The Republican Party has been completely betrayed. A stunning reversal just devastated the Senate GOP and all Trump supporters across the nation.
“I think Senator McConnell’s speech, he got a load off a chest obviously, but unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) referring to McConnell’s anti-Trump rant.
McConnell said that then-President Donald Trump committed “a disgraceful dereliction of duty” on January 6 and was “practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day.”
Understandably, Graham takes serious issue with McConnell’s framing of the violent Capitol riot — which everyone condemns, regardless of one’s take on the impeachment trial. Don’t let anyone claim differently.
Graham continued, saying that McConnell’s speech is something “you will see in 2022 campaigns.” Just imagine it: Democrat TV ads playing his speech and the mainstream media asking Republicans about it.
“I would imagine if you’re a Republican running in Arizona or Georgia or New Hampshire, where we have a chance to take back the Senate, they may be playing Senator McConnell’s speech and asking about it as a candidate,” said Graham.
