Donald Trump is back in the spotlight thanks to his much-anticipated speech at CPAC this coming weekend, which was good news for Seth Meyers, who dropped all-in on Thursday night on the Republican Party’s refusal to leave the former president behind them – and no one illustrates this trend more pathetically than Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
“Republicans cornered by Trump, no matter how bad he was for the party because they agreed with him,” Late at night the host explained. “They were engaged in the same project and wanted the same things. With a few exceptions, they were all Trump. In particular, he says, Graham “literally wore the same clothes when they went golfing, like a Chihuahua whose owner makes him wear matching outfits.
Of course, Graham’s recent reinstatement of Trump comes after he finally nearly denounced him on the day of the riot on Capitol Hill last month with a heated speech on the Senate floor. “I believe he was reciting a monologue from the play by Tennessee Williams A tram named De-Liar! Meyers joked.
“Well, it won’t surprise you to learn that Graham almost immediately did a 180,” he continued. “He probably thought that by exposing Trump’s bad behavior once, he would co-host a podcast with Obama and Springsteen.”
“And by the way, at the same time as he openly encourages a former president who tried to overturn an election, incited a violent insurgency and regularly called for the imprisonment of his political enemies,” the host said, Graham also calls President Biden’s COVID relief package divisive, despite being extremely popular in the polls.
Earlier this week, Graham called the plan “the furthest thing from unity I’ve seen.”
“Really ?! This is the farthest thing from unity you’ve seen? Meyers asked.“ Was your vision obstructed by the Trump flag rioters hanging from the Capitol? ”
