    Of course Limpy defends the lynching statement – he’s from South Carolina

  2. He could always hang himself if he wants

    • @Krystal Ball LOL! Your Fox News talking point has gone stale since since the presidency of Lyndon Johnson started in 1963. Google “Great Society” if you are not aware of his legacy.

      Kristal Ball was spamming the same post multiple times so I got rid of the madman.

  3. I so hope that Lindsey goes down with The Orange Menace…

      @Krystal Ball lol, Southerners betrayed the United States and took up arms to enslave fellow humans.
      Southerners lost the Civil War, and Southerners set up the KKK.
      Southerners vote majority Republican.
      Scrying is witchcraft, I hope your evangelical Southern racist neighbours don’t lynch you for being a witch.

    • @Colin Cleveland

      Virginians pretty much founded the country.

      Turns out, there’s a lot more to a person than where they live.

    • @Krystal Ball

      And they also were the party that ended segregation. That’s why do many southern whites left the party and became republicans in the late 60s. The racists fled the DNC because of civil rights. All those folks are still Republicans.

      Also people’s behavior changes over time, as norms change and people get wiser. This is good. This allows us to not have to keep ancient blood feuds rolling through the ages. We don’t have to hunt down the republicans that left the DNC and label them. It also means that southern liberals are free to be Democrats. We can move on. This too is good.

      The modern DNC does have a huge problem though: its leadership isn’t really liberal.

      All of the sins of the modern DNC (being the failure to act in the best interest of the middle class) are entirely the fault of the Clintons. As soon as the DNC leaves the Clinton era in the rearview mirror it can get back to being the proper liberal voice that Americans absolutely need.

      Similarly, Trump is no conservative, and it appears to be the GOP’s turn to fall prey to an imposter. This is a shame. Trump is doing real harm to the reputation of the GOP. Once the boomers are gone it will be hard pressed to seat a dog catcher for a decade. This will leave Americans with no properly conservative voice. That is bad.

      Turns out: you have to do more than look at the “R” or the “D”. Anyone can put either one next to their name.

    • Gee, amazing how times and parties have changed, isn’t it?

    • @v blackwell

      What is amazing is the extent to which people ignore history. Ignorance empowers the wrong people.

  4. Of course graham is defending trump on the “lynching” statement, he”s trying to make up for hurting trumps feelings over his statements regarding the pull out of troops from Syria..And being from the south made it easier.

      Linda does more flippin than i hop on sunday morning. Easier when you have no spine.

    • @Five Minute Genius – I’m sure CNN would not run a correction. They will just move on to another topic to lynch trump with. How about that for lynching?

    • @sean gleason – why is it that whenever trump says something the leftists media chase after every single republican and ask them to condemn it? Don’t they know that they are being played? It doesn’t happen the other way with the leftists. Biden used American cash to threatened another country into firing their state prosecutor. CNN or other media have not asked any dems politicians to comment on even the morality of what he did if you put aside the possible corruption element.

    • Kay Bel, if your post had had any credibilty, you would have lost it when you put in the part about Biden using American cash. That immediately proved you don’t know what you’re talking about. Thx

      None should defend Trump for saying lynching, because there is nothing wrong with using that word. This phoney outrage is sickening!!

    Oh no. Lindsey must have had his chain yanked!

  6. Flimsy Lindsey should just dial “Whine One One: What’s your hypocrisy?”

    • @Eric Hoberg – what is brilliant about this?

    • @Kay Bel Do you right wingers not feel any shame spouting such chickenshit arguments? Calling consensual sex between two adults “rape” because of a “power imbalance” is the kind of bullshit you usually attribute to “libtards” to make fun of their supposed political correctness. That you would resort to an argument you don’t really believe in just shows how dishonest and dimwitted you are.

      Let’s see how fair you are, then, by extending that same gesture to the politicians who referred to Clinton’s process by the same terminology.

    • @Joshua d’Estoville You’re obviously regurgitating a response to a criticism of Trump comparing his situation to a lynching.
      I didn’t do that.
      Don’t be so lazy. Spend 30 second reading what I wrote and criticize that if you disagree. As it is you’re only strengthening my point about shameless right wingers mindlessly parroting weak, ready-made “arguments” they get from Dumbass Central Headquarters.

    • @Nessuno Dorme – it’s ridiculous that we are even having this argument. If you can’t see the gross power imbalance then what is the point. One thing I know for sure that if trump has sex with an intern you leftists would be on CNN calling it a form of rape.

  7. _”He knew exactly what he was saying”_
    To be fair, that’s one charge I’m not sure I associate with trump..

  8. Lindsey Graham doesn’t know if he’s going to spit or swallow

    Just when I thought for a second just maybe Graham was coming to his senses, he does this.

  11. The distinguished senator will soon be getting all that he rightly deserves.

  12. “Ask me about Syria, Please!.” 😅😅

  13. It’s 2019 and this is where we are, sad

    • @Angel 1973 Well we will find out when Barr publishes his report ,i cant wait ,its gonna be good

    • @fran bran. You’re just accusing me of being anti-Trump. That’s not an argument. It was clear to me that Russiagate was a lie, but I read the Volker text messages and now I’m 100% sure he did what he is accused of doing. There is still a question of whether or not it is impeachable, but people like you have no integrity, you’re just partisan.

    • @Dan Van Nuys There’s a difference between trashing their content and pointing out the lack of journalistic integrity. Pretending that the word “lynch” is inherently racist only means one thing, you have no clue what the actual definition of the word is, nor it’s origins. Neither include racism as a precondition.

      They are literally manipulating their base to convolute the word with racism in an effort to smear Trump and the left is gobbling it up. Lynching can happen to anyone, it is race neutral. Always has been, always will be. The reaction to this is a perfect example of people seeking to be offended because they get some sort of sick pleasure from it.

  14. Graham literally talks out of both sides of his mouth.

  15. You know it’s bad, when his rep. says: “ask me about Syria, please…”

    Well, looks like Lindsey Graham lost his balls again…

    Giving him rope to hang himself is more like it.

  18. “Lynching is un-American” – Says a rep from one of the states with the most horrific lynchings known through our countries history.

  19. Bartender: “What’ll ya have?”
    Rudy: “Gimme a Molotov cocktail.”

    • trump: ill have a vodka in a glass made from china.

      @sean gleason i think trump would prefer “2 russian girls 1 cup”

    • I’m pretty sure Trump would prefer a White Russian.
