graham for the New York Times magazine, you mentioned his name anytime over the last six months to twelve months, and you get this combination. Grimace shrug follow up question. Yeah. What's going on? And in all the sort of Trump era Republican mysteries. When we ask ourselves. What happened to this person? Why is this person changing his or her mind so much now about Donald Trump Lindsey Graham, kind of is the signature mystery of the Trump era is far as what these conversions look like. Lindsey Graham grew up in a very small town in South Carolina. The town of central South Carolina and his parents owned a bar there called the sanitary cafe and they own it. But they lived in an apartment right behind the bar. The shared a restroom with the patrons of the bar. And he went from there is the first member of his family to go to college. His parents died when he was in his early twenties. He joined the military eventually got into politics, and then was elected to congress and eventually was elected to the Senate where over the years, he's become known as kind of a reliable conservative pretty partisan Republican. I'm Lindsey Graham in our business through the Bush years still Bama care from day one voting against the Obama years. He led the fight on Benghazi. He was known as someone who was a truth teller within his caucus. He's been a champion for our military. Our veterans for South Carolina. Josh he was seen much likes to Cain was as someone who you could have a conversation. You could deal with all eyes on Lindsey Graham and another democratic member trying to come up with some sort of bipartisan compromise and really want a lot of bipartisan respect a lot of respect across the aisles took on some pretty unpopular issues within his caucus eighty percent of the people would like CD's kids have a better life immigration. We won't be debating about the science will be debating about the solutions climate change. I mean, he was a big deal maker. He to this day is remembered and remember to sort of a key word because it's very past tense as someone who could speak some truth to power and someone who was seen as a reasonable, independent conservative. Let me tell you about Senator McCain, and he also was like a side kick kind of Gilligan to John McCain's skipper. He would die for this. This country. I love him to death. He was always inside the two of them had sort of similar sense of humor reason, why Lynch is not married is because you can't find anyone that loves him as much as. And was always again, very derivative of the energy that John McCain brought.

Why is this person changing his or her mind so much now about Donald Trump Lindsey Graham, kind of is the? Signature mystery of the Trump era is far as what these conversions look like. Lindsey Graham grew up in a very small town in South Carolina. The town of central South Carolina and his parents owned a bar there called the sanitary cafe and they own it. But they lived in an apartment right behind the bar. The shared a restroom with the patrons of the bar. And he went from there is the first member of his family to go to college. His parents died when he was in his early twenties. He joined the military eventually got into politics, and then was elected to congress and eventually was elected to the Senate where over the years, he's become known as kind of a reliable conservative pretty partisan Republican Lindsey Graham through the Bush years still Bama care from day one voting against the Obama years. He led the fight on Benghazi demanding he was known as someone who was a truth teller within his caucus. He's been a champion for our military veterans and a fighter for South Carolina. He was seeing much likes. Cain was as someone who you could have a conversation. You could deal with all eyes on Lindsey Graham and another democratic member trying to come up with some sort of bipartisan compromise and really want a lot of bipartisan respect a lot of respect across the aisles took on some pretty unpopular issues within his caucus eighty percent of the people at light CDs. Kids have a better life eighty percent of the people light to begin to fix broken immigration system. Immigration. We won't be debating about the science. We'll be debating about this Aleutians climate change. I mean, he was a big deal maker to this day is remembered and remember to sort of a key word because it's very past tense as someone who could speak some truth to power and someone who was seen as a reasonable independent conservative. Lemme tell you about center McKay. And he also was like a side kick the Gilligan to John McCain's skipper. He would die for this country. I love him to death. He was always the two of them had sort of similar sense of humor reason why. Is not married is because he can't find anyone that loves him as much as he. And was always again, very derivative of the energy that John McCain brought to everything that John McCain did. So two thousand fifteen I'm Lindsey Graham, and I'm running for president of the United States Lindsey Graham two thirds going to run for president he lost. So I never liked him as much after that. Because I don't like and relegates Donald Trump insults. John McCain war here. He's award. