Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was booed off the stage in his own state during President Donald Trump’s South Carolina rally.
Sen. Graham spoke at Trump’s rally in Pickens but his remarks were drowned out but the crowd.
The place was packed and, even though Graham is from the area, the crowd let him have it.
Graham said over the boos: “Well, you want to find something in common?
“Just calm down a second.
“This is the place where people pay the taxes, fight the wars, and tell you what they believe.
“I found common ground with President Trump.
“I came to like President Trump, and he likes himself, so we got that in common.
“We got a lot of good people running,” Graham said.
“But there’s nobody our enemies are afraid of like Donald Trump.”
Easley resident Michael Propes, 60, told the Greenville News about Graham:
“I voted for him years ago, I voted for him last year, but we need to vote him out.”
William Billew, 74, said, “Graham doesn’t need to use Trump to get where he needs to go again.”
Mike Turnick of Pickens held nothing back and said Graham’s speech was “the low point of the day.
“He sounded like he wanted to talk more about himself instead of Trump.
“I didn’t care for his speech.”
During Trump’s speech, the 45th president offered a lukewarm defense of Graham:
“We’re going to love him,” Trump said.
“He’s half and half.
“When we need those liberal votes, we need him.
“We know the good ones.
“We know the bad ones too,” Trump said.
