Sen. Lindsey Graham was furious that President Biden sent troops to the U.S. border, but when asked if Trump would do the same, the South Carolina senator said Trump had done the best job in his lifetime.
Q: “Where are you? [Biden] Did the administration send troops to the border?
Graham: “I think it’s funny theater.”
Q: “Did you feel the same way … in 2018 when Trump sent troops to the border?”

When asked if Graham Trump would do the same, he changed his tune and said, “I think Donald Trump has done the best job of my political life. When Donald Trump did something, it worked. Everything that Ted (Cruz) has done has worked.
If Biden does anything, he’s going to fail. If Trump does anything, even things that are proven to be completely rejected. It worked.
This is completely normal behavior for a political party and not a cult in any way, shape or form.
Sen Graham’s comments are the height of partisan hypocrisy, but they represent how the Republican Party continues to delude itself into sticking with Trump amid a clear failure of the presidency.
Lindsey Graham knows Trump has failed, but he’s all over Coal-Aid, so he can never say that.
Graham is a shell of the public figure he once was, and it’s surprising to see a United States senator debase himself to Donald Trump.
