Trump Remarks on Putin Like Saying Hitler ‘Good Guy’: Graham

"I think this is the biggest miscalculation since people thought Hitler was a good guy," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says of Donald Trump’s praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin in a forum last night.

  • "The bottom line is if you’re running to be the leader of the free world and you find admiration for Putin, then I think you’re missing the boat on who Putin is"

  • "Other than destroying every instrument of democracy in his own country, having opposition people killed, dismembering neighbors through military force, and being the benefactor of the butcher of Damascus, he’s a good guy"
  • "This miscalculation by Trump unnerves me to my core, and Hillary Clinton’s performance last night was equally unnerving"
    • "I thought she was just scared to death of the left"
  • Says he’s not voting for Libertarian Gary Johnson
    • "I may write in John McCain"
