Lindsey Graham Accidentally Wrecks Trump While Defending Him: 'He Doesn't Collude With His OWN Gov't

https://www.mediaite.com/donald-trump/lindsey-graham-accidentally-wrecks-trump-while-defending-him-he-doesnt-collude-with-his-own-government/


Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has gone to some extraordinary lengths to run interference for Donald Trump, lengths which now include arguing that Trump couldn’t have colluded with Russia because “He doesn’t collude with his own government.”

On this week’s edition of Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, host Maria Bartiromo asked Graham about being with Trump when Attorney General William Barr‘s memo summarizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report was released.

“What was the president’s mood? Were you guys talking about it?” she asked.

“Well, he was very pleased that everything he’d been saying for two years proved to be right,” Graham said. “If you know President Trump, and I’ve gotten to know him pretty well, there is no way he sat down with the Russians and came up with a plan and followed it.”

Then, Graham added “He doesn’t come up with, you know, he doesn’t collude with his own government. So this whole thing was ridiculous, if you know the president, and it’s proven to be ridiculous.”

1. As an aside, this is probably the 3rd time that Lindsey has mentioned how well he has gotten to know

Trump. Bragger.

2. "he doesn't collude with his own government"

 

Does he mean that Trump's government is the Russian government?

5. That's what I first heard, too.


Then the '"there's no way he came up with a plan and followed it.” and that sorta re-focused me.


Graham is sounding weirdly like a hypnotized person. Bragging the other day that Trump..." let me into his world".

That's just weird. Who talks like that besides 13 year old obsessed music star fans?

7. What I heard:

He doesn't listen to anyone in his own government. Which he doesn't. Lindsey just confirmed that Trump is a narcissistic, self-serving moron. After all, he knows him very well.

3. Did she ask what Lindsey and Barr had to speak about over dinner the other night?

 

other than it was a mistake to meet like that, of course. Oh, and how terrible it probably looks to the public.

4. So when did stupidity and incompetence become a defense?

He was too much of a dumb, disorganized wanker to have done it?

8. that's what I've been saying all along

He's a horrific thug intent on abusing power to whatever degree he can get away with, and he's subservient to the Russians, obviously, but he's not exactly "mastermind" material as far as conspiratorial plots go.
