Big mistake, Lindsey.
It’s not cool to backstab your friends, especially the leader of the free world.
Earlier this week, Lindsey Graham turned his back on President Trump.
Because “a few people did something,” as Democrat Ilhan Omar would say.
Graham appeared to slam President Trump and blame him for the “riot” that happened at Capitol Hill.
He then even appeared to criticize Trump supporters.
Well, Lindsey made an even bigger mistake by going to the airport after backstabbing President Trump.
Patriots noticed Lindsey at the airport and began swarming around him.
It was Lindsey’s Walk of Shame.
People were yelling “AUDIT THE VOTE.”
Listen to the passion in their voices:

But it wasn’t just that he backstabbed President Trump.
Lindsey didn’t even attempt to help save President Trump’s reputation.
Instead, Lindsey appeared to jump on the bandwagon against President Trump, claiming that his reputation is forever damaged.

When it came to President Trump…
When it came to the MAGA movement…
When it came to defending free, fair, and transparent elections…
Lindsey Graham said:
Count me out. Enough is enough.
Lindsey barely survived his reelection campaign.
Now he must face the wrath of the people.
And voters have long memories.
Lindsey Graham: "Trump and I… we've had a hell of a journey. I hate it to end this way. Oh my god, I hate it… but today, all I can say is 'Count me out. Enough is enough. I've tried to be helpful.'" https://t.co/hxrZh9PRvt pic.twitter.com/rD4hqbeGjO

Politico confirms the altercation at the airport:
Sen. Lindsey Graham was verbally harassed by at least a couple dozen Donald Trump supporters at Reagan National Airport on Friday after his public break with the president, according to a person at the scene who provided a video of the incident.
Several people repeatedly loudly yelled at the South Carolina Republican that he was a “traitor.” One woman called him a “liar,” while another said, “You work for the people, you work for us, do you hear me?” They promised not to touch him as he was surrounded by security.
The identities of the people shouting at Graham couldn’t immediately be identified, and it’s unclear if they attended the Trump protest on Wednesday that turned into a deadly riot on Capitol Hill.
Several of the Trump supporters followed Graham as he walked around the airport with security guards.
“One day [you] will not be able to walk down the street. It is today,” yelled one woman who wasn’t wearing a mask in violation of airport rules. She was wearing a “I love Trump” shirt with the letter “Q” on the back of the shirt, a likely reference to the QAnon conspiracy theory.
Mindy Robinson, a conservative activist and actress, posted another video on Twitter of Graham at the airport, with the commentary: “Lindsey Graham just made the mistake walking by me and a mass of angry patriots at the airport in DC. All America wants is for you to AUDIT OUR VOTE and purge this election of this massive corruption…and you won’t do it. We’re not letting this ‘slide’ so expect more of this.”
On Wednesday night, Graham, who has often played golf with Trump and tried to influence his policy decisions, broke with the president, saying: “From my point of view, he’s been a consequential president. But today, first thing you’ll see. All I can say is, count me out. Enough is enough. I’ve tried to be helpful.”
Kevin Bishop, a spokesperson for Graham, declined to comment, saying, “we don’t discuss security issues.”
Eventually, you must reap what you sow.
And it looks like Graham’s actions are coming back to haunt him.

The incident is quickly going viral.
The Hill also covered it:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was harassed at an airport in Washington, D.C., on Friday, a day after Congress formally tallied President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College win.
Multiple videos posted to social media on Friday show Graham, who has been among President Trump’s most vocal Senate supporters, being followed through an airport and being heckled as a “traitor.”
Graham was buffered from the group by uniformed law enforcement as well as a security detail. A spokesperson for Graham declined to weigh in, saying that they don’t comment on security issues.
The group, many of whom were filming the incident, appeared to be Trump supporters who believe conspiracy theories about the election. Trump has claimed for weeks that the election was “rigged,” despite losing dozens of legal challenges and election experts dismissing claims of fraud.
At one point members of the group yell “audit the vote” and “you know it was rigged,” in reference to the presidential election, and call him a “piece of shit.”
Members of the group who followed and heckled Graham through the airport also include known supporters of QAnon, a baseless conspiracy theory that asserts that a group of Satan-worshipping, child-molesting Democrats and deep-state government officials has global control, and Trump is trying to expose them.
The confrontation comes a day after Congress tallied Biden’s win, a process that was delayed for hours after rioters overtook the Capitol, forcing lawmakers to move to secure locations as the mob vandalized leadership offices.
Graham has been one of Trump’s most vocal supporters in the Senate since 2017, but came out against challenging the election results through Congress. The effort was guaranteed to fall short regardless because a majority of both the House and Senate is required to successfully challenge a state’s Electoral College vote.
Graham, speaking on the Senate floor late Wednesday, said “enough is enough.”
Enough is enough of establishment politics!
The reason President Trump won is because the people had “ENOUGH.”
No wonder people at the airport were upset.
All freedom-loving Americans are.
