Lindsey Graham Roasts GOP Candidates: ‘My Party Has Gone Bat**** Crazy’


Speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner Thursday night, South Carolina Senator and former Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham riffed on the candidates still left in the race.

“Look how far you’ve come, the most dishonest person in America is a woman, who’s about to be president,” he joked. “How can that be? My party has gone batshit crazy!”

“If you kill Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you,” Graham joked at one point.

At another: “I know exactly when Ted is going to drop out of the race: March 12. That’s Canadian week at Myrtle Beach.”

Other candidates received jabs from Graham as well. “To the women who left the kitchen tonight to come, thank you very much. John Kasich needs your help.”

“The nice guy is Ben Carson,” he continued. “He tried to kill his cousin, hit his mother in the head with a hammer. He’s the one we all like. How did I lose to these guys?”

On Marco Rubio: “I’m not saying he would change his positions, but he would change his positions. The Secret Service’s main job if he’s president is to keep him hydrated.”

Graham actually ended the night on a serious note. “I don’t know how I can best describe Donald Trump but I can say this; I don’t think he understands what makes America great. I know I’m supposed to be funny. I’m not really happy about where the country is right now.”
