Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) haphazardly and baselessly griped to Fox News anchor Sean Hannity on Monday night that Democrats are incapable of winning elections unless they “cheat” — a rich assertion amid President Trump’s refusal to concede his loss to President-elect Joe Biden as Trump continues waging bogus claims of election fraud.

While saying that “media polling is a joke,” Graham complained about conservatives supposedly being censored by social media platforms, before baselessly suggesting that Democrats can’t win without “cheating” Republicans.

“The state of play in America in 2020 for Republicans is not good,” Graham said. “We need to fight back. We win because of our ideas and we lose elections because [Democrats] cheat us.”

After waging more bogus claims by appearing to reference complaints by partisan poll watchers at the Pennsylvania Convention Center who argued that they were kept too far away from observing ballot counting — which the Trump campaign has launched lawsuits against as the President refuses to accept reality — Graham went on to hammer into his unfounded claim attacking Democrats.

Graham said that Democrats “could give a damn” about election law and “don’t care how Trump lost as long as he lost.”

“They’re not gonna ask any questions in the media,” Graham said. “I’ve had a microphone in my face all day. ‘When is Trump gonna concede?’ I said, ‘When are you gonna ask a question about the 2020 election? When you are you gonna take the idea seriously that every vote counts?’ You want an outcome.”

“You know, they can all go to hell as far as I’m concerned,” Graham added. “I’ve had it with these people.”
