Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took to far-Right Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News last night to praise President Donald Trump’s first Oval Office address, in which Trump attempted to make his case for shutting down the government over the demand of $5.7 billion of wall to erect at the southern border.
Trump read cherrypicked facts from a teleprompter while sitting still, so naturally Senator Graham said it was the most presidential the man has ever looked.
“This is the most presidential I have seen President Trump. It was compelling and everything he said was true.”
People were flummoxed that the Senator—formerly a vocal critic of the President—was so eager to heap praises upon him.
Some believe that the praises are tactical rather than heartfelt.
Oh man, Trump and the Russians really have the goods on Graham. Wonder what it could be? Would be interested in best guesses

@GrahamBlog is dead to me then. Its clearly a concoction. With MCcain sadly passed, it appears Graham things this is his last ticket to the limelight. He's both an extremist and a fool in practice.

@LindseyGrahamSC sold his soul and history will not be kind to him.

Even more found the idea that commending Trump for being presidential was laughable.
A Ken doll would have been more presidential.

Let’s just say for the sake of argument that he was presidential(which he wasn’t). If, after 2 years into his term, that’s where the bar is, how good he is at pretending to be president, that says a lot.

Lindsey, how low have you set the bar? Trump read out loud from a teleprompter. That's all he did. Oh yeah, he did sniffle quite a bit. Which one of those two accomplishments made him seem Presidential??

And as for everything he said being true?
