‘You Are A Disgrace’: Lindsey Graham Tells Congressional ‘Squad’ Members To ‘Shut The Hell Up’


Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told left-wing members of the House of Representatives, known as “The Squad,” to “shut the hell up” as Israel began military operations against Hamas.

Democratic Reps. Cori Bush, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman of New York released statements calling for either “de-escalation” or “ending the occupation” after the attacks. At least 900 people have been killed and over 100 taken hostage by Hamas, the Associated Press reported, with the death toll expected to rise.


“To the squad, shut the hell up,” Graham told “America Reports” co-host Sandra Smith. “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.”

In May, Tlaib held an event that called the founding of Israel a “catastrophe” in a Senate hearing room after then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy blocked it from being held in the Capitol building.

Graham also ripped the Biden administration over its policies towards Iran, which included giving Iran access to $6 billion from oil sales that was being held by South Korea to use for humanitarian purposes in exchange for the release of five Americans being held in Iran.

While the Biden administration has claimed that the $6 billion did not fund the Hamas attack on Israel, experts said that the $6 billion held in escrow for humanitarian purposes enabled Iran to use other funds to support terrorism.

Former President Donald Trump led Republicans in blasting the arrangement, calling it a payment of “ransom.”

“Your appeasement policy towards Iran is not working,” Graham said.

  1. That’s one for Lindsey Graham. Wish he had said it to their faces. But at least these traitors will know how everyone is feeling about them now. They don’t ever make an effort to make themselves likeable to anyone, just the complete opposite. How they manage to get votes out of their constituents to win their jobs is beyond me. I hope their voters are keeping an ear out for what they are being told by these imposters.

  2. It’s one thing to have a differing opinion, it’s another to spout untruths to the American people, but then again none of them were voted in by American people. If it’s one thing we’ve learned from all the crap Trump has gone through is that our voting system is corrupt. It started on a small scale for those now known as the squad, but the left went full scale in 2020 for Biden!! I’m not a Maga nut, or an election denier, I’m just a realist who calls it as he sees it. God I miss my country.
