• Lindsey Graham on Trump: America Won’t Elect ‘Birther’ President

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) argues that Trump is not a realistic general election contender and says the number one reason Donald Trump will never be president of the United States is that Americans don’t want a “birther” in the White House.

    Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg asked Graham if he believes Trump will win the Republican nomination.

    “No,” Graham replied,  “because if he did, that would be the end of our chances.”

    “I don’t think you’re going to elect a man the president of the United States who’s a birther,” he asserted, reminding voters that Trump allegedly spent thousands of dollars in 2011 sending investigators to Hawaii to prove President Barack Obama was born in Kenya.

    Graham, who will not make it onto the main Fox News debate stage next Thursday night, said he just doesn’t think the billionaire mogul is “marketable.”

    “I don’t think we are going to elect a man the President of the United States who basically said most illegal immigrants are drug dealers and rapists, who slandered veterans like Senator McCain, I don’t think he is marketable,” he continued.

    “You’re about to hire somebody that everyone else is firing,” he added. “If that happens the GOP will lose in 2016.”

    The South Carolina Senator is averaging zero percent in the latest Quinnipiac University national Republican presidential polls.
