Lindsey tries to outstupid ‘Trumpo’

Graham on TV

I’ve mentioned this before — the “Trumpo” flag I saw at a flea market at the beach a couple of years back. You know, Donald “Bonespur” Trump depicted as Rambo.

Probably one of the funniest — certainly stupidest — things I saw during the Trump years. And as we all know, there was a lot of competition.

Speaking of competition, though, Lindsey Graham has made a brave effort to conjure an image every bit as dumb and ludicrous:

Here, for instance, is Senator Lindsey Graham speaking, this past Sunday, on Fox News: “I own an AR-15. If there’s a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can’t protect my neighborhood, my house will be the last one that the gang will come to, because I can defend myself.”

Here’s the video, if that quote’s not enough for you.

The picture Lindsey is trying to put in your head is pretty similar to the Trump flag.

But as stupid as that is, it doesn’t quite work, does it? The picture in my head is somewhere between this picture from St. Louis, and Elmer Fudd, on the hunt for that cwazy wabbit.

I can’t decide which part of that McCloskey guy made him more menacing — the bare feet, or the pink shirt. He was really ready to do battle, wasn’t he?

    Come on, y’all, this one’s kinda fun!

    Dang it, I posted three times today, and I’m not gonna post any more until I get some comments on this one.

    In other words, I have yet to get a harrumph outta you…

    The key word in Lindsey’s sorry rant was “gang” – clearly dog whistling the black menace. But really, if armageddon comes, guess who’s most likely to pillage his place – yeah, the very people he is attempting to appeal to. It’s all just gross.

    He is gross. I am so tired of him. Don’t understand why someone [not crazy or immaterial] doesn’t run as a Republican against him.

    ” If there’s a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can’t protect my neighborhood, ”

    When has that occurred? South Carolina has experienced some nasty weather related issues in the past 5-7 years, and experienced riots in downtown Columbia this past year. I don’t recall instances were police departments weren’t able to protect the kinds of homes where Lindsey would live.

    As I have said before, I have my fair share of weapons. I’ve never needed or wanted an AR-15. (Lindsey will be just fine as a sitting US Senator).
