Why Lindsay Graham and GOP politicians continue to back Trump?

They (Republican pols) all need to placate Trump supporters who are the base of the GOP. And so far almost all continue to back Trump! This election, though a bad loss, cemented Trump's power as his presence on the ballot brought out an additional 10 million more votes than last time (so did Joe of course with 11M more than Hillary).

If they don't, they will lose their jobs and power.

Even out of office, Trump will still have a great deal of power, because of his supporters (who love him more than the GOP).

He may try to block Biden from the sidelines. McConnell will no doubt go along as he already has signaled that he intends to roadblock Joe Biden.

7. Dick pics and texts with someone who's underage?

That's just my guess. Some people say and I don't know if it's true or not, but that's what I've heard. All I know is that it certainly seems reasonable.

6. Trump has shit on him forever.

And Lindsey knows it. I guess being a senator is worth the humiliation of defending Satan.

9. They are an organized crime family ...

and have been doing dirty deeds for far longer than Trump has been around. If Trump goes down for anything, he will sing. Best be nice..

as Scooter Libby said..."they turn in clusters as their roots connect them"

The next sentence should be what does Trump have on him that keeps Graham kissing Trump's ass

15. Graham just won re-election. There only reason is that he's become a true believer

For a lot of other prominent republicans you can guess they're pandering to the cultists or grifting. But what's to gain for graham? He won't be up for re-election for another 6 years so he doesn't need to pander to the cultists and he's a senator from the opposition party so there's no grift to be had.

The only thing that really explains it is that he's become a true believer. He should watch less fox news.

18. Graham is a remora.

He latches on to a more powerful figure and moves along plucking bits of power for himself. This is the reason he buddied up to McCain all those years, as McCain was a much more potent force in the Senate than Graham.

He is a parasite.

16. Wait 5 Months

When the dust settles and reality becomes reality even to the most partisan & biggest dimwits, it will be "Donald Who?" for many of them.
