Handler caught some flak for “outing” Graham. But when TMZ caught up with the senator at the Ronald Reagan airport in Washington, D.C., Graham dismissed the tweet.
“It’s a free country, she can say whatever she wants to say, I don’t care,” Graham said.
“She knows zero about me,” Graham continued. “To the extent that it matters, I’m not gay.”
“These comments … I don’t know how this makes us a better country.”
