The Intercept’s Mehdi Hasan edited together a brutal video showing just how much of a hypocrite Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) really is.
Hasan put together a series of clips to show just how drastic Graham’s view of Donald Trump has changed over the years.
Hasan, who labels Graham “the most shameless man in American politics,” argues that Graham has made by far the most dramatic change of any Trump-skeptical Republican since the president’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“There’s no position he won’t abandon, no U-turn he won’t perform, no lie that he won’t tell,” he said.
In one part of the video, Hasan shows footage of Graham attacking reporters for calling Trump a “kook” or a racist — before cutting to footage of Graham denouncing Trump in exactly those terms.
“He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” Graham said at one point.
He also hammers Graham for saying that he would need to see evidence of a crime before voting to remove Trump from office, even though he said no crime was required to impeach former President Bill Clinton in 1999.
“Impeachment is about cleansing the office!” he told the Senate more than 20 years ago.
“The office that needs cleansing most,” quips Hasan. “Is the office of the senior senator from South Carolina.”
