“How can President Trump avoid prosecution in New York?” Graham tweeted Friday, with a “thinky face” emoji.
He then answered his own question: “On the way to the DA’s office on Tuesday, Trump should smash some windows, rob a few shops and punch a cop. He would be released IMMEDIATELY!”
This was presumably meant to be some kind of joke implying that criminals can get away with anything in liberal, soft-on-crime New York. Or maybe Graham really is recommending that the former president physically attack a police officer ― you know, like some of his supporters have done.
The senator’s tweet left many Twitter users shocked, but not surprised.
