Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) lashed out at Donald Trump on Tuesday after the former president decided to host a Holocaust denier and a prominent white supremacist to a dinner.
Speaking to Raw Story on Tuesday, Graham said he couldn’t understand why Trump would take a meeting with Kanye West to begin with.
“I just think any time we’re talking about that is a bad day for him,” said Graham. “I don’t know why you’d want to give oxygen to Kanye West. And I don’t doubt that Trump didn’t know the other guy.”
The “other guy” that Graham is referring to is radical right-wing extremist Nick Fuentes, who supports a range of policies like mandating American women be denied the right to vote, demanding they wear veils in church and requiring that they marry early as teens and serve as a baby-making factory. In one show he lamented the “good old days” when men could punch women and burn them alive. At the same time, he has denied that the Holocaust happened, while also mocking those who died in it as “burnt cookies.”
