Graham said the call surprised him and it came out of nowhere. This will definitely hurt the medias' narrative of the monster living in the White House.
South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham revealed on Wednesday that President Donald Trump called him after his touching tribute to Sen. John McCain on the Senate floor.
Graham told CNN on Wednesday that he received a surprise phone call from the president — who had a tumultuous relationship with McCain — immediately after the speech.
“When [Trump] says something bad about John it pisses me off,” Graham admitted, but added, “He called yesterday after my speech and he couldn’t have been nicer.”
“He said, ‘That was very sad. I just wanted to let you know that you did right by your friend,'” Graham shared. “I said, ‘Thank you, Mr. President.'”
