Why did Lindsey Graham say "It's my job to explain this to the president"?

Does he not agree with the late John McCain's statement that ""We are not the President's subordinates, we are his equals"?

I know itís wishful thinking but Iím holding out some hope Graham is playing him. His performance yesterday was just bizarre.

way that's true.

7. Just from reading the Woodward book, it sounds like Lindsey is the " 'splainer-In-Chief."

Trump doesn't understand anything about anything. Lindsey is like the patient parent who has to teach a kid about not crapping his pants his entire life.

I feel like turning it inside out so I don't have to look at him.

As a U.S. Senator, it is his duty to serve the president

just like what they do in Russia

When Reagan was shot Al Haig said "I am in charge here" and Lindsey was inspired by it.

16. Lindsay needs to be watched.

Impolite to say anything but unfavorable things about Lindsey here today especially. However, 'Lindsay' is very sharp and outspoken for a republicon.
In his trump remark, there may have been more to it then what one would guess reading these type threads today. Humor, often needed, and is often telling, as Freud noted.

18. Because BLOTUS is so FUCKING STUPID he doesn't know how any of this works!


When he was asked in an interview about the FBI re-opening the investigation, he said he'd leave it up to the Senate to do what they want.

So Lindsay has to go and explain, "No Mr. President, you have to authorize it."

FUCKING MORON!
