Senator Lindsey Graham Skewers Nancy Pelosi With Savage Open Letter
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says there will not be a stop-gap funding bill deal to reopen the government unless it had appropriations to build a wall along the Mexican border.
Pretty Simple: “No Wall Money, No Deal.”
For those of you keeping score, after Lindsey Graham’s body slam of the Democrat Party during the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings – that’s two in a row for the Senator from South Carolina.
Now he’s narrowed it down to roasting Minority Leader and presumed new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi with an open letter that has conservatives and patriots across the nation rethinking their opinions of Senator Graham.
To Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats:
No Wall Money, No Deal.

Congresswoman Pelosi has dug her heels in to satisfy a gaggle of young socialist democrats coming into the House in January, vowing to create a funding bill which does not include any of President Donald Trump’s requirements when she takes her mantle next week as Speaker.
In Hawaii vacationing at a four-diamond resort, (eye-bleach, please) Madame Speaker to-be has stopped dealing with the now two-week government shutdown negotiations, saying she would not hand over any funding toward a border wall and crazily suggesting she would open up the government herself – without the President’s input!
Graham, who has had the President’s back where it concerns building a wall, starkly disagrees: “If I were the president, I would dig in and not give in on additional wall funding — I’d want the whole $5 billion because the caravan is a game changer. He wants $5 billion, and after the caravan, if you don’t see the need for additional border wall security, you’re just not paying much attention.”
The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion for a border wall, however, with a 51-seat majority in the Senate, Republicans fell short of the necessary 60 votes needed to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature.
Highlighting the disingenuousness of politics, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer previously said we have no money for the wall. Democrats suddenly concerned about overspending is pretty laughable. But wait!
Years earlier, Schumer, Pelosi, and Barack Obama all backed the 2006’s Fence Act.
The President has said he’s settled in for “a very long shutdown”
