Senator Lindsay Graham, whose cell number was outed by Trump, shows you how to destroy a phone
Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump recently found a new rival to bully in South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. Trump, who has been leading the pack in the latest polls despite making a series of comments that some might call absurd, turned his attention to Senator Graham after the Senator called Trump a "jackass." 

The real estate mogul got his revenge. During a speech covered widely by the media, Trump gave out Graham's cellphone number to the public. Within minutes, Senator Graham's voice mailbox was full.

Trump, though, might have done Graham a favor. The Senator had been carrying an outdated Samsung flip phone. Now that the public knew the number to that phone, Graham decided that this would be a good time to get rid of it and move up to a smartphone. While Graham is obviously not a techie, he did manage to fire off a tweet that revealed his intention to get a new phone. "iPhone or Android?" the Senator tweeted.

Graham turned to YouTube to share a funny video he made about the different ways to destroy a cellphone. Starring Senator Graham and his Samsung flip, the video shows Graham using a meat cleaver, a blender, a putter and other methods to destroy the phone. While the Senator probably already has purchased his new smartphone, there is no word on whether he bought an iPhone or Android handset.

Graham probably thinks that since he has to now change his phone number, that the phone would now be useless. Definitely would be believable with how out-of-touch so many politicians are. Donald Trump for President in 2016 as we don't need another (out-of-touch) career politician under control by special interest groups. The Donald is his own man and likely isn't for sale.

If any one is for sale, he is. He only thinks of money and himself. I'm not an American but if he gets elected, the general population is quite dumb.

Trust me when I say this, we are dumb, but Donald Trump has as much chance of occupying 1600 Pennsylvania as the CambodianPatriot clones. If he somehow ends up the Republican nominee, the Democrats won't have to spend much to put another Democrat back in the White House.

I am ashamed to call myself American when people like Trump are at the top of the polls to lead this country. I also find it offensive to put those two flags together. Trump doesn't have enough back bone to fight for anyone but himself, not for his country, not for equality, and not for the poor. He's everything that's wrong with this country. As a Republican I can't stand Hillary but Trump is even worse. As the US slips down the list of best countries to live in, I know more and more people who are considering leaving. I mean even Greece is 13 places ahead of us for best places to live! The US is around 36th place, but when people are still flying the confederate flat I'm surprised we're even that high. (we need to separate southern pride from crimes against humanity, and southerners more than anyone should be in favor of rebranding themselves in a positive way)

I Hate turning phone arena into politics but come on. Please the confederate flag is old, ill tell you which flag killed 600,000 blacks recently, and it flies on US soil and supported by the government and is law. Hell if you want real history, know that the first black officer in the civil war was in the south, black slave owners (meaning the owner was black not white) volunteered in the south to keep slavery, the first life time slave was a white slaved owned by a black owner. While numbers were far in favor of black slaves, there was still thousand or so black owners. The Irish were treated just as craptastic IMO. Go ahead, go to Greece (where the best places to live are not about economy by any means). I rather live in a country where I have more opportunity. As well, I live in the only State in the Union that has a dual language constitution. I would choose my city over many many places, save a few European cities, and it's not for their economy status by anymeans, it would be for my love of old history, view, and nothing more. I don't really like Trump but he is saying what many feel, regardless of dem/rep sides, but are just to PC to actually say it.

Even bad publicity can be good publicity. Often better than no publicity. You must be an open borders guy.

You don't have to be an open borders guy to think Trump is a ballsack. You just need to have an IQ above 65.

If you're leveraging that against the last four U.S. Presidential elections, boy are you in for a real treat. All the politicians belong to the SAME country club. Figure it out...

True, the real power is never the president anyway but all the conglomerates and filthy rich.

He owns a billion dollar empire built on the hundreds of million dollar empire his father left him, and he has bankrupted it multiple times. Have you ever stayed in a Trump hotel? Cheap, ugly and tacky, just like him.

They're both idiots as far as I'm concerned. I'm actually glad Trump is in the lead, it is destroying the Republican party.
