Twitter eviscerates Sen. Lindsey Graham over his condolence tweet following Sen. John McCain’s death: “Then stand up to despot” Donald Trump.
Graham tweeted: “America and Freedom have lost one of her greatest champions. And I’ve lost one of my dearest friends and mentor.”
America and Freedom have lost one of her greatest champions.
….And I’ve lost one of my dearest friends and mentor.

Graham recently sold-out to Donald Trump by agreeing that he should replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions because he had lost confidence in him. That’s after Graham previously stated there would be hell to pay if Trump fired Sessions.
Donald Trump disrespected Sen. McCain during the 2016 presidential campaign, saying that he was a war hero because he was captured. He continued his attacks on McCain, even mocking his “thumb down” after he blocked a repeal of the Affordable Care Act. White House staffers leaked to the Washington Post that Trump doesn’t regret belittling McCain because he was a POW.
John McCain has made clear that he does not want Donald Trump to attend his funeral. He wants former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, to eulogize him.
Reaction on Twitter:
You are a Judas and a traitor. That John McCain had to see what a treacherous man you had become before he died is a tragedy.

You will live with the shame of throwing your supposed friend under the bus in his dying days – may your final days, when they come – be dovoid of friendship and caring RIP John McCain

He stood for #CountryOverParty and there’s a lot to admire about that.

He was ashamed of your cowardice at the end.

You could at least stand up against Trump to show you mean it.

What @realDonaldTrump said about @SenJohnMcCain‘s military service was one of many disgraceful, deplorable things he has said and done. That alone should have ended his candidacy. I will never forget how he treated our hero.

You betrayed him, when he most needed you. I can only imagine the sadness he must have felt, to see his dear friend turn against the Nation he loved so much. Maybe you can muster an ounce of courage and, once again, be the Senator he was proud to call a friend.
