Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina defended President Donald Trump’s racist tweets — against Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and other Democrats — by making numerous false claims about Ocasio-Cortez and the others on “Fox and Friends”:
We all know AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border, Border Patrol agents concentration camp guards. They accuse people support Israel doing it for the Benjamins.
They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America. Don’t get down, aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies. Their policies will destroy this country. Focus on what they want to do for America and to America and compare it with what you’ve done. Don’t get personal. Don’t take the bait. This is not about a person. It is about a country. It is about a set of ideas. They’re on the wrong side of the future.
