What happened to Lindsey Graham?

I remember when he called Trump a race-bating xenophobic bigot. He was a moderate voice. Now he has ditched every principle he ever held. He has no empathy for anyone, apart from the man he dismissed as an irrelevant racist. He cannot even show empathy for a woman who says she was the victim of an attempted rape. People don't just change into a different person. Something happened. Something got to him. Something changed beyond all recognition. What happened?

21. I could be wrong but it sure looks like it -

especially when Graham did a 180 on his previous opinion that Trump shouldn't fire Sessions. Sessions loves being AG (except for being constantly berated by Trump) because he has the power he didn't have in the Senate to make life miserable for immigrants and people of color. The job is a racist's wet dream. Why Graham might want it is anybody's guess, but as long as he keeps kissing Trump's ass and doesn't recuse himself he won't get fired.

31. He probably thinks six years as AG will set him up for a run as a law-and-order president.

Plus, as long as you cover Trump's ass you don't have 99 other assholes to make nice with.

And being able to make life horrible for non-whites is a segregationist's dream job. Not that Lindsey is a segregationist, but I haven't heard him put forward any civil rights legislation lately -- or ever.

9. SC is Trump country.

He is up in 2020. He doesn’t want to be primaried and lose his seat. Lots of GOP state reps are gunning for his spot. He has to back Trump or he will lose.

This is what happens in a one party red state.

but without a robust support from base republicrats, he can not win the primary.

Of course once he wins the primary, he will be losing some indies in the general.

I think it's way worse--something on the lines of Denny Hastert/Mark Foley would be my guess. He's also taken a shitpile of money from the Russians. Could be a lot more than what has been reported.

24. Nothing to explain.

It's just a guess. Most folks here already assume he's gay, and they don't care. The only thing they care about is that he toes the party line. Whatever he's hiding, it's a lot, lot worse than his alleged sexual orientation. Something like being fond of under-aged males, or sheep, or something like that.

16. It all started with a private golf game with Trump

Up till that visit to the links, Graham was a fierce Trump critic. One quiet golf game with Trump made Graham do a 180. Trump told him something during that visit, something that made Graham change his tune. And yes, I think it's something the Russians have on him. Rumors are that it has to do with Graham's sexual orientation, which will destroy him with his base.

32. Why would it though? It's kind of an open secret.

Just like everyone pretty much knows that Trump has been pissed on by hookers. Revealing these things would not really shock anybody. I think there has to be more to it. They have to be financially compromised in some way or it's something worse. I think that their sexual secrets would be the least shocking things to come out about them.

He's showing who he truly is and who he always has been.

I'm guessing that at one time it was expedient for him to appear to be someone else.
