Billionaire Donald Trump upped the ante on Tuesday in his ongoing feud with Lindsey Graham, reading the senator’s private cell phone number to a crowd in his home state of South Carolina – and urging them to call it to complain directly to him.
The two presidential candidates have been driving media coverage with a tit-for-tat series of insults. On Tuesday, Trump called Graham an ‘idiot.’
Hours earlier, Graham told the CBS ‘This Morning’ audience that Trump should ‘stay in the race’ if he wants to, but ‘just stop being a jackass.’
Trump gave out the phone number duing a televised speech, and urged South Carolinians gathered at the Sun City retirement communtiy near Myrtle Beach to call their senior senator.
‘Give it a shot,’ Trump said, reading off the number, which began with Washington, D.C.’s 202 area code.
He also questioned Graham’s intelligence, saying that ‘he doesn’t seem like a very bright guy.’
‘I think Rick Perry is probably smarter than Lindsey Graham. But what do I know? He’s got the glasses.’
Trump was mocking Perry’s new look – he began wearing eyeglasses last year – and playing on a stereotpye Perry reinfocred in a 2011 debate when he ouldn’t recall which three federal agencies he had said he would shut down as president.
Graham, Trump jabbed, ‘actually seems to me not as bright, obviously, as Rick Perry. I think Rick Perry probably is smarter than Lindsey Graham.’
‘What a stiff!’ he boomed. ‘What a stiff, Lindsey Graham. By the way he has registered zero in the polls. A total lightweight. In the private sector, he couldn’t get a job.’
Trump produced a piece of paper on which he said Graham’s cell phone number was written, after asking aloud: ‘Didn’t this guy call me four years ago? Yes, he called me three or four years ago, Lindsey Graham, I didn’t even know who he was.’
