In a reply to the president’s tweet equating the impeachment inquiry with ‘a lynching’, South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had this to say in defense of the president:

“This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American,” Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters at the Capitol, calling the impeachment process “a sham” and a “joke.”

Not everyone from the Republican party are having it though. Including Michael Steele:

Michael Steele, who is black and the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, tweeted a black and white image of an African American man hanging from a tree.

This is a lynching,” Steele tweeted to Trump and to Graham. “Trump this is not happening to you and it’s pathetic that you act like you’re such a victim; but it did happen to 147 black people in your state Lindsey. ‘A lynching in every sense?’ You should know better.”

Although not every Republican is defending the president, even those with objections are being pretty tepid. Where exactly is the line to be crossed that will finally strengthen their spines?

And I can’t believe that even Senator Graham has fallen to such lows because of President Trump.
