Lindsay Graham supports President Trump, and he doesn’t give a damn what you think about it.
That’s the takeaway from a live interview he had on CNN Friday morning, in which he used a four-letter word to describe exactly how he feels about those who don’t like that he works with the President.
Graham, who has worked with Presidents on both sides of the aisle, explained that the media loved him when he found common ground with Barack Obama, but despise him when he does the same with the current occupant of the White House.
“Let me just tell you about the critics,” Graham lamented. “When I worked with President Obama, and I did on occasion, I was a hero. And now I work with President Trump and I’m two-faced.”
Still, he has just one thing to say to his current critics.
“If you don’t like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don’t give a s***,” he said.

Graham has recently offered well-earned praise for the President’s efforts in establishing peace on the Korean peninsula.
Prior to the historic summit between Trump and Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Graham had said “We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”
He noted during his CNN interview that he has a pretty solid personal relationship with the President.
“I trust the president,” Graham said. “I like the president. I trust him in terms of trying to do things that are big and matter. Here’s what I’ve got. I’ve got a relationship with the president at a time when I think he needs allies.”

Graham also analyzed the Inspector General report on the DOJ, saying it “crippled” the credibility of the department and the FBI.
“If you don’t believe that the average American is going to think that the FBI is far more political than they ever believed, that’s crazy,” he said.
The problem is, people like Comey, Strzok, McCabe … they also don’t give a s*** what people think.
