In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump toady Graham weighed in on the ex-president’s feud with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Graham said he’d tell McConnell that “I know Trump can be a handful but he is the most dominant figure in the Republican Party.”
Tensions have escalated between Trump and McConnell in recent days. McConnell voted to acquit Trump in his Senate impeachment trial for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot, but then condemned him as “morally responsible” for the violence.
Trump hit back with a lengthy statement, calling McConnell “a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack” who was “destroying the Republican side of the Senate.”
McConnell was “indispensable” to Trump during his time in office, said Graham. He called on the two Republicans to stop their war of words.
“I’m more worried about 2022 than I’ve ever been,” Graham added elsewhere in the interview, below, in which he also urged GOP senators to acknowledge that without Trump “we’re never going to get back in the majority.”
