Sen. Lindsey Graham hilariously mocked the first night of the Democratic Debates Wednesday evening; calling the entire event an insult to “boring people.”
“Mr. President, I respectfully disagree. To associate this crowd with BORING is an unfair attack on BORING people. BORING would be a step up!” posted Graham on social media.

The Commander-in-Chief posted his one-word summary of the debates on social media halfway through the evening.

“Ten Democrats railed against a national economy and a Republican administration they argued exist only for the rich as presidential candidates debated onstage for the first time in the young 2020 season, embracing inequality as a defining theme in their fight to deny President Donald Trump a second term in office,” reports the Associated Press.
The candidates called for free-college, the cancellation of student debt, “decriminalizing” illegal border crossings, and more during the two-hour debate.
Immigration was the most discussed topic of the evening.
Senator Elizabeth Warren toured the Homestead Immigration Detention Center in Florida before the debate, where she complained about a lack of emergency border funding; ironically missing a pivotal vote on…emergency border funding.
“There are a lot of different ways that we get in the fight. And one of them is that you show up. I’m at the Homestead detention center today and I hope you’ll be watching,” posted Warren on social media.

Instead of making it to the Senate vote on emergency border funding at 2pm, Elizabeth Warren is holding a photo op outside the Homestead Detention Center in Florida to talk about…

“Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren missed Wednesday’s border-funding vote because she was outside Homestead migrant detention facility in Florida, complaining about the crisis at the border,” reports the Daily Caller.
Warren toured the Homestead Immigration Detention Center in Florida Wednesday; calling the facility a “stain on our country” while failing to mention the complex was opened by former President Obama in 2015.
GRAHAM SLAM: Lindsey Graham BLASTS Bernie’s Proposal to Allow Mass Shooters to Vote from Prison
Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders Tuesday after the potential presidential candidate claimed the Boston Marathon bomber and others should have the “right to vote” from prison.
“Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse….@BernieSanders supports allowing rapists, murderers, and terrorists – like the Boston bomber and Dylan Roof, the individual who massacred 9 church-goers in Charleston, to vote from prison,” posted Graham on social media.
“I look forward to hearing his explanation — in South Carolina — why Dylan Roof should be allowed to vote in the upcoming elections,” he added.

GRAHAM SLAM: Lindsey Graham BLASTS Ocasio-Cortez, Urges her to Visit Holocaust Museum
Sen. Lindsey Graham didn’t hold back Monday while addressing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments that compared the ‘migrant caravan’ to ‘Jewish families’ fleeing World War II; saying the future congresswoman should visit the Holocaust museum to discover the difference.
“I recommend she take a tour of the Holocaust Museum in DC. Might help her better understand the differences between the Holocaust and the caravan in Tijuana,” he tweeted.

Cortez’ found herself in hot-water this week after she made the stunning comparison; saying “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.”
