Sen. Graham: I'm 'the Happiest Dude in America Right Now'

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

Sen. Lindsey Graham has once again praised President Donald Trump — another 180-degree turn from when the South Carolina Republican ripped the future commander in chief as a "jackass."

"I am like the happiest dude in America right now," Graham said Wednesday on Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

"We've got a president and a national security team that I've been dreaming of for eight years.

"In 80 days he's done more to correct the world, President Trump, than [former President Barack] Obama did in eight years."

And in a direct pitch to Trump, Graham peered into the camera and said: "I am all in Donald, keep it up. I'm sure you're watching. Don't let these guys talk you out of being tough."

Last month, Graham gushed over Trump after the two sat down for a lunchtime powwow.

"How good was the meeting? I gave him my new cell phone number," Graham said at the time, referring to how Trump once read the Palmetto State lawmaker's personal cell phone number out loud.

Graham, who briefly ran against Trump last year for the Republican presidential nomination, was one of the future president's harshest critics.

He slammed Trump as a "jackass" for criticizing Sen. John McCain's war record and once urged the Republican Party to tell the real-estate tycoon to "go to hell."

Trump, in return, called Graham a "lightweight" and an "idiot."

Last January, Graham, appearing on "CBS This Morning," jokingly asked aloud whether he was on Trump's "kill list," adding, "that would be good to know."
