When most individuals learn that nobody likes them, their first response is to ask why. Then maybe they engage in some thoughtful self-reflection to determine what they can do to make people dislike them less. That’s called personal growth.
Unless you’re Sen. Lindsey Graham.
When the antigay senator from South Carolina learned nobody likes him, he went on Fox News to complain about it.
Graham appeared on Fox & Friends this morning, where he whined about how he’s “being killed” by his Democratic opponent Jamie Harrison because people “hate my guts.”
“My opponent will raise $100 million in the state of South Carolina,” Graham said. “The most money ever spent in the history of the state on a Senate race in this state was by me in 2014 when I spent $13 million.”
“I’m being killed financially,” he continued. “This money is because they hate my guts.”
At least Graham is aware people really, really, really don’t like him. Whether that inspires him to change his behavior is another question.

Earlier this week, Graham made similar claims when he told Fox News, “I’m getting outraised 3 to 1, outspent 4 to 1.”
But The Hill reports that Graham’s statement–about fundraising, not about everybody hating him–doesn’t appear to be factually accurate. At least, not according to the most recent Federal Election Commission filings.
In June, reports showed Harrison had raised just over $28 million, compared to Graham’s $29 million. Graham also held a cash advantage over Harrison, with $15 million in reserves compared to Harrison’s $10.2 million.
Sooooo either Harrison has raised close to $72 million since then, which would be absolutely astonishing, or Graham is lying to Fox News viewers in hopes that they’ll blindly open their coffers to him.
Which do you think is the more likely scenario?
The latest polls find Graham and Harrison running neck and neck, with Graham leading by just one point, which is well within the margin of error.
Being a lying hypocritical homophobe had a price. Media never points out that although Republicans always claim to be the Party of personal responsibility, the first time some of these folks actually get into a difficult situation they always cry and play victim.
Keep crying Miss Lindsay.
Looks like you’re blaming the victim. LOL. For once I agree.
Add me to the list of haters. Please … Please … Graham must resign. He is a liar, hater, deceiver. He’s a snake in the grass … or in this case … Senate.
Now let’s see what the “religious” supporters will do with Lindsey.
I’m question Rudy Giuliani’s law license covers all the states and elsewhere. Rudy has become a clown. I believe only idiots seek his representation. Maybe the IRS should take a look at his finances.
And the AMA should do something about these “doctors” practicing medicine while employed as politicians.
Dr. Scott Atlas is a radiologist and who has no expertise in infectious diseases or epidemiology. Does the AMA now allow doctors to practice outside the area of their expertise and license? And there’s more: Dr. Scott Atlas, an adviser on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, apologized after appearing in an interview with Russian state broadcaster RT, just days before. This quack must go!
You need guts first for us to hate.
What’s there to like?
Sad part is he’ll be reelected. I will never understand why but both he and McConnell will be reelected. People just vote against their self interests.
Because they are from the south where the majority of residents are ignorant, hate driven trash. Always have been, always will be. I lived in several places in the south and there are many, many great people there but sadly, they are in the minority.

Lindsay, when I was young I used to tell my grandmother the same thing and she would respond with “what are you doing to make people feel that way about you”. Maybe grandmothers are different in South Carolina but most southern grandmothers for one reason or other either sit or simply backhand slap their grandkids down at some time in their young lives and make them take a look at themselves.
Well maybe don’t be a hypocrite. Maybe don’t tell people to use your words against you to call out your hypocrisy then get made four years later when they do that very thing. Maybe quit talking out of both sides of your mouth. Maybe turn your self-loathing into self-acceptance and kick open the closet door instead of acting as if you’re some butch top who pounds the p***y nightly. I dunno, pick one and maybe people will hate you a little less. Or at least do one better and forget your ever existed.
“You reap what you sow.”
I used to respect Lindsey Graham. Not that I agreed with him. I didn’t. On nearly every issue. But he seemed willing to listen and more open to compromise years ago. Ever since he became Trump’s mouthpiece, his stock has nosedived. He contradicts his own statements, has become fluent in nonsense and is so deeply entrenched in Trump’s derriere that there’s nothing behind the curtain anymore. I have zero respect for the guy now and there’s no point in having someone like that in government. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit if he loses in November.
If he’d only stop and think about what he has done the last few years, he’d have his own answer why some people hate him. I have no sympathy for people like him. He’s getting what he planted in his own life garden.
This girl is tired and ready for the other shoe to drop. Oh, and a traitor to democracy as well.

Lady G is in a tizzy and wants some sympathy, in the form of cash that is! Oh I do admit that I love watching her throw a temper tantrum but at this point I think it’s fair game to say the best thing that could happen now is that the voters force Lady G out of politics so she can then be free to live her truth! She’s no spring chicken and she’s so deep in the closet she’s finding Christmas present tags from the 60’s! Yes vote her out and she will have the chance to live life to the fullest and honor her true calling (I’m thinking gay cruise liaison)!
She’s a mess.
In 2016, Graham said, “Trump is a bigot who’s unfit for President”. He’s never explained his sudden turn-around. But hypocrisy is hated by everyone.
Miss Lindsay G is only an older version of that other crybaby Aaron Schmuck. Once she leaves office she will come out and no one will care. She told the media to call her out back in 2018 about the Supreme Court and an election year. So now she needs to please her master Trump and be the hypocrite everyone knows her to be
Whiney little bitch act works for him well to stir up his donations. It worked in the frat boy Kavanaugh hearing to turn the tone.
Now, do your service to Benedict Arnold-in-chief. Bend over and pull your pants down. Enjoy
Glad to hear he’s keeping in touch with the mood of the country.
HAHA LINDSEY GRAHAM IF YOU PAID ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU SAID WHEN TRUMP FIRST RAN FOR OFFICE YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUMP! WHAT YOU DID WAS RAM YOUR NOSE RIGHT UP TRUMP’S ASS!
Everyone hates Lindsey for good reason.
Maybe it would be a good thing for him if he is defeated. Then he can live his life the way he wants without having to hide who he is. Or, maybe not. And I don’t hate him, I just feel sorry for him that his lifestyle has caused him to have to suck up to Dump because the Prez has film of him doing something he shouldn’t be doing. If Graham had guts he would do what he is supposed to do and stop being afraid.
This vile closet-case is a soulless, heartless coward who is a total puppet for the fake president. He’s useless and as corrupt as they get.
Nobody likes a whiny Graham cracker past its shelf life. Like add water instant milk, you’re nothing but powder that can disappear with the wind….poof!
……boo hoo, you’re a lying sack of shit and we’re counting the days until your demise……
Miss Pitty Pat is having a bad day. When will someone finally out him? Isn’t there a pool boy we could uncover!!
Ms Lindsey, you are not only a damn liar about your money raised, also about being gay! I’m out, why won’t you? By the way, I am sure you are hated by millions for being an lousy, lying hateful hypocrite! Do you wear dress at home?
Hate is too weak of a word for how we feel about you. I am not sure there is a word for how we feel about you and your piece of sh-t overlord. Burn in hell.
LOL Oh, no, no, no. Hate is far too mild a word.
