Graham: I Won’t Be ‘Constant Critic’ Of Trump Because I Want Tax Cuts

They all know that Trump is incompetent and unfit for the job but will keep turning a blind eye so that they can try to force their agenda.

While Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) once described President Donald Trump as a “jackass” and an “idiot,” the South Carolina senior senator has recently become rather chummy with Trump, bonding over their shared efforts to repeal Obamacare with the Graham-Cassidy bill. The pair even played golf together twice in the same week.

The newly forged friendship may have something to do with Graham’s lukewarm reaction to Sens. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Bob Corker’s (R-TN) highly critical and public condemnation of Trump, his behavior and his policies in recent days.

Saying he likes Flake “a lot” and his impending retirement will be a “loss to the Senate,” Graham admitted he does share Flake’s “concerns about what the President said, about the way he behaves,” according to Vanity Fair’s Hive.

“The election is over. I’m focused on results, and that’s why I’m here. I’d rather not be a constant critic. I’ll stand up when I need to, but I’m trying to get taxes cut,” he said.

Poll: Majority of Dems has favorable view of George W. Bush

This really isn’t too shocking for a variety of reasons. People have short memories and he hasn’t been in power for almost a decade. It’s easier to like someone when they aren’t actively involved in ruining the country. Couple that with the new guy being a dumpster fire and suddenly Bush doesn’t look so bad. My personal opinion is that Bush was a horrible president but not a terrible human being. The new guy is not just a horrible president, but he’s also just a horrible person.

A slim majority of Democrats in the United States holds a favorable view of former President George W. Bush, according to a new poll.

Fifty-one percent of Democrats in the Economist-YouGov survey say they have a somewhat or very favorable view of the 43rd president, while 42 percent hold a somewhat or very unfavorable view of Bush.

The results come just under one week after Bush delivered a blistering rebuke of President Trump’s policies. While Bush did not mention Trump by name during the speech, he criticized foreign polices that do not combat security threats head-on and domestic policies that rebuff immigrants.
