It’ll Take Weeks For Lindsey Graham To Wash All The Egg Off His Face After This Tom Cotton Burn

Senator Tom Cotton hit back at Senator Lindsey Graham after the South Carolina lawmaker called him the “Steve King” of the Senate Friday.

Graham’s likening of Cotton to Congressmen Steve King references the Arkansas senator’s hawkish immigration stance and opposition to a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. King has been a stalwart opponent of these positions in the House of Representatives for years. Graham conversely has long been a champion of a softer view towards illegal immigrants.

Cotton referenced Graham’s ill fated presidential candidacy in 2016 where he dropped out in December 2015 after months of failing to garner even 1% popularity in opinion polls. The South Carolina senator admitted in a recent interview that he was “beaten like a drum” by President Donald Trump in the campaign.
