Lindsey Graham, you're on your own

There have been few high-profile Republican politicians more publicly and slavishly devoted to President Trump over the last few years than Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

Apparently that near-total fealty hasn't been enough for Graham to earn a little loyalty in return.The Trumpiest corners of the conservative ecosphere have made it plain in recent weeks that they're ready to abandon Grah...

For us to think that journalism, fact-checking, and appeals to rationality will win this war on truth is itself irrational; we now know better....
