Lindsay Graham's bad cop performance

by digby

To Trump's good cop. The end result will be ... nothing.

Realizing that he was causing some problems with the Iran-haters who have thrown their lot in with the Saudis he made sure they knew he hated them even more:

During an interview on Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) responded to Elizabeth Warren’s announcement that she has Native American ancestry by announcing that he too is planning to take a DNA test.

Hosts concluded the interview by urging Graham to come back on the show soon to reveal the results of his test.

“I’ll be probably be Iranian. That’d be like, terrible,” Graham said, in an attempt to be humorous. (Note: Remarks begin at 6:19 in the video)

Graham’s stunningly casual bigotry was too much even for host Brian Kilmeade, who tried to help him out by saying, “They’re great people, just bad leaders.”

Graham, however, kept digging.

“Yeah, bad leaders,” Graham said. “I’m not in the ayatollah branch.”

Ain't he sweet?

He's first and foremost a nasty little snot. This is his time.
