Shut the hell up, Lindsey, would you?
How much you want to bet he calls himself a Good Christian?
I hope someone on Putin’s staff can take a break from thinking up assholic war crimes and spill the beans on Graham.
So now the heart attack Putin has from natural causes will be an act of war to whoever ends up in charge of the button.
Thanks Linds, great job as usual.
Republicans were saying the same about Trudeau two weeks ago.
OK, confession time: I said the same thing about Donald Trump.
I’m not proud of it, but here we are.
He’s not wrong in terms of it being an option for ending this invasion. But I’d sooner trust the details of how it might happen and who might make it happen to a 12 year old boy with an over-active imagination than to Huckleberry the Hypocrite. After years of enabling Putin’s biggest asset in America he has no standing to discuss this matter.
Lindsey, you just aren’t funny anymore. Go buy a house next to Trump and retire.
Well that seems counterproductive.
Lindsey Graham: “Russian citizens should risk their lives to assassinate Putin.”
Also Lindsey Graham: “I won’t vote to convict Trump for orchestrating an attack on our capital.”
mah twittah was hacked, probably bah them dang russkies
I freely admit hoping for that What Lindsey Said Out Loud.
The most subtle version: State media begins playing a loop of somber music, followed by reports of a tragic accident.
But, yeah, no frigging way a Senator should say that out loud.
Very much the personification of counterproductive statements. Politicians should never be asking for the assassination of people they don’t like. As much as Putin is human garbage don’t just be saying irresponsible shit like that
Exactly, if Putin dies in office (of natural causes or otherwise) at least half the planet is going to assume it was a CIA hit. Hard to imagine how this jackass thought his comment was helpful.
Yeah, it’s a stupid thing for a public figure to say and will be weaponized to cast doubt and accuse the US in the event it does happen.
Also: He’s absolutely right.
I disagree that martyring Putin would be the most productive solution. The Russians managed to get Gorbachev out of office without resorting to assassination.
It’s helpful if you want to give Putin/Russia an excuse to refuse to de-escalate and a fantastic “look how aggressive the West is being” soundbite.
Exactly. This will come back to bite everyone, eventually. What a stupid, foolish thing for Graham to say.
