Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has a very contentious relationship with members of the Squad, dating back to them calling for his resignation.
Graham just hit them back hard for their open support for Palestine after the Hamas attack against Israel.
Expect some fireworks to go off for some time between Graham and the Squad members over this attack.
As I noted above, this goes back to them calling for Graham to resign from office.
Reps. Tlaib (D-MI), Jayapal (D-WA), and Omar (D-MN) have all called for his resignation in the past, so there is no love lost there.
Then, after the attack by Hamas against Israel, Reps. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Pressley (D-MA), Bush (D-MO), Bowman (D-N.Y.), and Omar called for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas rather than openly supporting Israel after the horrific terror attack against its nation.
Tlaib was far worse, however, referring to Israel as an "apartheid" state:
"I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day."
"As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue."
It took no time at all for Graham to jump all over this.
Graham went nuclear, stating:
"To the squad, shut the hell up. You're emboldening the enemy, you are a disgrace to the United States Congress. You are siding with terrorists over a democracy called Israel.
"You have lost your perspective here. I am confident most Democrats do not agree with the squad."
Graham also laid into the Biden administration, stating:
"Your appeasement policy towards Iran is not working."
The stance here by American congressmen and congresswomen is more than just a bit baffling to me.
Their job is to protect our interests and the interests of our allies, but that does not seem to be the case here.
There are numerous Biden administration officials in the State Department, past and present, who have referred to countries like Iran as "our" country.
There is a difference between an immigrant saying that versus someone employed by the government who has been tasked with protecting the United States. If you are in that role, I don't care where you are from; the ONLY country you should be referring to as your country should be the United States.
I think it is a safe bet that more of our elected representatives will have just as harsh a response as Graham has had to this terrorist attack.