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. Is John McCain a euro? And Donald Trump said, no, he's not I like people who weren't captured. I don't need a poll the tell Donald Trump is not good to say that John McCain's loser. Because it was captured in a time of war, windy Graham, McCain best friend was extremely took great umbrage at this. I don't care if he drops out stay in the race. Just stop being jackass called Trump. I think it was a jackass. Can I got called the jackass by this guy? And then I said to myself. Hey, didn't this guy? Call me like four years ago. Yes, Donald Trump. Then at a campaign event decided I wrote the number down. I don't know if it's the right number. Let's try to to yell out Wednesday Graham cellphone number which to my memory has never been done before in American politics predictably the crank calls the threats commenced immediately, Lindsey Graham cell phone. I think he's a Kook I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office. So the phone thing happens the relationship did not improve. Over the course of the campaign. He's race baiting. Zena phobic religious big to say the least. And then even when Donald Trump was elected, even when he became president, Lindsey Graham, and John McCain were still none too happy with the fact that Donald Trump was president they kind of held their powder for a while, they weren't terribly vocal. But there were certain the Cajun's where Lindsey Graham was actually quite vocal and really wasn't trying to hide his feelings at all after the Charlottesville demonstration, and ultimately murder, our president the United States, and these people showed sympathy toward me and my gender. It would bother me. And I would urge the president to dissuade them the fact that he's sympathetic to their goals. Lindsey Graham was extremely outspoken about how the president should not have spoken out seemingly in favor of the white. Nationalist Custer calls is hate it is unamerican they are domestic terrorist. And we need more from our president on this issue. And also about the summer later when? Donald Trump and President Putin had that joint press conference in Helsinki. And the president seemed to side with President Putin over the conclusion of his own intelligence that Russia meddled with the election of twenty sixteen. He's misjudging. I don't think he was paired as well. As the should've been Lindsey Graham was not shy at all about speaking out. This was a NIST opportunity we reinforced and narrative that's bad for us as a nation. It came across a week. But then something weird happened. I am like the happiest dude. We've got a president and national security team that I've been dreaming of for eight years out light the president. I wanna help him a hope he's successful. He's been a friend to me. President Trump has the smarts and the moral courage to listen to his generals. I am all in keep it up down eleven. Sure, you're watching a President Trump deserves the Nobel peace prize, and then some fee don't light me working with President Trump to make the world a better place. I don't give a shit. So that's what people are asking what happened to Lindsey Graham. And I was asking myself. I mean, I don't think there was a sharper pivot from vehemently anti-trump to enthusiastically pro-trump more so than Lindsey Graham within the Republican party. So I decided that I would spend some time Lindsey Graham and see if I could ask him enough questions that maybe he could shed some light on this for me. Chair

