When former presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham announced on Friday that he had no intention of endorsing Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee quickly responded with an unforgiving tirade.
“While I will unify the party, Lindsey Graham has shown himself to be beyond rehabilitation,” Trump responded in a statement, according to CNN. “And like the voters who rejected him, so will I!”
But Trump was only just getting started.
He pointed out that the South Carolina senator had polled at lower than 1 percent in his own state, whereas Trump had polled at 40 percent and later won the state outright.

“He was a poor representative and an embarrassment to the great people of South Carolina,” the billionaire candidate continued. “Judging by the incompetent way he ran his campaign, it is easy to see why his military strategies have failed so badly — we can’t even beat ISIS!”
Trump reportedly continued his rant later that afternoon while speaking at a campaign event in Omaha, Nebraska.
He noted that after Graham dropped out of the race, he endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who soon after dropped out of the race himself.
“He’s like bad luck,” Trump quipped. “As soon as he endorses the people, they drop out.”
Talk about an epic bad luck charm. Yet Graham had been the one who initiated this feud by claiming that Trump lacks “the temperament and judgment to be commander in chief” and is not “a reliable Republican conservative.”
“I think Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I’m not going with him,” he said.
Which, based on recent history, might have been the best thing that could have happened to The Donald.
