On Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol, 2019 Lindsay Graham sat down for a contentious interview with 2016 Lindsay Graham. All of the statements in this interview are direct quotes from Senator Graham.
2016 Lindsay: Trump is a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. You can’t nominate a nut job. He is just generally a loser as a person.
2019 Lindsay: I have the President’s back.
2016 Lindsay: Donald Trump, I think, is the most unprepared person I’ve ever met to be Commander-in-Chief. I think he’s a kook. I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office.
2019 Lindsay: To every Republican, if you don’t stand behind this president, we’re not going to stand behind you.
2016 Lindsay: You know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell. He is a political car wreck.
2019 Lindsay: I personally like him. We play golf together. He’s nice to me.
2016 Lindsay: Donald Trump is the world’s biggest jackass. I wish he would leave the party. This is not who we are as a party, this is not who we are as a nation. He’s not fit to be President of the United States.
2019 Lindsay: I’m the happiest dude in America right now. We’ve got a President that I’ve been dreaming of. If you don’t want to get re-elected, you’re in the wrong business.