The first Joel is in Jamison, Pennsylvania. Joel you're on the Larry elder show. Thank you so much for calling. Thank you for taking my call. You got it. Talk about the Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham relationship. How often have any of us formed an opinion about someone? We haven't met just from hearsay. And then we've gotten to meet that person and proxima change our opinion. The negative thoughts. Some people that hate Trump is well, obviously, here's something on Lindsey Graham Russell, and you will change his his position. But from the other side of it, isn't it possible that Lindsey Graham back to meet Donald Trump and Trump with him and see what is true feelings were an understood that he's not the type of person that he has been portrayed today. Joe that is a possibility that the Trump haters simply cannot embrace. That maybe maybe just maybe Trump and his bad is is we think he is. And once you get to know him, you get to like him that that is something that the left just can't get their arms around. Yeah. They'll never give it a chance. Right. The problem. Right. Right. Right point. Joel again here is what? The host of MSNBC's said with Representative David jolly David jolly is a Republican. He's no longer in office, and is a trumpeter before Donald Trump got elected Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump a racist, xenophobic bigot. That is Lindsay grams words, I doubt Lindsey Graham could tell you Donald Trump's had a change of heart in the last twenty four months. I bet what the change of heart has been with Lindsey Graham, not the president for could be Donald Trump for somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham. We're gonna leave it there. No, something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham. Now, there have been lost all sorts of rumors that Lindsey Graham has denied that he's gay. And that's what she suggesting something extreme. And even if he is is that something extreme. Honestly. And no evidence at all no proof at all decided. Her name is Stephanie rule. Let's hear this exchange again before Donald Trump got elected Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump, a racist, xenophobic bigot. That is Lindsay Graham words, I doubt Lindsey Graham could tell you Donald Trump's had a change of heart in the last twenty four months. I bet what the change of heart have been with Lindsey Graham, not the president could be that Donald Trump or somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham. We're gonna leave it there. My goodness. What did the president say about Ted Cruz and Ted Cruz his father? Trump's bid father might have been somehow connected to the assassination of John Kennedy by knowing Lee Harvey Oswald or some bizarre connection. It was completely farcical and Ted Cruz with upset about it. And now, they're gone, boss. So I don't know. Do you think that Donald Trump has something on Ted Cruz is Ted Cruz secretly somebody who's got a different sexual orientation, and maybe President Trump knows about that. And therefore it's holding it over his head. Donald Trump got elected Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump, a racist, xenophobic bigot. That is windy grams words, I doubt Lindsey Graham could tell you Donald Trump's had a change of heart in the last twenty four months. I bet what the change of heart has been with Lindsey Graham, not the president. Or it could be that Donald Trump for somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham. We're gonna leave it there. Wow. I thought outing a gay person was something that was inappropriate even if it were true. Now, let me just try to explain this t- people on the left those of you who hate Donald Trump who also listened to the Larry elder show. I appreciate it. Here's the deal. I have rarely seen Republican president this popular among among Republicans. There was a time when George Herbert Walker. Bush might have had a slightly higher ratings after the successful Persian Gulf war. But that didn't last very long he was defeated for reelection. Ronald Reagan had high ratings among Republicans. And right after nine eleven George W Bush had high ratings among Republicans among everybody, really frankly higher ratings. Sustain almost ninety percent. Like this. I've really seen it. Now, Stephanie ruin or you're listening to the Larry elder show as you should. Why because he's pursuing policies the base likes. He's pursuing policies that most other Republicans on the hill agree with. They agreed the borders should be secured degree the tax cuts with the tax cuts. The corporate tax rate was too high. They're skeptical about green tech. They don't want to March towards single payer. They do feel that NATO has played us. Donald Trump has put pressure on NATO. So now, some of the NATO countries are finally living up to their promises about how much money they're going to spend that it's percentage of their GDP. And we haven't had any test firings from North Korean a time how and why is that a bad thing? And while I'm concerned about pulling the troops out of Syria. Many people never felt they should have been there in the first place. So exactly what's the problem. The problem is you just hate this guy in the media in part because they know they made him by giving him all sorts.

