Senator Lindsey Graham just abruptly changed his tune about President Trump.

Graham once called Trump a “jacka**,” however, he is now calling him “open-minded.”

Graham spoke at the South Carolina Republican convention and praised Trump:

“What have I learned about our president? He’s curious, he asks questions, and he knows no fear, and he’s under siege unlike any president I’ve ever seen in my entire life … They don’t believe he won; I do.”

Graham added, “Now Obama was somewhat hard for us, but I thought we were somewhat respectful.”

The senator then trashed Obama by labeling him a “community organizer who apologized for America every turn all over the world.”

“Let me tell you that you have a commander in chief that’s not going to let this country get walked over anymore,” Graham exclaimed.

Then things got a little weird when Graham began gloating about how much Trump calls him:

“He calls and I’m honored that he would call me and I want to help him,” Graham said.

“He calls me when I’m asleep and he calls me after I go to bed. I wish he would rest more. I gave him my phone number. So far so good.”

Why do you think he changed his mind about Trump?

    • Blackmail. After all Graham has acknowledged about goldenturd, this would not naturally proceed out of his mouth. Blackmail seems most likely. How involved is graham with Putin’s crew?

    • Graham has seen the handwriting on the wall and has changed the direction of his pandering pucker accordingly. Simple!

    • OMG, EITHER THIS IS TOTAL FAKE NEWS OR SOMEONE SLIPPED GRAHAM A TALL GLASS OF ORANGE KOOLADE. DON’T FAIL US NOW GRAHAM YOU AND JOHN WERE THE ONLY STRONG VOICES LEFT IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

  1. It is usually about THE MONEY! 45 most likely promised him money for his re-election. ….or maybe 45 has something on him and threatened to expose him.

  2. I’ve always said Linsey Graham talks out of the both sides of his mouth. Obama was one of the best President and he never apologized for America. Another republican lie . I guess Graham thinks a man who,rapes, grabs women and lies constantly and is a White Supremacist terrorist is a great President. It is time Graham is voted out. All these republicans have put our lives in danger by not doing anything about this disgusting man he calls President. You can’t have it both ways Graham .

  3. “Light In The Loafers” Lindsey is as flakey as a large pan of puff pastry. I don’t want him in our government, let alone care what he says about Trump, one way or the other. He’s another example of why TERM LIMITS are so needed for members of Congress!

  4. Graham made these statements in May, 2017. Words between Graham and Trump have since shifted. Why did you post an article that’s so terribly misleading? (BTW — I’m a true progressive… just not one who like us to all look stupid with misinformative articles like this one).

  5. Who knows why the turn around? But it is safe to say something major occurred. We will see. Personally, I look forward to hearing from Rachel Maddow tonight!!!

  6. Just backing a Republican and growing into a pussy. That means Drumpf will be grabbing him instead of calling him. AND he’s afraid that 30 some% will cost him an election. Lost all respect for Lindsey.

  7. Did he go missing for a while? Long enough to go to a Russian re-education and brain washing camp maybe?? Did some Russian garbage collector give him a suitcase full of cash late one night? Did Dump have a plumber come to his home and install his very own gold toilet??? Dump “open minded” HAH. He should have a “For Rent” sign on his forehead.

  8. Either he is bi-polar or this story is not accurately reflecting what Graham said, not sure. He has definitely come out strongly against Trump very recently. I am sure though that he has always hated Obama and I do think he is a jackass.

  9. An open-minded jackass: just what America needs to become “great again”.

    And you thought “Bizarro World” was fictional?

  10. No mystery here. Trump and his war room GOP cronies are planning for the 2020 election.
    The strategic aim is to assure Reuplican power stays in the WH and the Congress.
    The tactic is to seduce Trump’s opposition and outspoken critics into falling into line with support.
    Seduction will be either promises of powerful positions after GOP victory in 2020, or money disguised
    as ‘funds for pet projects’ in their states.
    My only question is : which Cabinet position did Trump offer Graham? Or will trump have Graham replace McConnell? Or Jeff Sessions?
    Or did Trump offer him the VP slot on the ticket? It has to be ‘yuge’ for this dramatic turnabout by Lindsay.

  11. Used to be called CYA, cover your ass. Although for the life of me I can’t imagine anyone wanting to go down with a dinking ship.

  12. I think, when he went back home, he found out how much “we, the people” like Trump and how large we are in number!

  13. ONce a repug, always a repug….you can’t scrape enough shit off your shoes when you step in it and live in it.

  14. He can bRAG ABOUT HOW THE PRESIDENT CALLS HIM BUT DID HE EVER CONSIDER THAT MAYBE HE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL TALK TO THE BOOB

  15. Interesting to say the least…
    what may be happening is Grahm is moving into the space left open by Bannon exit…trump is a whiney needy little girl…he needs constant reassurance from someone, who, does not matter so much. Bold move to try to take the lead…lets see what happens. my bet is he gets in for a few months until trump dumps him too…

  16. I don`t know but the way he is changing his mind and talking like Trump I think some one should test the water their drinking. Unless it`s not water their drinking it`s whiskey maybe.

