“If Trump wins your days are numbered, pal!”
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Senator and former presidential hopeful who never really had a chance, went on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” to talk about his Ted Cruz endorsement. Yes, Graham, who at one point boasted that you could murder Ted Cruz and get away with it (it’s in the video), is endorsing the Canadian-born Texas Senator because it’s an easier, bitter pill to swallow than if Donald Trump wins.
The whole interview is well worth your time, but the most jarring/eye-opening portion of the interview was Graham warning Noah, an immigrant from South Africa, in that joking-but-no-seriously manner that if Trump wins, he should pack his bags. For all intents and purposes, Graham’s warning should apply to the more than 41.3 million immigrants in this country (11.5 million of which are undocumented).
That Graham would say this on national television is quite sobering and, in some weird way, kind of funny because the South Carolina Senator is talking with the candidness of a person who’s drunk and went to the ATM and saw that he had a balance of zero f*cks.
So there you have it, folks. When a Republican from South Carolina says that you should be scared of someone from his own party, you should take that advice at face value.
