Elizabeth Warren Scorches Lindsey Graham With Dig About Where His Spine Actually Resides

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren wasn't afraid to blast the hypocrisy of fellow Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, in her recent interview with MSNBC.

Graham is known for his sudden flip from calling Donald Trump a nut job to being a staunch supporter of the current President. Graham recently announced his preemptive backing of the POTUS' latest wish—in this case a Supreme Court Nominee to fill the vacancy left by late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

On social media, people couldn't get enough of her fiery response and theory on where Graham's spine could have gone.




In 2016 Sen. Graham had different views on Supreme Court appointments during an election year and asked to be held to it.

He said:

"I want you to use my words against me. If there's a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said, 'Let's let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination, and you could use my words against me and you'd be absolutely right."

Graham's words came back to bite him full force.

Does he enjoy being dunked on?

Because he set himself up so well.




When Graham surrendered the Senate's duty of advice and consent by declaring his favor of a still unnamed nominee, Warren was happy to oblige his earlier request.

Warren told MSNBC:

"Lindsey Graham has simply said, 'Donald Trump has my proxy on this, Senate doesn't need to look at it, if the president is good, Lindsey Graham is good."

Adding:

"There's a man with a spine ― a spine kept in a box somewhere else because he certainly doesn't have it to exercise for himself."

Twitter exploded with support and humor over Warren's response.










President Trump named the SCOTUS nominee on Saturday despite Justice Ginsburg's dying wish that the nomination be held off until after the upcoming inauguration.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the second woman and first Jewish woman to serve on the Supreme Court. She served for 27 years.

The late Justice is the first woman to ever lie in state at the US Capital. Given the sheer number of mourners she is also the first justice to have two days viewing at the Supreme Court.