  17. Miss Lindseybelle is so excited when ANY man calls her–after all that waiting by her phone–that she gets the vapors over it 🙂

  18. Bought him off with something. These guys always have a price they can be bought with. Slimmer takes a shot at Obama whenever they need to shift blame. I thought, just maybe, there was a smidgen of integrity in him. I was wrong….though it doesn’t surprise me.

  19. Trump probably promised him the moon & the stars since he has lots of openings now! Typical rethug moves! Do a 180 when the money is right!

  20. If Senator Lindsey Graham actually did a 180 on tRump, again. Then there has to be a real scandal that tRump is holding over Lindsey’s head. tRump would know how to do that because he’s had a plenty of experience dealing with the Putin blackmail scandal.

    • Trump never made racist statements you brain dead moron. Listen to his full speech, not what CNN feeds you

    • What racist statement did Trump make? Show a link to the video of proof. Ill be waiting. I’m sure a LONG time because there is none!

      • Yeah I knew there would be no response because you’re a lying sack of crap like all liberals who make these bullshit claims. Hey Dianne, have you ever asked yourself are you the real racist? Try asking yourself the same questions of which you ask of others the ask themselves and see if any of them would apply to you? I bet you would come back with the conclusion that you’re the real racist.

        Just remember if there is a racist around every rock and bush, it might be YOU who that is the real racist.

      • Boy, you really are looking for one, aren’t you? “What racist statement did Trump make?” You mean over the last 50 years, or just in the last week? There’s not a forum space big enough to even begin to list them all, but I’ll say it to you in four words from the past, “The Central Park Five”; and as for ‘currently’, if the response by him to the Charlottesville event, of him not condemning those haters “immediately” and instead saying there was “right and wrong on both sides”, doesn’t prove to you that he’s a racist and supports Neo-Nazis, then I guess nothing will, huh? Trump is going to be impeached or forced out of office within the next 6 months. Guaranteed. The bulk of the rest of the nation is NOT in favor of facism and Nazis, I’m afraid. Far from it. We live in “America”.

    • The republikkkans were ‘somewhat respectful’ towards President Obama? Thats laughable. Obviously graham has been ‘spoken’ to by trump or one of his racist grubs to ‘support him or else’. Or maybe he is hoping for one of the many whitehouse jobs that are currently vacant at the moment.

  21. Most of the rep. party is just like Donald Trump. Trump is just bold and racist enough to say it.

  22. The convention was Saturday, May 13 2017 so why post this now. It makes me wonder if it is true at all. A number of things on this site seem questionable to me and I am TRUE BLUE.

    • Dear Diana,

      As you can see, the article category is FLASHBACK.

      Thank you for your understanding.

      Kind regards.

  23. Russian mafia got some dirt on him. Chump is just a money launderer for them. How the hell do you think he has been able to keep his money when he is such an easy target for a run of the mill conman? He’s a slave to his ego and that makes him an easy mark.

  24. Because Trump knows how to flatter people when he wants something…using Graham for his own personal gratification because Graham spoke out against. Trump is the Great Manipulator, and Graham doesn’t know how to check his ego at the door.

  25. the d00nald came out last week against sra. Lindsay and the old coot wet his pants. Now he is just another cretin in the d00nalds endless swamp.

  26. Kindsay Graham has always acted like a pendulum! To me, the Republican Party of conservatives is gone. Now it had splintered into 3 factions: 1 ) The old conservatives -always racists- like McCain, Flake, Tim Scott, sometimes I named Graham, but then he said the opposite. 2) The Trump as….lickers such as Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, McConnell, John King, etc. all idiots who are apologetic of Trump’s racist, insulting, misogynistic, violent, etc. comments. 3) And the violent Tea Party self-righteous, religious fundamentalist bigots of the ultra-right-wing of the ex-Republican Party such as Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Greg Abbott, Ken Paxton, Dan Patrick, and all politicians who are constantly mentioning the Bible- who is supposed to be separated from the government.

  27. So he says he may be willing to work with the president and the first thing all of you do is start bashing him and calling him names. Heaven forbid that something good might come out of this.

  28. The question really is…Did he ever change his mind? The gop pretty much all lie. They say what they think is good to say at the moment.

  29. Graham wants a position in the WH and he won’t stop sniffing Trump’s butt until he gets one. None of those jackasses have any ethics, class, decorum. They don’t care who they trample over to get what they want or how they get it. Lies, deceitful behaviour, manipulation. Who cares as long as they get to milk the cow….

