A Republican Senator is facing fierce backlash from Democrats over comments that he made at The Atlantic Festival.
“This is what happens when you go through a trailer park with a $100 bill,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) regarding Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
@LindseyGrahamSC is a disgusting excuse for a human being. He’s also a bully, a hypocrite, a liar AND most likely a criminal (guilty of accepting over $800K in illegal foreign campaign donations). John McCain — a true patriot and a real gentleman — must be spinning in his grave,” said former Obama official Jon Cooper in response to Graham’s comments.

But what the outraged leftists either do not know or are intentionally ignoring is that fact that Graham was quoting Democrat operative James Carville, who wrote those exact words on a now-defunct website that he set up to smear Paula Jones, a woman who accused President William J. Clinton of rape in 1999.
@LindseyGrahamSC claims he “didn’t like” @realDonaldTrump mocking #ChristineBlasleyFord but, “It could be worse, you could kill someone’s cat or puncture their tires to get them to shut up.” WHAT??!!?! South Carolina, your senator is a jackass,” said far leftist Bishop Talbert Swan.

Swan apparently does not know that killing cats and slashing tires were part of the intimidation tactics used against Clinton’s alleged victims in order to keep them quiet.
Graham got himself a two-for-one deal. He exposed the ignorance of the left and their double-standards when it comes to the treatment of female accusers, all in one fell swoop.
He also told the audience to “Boo yourself,” when they expressed their outrage.
Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC: "I don't like what the president said last night. I'm the first person to say, 'I want to hear from Dr. Ford.' I thought she was handled respectfully. I thought Kavanaugh was treated like crap."
