Senator Graham’s explosive and methodical destruction of the sandbagging Democrats has earned him a new ally in the White House. The Daily Caller reports:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a point of applauding Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham for his impassioned defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and criticism of the Democrats handling of the confirmation process.
When it was his chance to say a few words near the end of the hearing on Thursday, Graham held nothing back, launching into a full-throated condemnation of the Democrats for turning the confirmation process into an “unethical sham” that had created a living “hell” for Kavanaugh and calling on his fellow Republicans to confirm the nominee, or else legitimize “the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics.”
Sanders took to Twitter to praise Graham for his strong statement. “[Sen. Lindsey Graham] has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined,” she wrote. “God bless him.”
This entire process has raised levels of invective to a new level in politics, and will have a large impact on the midterm election.
