Little did he know that AOC was ready to hit Graham with one of her signature zingers:
Lindsey Graham has received a check from the government every month since 1995. https://t.co/LCUVCv63xt

Wow, she sure got him and definitely doesn’t look like a petty idiot or anything.
That's his employer, you doorknob

Don’t ask her where Bernie Sanders’ paychecks have been coming from.
