Lindsey Graham Has Slightly Paranoid Concern About the Gift Putin Gave Trump

Published

on

Lindsey Graham is probably just looking out for the nation’s best interest.

Or maybe he’s been watching a few too many James Bond movies.

On Twitter Monday, Graham expressed concern that a symbolic gift Putin presented to Trump at their highly-anticipated Helsinki meeting be scrutinized and “never allowed in the White House.”

The gift was an official soccer ball from the World Cup, which just wrapped up in Russia, who hosted this year.

Putin joked to Trump upon presenting him with the ball that “the ball is in your court,” a relatively lighthearted gesture considering their meeting have occurred on the heels of fresh DOJ indictments of Russian nationals for alledged campaign meddling as well as Trump’s comments to NATO nations last week that they were overly reliant on Russia for energy and the US for protection from Russia.

Graham, as he often does, joined slightly hysterical Democrats who expect Trump to whine to Putin about the ongoing drama of alleged Russian campaign meddling, which is really just a very thinly veiled way of telling Trump if he doesn’t wag his finger at Putin enough, it’s practically an admission that he’s Putin’s personal puppet in the US, which is pretty absurd considering the way Trump’s attitudes towards the Kremlin during his presidency thus far.

In a series of tweets lamenting that Trump failed to”hold Putin accountable” for campaign meddling during their meetings (what was he expecting, Trump would start WW3 from the podium?), Graham dropped his security tip:

I’m pretty sure the Secret Service most likely has a protocol for such things, Lindsey, but it’s certainly worth mentioning, I suppose!

One thing can be said about Trump: right or wrong, he definitely doesn’t like to do whatever the Democrats and the mainstream media want him to do, and when it comes to diplomacy, right or wrong, he always goes against the grain.

But if his record so far is any indication, when he met with Putin, he knew what he was doing.

And clearly he wasn’t worried about bugged soccer balls…

New Report Says Biden Allies Considering Scaling Back Public Speaking; Reason Why Is Hilarious

Too funny! Can’t Take Uncle Joe anywhere!

Published

When you take a good look at the Democratic Party’s talent pool for the upcoming 2020 presidential election, it becomes clear pretty quickly they are scraping the bottom of the barrel. Former Vice President Joe Biden is currently the party frontrunner and given the massive number of gaffes he’s already had on the campaign trail, it’s pretty obvious he’s a really bad choice. The man is simply clueless. And don’t think this has gone unnoticed by his own people. It hasn’t. In fact, his closest allies are thinking of limiting his public speaking engagements to avoid any more verbal slip-ups. via The Daily Wire: “Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days,” reports The Hill. “The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.” Indeed, Biden has practically been making a gaffe a week at this stage in the game. Last week alone, the former vice president committed two gaffes in just under 24 hours when he told a crowd of supporters he values “truth over facts” and then later told the Asian and Latino Coalition PAC “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” “We should challenge these students, we should challenge students in these schools and have advance placement programs in these schools,” Biden told the Asian and Latino Coalition PAC, in comments reported by Fox News. “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” Boy, that last one is a real doozy, isn’t…

Israel Finally Grants Rashida Tlaib’s Request To Visit The Country. Her Response Speaks Volumes

This woman is unbearable.

Published

Just hours after Israel finally granted Rep. Rashida Tlaib her request to come and visit family she has in the country, she turns around and declines the offer. Why? Well, the answer should be pretty darn obvious. The whole thing was nothing more than a political ploy to buy her some favor with the left and further paint Israel and Jews to be the bad guys, a game she’s playing with her buddies in “The Squad” from the very beginning of her time in office. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “My sity wanted to pick figs [with] me. I broke down reading this [and] worry every single day after I won for my family’s safety,” Tlaib said in a series of tweets. “My cousin was texting me which photo of [Omar] & I they should put on a welcoming poster when I heard the news. I couldn’t tell her.” “When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions,” she continued. “I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me [and] use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive [and] racist policies.” The Israeli government initially blocked Tlaib from visiting the country citing her vocal support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish the Jewish State by politically and economically starving the country. The Anti-Defamation League considers BDS to be the most “prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence,” and given Tlaib’s vocal support of this effort, it’s not a surprise the people of Israel would be hesitant to let her come into the country. In 2017, Israeli Knesset passed an anti-BDS law that blocks those who are foreign activists from entering the nation. With…
