We got the Senator from South Carolina Friday at Reagan National Airport, and asked him about Handler’s #NationalComingOutDay tweet. Instead of blasting her — as many others have — Graham insisted Chelsea had every right to say whatever she wants. As he put it … it’s a free country.

Graham did tell us, “To the extent that it matters, I’m not gay” — but it was definitely a measured response.
Graham gave us his own take on belittling people for the sake of comedy.
BTW … it’s not the first time Chelsea’s directed a homophobic tweet at Graham. She did it back in January asking, “@LindseyGrahamSC what kind of d*** sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?”
She’s standing by her words. Handler hasn’t deleted either tweet.
