Friday night, the mood was decidedly celebratory at a GOP Lincoln Day Dinner fundraiser held at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. Hours before the scheduled dinner, the Mueller report was released to Attorney General William Barr with no new indictments.
Bizpac Review reports,
The President and First Lady attended the fundraiser and Trump spoke briefly, though he did not mention the Mueller report. Among his comments, he marveled at the First Lady’s poll numbers.
President Trump introduced Sen. Lindsey Graham as the keynote speaker in pure Trump-style.
An interesting development over the last several months is the strengthening bond between Trump and Graham.
The 2016 Republican primary campaign found Graham and Trump sparring among the many candidates who were vying for the presidential nomination. At times, it was biting and personal. Graham continued criticizing Trump’s decisions long after he took over the Oval Office.
Now, however, it seems that Graham has become one of the President’s strongest and most outspoken allies on Capitol Hill.
Trump did joke that he was there because of Lindsey. “If Lindsey’s speaking,” he said, “I want to come here for two reasons. Number one, he’s a great speaker. And number two, he’s not going to say anything bad about me.”
During Graham’s speech, he called for an investigation into Clinton and the origins of the infamous and debunked dossier.
He hit a nerve with attendees, as a spirited “lock her up” chant broke out. Reportedly, Trey Gowdy was leading the chant from the head table.
Now that the President has been vindicated there is a growing sentiment on the right that there should be some kind of accountability for the witch hunt that has produced so much waste and created so much divisiveness in the country.
The bias and corruption is never going to stop until someone like HRC is finally held accountable! The longer they get away with their bull💩 the more emboldened they become! Someone has to do the right thing and soon!

Trump also thanked “the legendary Pam Bondi,” Florida’s former attorney general who was honored at the Lincoln Day Dinner. And he marveled at the First Lady’s poll numbers. pic.twitter.com/23a5IQWrhp

Isn’t it often the case that the leftist viewpoint on things is completely incomprehensible? Good example … what is it about this logo that makes it sick and twisted? …
Last night the logo for the GOP fundraiser Trump and Lindsey Graham hosted at Mar-a-Lago was Abraham Lincoln wearing a MAGA hat that said “keep America great.” These people are sick and twisted. Absolutely disgusting. pic.twitter.com/VF68tWxvAR
