In a post on his lone social media account, Donald Trump not only ranted against the recent spending bill approved by a bipartisan Congress, but he called for the 18 Republicans who voted for it to be ousted.
Included in that list of 18 is Trump’s forever butt boy, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Here’s his rant:
Great job Kevin! We must now stop Mitch McConnell and his China flagrant boss, Coco Chow. It’s as though he just doesn’t care anymore, he pushes through anything the Democrats want.
The $1.7 TRILLION quickly approved Bill of the week before was HORRIBLE. Zero for USA Border Security. If he waited just ten days, the now “United Republican Congress” could have made it MUCH BETTER, or KILLED IT.
Something is wrong with McConnell, and those Republican Senators that Vote with him. PRIMARY THEM ALL!!!

And here’s the list of GOP Senators who voted for the bill. Some have already retired, and some were just reelected. So, not sure how effective a call to “primary” those folks will be.
• Roy Blunt (Missouri)
• John Boozman (Arkansas)
• Shelley Capito (West Virginia)
• Susan Collins (Maine)
• John Cornyn (Texas)
• Tom Cottom (Arkansas)
• Lindsey Graham (South Carolina)
• Jim Inhofe (Oklahoma)
• Mitch McConnell (Kentucky)
• Jerry Moran (Kansas)
• Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
• Rob Portman (Ohio)
• Mitt Romney (Utah)
• Mike Rounds (South Dakota)
• Richard Shelby (Alabama)
• John Thune (South Dakota)
• Roger Wicker (Mississippi)
• Todd Young (Indiana)
