Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Monday heaped praise on President Donald Trump just a day after the commander in chief took a shot at deceased Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

In a tweet on Sunday, Trump said that McCain had been “last in his class” at Annapolis Naval Academy. The president also fumed at the late senator for allegedly fueling the investigation into Russian attacks on the 2016 U.S. election.

Graham, who was purportedly one of McCain’s best friends, issued a statement on Twitter defending the war hero.

“Nothing about his service will ever be changed or diminished,” Graham wrote.

But at an event in South Carolina on Monday, Graham expressed affection for the president, according to Post and Courier correspondent Caitlin Byrd.

“I’ve come to like him, and he likes him…it makes for a great working relationship,” Graham reportedly joked. “When it comes to Trump we need to help him.”

"If we are at war, who is the enemy?" asks Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor for The Washington Post in a smart piece that examines the question of who constitutes a target for a self-declared "wartime president."

While it is obvious that the enemy, in this case, is a tiny, sticky, invisible microbe that stubbornly gloms onto surfaces or leaps through the air to weaponize subway cars or shared gym equipment or a touch to the face.

A new report from The Atlantic's McKay Coppins reveals that some conservative Trump supporters are intentionally defying recommended social distancing protocols as a way to stick it to their political foes.

In his article, Coppins interviews Georgia resident Geoff Frost, who says that older conservatives who play at his local country club have made a habit of blowing off recommendations against shaking hands and sharing golf carts during the worst public health crisis the United States has faced in decades.
