It was clearly a mistake to ever take Lindsey Graham seriously for any reason.
Senator Graham reportedly told a group of conservative donors that they must unite behind Donald Trump to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. For reasons.
Graham urged GOP donors at a private fundraiser Saturday in Florida to unite behind Trump's campaign and stressed the importance of keeping likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from the White House. The fundraiser was hosted by former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal Al Hoffman, a former Republican National Committee finance chairman who also co-chaired Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential bid.
"He did say that we need to get behind him," Teresa Dailey, a prominent Florida Republican fundraiser who attended the private event, told CNN on Sunday.
Graham may have been the most outspoken critic of Trump in the Republican party, but it's now abundantly clear that Graham doesn't actually stand for anything.
Trump's foreign policy positions alone -- from his cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, to saying NATO should be dismantled, to saying he would meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un -- would be labeled a great heresy by noted warhawk Lindsey Graham and most other Republicans if they were spoken by a Democrat.
Every alleged weakness Republicans have projected onto Democrats, such as repeated accusations of being too soft on Russia, are exemplified by Donald Trump.
This should be a big problem for them but it isn't because Republicans aren't actually capable of possessing or displaying integrity.
It isn't even clear why they believe they need to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. If their past positions and the positions of the GOP as we've known it are taken at face value, Donald Trump is clearly the bigger threat to their way of life.
With such vast distances between Trump and establishment Republicans on policy, all you're left with is Making America White Again.
