Lindsey Graham says Democrat job plans like ‘buying a Book of Manners’ from Trump

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham didn’t mince words Tuesday night as he watched the Democratic presidential debate — and he also didn’t miss a chance to poke a little fun at President Donald Trump.

“Listening to Democrats talk about how to create more jobs…….would be like buying a Book of Manners written by President @realDonaldTrump,” the Republican senator said on Twitter.

Twelve candidates fighting for the Democratic presidential nomination participated in the three-hour debate Tuesday night, talking gun policy, reproductive rights, Syria, Ukraine, healthcare and other big issues facing the country, The New York Times reports.

CNN, which hosted the debate with the Times, said Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren was the front-runner for the nomination going into the debate.

“And on Tuesday night in Ohio, her 11 rivals acted like it,” CNN said.

“Warren was under attack all night,” CNN reported. The other leading candidate, Joe Biden, answered questions about his son’s involvement in Ukraine, CNN said.
