Lindsey Graham apologizes to Muslims, says Barack Obama is ‘my president’

grahamstey1Lindsey Graham, the Republican Senator from South Carolina, illustrated why he remains under one percent in the polls during Tuesday night’s undercard debate.

In addition to apologizing to what he called America’s “Muslim friends,” he called Barack Obama “my president” and went on a rant against the so-called “birthers” who think Obama was born in Kenya.

“To those people that believe Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya I’ve lost ya a long time ago,” he said. “There’s a dislike for President Obama in my party that’s unhealthy. There was a dislike for President Bush in the Democratic Party that was unhealthy.”

Politico added:

Is America headed for a recession?

Graham said that Obama is “my president” and that the two talked Tuesday about how they could work together to help the new prime minister of Iraq.

“I think he has screwed this up 10 ways to Sunday, but Bush made his fair share of mistakes too,” Graham said.

“George W. Bush made mistakes, but he did adjust. I blame Obama for ISIL, not Bush. I’m tired of beating on Bush,” he said in an effort to be everything to everyone. “I miss George W. Bush. I wish you were President right now. We wouldn’t be in this mess.”

Despite being at or below one percent in most polls, Graham said the other “undercard” candidates should drop out.

“I think I should be on the main stage,” he said. “I don’t think I’m an undercard candidate.”

Here’s video of his apology:

It seems “delusional” is now synonymous with “Lindsey Graham.”
