Graham Breaks With Trump, Defends Dr. Fauci After White House Smears: ‘One Of The Smartest People I Know’




Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) came out in defense of the nation’s top infectious disease expert after President Donald Trump and the White House launched a public campaign to smear and discredit him.

At a press event on Tuesday, Graham was asked about the recent attempts to smear Dr. Anthony Fauci’s reputation.


Graham praised Fauci as “one of the smartest people I know.”

“Has he been right all the time? No,” Graham said. “We don’t have a Dr. Fauci problem. We need to be focusing on doing things to get us where we need to go. So, I have all the respect in the world for Dr. Fauci.”




Graham added: “I think any effort to undermine him is not going to be productive, quite frankly.”
