U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene. R-Ga., was channeling her inner Don Corleone during an appearance this week on Steve Bannon’s podcast as she explained why former President Donald Trump plays golf with Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Suffice it to say, Graham is not seen as a true ally by Greene or Bannon, who called the Republican senator from South Carolina “the leader of DACA, open borders, the most pro-illegal alien guy” in DC.
“Open border America and wars all over the world, that’s Lindsey Graham and he’ll spend all your money to do it,” Greene said. “And the other thing is he never stands in the way of the radical Democrat agenda — the communist agenda for America. Never stops it. In fact, he stands there, smiles at you, tells you some garbage on TV and pretends like he’s tough, and goes down and plays golf with my favorite president.”
“President Trump went to the RNC donors in Nashville and he said the old Republican Party is dead and it’s not coming back,” Bannon said. “Lindsey Graham is the manifestation of the old Republican Party, correct?”
While Greene was in full agreement with Bannon’s assessment, she felt compelled to defend the fact that Trump would play golf with a person like Graham, borrowing a page from “The Godfather” film to explain why.
“One hundred percent, but I want to defend President Trump here for a minute, he’s a lot smarter than people give him credit [for]. So sometimes you keep your biggest enemies, or should we say America’s biggest traitors close by.”
Graham is known to plug his golf outings with the former president on Twitter, which may or may not build his MAGA credit:
President Trump claims he plays golf fast. Not only is that true, it is a tremendous understatement.
I can also attest to the fact that a lot of business is done on the course. https://t.co/OSy2V5RunF

Really enjoyed playing golf with President @realDonaldTrump, @RandPaul and @sendavidperdue.
Reminded President Trump how dumb it was for President Obama to ignore sound military advice by pulling out of Iraq, creating ISIS. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/rvQbwOF4Gl