"And transparent investigation will also be. There was also that the medic amendment that they would show the entire world the results of their investigation. They also indicated they would get this done quickly. I don't know the precise time line, but they indicated that they understood the importance of getting that done in a timely. Rapid fashion. So that they could begin to answer important questions. All right. So you report it to the world that both the king of Saudi Arabia and his son who's running the country of said we had nothing to do with the president who is taking a mid mid position. Neither for nor against said this about the investigation Turkey and Saudi Arabia looking at it, very strongly. And it depends whether or not the king or the crown prince knew about it in my opinion, number one what happened, but whether or not they knew about it if they knew about it that would be bad. So good cop Pompeii, oh bad cop was the new newfound friend of Donald Trump. Lindsey Graham who came out swinging and winging more than any other democrat that you would have expected as he said he wants to take down the house of fraud the Saudis over this. I can never do business with Saudi Arabia again until we get this behind this. And what does that mean? That means I'm not going back to Saudi Arabia's longest this guy's in charge. So you're selling the crown prince has to leave this up to them. But I'm not going to I've been their biggest defender on the floor of the United States Senate. This guy is a wrecking ball. He had this got murdered in a consulate in Turkey into expect. I feel used and abused. I was on the floor. Every time defending Saudi Arabia because there's a good ally. There's a difference between your country an individual NBS figure is to me toxic. He can never be a world leader on the world stage. NBS is the that's the Thirty-three-year-old prince Curtis kudos to Lindsey Graham. Who's been obviously, very outspoken was outspoken and cavenaugh is outspoken here and the. News too is at this. High ranking officer who was involved in this interrogation, gone bad is what sort of is being kind of put out there. Apparently was inner circle and close to the crown prince to 'em Bs, and if they can point that this guy, first of all, I don't believe anything happens in the Saudi consulate without an attachment to the government. But this is outrageous. The president made a major mistake by drawing judge cavenaugh into this discussion claiming hey, just like with judge cavenaugh. What are we finding the Saudis guilty until innocent? No in this case, Mr President, both you have to Shep rate the Saudi clearly are guilty. The coming up with all kinds of concocted excuses as to what happened with an interrogation gone bag Curtis Cole feathers floating out there floating out different explanations. If floating dismembered them by accident, give me a break out to their lobbyists here in America. This Shane you do know because Shoghi was friends of Osama bin Laden, very, very deep friendship will Shama bin Laden and other Islam terrorists. And he was chief spokesperson in many instances for the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia. So they're trying to taint him that way at doesn't seem to be he's king. So the problem is the Saudis when all is said and done. Ladies and gentlemen, have said whatever mind your own business. This is an internal matter if you tally eight against us for what you claim we did we are going to retaliate against you. And once again, I'm telling you know, what that is. They hold the world by the cool Leonis because they control the flow of oil the price of oil. If the pump more the price goes down, if they pump the price goes up Russia would be happy if they pump less Iran would be happy. Venezuela would be happy because he be getting more for the oil pumped up from the surface. So there are other countries with cheering them on. Yeah. That's right pump last so that we can get more. Well, and you got to wonder a little bit about Turkey. And I'll tell you my first reaction. I I listen they're supposedly audio out there. And if that is true, and if that comes out Curtis status absolutely damning that apparently on his little apple phone because he knew he was going in his apple watch that he may have. Recorded what happened to him? And if that ever comes out, can you imagine just how horrific and horrible because he suspected knowing that he had been critical of the Saudi government and about audio comes out. I think that that's it's it's game over that would just be horrible. But I do wonder the intend to bit of the Turks trying to now look like the peacemakers of the world with one who is certainly had problems in his own country whacked out his own journalists. Anyone who says anything negative about on can suddenly disappear? Poof, right. Like, he's the bud. The arbiter of protecting journalists such a Joe we deal with countries. Like this all the time. Whether it's China, whether it's Russia, whether it's Turkey, whether in this case Saudi Arabia, I ask everyone out there. If they turn off the spigots you talking a dollar or more increase at the pump that you will feel right away. And he could continue to go up and remember the Saudis have the fiscal wherewithal to not pump petrol petroleum products out of the ground..

