Oh, come on. Didn’t we just do this yesterday? Yes we did.
As Twitchy reported Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle implied on the air that President Trump or someone else had “something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham” and was using it to blackmail him. “We’re gonna have to leave it there,” Ruhle added, probably because she had absolutely no evidence to back up her claim.
Qasim Rashid, host of the Re-Sight Islam podcast (#Jihad of the Pod … his hashtag, not ours), agreed, and caught the attention of freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, who agreed wholeheartedly that yes, Graham is compromised.
They got to him, he is compromised! https://t.co/m8sB3EmElg

Who’s “they,” and does this mean “they” have something extreme on all the other Republican candidates who trashed Trump during the primaries yet support him on issues like border security?
This really is dangerous rhetoric coming from a member of Congress.

Media covers for them so it won’t matter

CNN will be all over this.
A member of Congress is making this claim. But I guess we should assume they got Graham but not Omar? Or maybe, wait for it: they both hold positions they believe in. ??? https://t.co/DZ7rRj4LNJ

Even supporters are suggesting Omar tone it down a bit now that she’s tweeting as a member of Congress.
We might agree with you, but this does not appear becoming of your office.

Is he? Probably.
Should you say it without proof as a sitting Congresswomen. No.
With power comes a much higher standard of proof.

While I 100+% agree with you when tweeting something like this from your congressional account you need to have seen the receipts.
Guys, maybe she has seen the proof.

If she’d seen the proof, she would have posted it.
I can’t imagine how you have time for this. Go to work.

Better yet, don’t.
