Lindsay Graham is a Liar and Hypocrite. Why has he changed his tune about Trump? There are two answers, he knows there is a good chance Trump will be impeached, and thus his party will be utterly destroyed, or, he wants Donald to lead a Holy Crusade. Why not both?

Reese Witherspoon and her kindred are illustrious pioneers of South Carolina. Will she and Oprah go after Graham who now supports the ‘Lying Pussy Grabber’? Are politicians immune?

I don’t believe the Bill Clinton defense will work as we impeached Bill Clinton.

I was there. 

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), on Monday, said he no longer believes President Trump is a “xenophobic, race-baiting religious bigot,” despite using those words to describe Trump during the 2016 campaign.

“He ran against 17 Republicans and crushed us all. He ran against the Clinton machine and won. So all I can say is you can say anything you want to say about the guy. I said he was a xenophobic, race-baiting, religious bigot. I ran out of things to say. He won,” Graham said on “The View.”

R-S.C., but that doesn’t mean Graham won’t carry Trump’s water when it comes to their common prejudices about the Muslim world.

“The one thing I like about President Trump is that he understands we are fighting a religious war,” Graham told Fox News on Tuesday night. “We are fighting people who are compelled by their religious views to kill us all. They kill fellow Muslims who don’t agree with their view of Islam, they kill Christians and vegetarians, libertarians, you name it. We are in a war.”

Access Hollywood” is responding to reports that President Trump doesn’t believe that the infamous tape of him on the program — bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent — is real.

“We wanted to clear something up that has been reported across the media landscape,” host Natalie Morales said during a Monday broadcast.

“Let us make this perfectly clear: The tape is very real,” she said. “Remember his excuse at the time was ‘locker room talk.’ He said every one of those words.”

Trump reportedly told a senator and an adviser earlier this year that he believes the tape, which was recorded in 2005 and came to light weeks before the 2016 presidential election, might not be authentic

America woke up Monday with a crazy idea in its addled brain: Oprah Winfrey could be the next president of the United States.

The notion has tugged at the imagination for as long as Winfrey has been famous, but her barnstorming speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday electrified much of the 56 percent of the populace that disapproves of her fellow television personality, President Trump. The viability of a Winfrey campaign, on Monday at least, seemed capable of uniting both ends of the political spectrum.

“I want her to run for president,” Meryl Streep told The Washington Post just after the Globes ceremony. “I don’t think she had any intention [of declaring]. But now she doesn’t have a choice.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday urged President Donald Trump to strongly and clearly condemn the white supremacist hate groups who stormed into Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, sparking violent clashes that left a 32-year-old woman dead and dozens more injured.

He missed an opportunity to be very explicit here,” said Graham on Fox News Sunday. “These groups seem to believe they have a friend in Donald Trump in the White House. I don’t know why they believe that, but they don’t see me as a friend in the Senate and I would urge the president to dissuade these groups that he’s their friend.”

If I were president of the United States and these people showed sympathy toward me and my agenda, it would bother me, and I would urge the president to dissuade them of the fact that he sympathetic to their cause,” said Graham. “Their cause is hate, it is un-American, they are domestic terrorists and we need more from our president.”

Graham added that he would support the creation of a federal task force to investigate the “size and scope” of racist hate groups and to “report back to Congress to see if we need to do more in terms of suppressing them.”

Stories of sexual assault have resonated throughout Hollywood in the weeks following the revelation of decades of harassment claims made against former super producer Harvey Weinstein.

Monday night at the Elle Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles, Reese Witherspoon added her tale to the mix.

“This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world, for men in a lot of situations and a lot of industries that are forced to remember and relive a lot of ugly truths,” Witherspoon said during her introduction for “Big Little Lies” co-star Laura Dern.

“I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly, and I found it really hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate,” she continued. “A lot of the feelings I’ve been having about anxiety, about being honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier or taking action.”

The star, who won an Oscar for her performance in 2006’s “Walk the Line,” talked about the disgust she felt after being assaulted by a director when she was 16, which she said was not an isolated incident during her storied career.

“I’ve had multiple experiences of harassment and sexual assault, and I don’t speak about them very often. But after hearing all the stories these past few days and hearing these brave women speak up tonight, the things that we’re kind of told to sweep under the rug and not talk about, it’s made me want to speak up and speak up loudly because I felt less alone this week than I’ve ever felt in my entire career,” she shared.

Witherspoon went on to speak directly to the young women in the room, assuring them that the rest of Hollywood had their backs and that moving forward, part of the key to solving the industry’s issues with women, is to make sure that women hold power at every level of the process.

“If we can raise consciousness and really help create change, that’s what’s going to change this industry and change society,” Witherspoon concluded. “So I’m so sad that I have to talk about these issues, but it would be, I would be remiss not to.”

The “Legally Blonde” star is the latest celebrity to share her experience with sexual assault within the industry. And Alyssa Milano’s “Me Too” social media campaign has revealed how widespread the problem is well beyond Hollywood.

Witherspoon’s representatives did not immediately respond to The Times’ request for comment Tuesday morning.

When pressed by the show’s hosts whether he still thought that about Trump, Graham responded: “No, I don’t think he’s a xenophobic, race-baiting, religious bigot – as president.”

During the 2016 campaign, Graham called Trump “a kook,” “crazy” and “unfit for office.” He backed Jeb Bush during the Republican primary and said he ultimately cast his vote for independent Evan McMullin.

In recent weeks, Graham has said he’s come around to Trump and has gotten to know the president better. The two have played golf together at Trump’s private clubs.

Graham has praised Trump’s foreign policy decisions, including the president’s move to arm Ukraine as it fights pro-Russian separatists, his policies toward North Korea and his initial response to protests in Iran.

“I want to help him where I can because there’s a lot on this man’s plate, and we should all want to help him,” Graham said last month on CBS.

Time’s Up on the Golden Globes red carpet — and Eva Longoria and Reese Witherspoon are two of the women who have the microphone.

The actresses led the way during Sunday evening’s event at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, both dressed in black to show their support of the Time’s Up movement. Longoria wore a long-sleeved velvet dress while Witherspoon went for a one-shoulder gown.

The campaign, which launched on New Year’s Day, saw Longoria, Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes and hundreds of other women in entertainment sign an impassioned open letter speaking out against sexual harassment, assault and inequality across all industries.

This is not a moment, it’s a movement,” Longoria, Witherspoon’s date for the evening, said on the red carpet at Sunday’s event. “Tonight is just one small part of that.”

Time’s Up has since raised more than $16 million for a legal defense fund for people who have experienced workplace harassment. Ahead of the Golden Globes, the movement encouraged attendees and viewers alike to wear black as a symbol of solidarity.
