U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham hasn’t exactly had a warm relationship with Donald Trump ever since the Manhattan real estate tycoon took up his most recent hobby as President of the United States. But he’s come around. Graham’s got to work with the guy in Congress and votes for most of the president’s campaign promises have hinged on a few key votes, so they both have an interest to work together these days.

With Trump retweeting anti-Islamic videos, playing nice with alt-right conspiracy theorists, and generally walking through the world with impunity, there’s a lot to crow about these days when it comes to 1600 Pennsylvania.

But Sen. Graham won’t have any of it. On CNN today, Graham cried out for the media to stop its “endless attempt to label the guy as some kind of kook unfit to be president.” And that’s a fine thing to say, unless, hypothetically he labeled the guy a kook a year ago or something and said he was unfit to be president.
