While Republican presidential candidates continued scream-debating in Houston last night, Sen. Lindsey Graham took a shot at his former challengers with a series of insults that capture the insanity that is the remaining GOP presidential field.
The South Carolina senator, who was speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner, nailed it with the following jabs:

Graham: Ben Carson is the nice guy in the race, and he tried to kill his cousin. #wpcfdinner

“If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, no one would convict you.” — Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

“A good Republican would defend Ted Cruz after tonight. That ain’t happening.” — Lindsey Graham #wpcfdinner

At one point, Graham donned Donald Trump’s trademark “Make America Great Again” cap and sarcastically endorsed the real estate magnate.
We’d say we miss you, Lindsey, but this is the party Republicans built.
