“He’s a piece of shit.” — @AmbassadorRice on Lindsey Graham

Rice, who is on tour for her new book, spoke with the hosts of “Pod Save the World” this week about the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and the Turkish invasion of Kurdish-held territory in Syria. During one fiery moment, however, former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes brought up the Benghazi attack to add context to Trump’s decisions surrounding foreign policy.
“You have to understand Benghazi to understand [President] Trump,” Rhodes said during a preview of the episode posted on Twitter.
“Right, because Lindsey Graham isn’t just a piece of shit now,” Tommy Vietor, another host and former Obama adviser, replied.
“He’s been a piece of shit,” Rice interjected. “I said it. I said it, dammit. Finally. He’s a piece of shit.”
There is literally no room to argue that Lindsey Graham is not a piece of shit.
His about face when it comes to Trump is appalling, and his current role as Trump sycophant makes my skin crawl.
Lindsey Graham could have been a Republican hero in a time when this country needs a Republican hero more than ever, but instead he offered his soft underbelly as sign of submission and has been devotedly slobbering over Trump’s orange tinted nutsack like it was an Everlasting Gobstoper.
Keep watching the clip at the top to see Rice talk about how Fox vilifies certain people to keep their audiences in a constant state of agitation.
