Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stole the show at the Kavanaugh hearing last week after he made an impassioned defense of the disgusting “guilty until proven innocent” attacks and treatment of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. “Boy, y’all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham,” Graham yelled. He has since said that his anger has nothing on the wrath the late Sen. John McCain would have unleashed on the left. “I was hot as a fire, and then I met John, and John said . . . ‘Use it. You got capital. Use it,'” Graham said, and use it he did. Graham’s rant will go down in the annals of epic SCOTUS fights.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., hit the headlines Thursday for his outburst at Democrats questioning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — but he now says that his former colleague John McCain’s temper would have eclipsed his anger.
Graham blasted Senate Democrats during a hearing about sexual assault allegations made against Kavanaugh, who has repeatedly denied them. Kavanaugh was testifying after Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party in 1982, also testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
A furious Graham lambasted Democrats for what he cast as their attempts to destroy Kavanaugh for political purposes.
“Boy y’all want power, God I hope you never get it, I hope the American people can see through this sham,” he yelled.
LINDSEY GRAHAM’S KAVANAUGH MOMENT EARNS CONSERVATIVE PRAISE
“To my Republican colleagues,” Graham said. “If you vote no, you are legitimizing the most despicable thing I’ve ever seen in my time in politics.”
