Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tried to have it both ways on Monday while addressing Donald Trump’s racist comments about four Democratic lawmakers who the president thinks should go back where they came from, with the GOP senator chiding the president to “aim higher” then calling his targets ‘communists.


Appearing on Trump-friendly Fox News, Graham stated, “We all know that AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)] and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country, they’re calling the guards along our border concentration camp guards… they’re anti-Semitic, they’re anti-America.”

Twitter commenters were quick to point out that there appears nothing Trump can do that Graham — once a Trump critic — won’t defend.
