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…

Hillary Returns to Whine About ‘Sexist Trash’ After Trump Posts Tweet of Stuttering Pelosi [WATCH]

It just never ends…

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continues to struggle speaking in front of crowds, despite decades in the public arena. President Trump re-tweeted a clip of her stuttering profusely while talking to reporters. Then, Hillary Clinton decided to join the party. The problem, as usual, is that she was wildly offbase. From Daily Wire: Speaking to the crowd at a Harris County Democratic Party in Houston, Texas, Clinton lashed out at the president for sharing what she called a “doctored” video of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) having difficulty speaking and slurring words during public appearances. Clinton called the video “sexist trash.” Here’s Trump’s tweet: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131728912835383300?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131728912835383300&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Funhinged-hillary-clinton-goes-nuts-after-trump-posts-video-of-pelosi-stuttering%2F Here’s Clinton’s tweet: My take on Trump and his cronies spreading that doctored video of Nancy Pelosi: It’s sexist trash. It’s also a sign that Trump is running scared. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1132309330697609222?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132309330697609222&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Funhinged-hillary-clinton-goes-nuts-after-trump-posts-video-of-pelosi-stuttering%2F Why else would anybody ask Hillary Clinton, of all people, to give advice to 2020 Democrat presidential candidates on how to defeat Donald Trump? Where’s the logic? TOO FUNNY!

If it’s not one scandal for the twice-failed presidential candidate, it’s another. If it’s not email-related, it’s Benghazi. If it’s not Whitewater, it’s praising the prime minister of New Zealand for banning semi-automatic weapons. It just never ends.

AOC Tries to Use Meteorological Event to Push Climate Change, Gets Harshly Rebuked by Expert

You live by social media sword, you die by the social media sword.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most avid social media users in Congress, but that distinction has backfired far more often than it hasn’t for her. AOC, as she has advertised herself, is undoubtedly one of the millennial-ist members of Congress to ever saunter about the Capitol.  Her constant social media PR and far-left ideologies appeal to a wide swath of the American youth, giving the political newbie a gravitational pull that her fellow democrats have not yet experienced. But this also means that every tidbit of AOC’s life will be subject to criticism, since every tidbit of her life is being broadcast. Her latest social media stunt saw the New York House Rep panicking over a tornado warning in Washington DC and attempting to draw a parallel to global warming. Meteorologists were quick to rebuke her. Here is the frantic video: https://youtu.be/zBG-BmMdP70 The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.” “Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.” Then came the clincher. “The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram. That theory was quickly shot down, however. Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in…
