Bestselling writer Don Winslow is the latest in a long line of people to highlight how Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) attitude toward President Donald Trump has radically shifted in recent years.
“The Cartel” author attacked Graham with a 41-second “Valentine’s Day” montage that he shared on Twitter Friday.
The supercut starts with clips of Graham fiercely criticizing then-reality-TV personality Trump before the 2016 election. It ends with footage of him lavishing praise on Trump once he’d become president.
“What made Lindsey flip? We know. The truth is coming,” reads text that flashes up on the screen.
Check out Winslow’s post here:
It’s unclear whether Winslow actually produced the video himself, or what “truth” it alludes to. He did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for further information.
Graham’s astonishing change in tone toward Trump has been called out by others on multiple occasions, however.
The @LGsConscience account on Twitter pretends to be Graham’s conscience by sharing one old video of him attacking Trump every day:
The Intercept’s Mehdi Hasan, meanwhile, described Graham as the “most shameless man in American politics” with this explainer:
Winslow in January joined forces with horror novelist Stephen King in a bid to get White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham to hold the Trump administration’s first official press briefing since March 2019.
In exchange for a one-hour conference, the pair offered to donate $150,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, in Grisham’s name. She did not take them up on the weeklong challenge.
