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

By Mark Pygas

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. 

He tweeted, "Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!" Then followed it up with "The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election.  I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!"
