Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg referred to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham Tuesday as one of the “women of the Senate.”
The 84-year-old Supreme Court justice delivered remarks at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania on Monday as she accepted the Prize for Civility in Public Life, honoring her and late Justice Antonin Scalia.
“Let’s hope members of Congress, the members Allegheny College has already honored – Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. John McCain – the women of the Senate, Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham – let’s hope that they and others of goodwill will lead in restoring harmonious work ways,” Ginsburg said during her acceptance speech.
Graham has been continuously mocked for his effeminate mannerisms. Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart gained a lot of traction during the presidential campaign for his Graham impression, which recalled Blanche DuBois of Tennessee Williams’ play A Streetcar Named Desire.
Graham and his fellow neoconservative senators John McCain and Marco Rubio have been the biggest Trump critics in the Senate so far, blasting the president for his campaign’s supposed — but completely unproved — coordination with the Russians during the election cycle.
A Washington insider told Breitbart News that Graham remarked to McCain on Election Night, “Now we’re going to have to deal with this guy for four years.” To which McCain responded, “No, he’s going to have to deal with us.”
Trump’s clashes with Graham on the campaign trail are the stuff of legend, including his stunt encouraging supporters to call Graham’s personal cell phone number. Graham earned boos at Trump rallies on the campaign trail, including a major rally in Greenville ahead of the South Carolina primary, where Trump won a resounding victory.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
