For most conservatives, Psaki calling Yates as an “American hero” would be bad enough.
Yates is the former acting attorney general who endeared herself to liberals by getting fired by then-President Trump in January of 2017 over her theatrical refusal to enforce Trump’s ban on travelers from countries linked to international terrorism.
But Psaki also took the occasion to use the hashtag “#LadyG,” which is apparently snide liberal shorthand for rumors that the South Carolina conservative is secretly gay. (It comes from a June 2020 “Perspective” piece published by The Washington Post.)
For the record, Graham has denied it. “To the extent it matters, I’m not gay,” he told a TMZ interviewer in 2018.
