The media is currently ****ting themselves big poopies because they all think Lindsey Graham is gay but are saying that Rep Omar said it without stating evidence. She never made the claim.

Rep. Omar never suggested that Lindsey Graham was gay. She suggested that Trump has something on him, which is a theory that a lot of people in Washington have asked about in the past few months.

CNN anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto pushed back Thursday on Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) suggestion that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is "somehow compromised" because of his support for President Trump.

CNN anchors challenge Dem on claim that Graham 'is somehow compromised'


What's happening here is that Old Guard politics is being challenged by new guard politics and the old guard is picking fights with the new guard b/c they are losing the war. Everyone in their right mind knows that Graham (who has a staff of mostly men) is gay but that doesn't stop the media from attacking Omar for simply stating her opinion.

New guard...old guard...doesn't matter. If CNN pushes back on a Democratic politician, that politician is toast.

Anyway, Graham isn't compromised by Trump. He's compromised by his donors. That's the way he's been his entire Congressional career.

So then would you want to know what Donor told him to support Trump somewhere in the year 2016 when he completely flipped like a soft noodle?

The moderate Graham had been historically unpopular in S.C. and Lindsey doesn't want Trump to have him primary'd in 2020. Hence the Graham political flip-flop.

Graham knows that with our rising debt, or rising trade deficit, rising concentration of wealth, and our increasing social costs, the USA is heading to hard times if we dont get our economy in order. This is a direct threat to the multinational order the elites hope to keep.

I for one do not believe it magic that keeps America afloat, and i believe we are effected by the same economics everyone else is. We made our money rebuilding the destruction of WW2. Whats next for a nation richly popupulated by hammerers and press operators? Alexa made in the USA?

Something drastic certainly did happen to Graham and blackmail certainly fits into Trumps repertoire of dirty deeds. He hired an Israeli firm to did up dirt on supporters of the Iran agreement so this is similar.

You have no clue what made America great. Our middle class made it great and it was by building America and supplying the goods for millions of Americans that suddenly had the incomes to afford them. Europe was broke and certainly could not afford them. We gave and lent money to Europe so they could rebuild themselves not the other way around. If you are interested in economics you might research the history of trade wars and you will find that they benefit no one. Trump is either clueless about that fact or is purposely trying to destroy our economy.

Sure. But I think it's more important that he tell the voters in Georgia what his donors tell him to do.

And what are they supposed to do when he talks out of both sides of his mouth within the same year?

She's just another Dem who tries to weaponize homosexuality and those who are still in the closet because of it. It disgusts me. Anyone can see through her little game.
So we have freshman Dem Representatives who have so far:
Telegraphed their anti-Semitism
Implied Israel doesn't exist
Shouted expletives about impeaching Trump, "mf'er"
Bullied a man because he might be gay
Run her mouth instead of learning her job.

What a bunch of lovely women on the Left.

Moderate Graham was unpopular in S.C. Graham realizes that he is vulnerable if Trump would primary him in 2020 like he did to Utah Rep. Mia Love in 2018.

The flip-flop is for political survival. Graham also realizes that a Jekyll-Hyde persona will garner more invites to the Sunday morning circuit. Face-time is precious in the political game.

Lefty policies have destroyed the middle class.

LOL "Lefty" policies CREATED the middle class. Was FDR a "lefty"?

Lefty policies rise the poor up to the middle class, eliminating the middle class and making only the rich and the poorer.
