Graham doesnt give a shit about Trump. All he cares about is not being primaried next year. He must have strong polling data that shows SC will turn on him if he goes against Trump.

This is a big factor. His whole rhetorical style is more Trumpian, and he realizes his road to success is to become a sentient version of a fox news opinion dump.

Bingo... that worthless bastard has no spine. I hope he loses so he can take his seat down at the limber dick club at the local coffee shop.

And utter silence from Graham as Trump goes on Twitter to trash his great friend, a man who was almost like a father to him in the Senate, on the anniversary of his release from the Hanoi Hilton. All to maintain political power.

Reek refuses to call out Trump for his non stop attacks on his ol buddy John McCain

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/03/18/lindsey-grahams-remarkably-tepid-defense-john-mccain-after-trumps-attacks/

 

- Graham never mentions Trump or makes clear what he’s responding to.

- He doesn’t address Trump’s attacks on McCain’s vote or really do anything to defend McCain’s congressional record. In fact, Graham says only that McCain’s time as a senator was “consequential,” which is basically what Trump is saying — in a negative way. Other than that, he instead praises McCain in general terms for having “served” and for “his service.” The tweets are almost completely lacking in actual, substantial praise.

- He doesn’t respond directly to Trump’s false claims. Graham says nothing about Trump having effectively accused his friend of conspiring with Democrats and trying to stop his election.He also says nothing about Trump sharing former U.S. solicitor general Kenneth Starr’s allegation that McCain’s conduct with regard to the Steele dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.”

It would be one thing to stand up for McCain’s actual conduct or even to rebut specific allegations without mentioning Trump, but Graham does none of that here. It’s about as vanilla a defense as you could imagine. It’s the kind of thing you would expect from basically any senator who is forced into commenting on Trump’s controversies.
