WASHINGTON — Big League Politics can exclusively report what Republican senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham said to each other immediately after learning that Donald Trump won the presidential election back in November.
The neoconservative senators were watching the results come in together, according to a knowledgeable source. When it became clear that Trump was the winner over Hillary Clinton, the disappointed senators exchanged the following dialogue:
GRAHAM: “Well, now we’re going to have to deal with this guy for four years.”
MCCAIN: “No. He’s going to have to deal with us.”
Both establishment Republicans were clearly rooting for Clinton to beat Trump on election night. While Graham appeared somewhat willing to compromise with the new president-elect, McCain’s response made it clear that he had no intention of helping the Trump presidency succeed.
Both neocons have stayed true to their obstructionist designs. Graham and McCain fought Trump tooth and nail on the unsubstantiated theory that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russians during the election cycle. That conspiracy theory has served as the basis of absurd Senate committee hearings and now an investigation — led by establishment Republicans — in the House Intelligence Committee.
Fellow neoconservative establishment Republican Marco Rubio has also gone along for the ride on Russia.
McCain and Graham appear happier now that they’ve dragged the Trump administration into military conflict with Syria, an ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Trump’s bombing of Syrian government targets — and his potential ground invasion to remove Syrian president Bashar al Assad — stand to further de-stabilize that wartorn country and further embolden Islamist rebel groups including ISIS.
Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
She succeeds Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court on Monday, solidifying a conservative majority on the nation’s highest court.
Barrett succeeds progressive Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a progressive who had served on the Supreme Court since 1993.
Watch the Senate confirmation proceedings here.
After a lengthy obstructionist attempt to delay the confirmation, Democrats proved unable to stop a floor vote on Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night. Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attempted a last minute filibuster in a race against time- claiming the eventual confirmation of Barrett represented “one of the darkest days in the history of the Senate,” but Mitch McConnell ultimately arranged a vote.

Josh Hawley had earlier hailed the confirmation of a justice with a strong pro-life track record.

The vote to confirm Barrett as a SCOTUS Justice passed by a count of 52-48, with Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski voting in favor of Barrett’s confirmation. Maine’s Susan Collins was the only Republican senator to vote against Barrett’s confirmation, refusing to budge on her stance that the next President should appoint Ginsburg’s replacement.
Judge Barrett is expected to be sworn in as an Associate Justice by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House on Monday night.
