Mr. 'NeverTrump' Lindsey Graham Tells Donors To Support Trump

That NeverTrump thing sure didn't last long.

Apparently Lindsey Graham has reconsidered and decided that with enough Billionaire Bux, Hair Drumpf might be able to win something somewhere against someone other than Lucifer. Either that, or it's just revenge for those billionaires' epic failure to jump on the Graham train back in the early primary days.

Lucifer or not, Graham spent some time with wealthy Florida donors telling them they ought to back the Tangerine Nightmare.

Graham urged GOP donors at a private fundraiser Saturday in Florida to unite behind Trump's campaign and stressed the importance of keeping likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from the White House. The fundraiser was hosted by former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal Al Hoffman, a former Republican National Committee finance chairman who also co-chaired Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential bid.

"He did say that we need to get behind him," Teresa Dailey, a prominent Florida Republican fundraiser who attended the private event, told CNN on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Republican fundraising powerhouse Fred Malek told CNN Trump should plan on "writing a $500 million check" before expecting any money boys to climb on board with him.

If Trump released his tax returns, I'm fairly certain we'd all know he was the man behind the curtain and little more.

What's in it for Lindsey Graham? Who knows. Maybe the long arms of the fascist brownshirts are making threats which he must heed.
