Donald Trump is not gaining many fans among the public at large, and now, Sen. Lindsey Graham, a fellow Republican, is calling him out. According to Politico, Graham thinks that real estate mogul Trump is a “jacka**,” and his comments about Sen. John McCain were the beginning of the end of his candidacy.
As previously reported in the Inquisitr, Trump has previously been dumped by his long time partner, Macy’s, and also by Serta.
“Donald Trump does not reflect ‘the magic of Macy’s.’ Macy’s says it has a strong obligation to be ‘socially responsible’ and that ‘actions speak louder than words.’ Indeed. It’s time to act.”
Lindsey Graham: Donald Trump is a ‘jackass’ http://t.co/QFbDjQ86DJ— POLITICO (@politico) July 20, 2015
Sen. Lindsey Graham was reacting to Donald Trump criticizing Sen. John McCain in reference to his service record and prisoner of war in Vietnam on CNN’s “Out Front.“
“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
According to CBS News, Sen. Graham has “had it” with Trump.
Lindsey Graham believes that Trump is turning the primary season into a circus.
“I don’t care if he drops out. Stay in the race, just stop being a jacka**,” Graham said Tuesday on CBS This Morning.
“I’m looking for him to be a responsible member of the 16-person primary and stop saying stuff like this,” Graham said. “The world is falling apart. We’re becoming Greece. The Ayatollah’s on the verge of having a nuclear weapon, and you’re slandering everybody and anybody to stay in the news. You know, run for president, but don’t be the world’s biggest jacka**.”
But instead of taking Graham’s advice to heart, Donald Trump has decided to battle Graham head on by giving out the senator’s personal cell phone number to the public, according to Politico. He now says the “Graham is a lightweight and an idiot.”
“He doesn’t seem like a very bright guy. He actually probably seems to me not as bright as Rick Perry. I think Rick Perry probably is smarter than Lindsey Graham,” Trump added, riffing on prior insults he had lobbed at the former Texas governor.
In response to the deluge of phone calls, Sen. Lindsey Graham told Politico, “I wondered what call this!”
It seems that Donald Trump versus the rest of the Republican field has only just started.
Do you think Lindsey Graham was right to call Donald Trump a “jacka**”?
