Ex-GOP Strategist Slams Lindsey Graham Over His Devotion To Trump: ‘Says A Lot About His Character’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest defenders in the Senate, has been hit with harsh criticism for abandoning his own friend, the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), in order to tend to Trump.

This week, Rolling Stone writer Mark Binelli interviewed former McCain strategist and Never Trump conservative Steve Schmidt about Graham’s devotion to Trump.

“We see more examples of this in film and literature, but there are instances of principled men and women laying down their careers in service of what is right. Clearly, that person will never be Lindsey Graham,” said Schmidt. “With regard to the cruelty and abuse that was directed at John McCain by Trump, I think Lindsey’s flaccidity in defending him says a lot about his character. Nobody wants to be in a bar fight when they go out on Friday night. But when someone walks up and punches your best friend in the face, you’ve got to do something. Lindsey has demonstrated he’s the guy who runs out the door.”
