If ever there were a moment for Republicans to jump off the Trump train, now would be as good of a time, according to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Graham wants fellow Republicans who have endorsed Donald Trump to take it all back in the wake of his repeated claims that Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s heritage make him unfit to preside over lawsuits against him.
“This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” Graham told The New York Times. “If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it,” he added. “There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary.”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough sounded a similar note on “Morning Joe” earlier Tuesday, remarking that senators running for re-election could be forced to reevaluate their stated support of Trump as the party’s nominee if he continues to make comments like the ones about Curiel.
