WATCH: Lindsey Graham Offers Tepid Endorsement of Ted Cruz — He’s Just ‘Partially Crazy’

In one of the more startling and eye-opening interviews I’ve seen in this election cycle, South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham offers up an explanation on The Daily Show to why he is endorsing Ted Cruz over Donald Trump.

With some prodding from host Trevor Noah, Graham then opens up on the bigger issues facing the Republican Party.

His endorsement of Cruz? Tepid.

“He’s not completely crazy,” Graham said of Cruz. “Partially crazy?” Noah asked. Graham fired back: “That works in Washington.”

Noah later plays a clip for Graham in which he’s asked if he’d prefer Cruz or Trump. Graham’s response: “It’s like being shot or being poisoned. What does it really matter?”

He finishes: “I’m saying my party is completely screwed up … if it were up to me, we wouldn’t nominate anyone. We’d start all over again.”
