Lindsey Graham has been a fierce defender of Trump and the truth and he is not going to let the media get away with the absolute hypocrisy they and the left are showing over the border situation.
Basically, the media’s view is that if Obama did it it was a good thing and necessary, yet if Trump does it he is a monster who must be removed from office. Speaking to Sean Hannity, Lindsey reminded everyone about a few skeletons hanging around in Obama’s closet and destroyed the left for their blatant double standard.
“How long does it take you to figure this out? When it comes to Obama, when he uses tear gas, he is protecting the country.
“The narrative is that Trump is a cruel, heartless bastard, only works if he uses tear gas on kids, and it undercuts the argument that if the Obama Administration used tear gas to protect our border from being overrun,” Graham began.
“The question for the country is what do you say to the people that shot the canisters?” He asked.
“I stand behind the men and women on the border standing between us and people who want to cross illegally. When you are slamming the tear gas, you are slamming the people we put on the border to protect us. That’s what disgusts me the most.”
“I have been a lawyer in the military most of my adult life. You use the least amount of force possible to protect you and secure the mission.”
“The mission is to protect the border from being overrun. Tear gas keeps the people apart. You don’t get in a fight. That’s a good thing,” the Senator continued.
“The bottom line is Donald Trump was right to call the caravan out weeks ago. He is right to make sure it never crosses the border. People throughout the world are watching the president.”
“If he blinks here, his credibility on securing the border is dead. He is not going to blink. To my Democratic friends, how do you expect the public to work with us to fix a broken immigration system if you support one wave after another?” he added.
From The San Diego Tribune:
As a group of about 100 people trying to illegally cross the border Sunday near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at U.S. Border Patrol agents, who responded by using pepper spray and other means to force the crowd back into Mexico, federal officials said.
The incident has raised concerns among advocates on both sides of the immigration debate, as well as Border Patrol representatives.
