Lindsey Graham Mocked After Making Bizarre 'Trump Cult' Prediction About GOP's Future
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said something regarding the approaching Republican cleanse of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from House administration over her resistance to previous President Donald Trump.
Cheney is the most recent casualty of moderate drop culture as she's allegedly nearly losing her position as gathering seat, the number three Republican in the House, because of her analysis of the previous president.
Yet, Graham wasn't too thoughtful to her situation.
"Would we be able to push ahead without President Trump? The appropriate response is no," he said on Fox News on Thursday night. "I've generally enjoyed Liz Cheney, yet she's made the assurance that the Republican Party can't develop with President Trump. I've decided we can't develop without him."
On MSNBC, above, analyst Jason Johnson of Morgan State University said Graham was singing an old song.
"He seems like a '90s R&B artist, similar to, 'I can't go on, I can't envision my future without you," Johnson said. "Obviously, Lindsey Graham has probably as much political uprightness and soundness as a climate vane."
Also, on Twitter, Graham's faultfinders rushed to likewise get down on him:
🎶Tell me, how could I should live without you?Now that I've been cherishing you so longHow am I expected to live without youAnd how could I should convey on?When all that I've been livin' for is gone...🎵 https://t.co/sW2Ce1QsgE—Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) May 7, 2021
Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham have certainly played Boar on the Floor at Mar-a-Lago. https://t.co/fboPTYwxNF—Schooley (@Rschooley) May 7, 2021
No Lindsey. The Republican Party will not develop with Trump. The gathering will just SHRINK with Trump. https://t.co/57paKEhi2v—Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) May 7, 2021

This is refreshingly legitimate. Mostly in light of the fact that he sees her as making a strategic assurance instead of an ethical one (perhaps obvious!) and furthermore on the grounds that this rationale is autonomous of any ethical contemplations at all. https://t.co/JdUErOcOXm—Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) May 7, 2021
In two attempts, Donald Trump never figured out how to get even 47% of the famous vote, but then Lindsey Graham thinks the GOP can't live without him. That is a particularly inauspicious analysis on the condition of the Republican Party. https://t.co/gAzlpya9up—James Surowiecki (@JamesSurowiecki) May 7, 2021
This is the most wretched thing I've seen. Lindsey Graham unmistakably had his spine carefully eliminated. No other clarification. https://t.co/9YzXPP7SEt—Perry's Perspective🇺🇲 (@perryspeaks1) May 7, 2021

Lindsey Graham is a failure.Trump won't save Republican goals. He doesn't even offer them. He's effectively sabotaging everything a vote based republic addresses. He needs a faction of character and he will obliterate US to get it. He should be halted no matter what.— ZachsMind (@ZachsMind) May 7, 2021

They are all in on dictatorship and public populism. They are not a genuine gathering any longer and this disgraceful husk of an unfilled chicken suit is the living verification. https://t.co/c57DPkcCUo—Fred Wellman (@FPWellman) May 7, 2021
The media will not call this gathering fundamentalist until they put out a public statement calling themselves extremist and surprisingly then I duno https://t.co/NuWF6nfmLk—Matt Negrin, HOST OF HARDBALL AT 7PM ON MSNBC (@MattNegrin) May 7, 2021
