Lindsey Graham Harassed by Angry Trump Supporters Shouting ‘Traitor’ at Airport

Trump supporters swarmed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) at Reagan National Airport for breaking from the president’s attempts to overturn the election, social media videos show.

Before the angry crowd began shouting “traitor,” one man can be heard saying, “You work for us.”

One woman yelled, “One day [you] will not be able to walk down the street. It is today.”

Watch the video below:

Security guards followed Graham through the airport while Trump supporters continued to verbally harass him.

“You are a traitor to the country. You know it was rigged…you garbage human being. It’s going to be like this forever, wherever you go for the rest of your life,” one woman said.

She proceeded to call him a “piece of sh*t.”

Watch her comments below:

On Wednesday, Graham made it clear he was no longer interested in helping Trump with his efforts to flip his defeat, as IJR previously reported.

“Trump and I, we’ve had a hell of a journey. I hate it being this way. Oh my God, I hate it. From my point of view, he’s been a consequential president, but today, first thing you’ll see. All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough. I’ve tried to be helpful,” Graham said.

He added, “I don’t buy this, enough is enough. We gotta end it.”

Graham was not the only senator to be harassed by Trump supporters while he was traveling.

Earlier this week, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) encountered angry Trump supporters in both the Salt Lake City airport and on a plane, as IJR previously reported.

“You’re a joke, absolute joke. It’s disgusting shame,” one woman said.

On the plane he was also met with “traitor” chants.

Last month, Romney expressed his frustration with Trump over his refusal to concede the election.

  1. watch what biden announces next Thursday and you will see how the democratic party robs the USA Tax payers with biden bailing out the poorly run democratic states/counties/cities…. it will be unprecedented if you think $600 is peanuts… after the announcement you will know that even $2000 is miniscule to how much he plans to give to his buds…

  2. I unfortunately live in SC and I have no sympathy for this corrupt, sycophant! He is like a rat drowning, willing to climb over the backs of the other rats to save himself.

  3. Lindsey Graham will be an interesting study for future political science students. How a corrupt flip-flopper bows to the money that controls him. Do you REALLY believe that he made those flips on his own accord? Come on! Don’t be so naïve.

    1. Lindsey is discovering that “You reap what you sow,” General. Lindsey promoted Trump mis-information when it benefitted HIM PERSONALLY. That tactic no longer in Lindsey’s interests.

      I have a different take on Lindsey’s actions. He does not appear to me to be directed by outside influences—He appears to be guided by his PERSONAL compulsion to be near those in POWER. Lindsey (with McCain) was a frequent visitor to the Obama Oval Office and despite his comments prior to the 2016 election, he was a frequent presence on Trump’s golf foursome and avid defender of all things Trump. Soon he will be a frequent visitor to the Biden White House.

      From my vantage point, Lindsey is guided by what benefits Lindsey—not the residents of South Carolina, not the country, not his donors–just Lindsey. Trump is out of power in 2 weeks, even if Lindsey had supported the coup. Lindsey can count votes—they were not there in the House OR the Senate to overturn the election results. Lindsey has moved on.

      1. Lindsey would not be able to retain his position of power without money and, in Washington, money is still king.

        Don’t be naïve, Phyllis. Votes can be bought for VERY little money, a thousand or two. Graham needs hundreds of thousands. The control of money in politics is way more corrupting than you lead yourself to believe.

        Does he have personal ambitions? Without a doubt, but they are fed and enabled by money.
