Skip to comments.‘Bring it on!’: Lindsey Graham and constituents shout over each other in latest town hall debacle
Posted on 03/28/2017 7:23:13 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
Inundated with boos from a raucous town hall crowd, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) snapped back, lashing out at one attendee for asking a garbage question and slamming many for not accepting the result of the 2016 presidential election.
Toward the end of the hour-long town hall in Columbia, S.C., people were standing up.
Your last term! Your last term! they chanted.
The senator fired back, telling the crowd that he does not and will not worry about losing his job in the 2020 election.
Good! Good! Come on, bring it on! Bring it on! Graham said. If I win, fine. If I dont, fine. But heres what youre going to get from me. Youre going to get somebody that tells you exactly what I believe. And to everybody in this room, its okay to be mad. Its okay to be upset.
Republicans who have hosted town halls have endured protests, sharp rebukes and emotional questions about what they see as a sharp turn in governance as well as the House and Senates willingness to check the White House, The Washington Posts Dan Zak and Terence Samuel wrote last month.
Some GOP lawmakers have opted against holding town halls. President Trump has dismissed the so-called angry crowds as liberal activists.

What a cocky POS. Only garbage in the room is you Linda.
Glad to see others expressing their displeasure with LG.
sounds like the anti-Trump protesters showed up.
Trees and rope were invented I believe for dillweeds like these - this is exactly the of BS tryanny the tree of liberty is thirsting to drink. Gramham is a war mongering traitor who will send your sons and daughters off to die in whatever stupid war we are up to this week. Politicians suck and need to be reminded of the pecking order lets start with John and Lindsey - Senators especially.
I'm not advocating violence at anti-American Senators here I'm just highlighting its probably overdue at this point
Flimsey Grahamnesty should not have been re-elected last time.
They had a good replacement in Lee Bright.
But South Carolina voters love their Cheap Labor Express stooges, just look at the rest of their Congressional delegation.
Pity there was no “torches and pitchforks” vendor in the vicinity. This arrogant old queen is due for a comeuppance.
“What a cocky POS. Only garbage in the room is you Linda.”
I’m sure the leftists in the room are garbage. I mean... that’s kind of the definition of a leftist.
Linda never accepted Trump as President so he’s a one to talk. But I’m glad they gave him a hard time - the complacent loser!
Considering Linda and McCain didn’t accept the 2016 election results...
Every one of those voting for the Gang of Amnesty need to be removed from office.
Corker, Hatch, Heller and Flake in 2018
Alexander and Graham in 2020
McCain, Murkowsky, Hoven and Rubio in 2022
Does anyone here like Graham?
It’s not just liberal activists that hate him.
It’s about time someone stood up against the rent-a-mob. He wasn’t being “cocky, he was dressing down the know-nothing rabble who came to create chaos. He did a fine job defending Ivanka Trump and several of Trump’s cabinet picks.
In this case he isn’t “garbage” nor a “POS”. Save those epithets for the radical instigators in the audience.
“The senator fired back, telling the crowd that he does not and will not worry about losing his job in the 2020 election.”
Bold words for a guy from just about the most Republican state in the union. Hey, Graham: How about representing the people instead, you ****ing **** piece of human *****?
For all of Sen. Graham’s many, many, many, many flaws, I suspect that these particular protestors were leftist agitators, possibly bought and paid for by Soros and/or his ilk. Garbage of a much smellier variety than the establishment hack they protested.
Columbia, the state capital, and the surrounding area is the only significant part of the state that went for Hillary.
This is likely a case of the enemy of my enemy is definitely not my friend.
Graham is just another humble servant of the people.
Are the only people showing up at these things militant libtards?
Hell all Linda had to do is tell them he’s really a Dimocrat.
Soros Rent a Mob. Doing the Job South Carolina won’t do.
Got to be circumspect about this eruption against Graham as reported by our favorite newspaper, The Washington Post.
’Your last term! Your last term!’ they chanted.” Unless some freeper eyewitness can report otherwise the “they” is the people we despise here on FR. And “they” mean “Graham, you’re going to lose to the Democrat challenger.” When I chant “Your last term (in my head), I am hoping for a credible well funded ass-kicking against him in the primary.
