Donald Trump Gives Out Lindsey Graham’s Cell Phone Number During Televised Rally

Donald Trump gave out Lindsey Graham’s personal cell phone number during a live televised campaign rally that aired on CNN and other networks, amid an ongoing feud with the senator of South Carolina.

“What a stiff!” Trump said of Graham on Tuesday in Bluffton, S.C.

“He doesn’t seem like a very bright guy,” Trump said. “He actually probably seems to me not as bright as Rick Perry. I think Rick Perry probably is smarter than Lindsey Graham.”

Trump then read a phone number aloud he claimed belonged to Graham.

“So, I don’t know, give it a shot,” he said, encouraging the crowd to call the number. “Your local politician; he won’t fix anything, but at least he’ll talk to you.”

Calls to the number go directly to voicemail, which has a recording of a woman’s voice stating the number belongs to Graham. Graham’s spokeswoman Brittany Bramell confirmed to Bloomberg that it was indeed the senator’s real number.

Graham said Tuesday on “CBS This Morning” that Trump should “stop being a jacka–,” referring to comments the presidential contender made about Senator John McCain on Saturday. “I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump said of McCain, a former naval pilot who was held as a prisoner of war in Vietnam for almost six years.

      Oh..he’ll get something done, alright. The question is..who’s willing to suffer the consequences of any such decisions? I wouldn’t. Ego driven and ego maniacal are concepts that are not dissimilar. TURNING OFF YOUR CAPS WOULD BE A PRETTY GOOD IDEA..YOU KNOW?

    Trump is an ego-driven ass, but I’d still take him over “tell-’em-anything-they-want-to-hear” Clinton. The best person out there to lead the US is the smartest person in the entire field, Ben Carson.

  4. Carl says:

    You know, I thought about voting for Trump because he does speak the truth, but now, he just seems like a total dick, and his ego is just too fragile. Any foreign leader that insults him would be facing war from the U.S. If he acted presidential, instead of like a spoiled little child that can’t take the slightest insult, he wouldn’t be such a joke right now.

  5. Jimmy Green says:

    Unfortunately, Trump is too invested in the stock market to help the average American.

  6. Stanley O says:

    Gotta say, Trump won’t back down to anyone. It’s refreshing for someone to blast the media and politicians finally, no prisoners.

    • David Benjamin says:’s ok to be a pseudo – intellectual jackass and a pompous twit??? Yeah..that’s who you guys need. You had 8 years of Dubya, so why the hell not, right?
