At a recent event in South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham portrayed Robin as Trump’s Batman at a recent campaign event in his home state. It was a “bad optics moment” for the politician.

Trump then stepped in and defended Graham, although the particular words he used in this pursuit did not help soften audiences’ hearts.

Via Politico:

Donald Trump defended political ally Lindsey Graham after a crowd of supporters at a campaign rally booed the South Carolina senator in his home state Saturday.

Graham received a loud boo when he addressed the crowd at Pickens, S.C. When Trump spoke later that afternoon, he urged his supporters not to reject Graham and instead accept him as a valuable asset for his bid for reelection in 2024.

“We’re going to love him,” Trump said of Graham. “I know it’s half and half, but when I need some of those liberal votes, he’s always there to help me get them. We’ve got some pretty liberal people, but he’s good. We know the good ones.”

It’s hard not to wonder: Did Trump really believe that by defending Graham, he would be able to boost his image among the senator’s base because of Graham’s ability for working with liberals? Was this Trump’s clever, sly way to throw Graham under the bus?

It probably hurt Graham’s narcissistic, little black heart. It’s great to see that almost no one likes the little swindler, despite how omnipresent he is in corporate state media.

Graham used to be a favorite of the Clinton machine and of the Democrat Party in general. But that changed when he began flirting with Trump, however tepidly or schizophrenically, in his first campaign. He’s now a pariah both on the left and the right.

Graham is still a favorite of the Deep State because they can count on him to promote more war. It’s actually his main concern as a politician. You can’t name any other cause Graham championed during his tenure in office besides starting wars everywhere.

He is salivating at the thought of all the Russians who have died because the military-industrial complex facilitated their deaths. This complex, which generated immense profit and power both for it and its proxies like Graham, has been a major supporter of Graham’s career ever since he arrived in Washington.
