Donald Trump Just Gave Out Lindsey Graham’s Cellphone Number

After John McCain said that Donald Trump was bringing out the “crazies” on the campaign trail, Donald Trump responded this past weekend by questioning the Arizona Republican’s status as a war hero.

After Lindsey Graham said Trump should “stop being a jackass” on Tuesday morning, Trump responded by calling the South Carolina Republican “an idiot” during a rambling speech in the senator’s home state. Trump didn’t stop there, though. He then gave the crowd what he said was Graham’s cellphone number and urged them to call it.

Trump currently leads the GOP field in national polls.

Update 1:15 p.m.: When dialed, the number Trump gave out goes directly to an automated voicemail account that says “Lindsey Graham is not available.” The account’s inbox is, unsurprisingly, full.
