White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders praised Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s tirade against Democratic lawmakers during the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

“@LindseyGrahamSC has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined,” Sanders tweeted. “God bless him.”

“What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that. Not me,” Graham said angrily pointing toward Democrats.

He told Kavanaugh, “when you see Sotomayor and Kagan, tell them that Lindsey said hello, because I voted for them. I would never do to them what you’ve done to this guy. This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics. And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy.”

“I cannot imagine what you and your family have gone through,” Graham continued. “This is going to destroy the ability of good people to come forward because of this crap.”
