Hillary Clinton doesn’t understand why Lindsey Graham is so loyal to Trump

The former secretary of state criticized the Republican senator for putting aside his values ​​and joining Trump as if he were a sect, without realizing how “dangerous” the former president is currently.

Hillary Clinton strongly disagrees with Republicans who align themselves with former President Donald Trump and his ideologies as part of a “cult,” particularly targeting Sen. Lindsey Graham as someone she believes abandoned her values ​​when Trump took office in 2016. .

During an interview for MSNBC, the former secretary of state criticized Republican Graham for the loyalty he continues to show to the former president, unaware, as she said, of the “inconsistencies and dangers” Trump currently faces.

It’s important to remember that Lindsey Graham was one of the lawmakers who ran in the Republican Party and lost to Trump for the 2016 presidential nomination.

“When Trump was elected, Senator Graham joined him,” Clinton said after showing a photo of her with a group of Senate colleagues, including Graham.

Clinton also rebuked the South Carolina senator for her efforts to avoid testifying in a Fulton County, Georgia, grand jury investigation into efforts to nullify the 2020 presidential election.

“I find it puzzling that someone who was always on the conservative side, don’t get me wrong, has gotten so into the cult that goes along with the big lie. It seems to be, you know, moving in a direction that I think anyone with half a sense of American history knows is going to hurt us,” the former first lady shared.

In 2016 Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in the election, now highlighting that claims by Trump and his supporters that the 2020 election was stolen due to widespread fraud have been roundly rejected by the courts and officials. electoral.

“This midterm, we’ve seen a lot of ads from Republicans running for anything that promotes crime. Crime is the problem,” said Clinton, who was linked to the attack on Paul Pelosi last week.

“But when an 82-year-old man is attacked by an intruder in his own home, they don’t seem too upset about it,” she stressed.

Republicans have blamed the Biden administration for the rise in insecurity and crime across the country, it has now become a top priority for voters with 60% saying violent crime is a top issue, ranking only behind economics and gun politics.

Donald Trump called the attack on the husband of the Speaker of the House of Representatives a “terrible thing.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also condemned the attack, as did former Vice President Mike Pence.
