Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has befuddled Americans everywhere over the past few years with his flip-flopping and apparent abandonment of what appeared to be firmly-held principles.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Graham called President Donald Trump a "complete idiot" and said if Republican's nominated him, they'd be destroyed and they'd deserve it.

Since Trump's inauguration, however, Graham has been a near-unwavering ally to the President, defending some of Trump's most indefensible actions. This is despite Trump constantly insulting the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) even after his death. McCain was one of Graham's lifelong friends.

President Donald Trump's eldest son, Don Jr., appeared with girlfriend and political analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle on The View to promote his new book, Triggered, but a number of tense moments during the show upstaged it.

Though the prince of trolling did his best to turn the entire panel into a YouTube comments section, cohost Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), confronted Junior about his attacks on the Khans, a Muslim Gold Star family whose speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 sparked attacks from the Trump family.

In 2015, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-NC) was clear on how he felt about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"He's a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot," Graham said. "He doesn't represent my party. He doesn't represents the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for."

President Donald Trump's ire for the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has been well-documented. On the campaign trail, Trump questioned why the former prisoner of war was described as a war hero and McCain railed against Trump for siding with Russian president Vladimir Putin at a press conference in Helsinki.

Trump's bitterness against McCain reached new debts, however, when McCain famously voted no on Trump's overhaul of the Affordable Care Act. The legislation failed, humiliating Trump.

Since before the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain, singlehandedly foiled President Donald Trump's efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement, Trump has held a grudge.

As recently as two weeks ago, evidence surfaced that the White House made a concentrated effort to keep the USS John McCain out of Trump's sight during his visit to Japan.

President Donald Trump proclaimed Tuesday as National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day and his announcement is earning fierce ridicule because of his treatment of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ).

"We honor the Americans captured and imprisoned by foreign powers while carrying out their duties to defend this great Nation," Trump wrote in a statement. "As a Nation, we must never forget or take for granted the traumatic ordeals of our former POWs.  With honor and valor, they served to keep our country safe, and they stayed the course — despite conditions that were often harsh and agonizing."
