'They hate my guts': Lindsey Graham is freaking out and sounding desperate

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) required police and security officers to escort him through Reagan National Airport in D.C. Friday, after publicly distancing himself from President Donald Trump during Wednesday's counting of the electoral votes.

Trump's MAGA supporters surrounded him, verbally assaulted, harassed, and accosted him, repeatedly shouted several expletives at the South Carolina Republican, and screamed, "audit our vote" – a conspiracy theory demand sown by Graham and President Donald Trump that led to Wednesday's attempted coup.

Graham, who golfed with Trump on Christmas and New Years Days and recently refused to vote against Trump in the Senate's successful veto override, after the Capitol Hill insurrection told his colleagues, "Trump and I, we've had a hell of a journey."

Verified Twitter user Mindy Robinson posted this video to the social media site, saying she is the one screaming in the video. Her bio reads: "Conservative Activist, Political Commentator, and Host of Red White and F You: Unapologetically Patriotic. Independent Constitutionalist/Patriot Party of NV."

She, or someone in the video, can be heard shouting,:"It's going to be like this forever wherever you go for the rest of your life."

Politico adds:

“One day [you] will not be able to walk down the street. It is today," yelled one woman who wasn't wearing a mask in violation of airport rules. She was wearing a “I love Trump" shirt with the letter “Q" on the back of the shirt, a likely reference to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Graham is called a "traitor," an SOB and a POS, among other things, in the video below.
