Lindsey Graham Two Jameson Shots Away From Shrieking, 'I'm With Her, Y'all!'
Is he drunk? Maybe.
Uh oh, the confirmed bachelor gentleman senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, is appalled, we tell you, appalled, by presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's uncouth racism toward the Messican-type judge, Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over one of the (many) Trump University scam lawsuits. Here is what he had to say to the Grey Lady about it:
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, another former primary rival of Mr. Trump’s, urged Republicans who have backed Mr. Trump to rescind their endorsements, citing the remarks about Judge Curiel and Mr. Trump’s expression of doubt on Sunday that a Muslim judge could remain neutral in the same lawsuit, given Mr. Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim noncitizens entering the country.
“This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” Mr. Graham said. “If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it,” he added. “There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary.”

Did the gentle senator just suggest that if you love America, you will vote for Hillary? Was he drunk on Jameson at the time? Because Lindsey Graham is really fun when he's drunk, or so we hear. Next time the Times catches up with Graham, he'll be splayed out on the floor having wardrobe malfunctions shrieking "HILLARY IS MY DIVA!!!!!"
Anyway, all you America-loving Republicans, you heard the man. You better start showing your love for America by #Undorsing Trump and supporting Hillary. The rest of you Republicans who hate America, you may carry on supporting Trump.
[wonkbar]<a href="http://wonkette.com/602136/lindsey-graham-donald-trump"></a>[/wonkbar]Now, you'll remember Dame Lindsey never actually endorsed Trump. He just demurely, from the comfort of his boudoir, urged Republican donors to go ahead and unite around the Republican nominee. Oh, and he talked on the phone with Trump about sexxxy things like ISIS. But that was a whole two weeks ago, so we are guessing something bad happened that brought their budding romance to a screeching halt. Maybe it was the racist comments about the judge, or maybe they had a fight, which led Lindsey to exclaim to Trump, "You low-down, cowardly, nasty thing you! They were right! Everybody was right! You -- you aren't a gentleman!"
Anywho, Graham's quote in the Times is buried amongst a bunch of other GOP whine-buckets, bellyaching about how Donald Trump is just sooooo rude, but never actually saying they're not going to vote for him. New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte says Trump's statements about the Indiana-bred Messican judge are "offensive and wrong," but she'll still support him.
Maine Sen. Susan Collins wants some of that "Trump is wrongbad but I am also a coward" action too:
“I continue to hope that Mr. Trump will rethink his position and take back those words and show respect for the separation of powers doctrine that is enshrined in our Constitution,” Ms. Collins said in an interview. “I continue to believe in redemption.”
Praise Jesus and pass the gravy, Susan, thanks for being such a Reasonable Republican.

How Racist That Naughty Boy Trump is! But he's still supporting him.
And Chris Christie, who is probably Trump's least expensive rentboy (especially after Trump stopped buying him Oreos), thinks that trollop Lindsey should shut his strumpet mouth about his short-fingered prince, as he explained to CNN:
Lindsey Graham has changed his mind about who he is endorsing and not endorsing so many times it's hard for me to keep track. ... He was for Jeb, I think ... Marco, then he was for Ted after he told everybody Ted could be murdered on the floor of the Senate ... He should worry about going back to South Carolina and trying to rebuild his base ... or he won't be in the United States Senate for much longer.
Well shoe horns and suck a penis, Lindsey, you sure did try. Guess it's time to take a few more shots of Jameson and get in the tank with Hillary.