"I'm pitch hitting for Dr drew and Leo terell is standing by to make sure everything's legal. Okay. Great. So what do we think Trump just finally couldn't keep his mouth shut anymore or he figure? This is a perfect deflection to attack Christine Blasi floored campaign rally, I think a combination of both. But I think Trump may not sound provincial. But what he came out of his mouth, a lot of people think that and I got news for this country is split on that and in the south that is Trump territory. So he's all those people crappy behind him. What does that tell you? Guess who wasn't clapping the senators whose votes actually matter? You have Susan Collins absolutely horrified. He came out and said Jeff flake saying this was absolutely the wrong thing to do. That's whose opinions actually matter. If you want this nominee to go through these are, the senators that deferred their time in the hearing to the hired prosecutor for exactly this reason. So the Repub. Party doesn't look like the party. That's mocking a quote rape victim. I agree with you. But let me I saw some numbers the other day in the south Republicans are favor over Democrats in house seats, and I'm just telling you the south is Trump country who's planned to his base as long as thirty six hundred thirty percent base. He does not care about the media on the west coast or the east coast. I think I I'm just stating those facts, I think it's pretty clear he's not changing his ways. But I'm wondering if the GOP's now. Like throwing their hands up. Like, look, we tried to do this as classes, we tried to be, you know, the good guys here and stand on the higher ground, and you just blew it for us. Well, I'll tell you right now. I don't know if she's if Kevin off is going to get confirmed, but Trump plays second fiddle to know what he's not worried about a Republican Senator or a Republican House member. In fact, I think they're afraid of him. I e Lindsey Graham Lindsey afraid of Donald Trump. Lindsey Graham tried to interview for the attorney general position Lindsey Graham is worried about his twenty twenty seen in South Carolina. He better not make Trump upset period. Next. L locally here. There was a big boss for the string of burglaries that have been happening in fancy LA home, specifically, the San Fernando Valley we've been hearing for months now about burglarizing from Riyan ask Christina Milian, Yossi Yossi. Oh, Puig Yossi week, Andy and Randy Wayne I- burglarized. I do not live in the fan. I live south of the boulevard also Rams receiver Robert woods. Apparently, the cops pulled over a car on an unrelated charge and found a bunch of expensive handbags jewelry and purses that they identified as missing items from people's houses with someone trying to hawk when Gasio Puig's chains. They also found fifty thousand dollars in cash the alleged gang members that were arrested in south Los Angeles included three guys in there eighteen and nineteen year olds and one of their mothers was with them. This is an inside job period. These hits on these high priced homes and rich and famous does anybody believe somebody walking down? Street. Just going to say, let's pick that house. This is a pattern and practice of people who are aware of what's going on inside hotels. Well, they're aware of what's going on owners are not there. That tells you something someone is provided them information, they're providing them, they no one really goes on tour. Playing information what to take where to take it? And how to take 'em always escape. I mean, it's a pattern. Well, the term is called flocking because they quote flocked birds like areas where the rich and famous are cited, and they show up in fancy cars and button down shirts to not look suspicious and soon as they realize somebody's not home, they switched to casual clothing and hoodies break in and break out before anyone knows the difference. I love that. There's a costume change. Got it. Okay. Randy you, and I try to Imola see if we can get away with it. I don't need to rob anybody. Okay. I'm doing. Okay. All right. Good. I just want to tell us something. No, no, no, get my bar license in trouble. Over in Texas in Austin super progressive Austin. There is a new city ordinance that is trying to do away with food waste. They did a study in two thousand fifteen they found that thirty seven percent of materials that were sent to landfills were organic food that could have been donated or composted. So now they're calling to pass. They have an ordinance passed. That's to help businesses can donate extra food to those in need or they could compost food have compost sites on site. Food waste is a major problem. But I know at least here in California, one of the issues with the supermarket, for instance, not getting rid of forty percent of their unsold food and throwing in the garbage is there held liable. If they donate food and someone gets sick from it. I didn't know that. That's not right. That's not right. They need to modify that law or health inspector DC, do some type of exemption, but food waste is ridiculous. A lot of people do weights food and Marcus that don't use our sell unsold food. They should give it to the people who are homeless. I mean, there are some services that like for instance, I used to be just a practice that for fruit growers like peach growers at the peach didn't look pretty enough. They just throw it on the ground. Now, there's companies like imperfect produce that are taking ugly fruit which you'll see at like farmer's markets. Do that. Right. Well, because it's still good. It just doesn't look picture. Perfect tastes the same. Good. Then he's got to do a little work. Don't judge a squash by its cover each by its Bruce. I think that's the lesson here. But anything that we can do to eliminate food waste because it's something like thirty to forty percent of all food produced in this country is thrown away here. I think because we go through so much produce here in California. There's so much salad. Pop up pops up. What are they doing with the fruit that they can't use after the expiration date, but still good, right? And a lot of the expiration dates, they're arbitrary. Yeah.

