Sen. Lindsey Graham: ‘I don’t know what America first means’ — Video

Lindsey GrahamWhile appearing on Sunday’s edition of CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., seemed confused by President Donald Trump’s call for “America first” policies, telling CBS he doesn’t know what that means.

“To the president, if America first is a throwback to the 20s and 30s isolationism when it was first used as a phrase, the world would deteriorate even quicker, if it is a new way of Ronald Reagan’s peace through strength I would like to work with him,” he said.  “I don’t know what America first means.”

Here’s video of his interview:

Graham, seen by many as John McCain’s trusty lapdog/sidekick, has to know what Trump meant when he referred to it during his inauguration.

“From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first,” Trump said.

“Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs,” Trump added.

If Graham is so stupid he doesn’t understand this simple statement, then he has no business in the Senate — or in any other elected office.

No wonder he lost in the GOP primary…
