Scarborough Thinks Graham ‘Sold His Soul’ to Trump — Graham Puts Americans First in His Response

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) isn’t letting MSNBC host Joe Scarborough get under his skin after the host claimed the senator “sold his soul” for President Donald Trump’s support.

During Tuesday’s segment, Scarborough claimed Graham is using his support for Trump as a way to keep Republican voters behind him ahead of his run for re-election in 2020.

“Lindsey Graham has a Republican primary in 2020,” the “Morning Joe” host said. “He was having trouble in the state of South Carolina, and recent polls show that among Republican senators, he has one of the better approval ratings with the rank and file in the Republican Party in the state of South Carolina.”

He continued with his accusation that Graham “sold his soul” to Trump:

“He basically sold his soul, sold his political soul, for, you know, 20 percentage points inside his own Republican Party. I guess, unlike John McCain, Lindsey Graham didn’t have the confidence and the assurance in his voters that he could speak truth to power and still get re-elected in his state.”

Watch Scarborough’s comments below:

“All I can say is that I want President Trump to be successful,” Graham told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday when asked about the MSNBC host’s remark. “[…] I push back when I think he’s wrong. I like him.”

Graham noted that, as a senator, he’s working for the people of South Carolina and that they “want me to help this president.” He added that he and the president have disagreements, but “when we do, I try to work through them.”

“Cable chatter is just cable chatter,” the senator continued while pushing back, as he said his relationship with late Sen. John McCain will never change.

“He was a big influence on my life, taught me a lot about foreign policy,” Graham said. “I think President Trump is doing a very, very good job, and I’m certain he’s going to get re-elected. I really believe that.”

Kilmeade pointed out that Graham is doing “play-by-play” when it comes to working with the president and is “being totally consistent with who you are.”

In the end, Graham said he’s “not going to worry about is pleasing Joe Scarborough, that’s not on my list.”

My thoughts exactly @screwtape, Joe sold his soul to the radical left. He doesn’t deserve to be heard

Joe is guessing that Graham sold his soul, when WE already know Joe himself already sold his soul, and integrity, to the Left.

We also know that Mika has Joe’s testicles in a jar, but he gave those willingly.

This is what a typical atheist would say. When they have no soul themselves.
