Sen. Lindsey Graham Jokes “My Party Has Gone Batshit Crazy!”

Speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner last night, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham got big laughs for some unexpected remarks.

Saying that Hillary Clinton is about to become president, Graham laid that at the feet of the GOP: “How could that be? My party has gone batshit crazy.”

On the severe dislike that members of the U.S. Senate have for Sen. Ted Cruz: “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you.”

How quickly they turn.

Very effective ad in that it literally uses their own words (Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and Donald Trump) from not long ago.

Homerun.
