READ: Senator Lindsey Graham Says Nancy Pelosi Disinviting Donald Trump From Giving His State of the Union ‘Sets a New Low for American Politics’

Seriously?

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) attempted to shame Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for postponing President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address until after the shutdown.

He went after the Speaker in a series of tweets, most notably, claiming that:

Speaker Pelosi’s decision not to invite President to deliver the State of the Union address sets a new low for American politics.

The devout Trump ally didn’t mention, of course, that States of the Union were primarily given in writing for much of our history, nor that Pelosi has invited Trump to make the address after the longest government shutdown in American history is finally over.

But Senator Graham referring to Pelosi rescinding Trump’s invite as the “a new low for American politics” is patently absurd, and freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) soon called Graham out.

There have been numerous new lows in American politics from missteps to outright atrocities since 2017, as Ocasio-Cortez pointed out. Graham implies that they’re dwarfed by the “new low” of postponing the State of the Union.

Many took Ocasio-Cortez’s side.

That was just the beginning of the ire toward Graham.
