Donald Trump took to Twitter again recently to attack Senator Lindsey Graham’s endorsement of Jeb Bush for the Republican presidential nomination.
Here’s what Trump had to say:
“Senator Lindsey Graham embarrassed himself with his failed run for President and now further embarrasses himself with endorsement of Bush.”
“Jeb Bush, who did poorly last night in the debate and whose chances of winning are zero, just got Graham endorsement. Graham quit at O.”
Graham, the South Carolina senator who left the presidential race last month, endorsed Bush, saying that the former Florida governor’s answers during the sixth debate last night in his state “demonstrated somebody in my view who is ready on day one to be commander-in-chief.”
Given the anti-incumbent, anti-establishment mood of most conservative and Republican voters – and the single-digit polling numbers of George W’s younger brother – the voters don’t agree with Senator Graham that political experience is necessary in 2016.
In most election years, getting an endorsement from a candidate who’s recently dropped out of the primary race is a good thing. But in this election cycle, it doesn’t appear to be the case – and Trump seems to be right that Graham may have embarrassed himself by backing Jeb Bush.
However, most Republicans in Congress are so out-of-touch with what their constituents think that they probably don’t care what their perception is – unless it costs them campaign contributions or votes.
Do you agree with Trump that Lindsey Graham embarrassed himself by endorsing Jeb Bush?
