Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), once a fierce opponent to Donald Trump’s candidacy for president, has evolved into one of the Trump’s most loyal peons.
“You know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell,” Graham said of candidate Trump in 2015.
Graham was no fan of Trump before the election.
If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.

But on Friday, Graham encouraged Trump to declare a national emergency in order to construct a wall along the southern border – an “emergency” that does not really exist.
Declare a national emergency NOW.
Build a wall NOW.

Chris Evans, aka Captain America, has seen enough.
On Saturday, the chiseled actor tore into Graham on Twitter, likening Trump’s buddy to Waylon Smithers, the closeted gay assistant to the villainous Mr. Burns from The Simpsons.
On the show, Smithers’ perpetual loyalty to Burns, which Evans compared to a suckerfish, is topped only by Smithers’ deep, aching love for the 104-year-old billionaire.
“Hey Smithers, remember when you said this: ‘You know how you make America great again, tell Donald Trump to go to hell.’ What do they have on you?” Evans wrote. “I can’t tell if this shameful 180 is born of fear or thirst. Either way, we will always remember you as nothing more than remora.”

I’ve always called Lindsey “Butters”, but you’re right, “Smithers” is so much more fitting. pic.twitter.com/P4xfOF3MvH

Meanwhile, others are lashing out at Graham for pushing Trump toward dictatorship.
