Lindsey Graham pulled a fast-one on many MAGA folks.
***FOLLOW US ON RUMBLE***
He’s a politically crafty fella, and he’s been around the block a few times, and nobody knows better how the Swamp works than him, right?
And Lindsey caught on quickly to what was happening with President Trump splashing on the scene. After all, he tried (and failed) to take Trump on during the primary, so when President Trump won, Lindsey had two choices – he could destroy his career by fighting President Trump every step of the way, or he could change gears and pretend to support the America First movement and become a “star.”
Lindsey picked the latter, and while many people fell for the sudden change, and embraced Lindsey, many people were always leery of him.
After all, he’s all talk and zero action.

Well, after President Trump was ousted, thanks to the 2020 sham, it looks like chameleon Lindsey is back to his old ways.
He’s stabbing us in the back yet again, by being Joe’s “go-to” guy…
The Hill reported that Lindsey Graham is quietly emerging as the most frequent supporters of Biden’s judicial nominees.
“He believes presidents who win the election get to appoint judges, subject obviously to extreme cases, and I think he’s following through on it,” said Russell Wheeler, a fellow with the Brookings Institution who studies judicial confirmations.

Graham has touted his willingness to support a president’s judicial nominees even if he doesn’t agree with their philosophy, noting he was one of nine GOP senators who voted for Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s Supreme Court nomination in 2009 and one of five who supported Elena Kagan a year later.
“Senator Graham has long believed that under the Constitution the president has the right to select judges of their choosing and as long as they are qualified, they should generally be confirmed by the Senate,” Graham’s office said in a statement. “This is the traditional and customary role of the Senate in the judicial confirmation process.”
Graham’s support for Biden’s judicial nominees makes him increasingly an outlier within the Senate GOP caucus, where only Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), two well-known moderates, vote for Biden’s judicial nominees on the Senate floor with roughly the same frequency.
Wheeler described Graham’s position as “the old fashioned view” that used to be more widespread in the Senate.
“The assumption always used to be that when our person is in the White House, we’ll expect the same deference from senators of the other party. That’s all out the window now. It’s now, you know, dog eat dog,” he said.
Asked about Graham’s willingness to support judicial nominees, Thomas Jipping, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, noted “that’s been his pattern probably as long as he’s been in the Senate.”
Graham’s position of “Biden’s go-to guy” isn’t sitting well with many senators.
People like Josh Hawley, who have voted NO on all Biden’s nominees, and Tom Cotton, who’s only voted YES on two, aren’t impressed with Lindsey’s change of heart.
And while not many people know about what Lindsey is up to, he hasn’t flown completely under the radar.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson called it out in a segment earlier this year, and asked, “why are conservatives continuing to promote him and allowing him to continue to sit on the Judiciary Committee?”

He’s right – especially now that we all know how important these judges are in this new “activist” world we live in.
What Lindsey is doing is traitorous.
