Lindsey Graham says 'enough is enough', tells Trump their 'hell of a journey' is over: 'Hate to end this way'

'Trump and I, we've had a hell of a journey. I hate it to end this way. Oh my God, I hate it. From my point of view, he's been a consequential president. But today, the first thing you'll see. All I can say, is count me out, enough is enough,' Graham said

The seriousness of President Donald Trump's supporters breaching the US Capitol building and forcing an evacuation, on Wednesday, January 6, was apparently lost on Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as he took addressed the Senate and distanced himself from the President, calling it "hell of a journey" and recognized President-elect Joe Biden's win as "lawful." 

Graham, who has been a staunch supporter of Trump so far, emphatically defended to certify the electoral votes on the Senate floor, saying that he believed voting to object the results are a “uniquely bad idea to delay this election." 

"Trump and I, we've had a hell of a journey. I hate it to end this way. Oh my God, I hate it. From my point of view, he's been a consequential president. But today, the first thing you'll see. All I can say, is count me out, enough is enough," Graham said. Citing a number of cases in which Trump had lost, including the Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision on election results, he added, "We've got to end it. Vice President Pence, what they're asking you to do you won't do, because you can't."

Graham ended his remarks by fully backing the election results. "It is over... [Biden] won. He's the legitimate President to the United States... Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected and will become the President and the Vice President of the United States on January 20," he said.

However, the manner in which is spoke seemed to be an attempt at invoking laughter, a tone that was lost on the lawmakers present in the Senate, especially after the Capitol building was breached by the rioters, resulting in the death of a female protester. 

Meena Harris, the niece of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris tweeted, "I swear to god people praising Lindsey Graham's speech?????????? STOP" Soon others chimed in. "Lindsey Graham gave that speech like he has to leave the country at the end of it and didn't want to miss his flight," one of them said, while another wrote, "Please retweet if you agree Lindsey Graham gets no points for doing this now. None. Zero."

There were also people claiming that Graham was drunk. "Drunk Lindsey Graham thought it was a good time for some good old Southern humor after an insurrection that left a woman dead and the Capitol in shambles. It’s all just a little misunderstanding." one of them said. Another quipped, "Lindsey Graham is a mess." One more added, "Lindsey Graham drunkenly performing his solo cabaret show 'Lady G Sings The Blues'." One more asked, "Is Lindsey Graham drunk?"

Another commented, "Lindsey Graham reminds me of the Governor in 'Best Little Whorehouse In Texas.' What a side stepping toad!" The next said, "Graham seems to be working the room for an unseemly number of laughs considering the violence and calamity today." A commenter tweeted, "Super weird and tone deaf...yes? Or is it just me?" One more said, "Agree... I was uncomfortable watching him turn about looking for admiration... eeeeeeeeno" Another remarked, "Vodka or bourbon?" One person wrote, "He looked and sounded like he started drinking quite early today."
