Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham was criticized Wednesday after he referred to segregation as "the good old days" during Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing. Though Graham, a Republican, later told reporters that he made the comment with "deep sarcasm," the incident drew quick backlash from his Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, with whom Graham is battling for the state's Senate seat this election cycle. "The good old days for who, Senator?" Harrison said in a tweet accompanying a video clip of Graham's comment. "It's 2020, not 1920. Act like it."

Graham was just rephrasing MAGA because that is what MAGA stands for, the good old days of segregation. Graham can pretend he was kidding but he was also reminiscing about the good old days of the South when black people knew their place. And just in my defnse, I lived among the racists but I nevr was one, my Mother knew what was right and taught my family right. She was a big supporter of JFK and LBJ.

I watched this clip last night because he insists that he was being 'deeply sarcastic' and I had to see for myself the context. In no way did I take that as sarcasm. It almost seemed as though he said it so thoughtlessly as it just rolled off his tongue. Meaning to me that it was his personal thought/feeling and he didnt intentionally phrase it that way publicly. He only considered the words once they were out of his mouth and is now trying to cover his tracks.
