Sen. Lindsey Graham, Donald Trump -- (screeshot/AFP)

One day after expressing concern that the Trump administration might have been aware of an offer by the Russians to pay a bounty for the murder of U.S. military members by terrorists, the South Carolina Republican was seen heading out for a round of golf with the embattled president.

Following the bombshell report from the New York Times, Graham tweeted, “Imperative Congress get to the bottom of recent media reports that Russian GRU units in Afghanistan have offered to pay the Taliban to kill American soldiers with the goal of pushing America out of the region.”

Those concerns didn’t seem to be enough for Graham to keep his distance from the president who was implicated in the report, with CNN’s Kaitlan Collin’s tweeting, “Dressed for golf, President Trump just left the White House with Sen. Lindsey Graham.”

That, naturally, set off Twitter users wondering what the two would be talking about on the greens with one commenter labeling it “Treason on the links.”

CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."

"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"

At his first 2020 presidential debate, Trump was asked if he would speak out against the extremist groups.

"Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacist and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down?" moderator Chris Wallace asked the president.

"I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing," Trump complained. "I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace."

"Do it, sir," Wallace said.

"Say it," Democratic candidate Joe Biden chimed in.
