COLUMBIA, South Carolina (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) –  Republican Senator Lindsey Graham today officially endorsed Hillary Clinton to be the next president of the United States.

The former presidential candidate from South Carolina surprised both Democrats and Republicans with his announcement as he made a scathing criticism of GOP frontrunners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, as well as Democrat Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s main rival for the Democratic nomination.

Graham compared the choice between Trump and Cruz “like  being shot or poisoned.” He added, “It scares the hell out of me. Donald Trump, I think, is the most unprepared person I’ve ever met to be commander in chief, and when it comes to Sen. Cruz, he’s exhibited behavior in his time in the Senate that make it impossible for me to believe that he could bring this country together.”

At the same time, Graham called Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, a self-identified socialist, “by far the most liberal person to ever offer themselves as a candidate in a serious fashion for president of the United States.” In Bernie’s world, the big banks are out to get you and rich people are screwing the system so you don’t have a chance,” Graham said.

When Graham suspended his presidential campaign, he endorsed former Florida Governor Jeb Bush who now has also quit the race.

With Clinton being the only other remaining presidential candidate Graham did not mention or criticize, it goes without saying that he is endorsing her.

It’s “crossing the aisle” in Washington, Graham style!
