Lindsey Graham becomes instant Democrat hero after he slams GOP for going too easy on Trump

Senator Lindsey Graham sounded off on President-elect Donald Trump’s criticism of the intelligence community, calling his recent comments not “helpful.”

“I don’t think it is helpful for the Commander-in-Chief to question the competency, loyalty of those who are risking their lives to defend the nation, and the last thing I would say about anybody working in the American intelligence community is to compare them to Nazi Germany,” The South Carolina Republican told reporters Friday.

Trump blasted intelligence agencies in a tweet on Wednesday following the leak of a report later published by BuzzFeed that alleged compromising information about the president-elect.

Graham proceeded to take a thinly-veiled jab at his fellow Republican lawmakers.

“I can only imagine,” Graham continued, “what we would have said if a Democrat said that.”

The Republican senator apparently inspired many Democrats who cheered his remarks on Twitter where users issued a collective round of applause.
