• Lindsey Graham Calls Trump A ‘Jackass,’ So Trump Does THIS In Return

    This presidential race is definitely starting to get messy.

    Trump hit the campaign trail in South Carolina, and read out loud the personal phone number of the state’s senior senator Lindsey Graham.

    Graham said  Tuesday that he didn’t care if Trump dropped out of the race, but thought he should stop “being a jackass.”

    Later in the day during a South Carolina campaign event, Trump held up a yellow piece of paper with Graham’s personal phone number and read out the digits.

    “Give it a shot,” Trump said. “Your local politician, you know? He won’t fix anything but at least he’ll talk to you.”

    Trump said Graham gave him the number a few years ago when he called to ask for a campaign donation. He said Graham also wanted a good reference for Fox News.

    This hot on the heels of controversial comments the former reality TV host made about Sen. John McCain, one of Graham’s closest friends and political allies.

    Graham’s spokeswoman Brittany Bramell confirmed to Bloomberg it was the senator’s phone number.

    “Donald Trump continues to show hourly that he is ill-prepared to be commander in chief,” Graham campaign manager Christian Ferry said in an e-mailed statement to Bloomberg. “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.”

    An attack from Trump could provide a boost for Graham who has languished toward the bottom of most polls.

    Trump has surged to the top spot in recent national polls. This brouhaha is a continuation of his volatile and unpredictable campaign style.
