The morning of the anniversary of the most violent attack on the U.S. Capitol since the country’s inception, President Joe Biden gave a fiery speech, condemning the coup attempted that day, its perpetrators, and placing the blame for the events that transpired squarely on former President Don Trump. Sources close to the situation are reporting that Biden’s speech upset one senator and ardent Trump defender so much, he took to social media and professed his extreme displeasure.
In a tweet, Senator Lindsey Graham (Q-Trump’s Taint) blasted President Biden’s speech, calling it “brazen politicization of January 6.”
What brazen politicization of January 6 by President Biden.
I wonder if the Taliban who now rule Afghanistan with al-Qaeda elements present, contrary to President Biden’s beliefs, are allowing this speech to be carried?

Later in the day, a breathless Graham, whose face seemed to be smeared with orange paint, particularly around his mouth region, explained his tweet a bit further.
“I know it might make me sound really stupid to accuse the president of politicizing political violence, and I know it might sound idiotic for me to say that Biden is making this about politics when the attack itself happened over politics,” Graham explained. “But that’s all a bunch of hogwash.”
Graham cleared his throat, expelling a small chuck of chewed-up Big Mac, and continued.
“It’s the Republican voters that are stupid. It’s the Republican voters that are idiots. Because they’re the ones who agree that Biden was politicizing January 6th, and they believe everything Don Trump says,” Graham said. “So I’m not stupid. I’m a disingenuous hack politician, and I really wish you all would keep those two things straight.”
Graham thanked the reporters and ran away as quickly as he could.
