Numerous Republican lawmakers who railed against then-candidate Donald Trump became his most loyal subjects after he ascended to the Presidency in an upset victory.
Few, however, have taken a more radical ideological shift than Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who said during the campaign that Donald Trump would corrupt the soul of the United States.

And he's the nicest person I think I've ever met in politics. He is as good a man as God ever created."
The 2016 video was shared by the recently created Twitter parody account "Lindsey Graham's conscience."
Those who watched it had ample feelings regarding Graham's conscience.
