"If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you.” 

"The nice guy is Ben Carson. He tried to kill his cousin, and hit his mother in the head with a hammer. He’s the one we all like."

He got more serious on Trump, saying, "The Donald, I am literally running out of adjectives. I don’t know how I can best describe Donald Trump, but I can say this, that I don’t think he understands what makes America great. And I know I’m supposed to be funny. I’m not really happy about where the country is right now.”

The implosion is pretty entertaining but unfortunately we're left with a frightening aftermath.
Graham also backed Jeb, toes the party right-side hard, and is hugely representative of the problem within the GOP.  If he (and the party itself) would back a more moderate candidate, one that is more likable and experienced, like Kasich, ex-GOP supporters like me would not feel as we do about the party.  Graham is ripping the likely GOP dog in the fight in November and should shut his mouth already. His kind are making it easier for the dems to win.
