Former RNC chairman Steele positively destroys the lap canine Lindsey Graham
Long, long ago, Lindsey Graham was seen as a senator willing to do business on both sides of the aisle. But the South Carolina Senator is now very far from those days.
Graham, more than perhaps any other prominent Republican lawmaker, is fully involved with Donald Trump. He recently said that without Trump at the top, the party cannot even move forward.
The South Carolina Senator recently told Sean Hannity: “I’ve always liked Liz Cheney, but she realized that the Republican Party can’t grow with President Trump. I have found that without it we cannot grow. “
Michael Steele, the former chairman of the RNC, was asked about these comments on Sunday. He told MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart: “Gosh, how the mighty have fallen and sunk to the lowest lows that Donald Trump is your savior. The reality is that five years ago Donald Trump was someone everyone said, “Why is he here?” and now they’re throwing everyone else out of the room because he’s here. “
The Lincoln Project member continued:
“It speaks of desperation – desperation of leadership, desperation for ideas, desperation for a way to move the country forward and embrace its diversity. This is what Liz Cheney was trying, trying to tell them, and she has shown the leadership that threatens them, as one of her caucus members put it: “She’s like that friend who isn’t on you hears. ‘ “Really?” is this your point of contact with Liz Cheney? That tells you where we are. “
While the direction of the Republican Party may be angry with Steele, it is good for Democrats. The party got involved with the unpopular Trump and it seems like a boon for the liberals.
