Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham has thrown dynamite onto the feud between President Donald Trump and a group of Democratic congresswomen – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning, Graham called the group “a bunch of communists” who he said “hate Israel” and “hate our own country,” further calling them “anti-Semitic” and “anti-America.”
“We all know AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” Graham said, using a nickname for Ocasio-Cortez. “They hate Israel, they hate our own country. Calling guards along our border, calling Border Patrol agents concentration-camp guards. They accuse people who support Israel of ‘doing it for the Benjamins.’ They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.”
When the host Brian Kilmeade asked Graham whether he thought Trump “went too far” with his tweets, Graham still avoided criticizing the president and encouraged him to “aim higher,” saying, “They are American citizens, they won an election, take on their policies.”
