South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham feigned tears of hurt, telling Fox News that "the Left is trying to destroy Herschel Walker" so that young men and women of color will never become Republicans.

Yeah, we don't think that's a concern, Lindsey.

Get your hankies out before you click play on that video. Lord.

Sean Hannity ran another Hershel Walker campaign segment (really, these should be listed as in-kind contributions) and brought on Lindsey Graham to be his closer.

"They're trying to destroy Hershel," Graham said. "To deter young men and women of color from being Republican."

(Walker is doing all that by himself.)

"If they destroy Hershel, it will deter people of color from wanting to be a conservative Republican because you just had your life ruined," he said.

Wow. The Walker run-off will determine if another Black person becomes a Republican. Who knew?

Graham claimed Walker would be an inspiration to all Black Americans to become Republicans.

'They have belittled him. They have treated him like crap. His family, (ready the waterworks) stand by Herschel Walker tonight," he said, his face bunched up and sorrow.

Reporting on Walker's past is the job of any credible journalist. If anyone treated Walker's family like crap, it's Hershel. His own son has called him out for cheating on his mother.

Graham seems to forget that Senator Warnock is also a man of color and inspiration.

Senator Warnock never made believe he was an FBI agent, pointed a gun at a woman's head, never lied about his academic record, spewed various fatherhood falsehoods, including allegedly paying for two abortions.

Walker is the most uninspiring and unqualified Senate candidate, regardless of color, I've ever seen.

UPDATE: Ted Cruz also playing along with this foolishness.
