Lindsey Graham Sneaks Onto the Trump Train
Imagine my overwhelming surprise that even Lindsey Graham, who called Donald Trump “crazy” and “a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot” just a few months ago, is now bailing out of #NeverTrump and joining the #GoTrumpGo movement.
(CNN)Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Donald Trump’s fiercest critics, is now calling on Republicans to support their presumptive nominee.
Graham urged GOP donors at a private fundraiser Saturday in Florida to unite behind Trump’s campaign and stressed the importance of keeping likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from the White House. The fundraiser was hosted by former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal Al Hoffman, a former Republican National Committee finance chairman who also co-chaired Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential bid.”He did say that we need to get behind him,” Teresa Dailey, a prominent Florida Republican fundraiser who attended the private event, told CNN on Sunday.
At this rate, poor Erick Erickson is going to be the sole surviving member of #NeverTrump before long. Never let it be said that Republicans actually stick to their principles. Apparently being “a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot” isn’t a serious impediment to leading the Republican Party.
Just a couple of weeks ago, here’s the song Graham was singing:
I also cannot in good conscience support Donald Trump because I do not believe he is a reliable Republican conservative….(4)
…..do not believe he is a reliable GOP conservative nor has he displayed the judgment and temperament to serve as Commander in Chief. (5)
