Donald Trump today fired back against Lindsey Graham calling him a “jackass” yesterday by just giving out his cell phone number.
Graham was so offended by Trump’s attacks on John McCain yesterday, he said that Trump needs to quit being a jackass and getting out of the race.
Trump responded by… well, doing what he does:
Trump, in SC, bashes Lindsey Graham. "He's zero in the polls! He's on television all the time."

The Donald Trump show is on btw "…and then I watch this idiot Lindsey Graham…"

And then this happened:
Trump now brandishing a card he says Graham scribbled down his own cell phone number on and gave to him a few years ago.

Trump reading off Lindsey Graham’s telephone number, citing time he called and asked Trump to say his name on Fox & Friends.

The number Trump just read out goes straight to voicemail. It says Lindsey Graham is not available

Politico actually got through to Graham by calling the number. This is what he said:
“I wonder what caused that,” Graham told a POLITICO reporter who dialed the number that Trump read.
“When it comes to the Donald, nothing surprises me anymore,” he said. “It’s just too bad, really,” he said, that Trump is taking away from a discussion on the Iran deal and more substantive policy issues.
And then there was this:

UPDATE- 3:06 pm EST: Graham tweeted afterwards:
Probably getting a new phone. iPhone or Android?