  30. I agree with diane meyer simon…. I think that he is bucking for a WH Appointment and is an ASS KISSER or he wouldnt want him calling him day and night!! The whole thing STINKS!!! Trump is a bully and thats the only reason these people are succumbing to his blatent vicious forcefullness! We’ll see where their allegiance falls when Trump is impeached!!

  31. What a 2-faced, 2-timing hypocrite!! Graham KNOWS all the crap Trump has committed and NOW he’s praising him? And saying nice things about Trump? He’s got to be up to something!! But to have Graham kiss up to Trump makes me want to puck!! I’ll be sure to share this information when Graham runs for re-election!!

  32. 1. Incipient brain tumor. 2. He lost a bet. 3. He wants to be Mike Pence’s VP. 4. He’s seen hypocrisy serve everyone else well, so why the heck not?

  33. I believe Graham has realized he was wrong about President Trump and he is making amends. I am happy to see this change in Lindsey Graham. President Trump is trying to help our country not hurt it like some of the past politicians have done and like the DNC’s are still doing. We need a strong leader not someone that allows everyone to walk on the USA.

    • DAMN WOMAN! I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU LIKE I DO ANYONE WHO SHOWS SUCH OVERWHELMING TRUST IN A PERSON LIKE TRUMP.YOU’RE EITHER WORKING W/ HALF A BRAIN OR YOU ARE JUST PLAIN, SIMPLY “STUPID.” TURN OFF THE FOX CHANNEL AND STOP WATCHING HANNITY WHO IS THE BIGGEST LIAR OF THEM ALL,TRUMP,RYAN,PENCE,HANNITY.AND THE G.O.P. THAT ARE TOO SCARED TO SPEAK OUT.

    • And, perhaps, someone who will not let the USA run over everyone else, and, not let the KKK, Nazi Party,etc. run the country. All sides make mistakes in politics, it’s a question of what is the true nature of those in high offices. I think that everyone now knows what #45 really believes, not that we didn’t know it before Charlottesville. Hypocrites all!

  34. This is OLD NEWS. The date says August 21, 2017, but the sparsely-written paragraphs are quoting Sen. Graham as he addressed the South Carolina Republican Convention. Which I’m pretty sure was not today. Guessing it was a year or so ago.

    • Dear Nanjo,

      As you can see, the article category is FLASHBACK.

      Thank you for your understanding.

      Kind regards.

      • But I seen Gram on the news today glowing all over Trump for his speech today about Afghanistan I am wondering what is going on here at the time. I hope it is true that he is in full support of our President it is about time they start getting behind him and getting the things done we put them in office to do. I just hope it is not short lived. tired of the back stabbing.

  35. Probably bought off by Trump. Wait until trump turns on him. It will happen. It happens to everyone eventually.

  36. Like Trump, reversing himself with no explanation is as automatic as breathing is to most of us. He has either been promised a big reward, or a big threat if he continued speaking sanely.

  37. The usual reason they want war and its called war time profiteering! There is no good solution to Afghanistan and the president and congress know it. We have been in the country for far to long with no real positive result. For the president this is his way to distract us from all the crap that his time at the helm! We should not allow more of our fine service men and women to die and be injured for no good reason!

  38. I was very shocked when Graham and McCail started acting like democrats and going against President Trump.
    I lost all respect for both of them.
    It sad when both party’s go against a President that is trying to do the right thing for our country yet when the former WH resident broke law after law and they couldn’t build up the nerves to stop him.
    I guess the kick backs must have been very good.

    • Let me guess… you, like tRump, watch unbalanced Faux News. I guess you’re ok with an autocratic, narcissistic, misogynist running the country…into the ground. Duh.

    • I am curious about he laws that Obama broke. Please list them here because I really want to look them up.

  39. Trump is a White Nationalist and has told us all on T.V. about his affiliation with that group. So, considering both sides of the groups in the protest in Virginia – were both groups of good people but wrong at that protest. Incredibly enough, protestors can express hatred – but making them both side to be hate groups – is just wrong. In addition, our nation has allowed the former Civil War and their Confederate exist in their cities, communities and state. However, the civil war and confederacy was about the division of our country with their belief’s and slavery. It is very important to know – that the Confederacy lost the Civil War and the United States joined its states to makes us a stronger union. I can not believe that people are stuck in the times of Civil War times – and value these statutes and confederate values – when we all live in a United States of America as a Country and not divided grounds.

  40. Why is that people keep saying we value these statues when all they are, are reminders of what evil they were when this country was fighting for freedom and only to remind us of that. We must move on, leave the statues there and learn the history behind them so that we don’t repeat it again.
