America’s Gentleman Bachelor may be living in a vagina-free zone, but I’ll give this to the ageing fairy, he does have a set of balls on his.
Case in point: While appearing on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning program, hostess Dana Bash was going back and forth with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in regards to President Trump’s announced plan to withdraw all US troops from Syria and roughly halve the number of troops currently deployed to Afghanistan.
As the conversation drifted to the reason why Barack Obama ordered the total withdrawal from Iraq in 2011, Bash immediately (and incorrectly) defended Obama, stating that he was legally bound to cut-and-run from Iraq due to the SOFA (Status of Forces Agreement) signed back in 2008.
It was then that the senior senator from the Palmetto State got rather testy with Bash, telling her in live TV that her defense of Obama was “a bunch of bullshit.”
As reported by The Daily Caller;
During a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Graham said that he doesn’t approve of President Donald Trump’s decision to pull troops from Syria and Afghanistan but added that the president inherited a “bad hand” from Obama.
“Everything we’re dealing with today falls on Obama’s watch,” Graham argued. “He’s the one who withdrew from Iraq.”
“But he did it because there was a Status of Forces Agreement,” host Dana Bash interrupted.
The U.S. and Iraq finalized a Status of Forces Agreement in 2008 wherein the U.S. government agreed to pull all troops out of Iraq by the end of 2011. However, the agreement was dependent on the current status of ground operations and the Bush administration expected that Obama would renegotiate the deal rather than pull out all of the troops at once.
“No, that’s a bunch of bullshit,” Graham responded to Bash’s point. “Pardon my French — that’s a complete lie.”
Graham doubled down and asserted that pulling the troops out of Iraq was a personal desire of Obama’s rather than something that was forced because of an agreement between the two countries.
“[Trump] was dealt a bad hand by Obama and he needs to play it better than he’s playing it,” Graham said. “I’m gonna talk to him at lunch.”
