Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), along with the rest of the GOP, has complained about President Obama being a tyrant. That is, of course, when he’s not been weak and apologetic. So it’s not what he does but how he does it, and Mr. Graham has a suggestion on how to be a real tyrant:
And here’s the first thing I would do if I were president of the United States. I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to. We’re not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We are not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts.
I love it when he’s so butch.
Sen. Graham’s office later released a clarification:
Graham’s spokesperson has clarified to Bloomberg that when Graham said “I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to,” that statement was “not to be taken literally.” Glad that’s been cleared up.
Obviously he was joking and no one takes him seriously, but when you’re teasing the crowd about running for president, you can’t just make a funny and not expect people to hear it and run with it.
