Lindsey Graham ‘jokes’ about killing Ted Cruz on Senate floor

Graham-killCruzIt seems that liberal Democrats aren’t the only ones infected with insane hatred for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.  While speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner, Sen. Lindsey Graham, allegedly a Republican from South Carolina, cracked a “joke” about killing Cruz on the floor of the Senate after calling his own party “bats**t crazy.”

“A good Republican would defend Ted Cruz after tonight,” he said. “That ain’t happening,” he added to laughter.

“If you kill Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you,” he said, prompting even more laughter.

Graham also went after other candidates:

Graham ended his comments by calling himself the “Dr. [Jack] Kevorkian of the Republican Party.”  After his own failed run for the White House, he endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who also dropped out.

He donned a Trump campaign hat and said: “I endorse Donald Trump and hope the Graham magic still exists!”