"The back of just a couple of quick further thoughts. It seems fairly obvious to me that when Rachel Mitchell the sex crimes prosecutor from from America county started asking Brett Kavanagh about July. First the date, the Sheldon Whitehouse pointed out on his calendar. This morning is the date that according to Kavanagh's own calendar. It was a Friday. He said he was out of town all the weekends. This was a this is not a weekend. This was a Friday night. And he was having Bruce skis with the judge. And with the guys that the Christine four put in the room. Now, he named to other to other boys in Grassley said, well, therefore, it's obviously different meeting. You know, did the boys show up later where the, but as soon as she got to that issue. That was the point at which Lindsey Graham jumps up and blows the whole thing up in Chuck Grassley lets him do it, and then they hustle her out of the room, and she's not allowed to ask cavenaugh anymore questions. Instead, he just gets a tongue bath from Ted Cruz from John Cornyn and from Mike Lee and from all the other Republicans on the committee. So number one. And number two Lindsey Graham outburst in my humble opinion was a job interview for the job of attorney general of the United States with Donald Trump Lindsey Graham used to be Lindsey Graham. Used to be John McCain's best friend. And I always wondered about Lindsey Graham, you know, is he just kind of an obedient suck up to somebody. Is he the it does he want to be is his role in life in his own mind to be some big persons wingman? Or is he tried to develop his own persona did run for president once? But he was always John McCain's wing, man. And now, apparently he's decided to be Donald Trump swing man. And he's completely abandoned all the principles of independence and thinking for yourself that John McCain at times exemplified and certainly claimed to to have Carson Connor with us. Okay. Cool, congressman or Okada's. The liner to be a little late. Hey, congressman, how are you? I'm doing well. But a terrible day in Washington. But. Unbelievable testimony yesterday it really and truly is I should I should introduce you. You're the US congressman from the seventeenth district of California. The vice chair the congressional progressive caucus Khanna K H A N N, A dot house dot gov is the website and people can tweet you rep Roca. So your thoughts on what happened yesterday and this morning. Polling. I mean, we were just talking about this on the floor of the house. I don't think there's a single person who didn't believe that the word. He was on it been raw emotional, it took extraordinary courage for her to come forward. She didn't wanna come forward publicly. She finally did though. In the message is it doesn't matter. I mean, there was the biggest thing there's no r-operation evidence. But they're making no effort to get any of the corroborating evidence. So it is a debate a knock at the women, but the process of American democracy descended that there's some fair. That would be followed is just being railroaded by Bradley in the committee. Absolutely congressman usually when you come on you calls. We have a full Boorda calls. Every single line is full of many people want to weigh in on the cavenaugh thing. I did announce about fifteen minutes ago that the opening of the show that you would be with us. And if people had questions for you, and I'm not sure which might be questions for you in which by just be venting. But oh, they're all Louise's said, they're all Arocca. Okay. Good.

She had no evidence. The only evidence she had were four people who were there who all swore in an affidavit that they don't recall never happened. No. Actually, that's not true. And you know, congressman. Hi, how do we rebut? These sliced and diced talking points that are essentially B S, for example. You know, the her friend, you know, she she didn't she didn't make a statement. Her lawyer made a statement. And the statement wasn't that it didn't happen. It was that that she doesn't remember the or something like that. I mean, how how do you respond to this? Kevin up kept saying that the other witnesses denied that it happened. But what they said they didn't recall whether it happened in one person actually said she believed that before the big debate, the Democrats and under four that wanted a earring in wanted evidence in wanted people to testify you can't say that there's no evidence when you're not willing to hear the evidence. I mean, just the height of the other one there's no throughout ration-, but they're not willing to call. Mark judge before the committee. They're not willing to call the doctor spread before the committee. They're not willing to head an FBI investigation. How are we going to get robbery, but you're not willing to listen to the evidence thing is it's just so unfortunate about the credibility attacked the knocker four. First of all, I believe her, but Secondly nitpicking about whether she lied or not. It putting her on trial and no one had nitpicking about cavenaugh statements about his yearbook. I mean, some of his explanations were laughable more respect for him. If he did that I was a dumb stupid teenager. And I said things they shouldn't have it would be on it. But the the stretching of the crew engaged in a defend himself, the real credibility issue. Yeah. It really is. We just have forty seconds. So we hit a heartbreak here.

