Twitter Mocks Lindsey Graham For Admitting Trump’s Wall Is Just A ‘Metaphor’


Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) became the object of widespread ridicule and mockery on Sunday when he slipped up by telling reporters that President Donald Trump’s border wall is just a “metaphor.”

The government shutdown has lasted over a week now because Trump didn’t get billions of taxpayer dollars to pay for his vanity project, which has gone from being a wall to not being a wall, but a barrier or steel slats as Trump continues to desperately rebrand the wall in a pathetic effort to dupe Democrats into funding it.

And now the wall is nothing more than a $5 billion “metaphor” according to Graham, who spoke to reporters after taking a break from a meeting with Trump.

“The wall has become a metaphor for border security,” Graham said before going on to claim that Trump won’t sign a bill to end the shutdown unless he gets his way.

Here’s the video via Twitter.

If Trump really cared about border security, he would sign the bipartisan continuing resolution unanimously passed by the Senate prior to Christmas, which included a whole lot of extra border security funding, albeit without wall money. Furthermore, he could have signed a deal offered by Democrats earlier this year that would have included $25 billion for his wall and a load of border security funds, but he rejected both bills over a wall that will do nothing to stop illegal immigration and illicit drugs from crossing over into the country.

Graham’s mistake drew mockery by Twitter users.

Once again, Graham humiliated himself in his effort to defend and support Trump.
