READ: Senator Lindsey Graham Tweets Donald Trump ‘Is Right to Push Back in Order to Deter Future Waves of Illegal Immigration’

Whut?

WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 27: U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) speaks at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

President Donald Trump shocked the nation on Sunday when the armed forces he stationed at the border to meet the migrant caravan traveling to the border deployed tear gas on the asylum seekers, many of whom included women and toddlers.

Tear gas assaults the mucous membranes to irritate skin and cause difficulty breathing, and creates a heat behind the eyes inducing them to water excessively.

Despite the gas being deployed against toddlers, some are still choosing to stick up for the President’s policy. Among them is Trump critic-turned-ally Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Graham defended the President in a series of tweets.

It is not illegal for people to enter the United States seeking asylum, but that hasn’t stopped many members of the GOP from painting the caravan as a group of violent criminals seeking to invade the country.

Fortunately, Twitter users stepped up to the plate to correct Graham — and they didn’t mince words.

Others called out Graham’s reversal in his opinion of the President, whom he once called a “race-baiting, xenophobic bigot.”

Many are speculating the reasons for Graham’s constant defenses of Trump — even when these defenses pit him against public opinion.
