Lindsey Graham's baffling defense of Trump, Kavanaugh

Senator Lindsey Graham had a conversation with Editor in Chief of The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg, at The Atlantic Festival about Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Trump and the Senate Judiciary hearing with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Goldberg begins this exchange by asking Graham about Trump mocking Dr. Ford at the rally Tuesday. Graham defends Trump's despicable performance by bringing up something James Carville said about Paula Jones in the nineties, about dragging a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park.

"President Trump went through a factual rendition that I didn't particularly like and I would tell him knock it off; 'You're not helping,'"


"But it can be worse, you can actually kill somebody's cat and puncture their tires to get them to shut up..."

Uh, what?

"The point being we've come a long way."

Wait, is Lindsey Graham really saying what we were seeing with Trump's mocking of a sexual assault victim's Congressional testimony is progress...

The crowd boos him when he says Dr. Ford was treated respectfully and Kavanaugh was treated "like crap."

"Well, boo yourself."

He also has the nerve to say that a Republican could never get away with holding up a Supreme Court pick for political reasons.

*cough*Merrick Garland*cough*
