Whoops he did it again! Donald Trump has decided to go to war with Sen. Lindsey Graham, after Graham objected to Trump’s statement that former prisoner of war and now Senator John McCain was not a war hero because he was captured. Sen. Graham called Trump another word for donkey, and Trump threw down the gauntlet.
As reported earlier this month in the Inquisitr, Trump began alienating large groups with jabs at Mexicans, which got him dumped by Macy’s. Now he seems to have narrowed his scope and is feuding with presidential hopeful Sen. Lindsey Graham.
"In Exchange of Fire, Donald Trump Has Lindsey Graham’s Number" by MAGGIE HABERMAN via NYT http://t.co/TJJ9n6EDGS— Ambrose Gier (@AmbroseGier) July 21, 2015
ABC News is reporting that in a speech today in South Carolina, Donald Trump retaliated by sharing Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number into the microphone.
“[Graham] said, ‘Can you mention my name?’ I say, ‘Yes I will.’ And he gave me his number,” Trump said. “And I found the card. I wrote the number down. I don’t know if it’s the right number. Let’s try it.”
He then read the number confirmed to belong to Graham and added yet another barb.
“I don’t know — it’s three or four years ago — maybe it’s an old number,” Trump continued. “Your local politician: He won’t fix anything, but he’ll still talk to you.”
The Huffington Post reports that Trump sees his behavior towards Graham as “being nice.”
“I watched this idiot Lindsey Graham on television today and he calls me a jacka**!” Trump remarked.
“I’m trying to be nice, I’m working hard to be nice,” he added, before calling Graham a “total lightweight.”
“I have some guy that is hitting me, like, hard,” he continued. “The reason they’re hitting me is when you register zero in the polls, what the hell, you have nothing to lose.”
Lindsey Graham’s campaign manager, Christian Ferry, shrugs off Trumps behavior, commenting to the Huffington Post that Trump is showing that he is ill-prepared to be commander-in-chief.
“The two people most excited about Donald Trump’s candidacy are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Because of Trump’s bombastic and ridiculous campaign, we aren’t talking about Obama’s horrible deal with Iran or Hillary Clinton’s plans to continue Obama’s failed national security agenda,” he added.
Sen. Lindsey Graham responded to Trump’s disclosure with a cheeky tweet.
Probably getting a new phone. iPhone or Android?— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) July 21, 2015
Do you think it was a low blow for Donald Trump to give out Graham’s phone number?
