‘Get Him Out of Here’: Lindsey Graham Kicks Out Attendee of Combative Town Hall

During a town hall in South Carolina today that was filled with a mostly combative audience, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) lost his cool with one attendee and ordered him removed from the auditorium.

Speaking about health insurance premiums and Obamacare, Graham stopped to address a person near the stage who was interrupting him.

“I’ll tell you what. you’re going to get kicked out in about 30 seconds if you don’t shut up,” Graham told the man.

“Because I’m telling the truth,” the attendee shouted back.

“No,” Graham answered. “Because you’re rude! Because you’re rude!”

After asking the audience if he should “kick this guy out,” Graham eventually said to “get him out of here” before continuing to talk about health care to the boisterous and contentious crowd.

Elsewhere in the town hall, Graham addressed the recent tweetstorm by President Donald Trump in which POTUS accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones prior to the election.
