Lindsey Graham raised a lot of eyebrows recently when he called for the assassination of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin has been waging an unprovoked war against Ukraine. Graham appeared on Fox News where he made a call for Russians to kill their president.

Graham’s remark was met with disapproval from all sides of the political aisle. Liberal Democrats and staunch conservatives like Ilhan Omar and Ted Cruze both raked Graham over the coals for the idea. Lindsey Graham doesn’t care about their opinions.

TMZ caught up with the Senator at the airport recently. Graham was asked if he meant what he said. It was then that Lindsey Graham doubled down on his statement about the assassination of Vladimir Putin.

“Yeah, I mean, I think most Americans understand that Putin’s a war criminal. The sooner he’s gone, the better. The only way this ends in a sustainable fashion is for a Russian to take him out. I’m not asking for American boots on the ground, but I want to help Ukraine with military equipment and assistance.

Putin’s got away with murder for twenty years. Enough is enough. He’s got to go. One hundred percent.”

Lindsey Graham is showing no signs of backing down. Many have accused him of saying the quiet part out loud. Lindsey has no qualms about repeating his remarks as many times as it takes for someone to go through with it.
