A fired up Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took a shot at White House staff during an impromptu talk with the press after the South Carolina senator interrogated DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a televised hearing.
At issue for Graham is what happened in a two hour-span last Thursday when he and Democratic Senator Dick Durbin (IL) thought President Donald Trump had agreed with their bipartisan plan to resolve the immigration issue after it was presented to him last Tuesday.
Graham laid the blame on Trump’s staff for blowing up the deal and, when asked if he was talking about Kelly, Graham bluntly stated, “He is a very fine man, but he is on staff.”
“When you say something happened between Tuesday and Thursday, do you mean that the president got bad advice from someone on his staff?” Graham was asked.
‘Yeah, I think someone on his staff gave him really bad advice between 10:00 and 12:00 on Thursday” Graham replied, saying he wasn’t going to blame the turnaround on the president.
Saying Americans deserve better and the immigration stalemate needs to be fixed, Graham added, “What we need in order to do better is a reliable partner at the White House. Somebody like the president who showed up on Tuesday. We cannot do this with people in charge at the White House who have an irrational view of how to fix immigration.”

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.
The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."
There's little mystery about how the night will go down.
Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
Trump accuses newspaper of ‘virtual act of treason’ for reporting on a story that made him look awful
President Donald Trump attacked an American newspaper for reporting a story that made him look bad.
"Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. (sic) This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country ... also, not true," the commander-in-chief tweeted on Saturday evening.
"Anything goes with our corrupt news media today," Trump argued.
