Lindsey Graham: ‘Going Low’ Would Be ‘A Step Up’ for Democrats, They’re in the Gutter After Kavanaugh


Speaking to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham responded to former Attorney General Eric Holder‘s claim that former First Lady Michelle Obama got it wrong.

“Michelle [Obama] always says ‘When they go low, we go high,'” Holder said which campaigning for Democrats in Georgia. “No. No. When they go low, we kick them.

Responding directly to Holder’s remarks, the Republican who became one of the main faces of the pro-Kavanaugh fight said this: “I voted for Sotomayor and Kagan, I can’t imagine I would do to them what they tried to do to Kavanaugh. Keep it up, keep it up Mr. Holder…Keep doing what you’re doing, see how the American people like this. This is the number one issue I think for America in November. Do you agree with what they did to Brett Kavanaugh? Do you believe that what they did was okay? If you believe it is okay, vote Democrat. If you thought it was despicable, vote for us.”

Also while speaking with MacCallum, Graham derided Democrats for their incivility.

“I would say that if you think what happened to Brett Kavanaugh was civil, we have a definite different view of what civil means. Civil means that you do not destroy a good man because you want power,” he said. “You don’t hide the evidence and ambush him, you don’t turn to the Avenattis of the world and allow accusations completely unfounded. You tell Dr. Ford, we would go to California. So, Michelle Obama said when they go low, we go high. Here’s my view of the Democratic party regarding Kavanaugh. Going low is a step up for you. You are in the gutter in terms of the Democratic Party’s approach.”
