The South Carolina senator is “the worst of the lot,” The Intercept’s Mehdi Hasan explains in a new video.
The Intercept’s Mehdi Hasan nails the hypocrisy of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in a new video that calls the GOP lawmaker “the most shameless man in American politics.”
Hasan notes in the clip released Friday that Graham has a “lot of competition” when it comes “to shameless, hypocritical, dishonest politicians” — from President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas.)
“But it’s Lindsey Graham, who in my view, is the worst of the lot,” he continued, noting how Graham actually “put a lot of effort into cultivating an image of a reasonable, sober, sensible, moderate Republican” before morphing into a staunch defender of the president.
“But today, there’s no position he won’t abandon, no U-turn he won’t perform, no lie he won’t tell,” Hasan added.
