Senator Lindsey Graham Just Tweeted In Support Of Trump—And Twitter Is Furious

Last night, Democrat Doug Jones won the Alabama Senate Election with a margin of around 1.5%. The first Democratic senator from the state in over two decades, Jones beat Republican opponent Roy Moore, who was accused of sexual misconduct. 

After initially taking to Twitter to congratulate Jones, President Donald Trump claimed this morning that he had always said Roy Moore, who he had endorsed, wouldn't win the race. 

President Donald Trump endorsed candidate Luther Strange in the primaries, but endorsed Moore when he beat Strange. 

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina also took to Twitter this morning, saying that Republicans should have followed President Trump's lead in backing Strange. 

Unsurprisingly, social media found this claim strange since President Trump had also endorsed Moore and because many Trump supporters saw Strange as an establishment politician.
