If Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was counting on the support of female voters in the Palmetto State to help him win reelection to the U.S. Senate, remarks he made Saturday may well have shot those chances to hell.

During a campaign stop in Conway, South Carolina, Graham was patting himself on the back for helping get Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to the Supreme Court:

“You know what I like about Judge Barrett? She’s got everything. She’s just not wicked smart, she’s incredibly good. She embraces her faith.

“I want every young woman to know that that there’s a place for you in America if you’re pro-life, if you embrace your religion and you follow traditional family structure, that you can go anywhere, young lady.”

So if an American woman is pro-choice, agnostic, and isn’t married or a mother, she won’t be able to succeed? It certainly sounds like that’s what Graham was suggesting with his comments.

Also, what about single mothers? Or single fathers? Clearly, Graham is trying to exclude millions of people from their share of the American dream. He’s also seems to be laying down a marker which would make it impossible for a woman who doesn’t meet his criteria to ever serve on the highest court in the land. Is that the sort of bigoted BS we want to teach our daughters and sons?

Oh, and let’s not forget that Sen. Graham is 65 years old, has never been married, never been engaged, and has no children. Applying his own bigoted standard, does he really belong in the Senate?

Twitter lit up with scorn aimed directly at Lindsey:
