Lindsey Graham Just Said That The Dem Congresswomen Deserved The Racist Attacks Because They Don't Support Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) decided to defend Donald Trump’s racist attacks against the group of Democratic Congresswomen again on Wednesday and claimed that the remarks were “more narcissism than anything else.”

“I really do believe that if you’re a Somali refugee who likes Trump, he’s not going to say ‘go back to Somalia,'” Graham said, apparently referencing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), according to NBC News.

“A racist says go back to Somalia because you’re a Somalian or you’re a Muslim or whatever, that’s just the way he is. More narcissism than anything else.”

Graham was asked about his remarks and claimed that he was “making a joke,” adding that he didn’t “like the idea” of telling anyone to “go back” to the place they’re from.

“I think you can make the case that he’s a narcissist more than you can make he’s a racist,” the South Carolina Republican said. “I mean, I don’t like the idea of telling somebody who’s an American citizen to go home, this is their home.”

“When you accuse the guy of running concentration camps you probably aren’t going to get a high-minded response,” Graham continued, referring to some Democrats’ comparison of migrant detention centers to concentration camps. “My point is I really do believe if you support him it’s different than if you don’t. It’s not about being from Somalia, it’s about whether you support him or not”
