That was serious bullshit right there.

And it inspired folks to give ole Lindsey Graham a new nickname.

Courtesy of The Hill:

The hashtag “LeningradLindsey” trended on Twitter Thursday after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) forced a controversial asylum bill through committee.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced a bill to overhaul U.S. asylum laws, waiving committee rules to force the bill through to the full Senate, where it likely won’t get the 60 votes it needs to pass.

But Graham’s move to push the bill through the panel outraged Democrats who say the South Carolina senator broke the rules on how lawmakers take up legislation in order to move a partisan bill along.

Hundreds started using the hashtag invoking Leningrad — the Soviet-era name of the Russian city of St. Petersburg — slamming Graham for the move.

“#LeningradLindsey is breaking procedural code, lying to the American people, and has betrayed the principles this country was founded upon,” one person tweeted.

It should also be noted that Graham was once a staunch advocate for holding Russia accountable for the 2016 election interference, but since the Mueller hearing has changed his tune almost completely and now wants everybody to move on from talking about it. 

My old question was “Just how many Republicans has Putin managed to recruit.”

But my new question is going to be “Which Republicans has Putin failed to recruit?”

It certainly appears he was successful with Lindsey Graham.

      If you are attempting to insinuate that Obama was a Russian asset, you are a special kind of stupid.

        “FLASHBACK: Obama to Russian President: ‘After My Election, I’ll Have More Flexibility’”

        Yeah I’m the same kind of stupid you called me when I notified you Trump was going to beat Hillary.

        Do you want more correct predictions?

    Ever since John McCain died Ms Lindsay has lost his conscience and what little smidgen of integrity he had.

      Maybe he never had a conscience, but he was reigned in by McCain.

      Miss Leningrad is up for re-election in 2020, if the Democrats play it right and get everyone out to vote, Miss Lindsey will be retiring to beautiful downtown Leningrad with his BFF Moscow Mitch.. maybe they can build a dacha together up in Siberia where they belong.
