Republican Senator Lindsey Graham face massive anger as he walked into a crowd of angry Trump supporters inside Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
As Graham was escorted by police from a terminal, a group of patriots chanted “traitor” and screamed, “you work for us.”
The incident comes after Graham condemned Trump’s response to a violent mob at the US Capitol and allegations of election fraud.
“One day you will not be able to walk down the street,” one woman yells in video shared by Politico’s Daniel Lippman.
“Today is the day.”
Another woman calls Graham a “garbage human being” and demands he “audit the vote.”
“You better enjoy GITMO,” she yells.
Graham sharply criticized Trump on Thursday in the aftermath of the riots at the US Capitol.
“When it comes to accountability, the president needs to understand that his actions were the problem, not the solution,” Graham said during a news conference.
“It breaks my heart that my friend, a president of consequence, would allow yesterday to happen, and it will be a major part of his presidency,” he said.
“It was a self-inflicted wound.”
The South Carolina senator also said that “enough is enough” after rioters breached the Capitol building and forced Congress to evacuate.
“There’s been a constant effort by people from the president’s legal team to provide misinformation, to distort the facts, to make accusations that cannot be proven. That needs to stop,” Graham said on Thursday.
“The rally yesterday was unseemly, it got out of hand, and a good friend of mine Rudy Giuliani did not help,” he added.
