Graham to Protester: 'Why Don't We Dunk Him in Water and See if He Floats'

Conservative social media users agree: Lindsey Graham 2.0 is the best.

While discussing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation battle with reporters on Thursday, a protester interrupted demanding Kavanaugh take a polygraph test.

"You've humiliated this guy enough and there seems to be no bottom for some of you," Graham first told the woman.

After badgering him some more, the South Carolina Republican turned around and quipped: "Why don't we dunk him in water and see if he floats?" 

He then returned to addressing reporters. 

"The bottom line here: process," Graham said. "Most all Democrats had made up their mind [before the allegations surfaced]. Sen. [Mazie] Hirono [(D-Hawaii)] said, 'well the goal here is to delay the hearing past the midterms so we can fill the seat.' "

"Now, she was foolish enough to say that. Are we smart enough to believe her? I actually do believe her," Graham said. "That's the goal. It's not about the truth."

"Enough," Graham told reporters. "Enough already, let's vote."
