WASHINGTON D.C. — (08-08-22) — Self hating closet queen Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says that gay marriage should be decided by the states. “If you’re going to ask me to have the federal government take over defining marriage, I’m going to say no,” said Graham on Sunday during his appearance on CNN’ State of The Union with Dana Bash.
Graham said he wants states to decide the issue of whether two adults of the same-sex have the right to get married. When Bash asked the closet queen Senator if he would support legislation codifying same sex marriage, Graham claimed that it was a state issue!
During the show, Bash said…“Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) is trying to get enough votes to codify same-sex marriage because Justice Clarence Thomas suggested it might be in jeopardy,” said Bash. “You said two weeks ago that the state-by-state approach is the best way to go. I want to be clear about your position. Are you saying the 2015 Supreme Court decision that made same-sex marriage the law of the land nationally should be overturned?” asked Bash of Graham.
“No,” Graham replied, adding, “I don’t think it’s going to be overturned… That’d be up to the court.”
Graham went further by boldly saying during an election year that the Supreme Court should not have waded into the issue at all.
“I’ve been consistent. I think states should decide the issue of marriage, and states should decide the issue of abortion,” Graham said. “I have respect for South Carolina. South Carolina voters I trust to define marriage and deal with the issue of abortion. Not nine people on the court. That’s my view.”

Bash next asked Graham if the court should also overturn Loving v. Virginia, which protects interracial marriage. “How many more issues should that go to? For example, Loving v. Virginia, that allowed interracial marriage, that shouldn’t be touched?”
“No, here’s the point. We’re talking about things that don’t happen because you don’t want to talk about inflation, you don’t want to talk about crime,” Graham accused. “This is all politics, my friends. Instead of trying to solve problems, we’re talking about constitutional decisions that are still in effect. But if you’re going to ask me to have the federal government take over defining marriage, I’m going to say no.” said Graham.
In this reporter’s opinion, the Republican party are doing everything they can NOT to win in November. Their fundraising is in the toilet and they’ve barely released any political ads nationally, regional or in local districts. In fact we’ve barely seen any GOP super pac’s releasing political ads over the past month, and that includes right wing media outlets.
