Susan Rice crossed the line and went straight to the gutter in a new and shocking attack on Lindsey Graham.
The topic was Trump and Benghazi and Rice apparently did not like Lindsey holding the Obama administration to account for their foreign policy blunders.
Look, Lindsey is holding Trump to what he considers a mistake in Syria so Rice’s complaint falls flat.
“You have to understand Benghazi to understand Trump,” said Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security under Obama.
“Right, because Lindsey Graham isn’t just a piece of shit now,” Tommy Vietor, another Obama staffer added.
“He’s been a piece of shit,” Rice said. I said it, I said it dammit, finally.” “He’s a piece of shit.”
From The Week: Rice, who served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013 and was former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser from 2013 to 2017, sat down with two other Obama officials — Ben Rhodes and Tommy Vietor — for their podcast, Pod Save the World.
In a clip released Tuesday afternoon, Rhodes says in order to understand President Trump, “you have to understand Benghazi,” referring to the 2012 attack in Libya, which left four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, dead.
Vietor responded, “Right, because Lindsey Graham isn’t just a piece of s–t now,” and was quickly interrupted by Rice. “He’s been a piece of s–t,” she said with a laugh. “I said it. I said it, damn it, finally.
He’s a piece of s–t.” Vietor added that Graham was “lying, lying, lying” about the attack, and “raising money off of the death of four Americans.”
Rice and Graham went toe to toe in the wake of the Benghazi attack, as Republicans accused Rice of intentionally misleading the public, with Graham among the loudest voices.
