After Lindsey Graham said Trump should "stop being a jackass" on Tuesday morning, Trump responded by calling the South Carolina Republican "an idiot" during a rambling speech in the senator's home state. Trump didn't stop there, though. He then gave the crowd what he said was Graham's cellphone number and urged them to call it.
.@CBSNews can confirm that the number Trump just read out on stage in South Carolina is Lindsey Graham's cell number.— DJ Judd (@juddzeez) July 21, 2015
Trump currently leads the GOP field in national polls.
Update 1:15 p.m.: When dialed, the number Trump gave out goes directly to an automated voicemail account that says "Lindsey Graham is not available." The account's inbox is, unsurprisingly, full.
