Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spoke with Eric Bolling of Newsmax about the recent rhetoric Democrats have been spewing about the shooting in Buffalo. Graham says the GOP didn’t blame Democrats for the Steve Scalise shooting —so “why are they calling us racist?”
Bolling and Graham also discussed a recent Rolling Stone article: “The Buffalo Shooter Isn’t a ‘Lone Wolf.’ He’s a Mainstream Republican”
“[N]obody on the right accused the man who tried to kill Scalise and shot Republicans at the baseball practice of representing the Democratic Party. We’re better than that. Nobody accused the person who was a Bernie supporter, who attacked Republican congressman at the baseball game of representing the mainstream of the Democratic Party. I find that headline offensive. This is why I don’t read Rolling Stone.”
Graham also shared his thoughts on the success of minority communities under President Trump and suggested the Democrats are making this a race issue because they have no policy successes to run on.
“When’s the last time you heard a Democrat talk about ‘how our policies help the average American?'” Graham says.
