The world continues to watch as the situation in Ukraine goes from bad to worse.
While the world watches, politicians here in the U.S. publicly fight over how best to handle the crisis.
And Lindsey Graham made one jaw-dropping statement that proves he only cares about being famous.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham proved once again that his image is all that matters to him.
He openly called for someone within Russia to assassinate Vladimir Putin.
Graham tweeted the remarks, then went on television and doubled down:
“How does this end? Somebody in Russia has to step up to the plate. Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military? The only way this ends, my friend, is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out. You would be doing your country a great service, and the world a great service.”

It’s incredibly irresponsible for a U.S. Senator to call for the assassination of a world leader.
Putin is a dictatorial thug, no doubt, but he is still the head of state of a country with 6,000 nukes.
If Putin feels as if he has no way out, he could do the unthinkable and fire off nukes.
Graham is playing a dangerous game with everyone’s lives and it’s for his gain.
Escalating tensions with Russia not only endangers innocent civilians, but it could endanger all countries because of Russia’s nuclear capabilities.
Also, many countries have economic ties to Russia, the United States included.
The idea that a country the size of Russia could be expelled from the world stage and treated as a rogue state like North Korea is not realistic.
Comments like the one Lindsey Graham made only serve to increase tensions between Russia and the U.S.
But like so many other elected officials, Graham is just looking for his time in the spotlight, and when you make outrageous statements like the one he did, the spotlight is what you’ll get.
