Graham Calls AOC and Her Squad ‘a Bunch of Communists,’ Says Their Agenda Will Help 2020 Republicans

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) claimed that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “communist” ideas could bolster Republicans in the upcoming 2020 elections.

During an interview on “Fox and Friends,” host Ainsley Earhardt asked Graham how President Donald Trump can turn around current polls that show he would lose the election if it were held tomorrow.

Graham joked that the election won’t be held tomorrow, so the president still has time to improve those polls. However, he claimed that most of Trump’s electoral success won’t come from support for his policies, but rather from opposition to the policies being pushed by Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).

The senator claimed the group was a “bunch of communists” that will drive voters away from the Democratic Party so long as the president can “knock it down a notch” on his rhetoric about the group. Over the weekend, President Trump received backlash for racist remarks he made about the congresswomen after he claimed they were all born in other countries when Omar is the only immigrant in the group.

Watch Graham’s comments:

“We all know that A.O.C. and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel; they hate our own country. They’re calling guards along our border — the Border Patrol agents — concentration camp guards. They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for ‘the Benjamins.’ They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America. Don’t get down [with them]. Aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies.”

Graham called the policies touted by Ocasio-Cortez and her group “disgusting.” He claimed the group could “destroy the Democratic Party.”

“They’re socialists. They’re anti-Semitic. They stand for all the things that most Americans disagree with. Make them the face of the future of the Democratic Party. You will destroy the Democratic Party.”

As for Trump’s personal attacks, Graham urged the president to “aim higher.”

“You’re a good commander-in-chief. ISIS has been destroyed. Our economy is humming. You’re trying to get control of a broken immigration system. Their policies will destroy this country. Focus on what they want to do for America and to America, and compare it with what you’ve done. Don’t get personal. Don’t take the bait. This is not about a person. It is about a country.”

It remains unclear if President Trump will take Graham’s advice to stay out of the personal attacks and let the Democratic Party continue to tear each other apart. Given his history, the president will probably just keep doing what he’s been doing.

Senator Graham is absolutely correct. As long as those 4 Socialists/Marxists/Communists continue braying like the real jackasses they are, the GOP can expect to take back the House and keep the Senate and WH in 2020 and possibly in 2024.

BTW: AOC and Omar’s approval rating among their constituents now stands at less than 9% – lower than the approval rating for a root canal or hemorrhoids.

The Democraps are imploding and it’s heaven to watch. So glad Nance and her swamp creatures are getting what they deserve. President Trump is too good for this and just needs to sit back and enjoy the show as he keeps making America great.

I agree with Graham. The 4 ndividuals need to go but their policies need to be made the target of what’s wrong with the Democrats

I agree with Graham about the communism, but I think that it has infiltrated the whole democrat party.

The racism crap is just a feint on the part of the Left because they can get away with it. Some sheeple will follow any lead if it is anti-Trump. Most of the real race-baiters are liars who pretend to despise racism but use it at every opportunity for their own ends.Racism must be kept alive or they would have nothing to moan about other than climate change.
