Senator Lindsey Graham’s campaign has struggled to gain traction amidst a crowded Republican presidential contender field.
He’s known for his personal challenges to Donald Trump. Graham has said: “Come to South Carolina and I’ll beat his (Trump’s) brains out.” Trump leads polls of Republicans in South Carolina.
Now, he has spoken out against Dr. Ben Carson, who is currently at second place among Republican voters in polls.
Graham, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, was asked about Carson’s strong showing in the polls by Eugene Robinson, one of the show’s co-hosts.
Graham responded that Carson doesn’t have a “clue about what’s going on in the Middle East.” His exact comments were:
He’s a lovely man. He’s a great doctor, and everybody else thinks we suck. That’s all I know what to tell you. I can’t understand what he’s saying half the time. He’s a brilliant guy but I don’t think he has a clue about what’s going on in the Middle East. So what can I say? I don’t know. I’m just doing the best I can. I’m going to do well in New Hampshire.
Meanwhile, Graham has polled at a whopping one percent in New Hampshire.
Graham frequently appears on national talk shows and is known for his hawkish foreign policy views.
