“.@GrahamBlog: the most dishonest woman is about to be president. How can that be? My party has gone bat shit crazy #wpcfdinner”
Sen Graham at the #WPCFDinner: "If you kill Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial is at the Senate, no one will convict you."

Remarks like these are why Graham is a favorite of the Washington press corps, but not Republican presidential primary voters.
UPDATE: Graham’s Communications Director Kevin Bishop defended his boss on Twitter.

“It was a joke said at a roast. This should give you some idea.”
Bishop included a link to a tweet with a photo of Graham at the dinner donning a Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ hat with the caption, “.@LindseyGrahamSC says he has presidential curse, dons “Make America Great” hat and endorses @realDonaldTrump”
