Lindsey Graham Jokes DNA Test Will Reveal He’s Iranian: ‘That Would Be, Like, Terrible’

A day after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released a DNA test to tamp down debate over her heritage, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) vowed to take a test of his own, joking that he was concerned about the potential results.

“I’ll probably be Iranian. That would be like terrible,” he said during a Fox & Friends appearance Tuesday morning.

As the show’s co-hosts laughed along with Graham at the racist remark, Brian Kilmeade jumped in to add, “They’re great people. Just bad leaders.”

“Yeah, bad leaders,” Graham replied. “I’m not in the ayatollah branch.”

Graham is being welcomed back to the program within the coming weeks to reveal the results of his test, which he claims may indicate he has more Native American background than Warrren.

“I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian,” he said. “It may all be just talk, but you’re going to find out in couple weeks because I’m going to take this test.”
