Ha ha?

Is it OK for liberals to crack misogynistic gay jokes at Lindsey Graham’s expense?

Never in a million years did we think we’d be writing a post defending Lindsey Graham, but hear us out for a sec…

Last week, Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary committee in what will likely go down in history as the most bizarre and incendiary judicial interview process in history.

During the hearing, Graham, who has long been dogged by gay rumors, had an emotional outburst, shouting his support for Kavanaugh and calling the whole hearing an “unethical sham” and “the most despicable thing I’ve seen in politics.”

It was quite dramatic, to say the least.

Many responded to Graham’s tantrum in a way one might not expect from people who identify as liberal or progressive… by hurling antigay slurs while cracking misogynistic gay jokes about the senator.

First came the tweets…

Then came the memes…

Even Saturday Night Live got in on the action by having Kate McKinnon impersonate 63-year-old Graham in a skit that included no shortage of jabs at his rumored sexual orientation.

Now, we totally get it. Lindsey Graham is not a good guy and certainly no ally to the LGBTQ community.

Not only did he oppose the repeal of DADT and gay-inclusive immigration reform, but he was also staunchly against gay marriage, calling it a road to polygamy.

And the way he behaved last week was embarrassing both for himself and for the country.

But surely there are ways to criticize him that don’t involve cracking lame gay jokes or, worse, using homophobic slurs against him?
