And he wonders why he’s polling at less than 1%.
Lindsey Graham may not approve of everything President Barack Obama does, but he believes there is an unhealthy dislike of the president within his party.
The South Carolina senator was asked on CNN’s “New Day” if he is worried that his comments last night about Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims will harm his standing with Republicans. Graham during the undercard debate on Tuesday night apologized to America’s “Muslim friends” for Trump’s inflammatory proposal.
“To those people that believe Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya I’ve lost ya a long time ago,” Graham said before continuing, “There’s a dislike for President Obama in my party that’s unhealthy. There was a dislike for President Bush in the Democratic Party that was unhealthy.”
Graham said that Obama is “my president” and that the two talked Tuesday about how they could work together to help the new prime minister of Iraq.
