Graham Slams Iran Deal As 'a North Korea in the Making'
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) tonight sounded off on a possible nuclear weapons deal with Iran.
“The deal that [President Barack Obama] is contemplating is a disaster, it is a North Korea in the making, and I would oppose it with every ounce of my being,” Graham said.
Graham said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s explanation today of the threat of Iran was “better than any American politician could have done.”
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi slammed Netanyahu's speech as “condescending.”
Bloomberg View reported:
In a private fund-raiser after the speech, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham pointed to Pelosi’s behavior as evidence that a Republican majority is better for those who support Israel. “Did you see Nancy Pelosi on the floor. Complete disgust,” he said, according to one attendee. “If you can get through all the surgeries, there’s disgust.”
Graham tonight responded to that report and apologized for his remarks.
“I don’t know exactly what I said, but I’ll assume that that is accurate and apologize because two wrongs don’t make a right,” he said, explaining that his attempt at humor was in poor taste.
He added, “One thing I won’t apologize for is that the tension in this town over what to do about Iran should be focused on the Iranians and not the prime minister of Israel.”
Graham also touched on the Hillary Clinton email controversy and a possible 2016 run.
