  1. Senator Graham, On the one in a billion chance that you may see this…
    I think most of us have seen the real you and even if we disagreed with you we respected you and even liked you as a human being.
    Most of us think the real you is still in there deep inside but because of some kind of threat from Donald Trump and what he may know about something in your past you won't let Lindsey out anymore.
    Senator Graham don't let this be your legacy. You may be surprised at the number of human beings who will come along side you. You may also find peace and rest for your troubled soul if you just live in truth, whatever that may be.
    We miss the real Lindsey☺

  2. Seems to me to be clear that Trump has some kind of blackmail operation going on regarding at least Graham. Poor guy Graham is so weak as a person that he´s ready to "sell" everything not to be exposed, sad and tragic! His eyes are ”asking help” everytime he´s on TV.

  3. Leningrad Lindsey Moscow Mitch & Putin's Puppet what a bunch of bunts!

  4. Such arrogance – Lindsey "Trump" Graham is a vile POS

  5. Lindsey Graham has totally lost focus. He's making this all about him. Isn't he supposed to be a leader? Leaders concern themselves with those they serve, not their own selfish, self-centered interests. How many times has he whined in this segment about no one showing up for his precious bill? Get over yourself Lindsey. You are not fit to lead. You are simply doing the bidding of the bully occupant in the White House. It seems you've sold your soul to him.

  6. Lindsay Graham is a vile human being

  7. Trump must know about all of Miss Lindsay Graham's indiscretions with other men. That's the only explanation as to why he's going lock step with Trump's agenda now.

  8. Lennengrad Lindsey is a criminal

  9. We Are President Donald Trump Die-Hard Supports & On The Rise. Demo-CRAPS are Trapped Between Sharp & Powerful Claws of US PATRIOTS. The American Eagle Has Landed.
    Like 2016,,, We Will Destroy Demo-CRAPS in 2020 A G A I N ,,,EXPECT US !

  10. republicans are low iQ and low income voters

  11. lindsey grahamn is a compromised russian asset jeffrey epstein has blackmail tapes on all these operatives…. trump cabal has taken over law and order democracy…. nunes gowdy mcconnell grahamn all russian or chinese operatives…1100$ vile of insulin come on america we are being duped….children tortured for profit! wake up amerikkka

  12. Lindsey may need to FIRE he/she who is giving him bad/incomplete info…a funeral for a family member is probably the BIGGEST schedule conflict!!

  13. Classic republican strategy, if they can't get something accomplished, they just go to their book of dirty tricks.

  14. Didn’t graham say trump was a vile disgusting person?

  15. Democrats are the reason we have a border crisis but wont help Trump fix it.

  16. Leahy been up there 50 years and look at the mess this country is in. Disgusting puke.

  17. Lindsey has a lot of balls to complain. Look what his party and Mitch McConnell are doing to ALL the Dem's Bills now, – NO VOTE PERIOD- Look what they did to Obama throughout his Presidency. The height of hypocrisy. Lindsey has no integrity, he's Donnie Dumb Dumb's lap dog.

  18. Senator Lindsay Graham prior to castration: "He's 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."

  19. It's sad how People who supposed to be somewhat similar in making good decisions clashes over the simplest things. In my experience I cannot seem to wrap my head around how Someone is upset with me because they incriminated themselves bringing evidence to a Hearing that would not make sense until after the Hearing. The Hearing comes first. We discuss what is the dispute. If we come to a disagreement. We show the Judge our proof. He decides for us. How can our Representatives have all these debates, arguments, and issues and we are still at a standstill with corruption in our local Courts. How can Someone go to the wrong jurisdiction to get an unlawful order. Show the order as evidence at the right jurisdiction and think that that is good for their case. I'm the one who was supposed to bring the unlawful document. It's obvious I was trying to help them. To me this is the World's most craziest People. Go into the Hearing to incriminate themselves. Wrong is wrong. It catches you when you least expect it when Someone is trying to help you.

  20. I challenge Sen. Graham to Mario Kart 64 for the chair.