"To say, if I ever got impeached no other president has ever led into that particular phrasing in an interview for here. He is tonight with Bloomberg talking about impeachment saying, you can't impeach president of the president's doing a good job. And all of this impeachment talk from the president has erupted after he learned that Michael Cohen was pleading guilty after Michael Cohen implicated the president in federal court himself. And after the president learned that David pecker is under an immunity agreement with prosecutors and all of the contents of that safe are presumably available to prosecutors. It's pretty amazing says we sort of have to stop and look at how we got here and just sort of the extraordinarily nacelle of it which gets lost in a moment to moment. This defense that you can't impeach someone who's popular, I think would work better if he was popular. The. Giardi of the American people don't approve Donald Trump's job performance and don't approve of him. I mean, he's somewhere around forty percent, so it just doesn't really hold up. I think he's sort of floundering around here trying to come up with pretty much any reason that he shouldn't be in the position that he is in, but it shouldn't surprise anybody including Republicans because this is pretty much the same Donald Trump that is existed for a long time and they had a good insight in the. The primary and the general election forty was going to be alike, and this is the bark and that was struck and Ruth. It's the same Donald Trump. Lindsey, Graham during the primaries of Ted Cruz during the primaries, others said, is unfit to be president, and he's unfit to be president because of suspicions about the kinds of things about him that now have been proven and have been in in some of them confessed to by Donald Trump saying last week that, oh, yeah, I knew about the payments to the women, but I knew about it as he put it later, whatever that's supposed to mean. And so as Stuart says, this person was kind of an open book even though the National Enquirer did what it could to keep that book closed for so long. Yeah, it was a sailed safe, but an open book. Everything that we're seeing about Donald Trump now is consistent with. What he demonstrated to us during the campaign and what we were able to learn about him during the campaign. I think that the Morris Sonning transformation is the one that you allude to, which is the old Lindsey, Graham truth, telling Trump criticizing Lindsey, Graham and new Trump loving Trump, excusing Trump, enabling Lindsey, Graham, what we've been talking a lot about Senator John McCain this week, what a disappointment than new Lindsey, Graham would be to Senator McCain. Stewart, what do you make of what's what we've seen? Lindsey, Graham do just in the last couple of months, especially the last couple of weeks. I mean here was somebody who said, absolutely holy hell to pay. If if you even think about firing Jeff Sessions now, Lindsey, Graham Bram enabling the firing of Jeff Sessions, saying, of course, the president deserves an attorney general who he can have confidence in. Well, look at someone who has admired Senator grandma. It just makes my heart hurt and my head hurt. I just don't understand it. They all serve with Senator sessions. They all seem to like Senator sessions. They were all four Senator sessions, and it seems to be the sin Senator sessions has committed here is actually doing his job that he was appointed to do caring more about that job than about serving a political patron, which I would have felt that the Senator grand that I've marred. So many people admired for so long would applaud that it's just one of these confounding things that you wonder when you look back on it. A couple of years from now is this is going to be a moment that that he feels good about and reflect the best of him. It's just astonishing to see. Donald Trump is not a better president now than he was when Lindsey. Graham was defending the attorney general. If anything, there is much more reason to be supporting the attorney general and Lindsey, Graham has done a complete reversal wouldn't have to leave it there..
