Here’s another reminder that Republican Senator Lindsey Graham ain’t shit, ain’t never been sh*t, and won’t ever BE sh*t.
In a recent interview with Chris Wallace, Sen. Graham insisted that systematic racism no longer exists in the United States because Barack Obama and Kamala Harris both got elected.
“We just elected a two-term African American president; the vice president is of African American and Indian descent. So our systems are not racist,” the South Carolina senator said. “America is not a racist country. Within every society, you have bad actors. The Chauvin trial was a just result.”
The comments arrive just a few days after Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murder in the death of George Floyd. Following the conviction of the former Minneapolis police officer, President Joe Biden said the killing of Floyd “ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism” that has become a “stain on our nation’s soul.”
Chauvin, who was found guilty on all three counts—second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter—is now facing a combined sentence of 75 years behind bars. However, it’s reported that he will likely be hit with a 15-year prison sentence because he has no prior criminal record.
According to CNN, Chauvin is scheduled to be sentenced on June 16, a little over one year after Floyd was killed while in police custody.
We’re not ones to wish harm on others, but if harm found its way to Lindsey we would not be upset.
