If you attack Chick-fil-A, you better be careful because Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is willing to die for it. The senator devoted a tweet thread to supporting Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, following a letter written by students at the University of Notre Dame protesting a proposed Chick-fil-A restaurant on the school’s Indiana campus.
Students at the Catholic college expressed “ethical concerns” over the chain’s well-publicized anti-LGBTQ stance and donations to anti-LGBTQ causes.
Graham expressed it was “disappointing to hear some ND students and faculty want to ban Chick-fil-A from doing business on campus because they disagree with the values held by the Chick-fil-A founders.”
I want everyone in South Carolina and across America to know I have Chick-fil-A’s back,” he tweeted. “I hope we don’t have to, but I will go to war for the principles Chick-fil-A stands for. Great food. Great service. Great values. God bless Chick-fil-A!”
Online critics were taken aback yet unsurprised.
Graham, a staunch Trump loyalist, has remained faithful to the former president despite his instigation of a violent uprising on the US Capitol grounds on Jan. 6. Graham has blamed others for the attack, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
His name was trending Wednesday following his comments about the fast-food company.
Today, election fraudster Lindsey Graham said he would go to war to defend Chick-fil-A’s principles, which are bigotry, intolerance, hatred, but when it comes to deadly insurrection, he ignores it because his head is still lodged in the orange ass of the scumbag who incited it.

US Generals had to intervene to prevent Trump from attempting a coup, but don’t worry, @LindseyGrahamSC has Chick-fil-A’s back.

Lindsey Graham vows to “go to war” for Chick-fil-A. He wouldn’t lift a finger to stop a violent insurrection, but he could kill for a chicken sandwich

Lindsey Graham is more incensed about a shitty chicken franchise than an insurrection at the Capitol where his coworkers were targeted.
How is he STILL a Senator?
