Former Florida Rep. David Jolly appeared on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Saturday where he called out his former Republican colleagues, Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham, for getting played by Donald Trump this entire time.
Jolly was discussing Trump’s decision to sell out America’s Kurdish allies in Syria.
“For all that Lindsey Graham thinks of his own skill in influencing the president of the United States, this is the one issue that punches Lindsey in the gut. This should say to Lindsey Graham, ‘Donald Trump doesn’t care about you, Lindsey Graham.’”
“He doesn’t listen to him,” agreed anchor Joy Reid.
“Because — and we were talking during the break and I’d share with our viewers — this is almost a singular passion of Lindsey Graham, this issue in Syria, the issue with the Kurds,” said Jolly. “Lindsey and I have been into the refugee camps on the Syrian border. I have seen Lindsey promise the Kurds that he will fight for them. This is a moment where Lindsey Graham sold his soul to the president, the president turned around and punched him in the gut.”
“And very importantly, when we look at this moment, we cannot look at this moment without saying, you caused this, Lindsey Graham, you caused this, Mitch McConnell. Three years of enabling the president. How foolish, how stupid were you to think you would not get to a moment where Donald Trump would do something with such depravity.”
